Lamp shades are a great way of influencing light if you already have the right light fittings. You don't need to buy expensive lamp shades, just think about the likely effect on the room and make your decision from there.
If your chosen themes accommodate one another, you can create a unifying theme. Consider this: your spouse wants an Asian theme, your teenage daughter wants a gothic theme and you want a tropical theme. In such varied combination you may decide to do an around-the-world theme in your living room; this is like a miniature version of Disney's Epcot. You could incorporate Asian tropic plants, dragons and samurai swords that would incorporate all three themes. The point is, regardless of the themes, there is common ground to be found.
Country living room ideas should really focus around the mantle and the fireplace. The other pieces should be more neutral with eyelet lace curtains or a tapestry rug. This is a selling feature in your home and it's also a much more traditional focal point than the TV. This can be a warm gathering area whether or not the fireplace is actually in use.
