The mantle should really have a rustic edge to it. If you have a traditional piece then try painting it a country kind of color. This would include a red or blue. Stay away from a stark white or black because this is too traditional and modern. You can even just sand down your paint job to really give it that rustic kind of effect. The wood of your mantle is also very important. In this case it should resemble an oak or a weathered kind of wood. Stay away from a more elegant cherry stain. It's also really important to consider what you hang over your mantle. This could be a humorous sign. You could also have a special family photo taken for the occasion. This could be a picture of everyone in cowboy hats. For more of an artistic flair you could just focus in on a line of cowboy boots. This is a way to get a totally unique family portrait that is also a conversation piece.
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.
Having said that if you do have the money to purchase some new furniture then that is a lot more fun. It is important to set a budget though prior to looking as you know what it is like when you are out shopping and you get carried away with what you see.
Lighting is quite simple sort but it doesn't stop there. You should be thinking about furniture as part of your living room ideas. You can change a lot of furniture but that really isn't necessary. Just by moving a few items that you already have should do the trick.
