Lighting is a big deal when it comes to the feel of the room. Subtle changes in the lighting can make big differences. There are lots of ways to do that other than the standard light that you have currently. The easiest way is through lamps, either through table or floor lamps. I prefer floor lamps because you can move them about the house easily and experiment with how they look in different positions.
The more themes you incorporate, the more creative you will have to be but the process is basically the same. It will also depend how similar or different the themes are. Combining some themes like an Asian theme and Zen theme would be easier than a Zen theme with a rock-star theme. The primary task here is to identify the common factor in the living room ideas. For instance, in combing an Asian and Zen theme, you would incorporate a more natural Asian representation like bamboo, jade and the concept of feng shui. You could also incorporate meditation cushions that would be used in Zen lifestyle and simultaneously represents a classic Asian seating arrangement.
Consult your color wheel to choose an appropriate color scheme. Keep the colors in the same family unless your theme is rainbow. Sometimes contrast looks awesome. For instance a brightly colored, woven bohemian blanket would pop nicely against a modern, stark white couch.
Don't let the living room ideas stop there... you now need to think about the furniture. You don't have to go out and buy new furniture; you can make use of what you have. This is your time to be creative. Start moving things around or think about painting walls.
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.
