Eleanor Ducharme. Living Room. August 19th , 2017.
If you are going out to buy new things then that is a lot more fun. Try to do a bit of research first to find out what styles you like and the types of prices that you will have to pay. This will put you in a much better position when it comes to negotiating.
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.
Another thing that's very important to consider for a country living room is the color of the wall behind the mantle. If you have a smaller fireplace that seems a little bit too modern then just try going with more of a country paint color such as a rustic brown or a natural looking green. Then you can hang a forest print over the fireplace for more of a natural feeling. This can also work well in small spaces because it's almost going to mimic a window but you'll always have a perfect view.
Even if you inherited from Aunt Kay and you aren't particularly keen on the style you can invest in slipcovers for the upholstered pieces in a neutral fabric to unify the pieces, then use your creatively through accents.
This should also really be the focus of your Christmas decorations. Of course hanging stockings from the mantle is traditional. You could also have a lot of fun just by finding a quilted stocking or even sewing some that are either in red, white, and green colors or just play around with a lot of Christmas motifs like trees or berries.
