Create An Accent Wall

Most people skip right to picking a color that pops for their accent wall, but it’s important to know that your accent wall doesn’t actually have to be a painted wall. You could have a wall that is turned into a giant bookcase, if you are a voracious reader. Other options include having that one wall wallpapered, using would design, brick, or even making it the only textured wall in the room.

If you insist on using paint in a color that pops, pick something that will go with the decor you have for the room. Maybe a minor color found in your multicolored couch. This will help a less significant color found about the room pop more, and become a little more significant.

Pick The Right Furnishing

If people are going to spending time relaxing and playing games in this room then you are going to want to comfy seating. If you have children in your home, you also want to have some child friendly seating. You don’t need a white leather couch to have a fancy living room.

Couches, loveseats, recliners, end tables, and even a coffee table are a must. If you entertain guests often you may also want some kind of comfortable folding chair that you can add to the room in case you run out of seating. Things like bean bag chairs can be fun for kids and adults alike.

Use Throw Pillows

If you want to add a little fashion and whimsy to your living room, add some throw pillows. Pick out some of the general colors in the room and get solid colored pillows that will help draw out some of those colors, or even get some in contrasting colors to give it even more umph. You can use throw pillows on your couch, chairs, and even the love seat. If your furniture are all solid colors, pick some pillows with some fun patterns.

What About Window Covering?

You can do the simple and lazy thing and chose vertical blinds for your windows, which can be a little easier to control light that is coming into your living room. Or, you can get a little more fancy with the many curtain choices that exist in the world. Your options can include different textures, different materials, different colors, and even different patterns.

Art And Other Essential Decor
