Living room decoration can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. It should be a fun process where you end with a designed space you are excited to show all of your friends and family while you enjoy it for years to come.
Take Stock of Your Current Living Room Furnishing
Look at your existing furniture and home decor items in your living room to determine the ones you want to keep as part of your new living room design, and the ones you want to remove. Look for items that are outdated, broken or just do not match the look you are going for.
Extra tip: Once you have chosen the items you do not want any longer you can donate the items that are in good shape to charity.
Set The Mood With Color
The color of your walls, trim, floor, ceiling, furniture and decor all set the tone for your room. Blues and greens have a calming effect, where reds and yellows are energizing colors. If you are using boldly-colored furniture or accent pieces, you may want to use neutral color walls to further highlight the boldly colored furniture.
Extra tip: If you are unsure where you want to start with a color pallete for your room look to your closet. Picking colors from your closet that you love wearing every day will also help to pick colors you could live with on your walls and furniture every day.
