Living Room Decoration Themes

Homeowners are almost always unhappy with their living room décor. They want to have a perfect decoration but often end up using the old and conventional themes. They can avoid this mistake if they follow these themes.

Floor Theme

This theme is based on an entirely floor based decoration. This means that you need to purchase a carpet and spread it on the floor in a neat and clean manner. It is not necessary that you purchase an expensive rug as ordinary synthetic carpets will also do. You will however need to purchase a vacuum cleaner to keep dusts and mites at bay. You can use a small coffee table at the center and place the TV on a wall rack or on a trolley.

Traditional Theme

Traditional living room décor has never fizzled out despite the introduction of new designs and decors. You can however spice up the décor by using newer style of sofas, couches and tables. Old style TV trolleys are no longer in vogue as people now prefer a simple glass table to place their TV and DVD players on. A small glass table will be perfect for the center and you can use two small side tables where you can place vases to boost up the aesthetic value of your living room.

Modern Theme

You can do away with all the tables and vases in this theme. You can instead create a mini bar type décor with stools and couches and a wall mounted TV. If you have space then you can also add the real bar with a couple of cabinets and a countertop. This will create a modern and innovative look. This theme, however, is only good for houses with no children as you will need a homier look in the latter case.

Pick any of these themes and you will have a perfect living room décor.

Living Room Decor Ideas – Spectacular Living Rooms

Whether your living room is a 21 foot length with a large picture window at one end or you live in a tiny apartment and the living room is bijou to say the least, there are living room décor ideas to suit you and your budget. You can go for cozy chic and warm up your living space or go for open-plan with vaulted ceilings and an expanse of herringbone hardwood floor. At the end of your project you will have ended up with a space that you can live in comfortably, decorated according to the space you have available. Are you aiming for a peaceful retreat, full of serenity and harmony or a more user-friendly, basic living space where you feel comfortable slipping your shoes off and putting your feet up.

If I was choosing a color scheme for my living room I would go to the cooler colors on my color wheel chart – the blues and greens which can be used in different shades to achieve a ‘joined-up’ look of cool elegance. I always make sure that, when I paint my ceiling, I use a light shade of the room’s main color on my ceiling so, if my color scheme was blue, I would use the lightest eggshell blue I could find for my ceiling and then a slightly deeper shade of blue for my walls. If you have mouldings you could paint those completely white, or go for a darker shade of blue to both the walls and the ceiling. I would use matt paint on my walls and a paint with some kind of sheen on the mouldings.

For windows, to add height, place the curtain pole as high as possible near to the ceiling. This will give your curtains plenty of drop to achieve an elegant drape. Modern décor arrangements always suggest that the fabric should be allowed to pool on the floor – never in my house. To me, artistic though it evidently is, this ‘pooling’ idea for the fabric is just a dust collector and, if you have dogs like I do, is just asking them to make a bed out of the fabric! Why did I mention this? Find out what the trends are, but that does not mean you have to follow the trends slavishly. Adapt styles to suit you and your lifestyle.

You would think, wouldn’t you, that a large picture placed on the wall in a small room would be overpowering. Surprisingly, it isn’t. I have the tiniest lounge you can imagine and, on the wall above the fireplace I have a really large picture of the Defence of Rourke’s Drift, depicting the British soldiers of ‘B’ Company, South Wales Borderers. This picture is very loud, very busy, with plenty going on in it. However, it looks absolutely fantastic in that room, almost as if the room was made to fit the picture!

Why Indian Wooden Furniture is Perfect Living Room Decor

Furnishing a home is a great experience, but only if it is done the right way. Today, a wide range of living room furniture is available, which can fit any budget, taste and requirement. One of the best available living room decor is Indian wooden furniture. Here are three simple reasons why Indian wooden furniture makes for good living room furniture.

It’s Authentically Different:

Furnishing the home with Indian wooden furniture is the best bet for people who wish to furnish their homes ‘differently’. Very few people would take the time out to decide which kind of Indian furniture would be perfect for their homes and a small percentage of them actually know what Indian furniture is all about. Therefore, one can consider that people wishing to furnish their homes with Indian wooden furniture are a niche in themselves!

It’s Beautiful:

India is one of the countries in the world with the oldest cultures, and it shows in almost anything that originates from India. The food, the furniture, the lifestyle, etc all have the distinct stamp of Indian culture, which only adds to the beauty and aura of Indian furniture. Also, it is a misconception that Indian furniture is either too heavily made up or will have such intricate designs that none of them will match your home. Today, there is modern as well as authentic antique Indian furniture available today. The modern furniture carries the durability that Indian furniture is known for, and takes from the creativity of the new generation – the perfect fusion between the best aspects of the past and the present.

It’s Durable:

The home, furniture and hearth have a special place in Indian culture. In fact, there are several people who live in an ancestral home all their lives. This is true in the rural as well urban India. Therefore, it goes without saying that Indian furniture also plays a very important role in an average Indian’s life. Some part of furnishings, like the sandook, or the cupboard is actually meant to be family heirlooms. Therefore, they are built very strong an durable – which only adds to the quality of the product that you are buying.
