Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Living Rooms and Decor

Posted on: August 17, 2009

Living rooms are hardly used anymore now that great rooms, large family rooms, and casual dining have become the norm. But older homes and apartments still have major living rooms that can be made both beautiful and functional with some careful design.

When you choose your paint colors, go for something bright and cheerful.  It makes the room appear both friendlier and larger.  Area rugs can help to designate various functions, i.e. a game table, conversation grouping, or your entertainment center.  But when you plan this, be careful not to obstruct your traffic patterns.  Nobody wants to weave their way around furniture and plants while balancing a glass of milk and a plate of cookies!

Concentrate as much or more on your accessories than you furniture.  Your personality can show up with less expense by using plants, wall hangings, lamps and curios that reflect your life experiences and tastes.  No room is colder than one with no pictures, plants, and collections.

Your curtains or other window treatments and your area rugs will help to tie your color scheme together.   Accent colors can be brought in with your paintings and knicknacks.

When you have no family room, or basement rec room, it is important to be able to provide seating for guests when you throw a party. Ottomans and benches can double as additional seating.  Stack tables are also useful for placing beverages and dishes for that buffet style meal, you may have to serve to accommodate a larger than normal group.
