Great Ways to Create a Unique Living Room

Apart from our bedrooms, the living room is probably the room in which you spend most of the time during the day. This is why it’s so important to have this area well designed and looking gorgeous. You’ve probably noticed you feel your best when the interior you’re surrounding yourself with is carefully decorated and reflects your unique personality. This is why we’ve gathered some tips which will help you represent your style through the decor of your living room, so read on.

Strip it all down

Before you start decorating your room, the best advice would be to pick out the basic colour pattern which you can easily build upon. For instance, instead of just going around and getting all the loud decor in one online shopping trip, just look at your place and thoughtfully imagine it bare, free from all the clutter.

White or cream walls, wooden furniture, and natural coloured tapestry are easily transformed through blingy decor which you’ll add later in your designing process. 

Colours and patterns bright up the room

Once you’ve got the basic idea of what styles you love, you’ll know which louder and more colourful pieces to incorporate into your gorgeous room. One of our favourite ways to add some much-needed flair to bleak rooms is through patterned rugs. A lovely cowhide rug could transform any bland room, especially when put under a colourful coffee table or paired with some funky sofa cushions.

Accent walls are where it’s at

Accent walls have been very popular in interior design for quite some time now, and it’s totally understandable as to why. They will give your room a fresh look, and most of the time you won’t even have to spend a lot of money. Get some cheap second-hand picture frames, spray paint them gold, and hang them up above your sofa.

If you’d like to add some more colour to your room, you may even paint the wall or pick an interesting wallpaper pattern. When it comes to accent walls, the choices are truly infinite so you can easily showcase your playfulness through the design.

Plants breathe life into the rooms

Don’t underestimate the power of plants! Apart from bringing new life to your space, the vases and pots in which they’re housed can be a great way to play with patterns and textures.

Before you go out and buy yourself a jungle-worth amount of plants, consider which ones could thrive in your living room. Meaning, it’s important to think about the amount of light your room is getting throughout the day and also your own gardening skills. If you don’t have that green of a thumb and your living room is quite dark, it may be advisable to get a succulent such as sansevieria.

Lighting is crucial

Turn up the lights! Nothing’s better than rooms that are bathed in sunlight during the day, however, some of us are not blessed with naturally bright space. You may make your place shine bright with the addition of lamps and chandeliers.

Luckily, there are so many interesting options on the market nowadays. Currently, interesting floor lamps are all the rage. You may pick statement lamps made of brass and other metals. Think about pairing your table lamp with a floor lamp – matching sets are always intriguing and will amp up the ambiance.

Fill those bookshelves

If you’ve been living at the same place for quite some time, you probably use your bookshelves as a random storage place, rather than a centrepiece showcasing your personality.

Put all the clutter in woven boxes, that you can also display on the shelves, and have some fun with all the empty space. Get lovely vases and fill them with dried up flowers, or display all your favourite books! Don’t forget to carefully place the little trinkets from your travels and pictures of your loved ones.
