Your living room decor reflects who you are, what you believe, and how you want people to see you.
The living room is the heart of the home; it’s where you entertain friends, spend quality time with family, and unwind after a long day.
Modern living room ideas combine fashion with form and function, allowing you to infuse your home with a fresh new look.
Here are some of our best ideas for designing the ideal living room:
Make a Space Plan
You must first consider the space you are working with before you begin to recreate your workspace. Is the space rectangular or square? Is the shape difficult to work with? Is the space open to the rest of the floor? What you can do in your space is determined by its dimensions. Traditional classic French designs, for example, feature large floral patterns and are often accompanied by large furniture and accessories. In a large room, this looks great, but in a small space, it can seem cluttered.
Using rugs to establish definition is an easy way to define a seating area or living space, whether you have a self-contained traditional room or a wide open-plan space.
You can create an interior design that draws the eye from one part of the room to another by using tone, color, and pattern. A well-thought-out living room design can be calming to the soul, and maintaining a strong sense of order is an important part of that.
Look for rugs with complementary patterns if you want to combine two components. Using two rugs of the same design but in opposite colorways can also create a visually pleasing contrast that doesn’t distract from the space.
