Give Your Living Room A New Look With A Few Small Changes

They don’t call it the Living Room for nothing – this is the heart of your home and updating it with just the right touches can be easy and affordable.

Throw On Some Pillows

Once you have your key furniture pieces in a room, it’s time to “throw” in a few accessories. Add texture and versatility with a sumptuous throw draped over the back of your sofa. Scatter throw pillows in an array of patterns and fabrics across your seating area, it adds interest to the room, while pulling it together with style.

Lighting

Light the Way

There’s no better way to create ambiance than with well-placed lighting in your living room. Use table or floor lamps to help light your seating areas, while sconces and wallchiere lamps can add illumination to an otherwise bare wall space. Accent lamps can provide ambient lighting while serving double design duty. From a Serendipity Floor Lamp to subtly lit bamboo reeds, a lamp can add just the right touch to express your individual style.

Wall Art

Create a Collage

Sometimes you want to make a statement with one key piece of art gracing your wall, but a collage of your favorite wall art offers the opportunity to be more eclectic. Artfully arrange candle sconces, metal scrollwork, canvas prints or wall plaques to express your personality or change up your seasonal decor.

home decorating Accent Pieces

Go Monochromatic

Let one central hue color your world, then use accent pieces to add contrast. Even when you select one main color, there is a wide range of colors to select from within that color. For instance, a white palette can include: ivory, ice, optic, cream, beige, tan, frost, silver, pearl and more. The subtle variance of hues is what can be your most intriguing design element.

Contemporary Area Rug

Define Your Space From the Ground Up

The addition of an area rug can not only add color and contrast to your room, but it can also help define your space. Use multiple rugs to help distinguish seating areas and direct the flow of the room.
