As with any part of your home, you can use your own travels, stories, family, and interests as a guideline for living room design. This is an easy starting point. We’ve shared a few of our tips below for how to beautify your home with décor that has meaning and importance in your life.
- Start by finding a piece of art that’s important to you, like a rug, a family heirloom, or something else interesting that you can center your living room design on.
- After deciding on one or two items that you want to display, you can formulate the rest of your plan for the space.
- Determine a few colors that you like from those items and use the colors you choose to pick the window treatments, area rugs, wall paint, and other color decisions you’ll need to make for your living room.
- Find light fixtures and other details for the room that are complementary of the other items that you want to have on display.
Using these tips for living room design can give you an opportunity to tell your own story in your home, without feeling like you’re just trying to create a magazine-worthy room that may seem stuffy and uncomfortable for day-to-day living. Your pieces will make your space unique and interesting. It will also be a great conversation starter to have these items on display, and you’ll be able to share about their importance with your guests.
As you work on the living room design that best tells your story, you’ll find it’s exciting and enjoyable to create something that’s both beautiful and inspiring.
