Are you confused as to how to decorate your living room? Are you looking for ways to personalize your space and give it some flair? If so, here are a few living room decorating ideas to get you started.
Start With Magazines
The first place I always start when decorating is to look through current issues of home decor magazines. This will give you an idea of the different styles and colors you like best. When you come across a picture of a room you really like, tear out the picture and keep it in a folder so you can go back to it later.
After leafing through a few magazines, you should have a better understanding of how you would like to see your new living room decorated. Keep in mind that you are looking something in the pictures you like, whether it may be the drapes, paint color, or the accessories. You don’t have to like the whole room, just keep the picture if there is at least something in particular you like.
Mix It Up
Many people feel that everything must match perfectly when decorating a room. This is a dated and boring way to put together a room. Try mixing and matching colors and prints. If you have a hard time with colors, ask someone you know who has an eye for color and get her opinion on your selections.
My advice would be to pick them out yourself first, then get a second opinion. After all, this is your living space we are talking about. Don’t choose something just because someone else likes it.
Some of the most beautiful living rooms I have seen tend to incorporate different looks or styles. For instance, a modern looking room might have a couple of old antique accessories thrown in. A rustic looking room might have some industrial or modern pieces incorporated into the room. Use your imagination and have fun with it.
