When it comes to your living space, finding the perfect balance between design and comfort is not easy. While checking out home décor ideas for living room styles it’s easy to stumble across designs that sway too far in one direction or another.
To help you get the perfect balance, here are seven ideas that will keep your living room looking great without losing its sense of comfort.
1. Add Hints of Red
Red is a powerful color. It gets people excited, talking and enjoying their time in your home. It’s perfect for your living room. If you’re feeling bold, paint the walls a coral red. If you want to tame it a little bit but still incorporate red into your living room decor, add flooring with a red tint. This will pop when you add small accessories with red hues such as flowers or candles.
2. Less is More
Your furniture should not overwhelm your living space. When it comes to furnishing your space, less bulk gives you more room to walk and move. This eliminates the feeling of being cramped up in tight quarters making it more welcoming to your family and your guests.
3. Combine Old and New
Vintage furnishings and decor is very chic right now. Combine vintage chairs or wall hangings with a modern sofa. The clean lines combined with the old-time decor will make your living room feel welcoming and new-age.
4. Bring Nature Indoors
Nothing makes a your space more vibrant and fresh than a touch of nature. Incorporate flowers, tree branches, and other natural beauties into your living space to keep your area feeling clean and airy. If you’d rather leave nature outdoors, opt for adding wood flooring to your living room and use that as your natural touch.
5. Incorporate Bold Patterns
Patterned slip covers and lamp shades add a bold, yet refreshing look to your living space. You can let your personality shine using patterns to spice up your décor. If you’re feeling vibrant and outgoing, add tribal ikat designs. If you’re more subdued but want to add a touch of pattern, try incorporating polka dots or stripes.
6. Get Organized
In any living room, it’s nice to have your remote controls, reading material, and other odds and ends to keep you and your guests entertained. This can quickly clutter your space and make it look more disjointed than decorated. Organize using baskets and trays. This allows you to keep everything you need in your living room tucked away and easily accessible.
7. Make It Cozy
When it comes down to it, your living room should be cozy and comfortable. Add throw pillows and blankets to your sofa to incorporate a sense of style without heading too far out of the comfort zone. With so many colors and patterns to choose from, these cozy accessories can work double time as chic accessories.
Your living room is meant to be lived in. Don’t let your design bog down your comfort level. What are your favorite comfort decorating tips? Share them with us in the comments below!
