Living room decorating made easy

As its name implies, the living room is the room of the house where people tend to do their living – reading, talking, watching TV , etc. It is often also called the "family room" because it tends to be the place where family members spend time together. The key to this multifunctional space is lots of seating and organization.

Living Room Decorating

Living room design can be difficult because the room must accommodate many activities and appeal to all members of the family. Also, unlike bedrooms or bathrooms , the living room is usually an open space, so it has to coordinate with other nearby rooms, which may include the kitchen , dining room or hallway. This doesn't necessarily mean you have to use the same theme for all of these rooms, but the themes you choose should have similar color palettes and furniture styles.

Rather, this distinct design theme takes its cue from the vivid colors and funky patterns of the French countryside. Vibrant reds, yellows, greens and blues are the trademark of French country style, though softer variations can be used. Look for rustic wooden furniture and patterned fabrics, particularly toile or landscape prints.

If you're after a cleaner, sleeker look, try a modern living room , à la the 1950s. Light-colored walls (white, cream or beige) are the staple here, accented by punches of solid black or bright, bold colors such as red. Square or rectangular coffee tables and end tables, painted or polished to a high shine, will emphasize the stark, straight lines of modern sofas and chairs.

For an ultra-sleek, super-chic design, try a contemporary living room. Tone-on-tone color, particularly neutral tones (beige...
