Living room attracts attention more than other rooms in the house or apartment. It is the center of the whole dwelling. Here the whole family is gathering in the evenings, the meetings with friends happen here, you watch your favorite films and hold intimate conversations here.
The living room often has a key role in the interior. Even if you do not want to do a global repair, there is always the option to renew, refresh and enliven this room.
At the creation of an interior room the particular attention is paid to the curtains. They make the room more festive and emphasize the special purpose of space. Depending on the style of interior design and personal preference for this room you can choose long curtains (to the floor) or a shortened version (up to the window sill).
The curtains of brocade, velvet, silk will attach a classic character to the interior. Pelmets or hand embroidered tulle will add solemnity and presentable look. At the country-style it is best to use only light fabrics from calico, cotton or linen.
In the classical style pictures and mirrors framed in luxurious frame look beautiful. Carpets, tapestries, panels, upholstered, candlesticks and wall sconces are considered as a traditional decoration.
To create an urban style in the design of the walls you should use modern paintings with flat frames, large posters, narrow shelves for pictures …
At Provence style decorative plates and botanical cards within and without look uncommonly.
For freshening up the wall in the living room, you can use light textiles or wallpaper of a different color. Black-and-white photos with pictures and stories from different eras are an interesting solution for retro-style.
Vinyl discs and posters of old movies can also be a wonderful decoration of the interior.
As an unusual and bright interior detail, you can use an aquarium with fish. It is able to give positive emotions, to attract the attention of visitors and become a recreation area. Moving fish and splash of water are calming and relaxing. Plus, due to the fact that the water is always present in the aquarium, the air in the living room is humidified.
Soft low ottomans are integral elements of the living room and play not only a functional role (it is pleasant to rest on them), but also a decorative one.
Upholstery should be chosen in accordance with the general interior design. Leather poufs make space solid and presentable. Textile versions of velvet or velour lounge give more warmth and comfort. The same can be said about knitted poufs.
Although today many refuse carpets in favor of modern coatings, this element of the decor makes the room more comfortable, cozy and homely.
Fashion trend today is the carpet in the tone of the floor. But beware: this only applies to light floors. For dark floors you should buy contrast carpets.
