A while back I penned a Hub about Design Secrets for Small Apartments Since many of us are downsizing these days, I thought the subject warranted a second look. Don’t place just one small area rug in a large sitting room, as that will make the rest of the room appear disjointed. And never add too many big rugs into a small living room ; you need to keep your limited floor space as airy-looking as possible. Many people assume that the theme of the room doesn’t have much to do with the lighting, but in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The style you pick should dictate the amount of light in the room as well as your choice of lighting fixtures.
As for a modern-style living room where the same space is often used for both work and relaxation, recessed lighting is the way to go since it offers a neat, streamlined look and allows you to adjust the light to suit multiple purposes. Living room accessories include anything from clocks and paintings to flower vases and garbage cans. Choose them wisely, arrange them appropriately, and you’ll have a stunning sitting room without spending big bucks. Great hub, furniture is definitely an important factor when we redesign the living room. Excellent ideas and super easy ways to ake your living room look different and even better 🙂 Voted up and shared!
I wish I had seen this Hub before I had taken on the task of decorating my living room. You may not want to paper your living room in cabbage roses, but you could upholster a chair or just cover some throw pillows in coordinating designs. Lace doilies, lamps, head vases, and a variety of knick knacks were usually found in the living room. If your home doesn’t have a fireplace, you can purchase an electric fireplace to give the room that comfy, cozy feel. This chair is actually in a bedroom at my daughter’s home, but the same idea would apply for a living room. Ideas for walls: a vintage laundry room tin sign, hang a washboard on the wall.
If you have room in your kitchen, one of these cabinets would make an awesome vintage decoration. Display a wooden ironing board with a calico, floral, or ticking cover in your laundry room. I’ve lensrolled you to my Vintage Magazine Ads and my Decorating 1950s Living room lens. Vintage collections do make a room or home more relaxing with a look of peaceful retreat. To achieve a bedroom design that depicts an ethnic style is easy to achieve and fun to put together.
To begin with, the expression ethnic design” is generally used to describe interior design ideas usually associated with furniture and furnishings from Africa, Asia, Native America, etc…, including cultural Hispanic societies. For instance, if you decide on a Moroccan theme bedroom design idea, don’t mix it with other styles such as Asian or Hispanic. Putting together too many styles in your bedroom space can create an untidy look and an overwhelming feel of clutter. For example, the bedroom interior design may feature a modern bed set, dresser, bedside cabinets and a couple of chairs with clean sleek lines.
