Do you lack ideas to renew the image of the home? The time has come to make the most of the decoration and work more on the interior designs. The goal is that you can convey more personality. If you really think that your living room lacks style, then you have to find the right ideas to change the dynamics and apply other solutions. We help you!
DECORATION FOR COUPLES
Playing with symmetry and repetition is one of the most used resources by decorators. There must be a reason. It is common to find two lamps on a sideboard, two paintings, two vases … What happens when it is not abused? Well, attention is immediately fixed on the pieces.
WELL DRESSED WINDOWS
Curtains or blinds? Better curtains? It’s hard to imagine how they will look, right? With few exceptions, windows and windows are dressed, and it is better to do well. They are unique to raise the decorative level of the living room and make it more welcoming.
Our advice: see the windows of the houses that we publish and let you advise in the store where they are made. The length, its drape, the transparency of the fabric, the colors … If there are several windows in the living room, as a general rule, it is advisable to have the same or similar confection so that the whole is coherent.
In this room, they were dressed with a combination of blinds of different opacity to control the entry of light.
A NEW ENVIRONMENT
Create a cute corner where there was only a white wall before. It will be one more room in the room, which can be decorated in a different style. You could even enhance that wall with paper to highlight it and make it a focal point. The new environment can be just pretty or pretty and also functional.

CUSHIONS THAT LOVE
A living room without accessories is like a garden without flowers. Cushions, in particular, can easily transform the look of a sofa. Toned, contrasting, plain, patterned … A mix of pastel or vibrant colors adds dynamism to the decoration.
WALLS WITH MORE VISUAL INTEREST
The nondescript walls add nothing to the living room. But with a collage of photos, it gains prominence. The advantage of this type of composition, where the photos are arranged on shallow shelves, is that you can change them as many times as you want, add other accessories … Ideally, you alternate photos of different sizes.
It is true that it can be decorated creating an effect of apparent disorder, which provides naturalness, but it would always be apparent. Each object is actually arranged to add style to the environment. And if there is something to hide, it is hidden behind the door of a piece of furniture.
In the case of shelves full of books, it is necessary to order them carefully. It also works to leave some gaps and alternate the books with deco pieces and photographs, in order to lighten the visual weight. In this room, the wall full of books is not so overloaded with the middle section, blank, which houses the fireplace. In the foreground, rattan armchair, by Affari.
Sure that the general lighting of the room is solved with spotlights on the ceiling, but the light they provide has nothing to do with “creating scenes”, depending on the activity you do. It would be a mistake to illuminate the entire living room, if you are only going to read or if you have invited some friends and you are chatting on the sofa.
In the first case, point light with a floor lamp, and in the second, ambient light with table lamps. If you also want to light like a decorator, turn to accent lighting. It is one that highlights a painting, a work of art, a textured coating …
THE POWER OF FLOWERS
An open secret in decoration: flowers always add up, they don’t subtract. Look at the environments that the most prestigious interior designers sign. There are always flowers. In your living room, it can be an imposing flower arrangement or with a wild and natural air.
It can be in a conventional vase and centerpiece or look just as pretty in a makeshift container, like a vintage jug or box. If they are fresh, perfect. If they are artificial, bet only on the quality and with good design because some imitations hardly contribute, but they can detract from the style of the living room.
CREATE A PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT
The living room is a meeting place, where everyone feels comfortable. It is good to think of others, but without giving up your own personality and tastes in the decoration, because then the room will no longer feel like your own. Decorating with evocative pieces, like the boat in this room, or with a special meaning, always makes us feel good. Furniture and accessories, by Laura Ashley.
Bet on mixing furniture and accessories from yesterday and today. Without fear! It is a trend to combine current and Nordic designs with vintage, shabby, and country pieces.
To get it right, look for common ground between them, as in this room where the seats with red upholstery harmonize with the Barcelona armchair in brown leather. And if you cannot find them, you can always give coherence to the whole by changing the color of a piece of furniture or with the cushions, the details of the coffee table, or the carpet.
