Blanche Lejeune. Living Room. March 10th , 2018.
Decorating our home has become a labor of love for my wife and I. By far, our favorite room to decorate has been our living room. This space has become the centerpiece of our home, in addition to being the room we spend the most time in. We've used color, a mix of traditional and contemporary furniture, wall art, and eye-catching accessories to create a stylish living room design that is still functional and comfortable. We hope by giving you some ideas from our own living room we'll spur your creativity and point you in the right direction to making your living room your favorite room.
Having said that if you do have the money to purchase some new furniture then that is a lot more fun. It is important to set a budget though prior to looking as you know what it is like when you are out shopping and you get carried away with what you see.
If you are going out to buy new things then that is a lot more fun. Try to do a bit of research first to find out what styles you like and the types of prices that you will have to pay. This will put you in a much better position when it comes to negotiating.
The color palate of the room is another helpful tool to blend different living room ideas. Even if the décor dramatically contrasts in concept, you can get away with it if the colors blend. If you are determined to have your sports fan décor in your wife's traditional living room, color mediation is a solution. You could tone down the bright colors of a Lakers helmet by using a vintage display case. You could also print pictures in black and white or sepia prints to intertwine the two themes.
The mantle should really have a rustic edge to it. If you have a traditional piece then try painting it a country kind of color. This would include a red or blue. Stay away from a stark white or black because this is too traditional and modern. You can even just sand down your paint job to really give it that rustic kind of effect. The wood of your mantle is also very important. In this case it should resemble an oak or a weathered kind of wood. Stay away from a more elegant cherry stain. It's also really important to consider what you hang over your mantle. This could be a humorous sign. You could also have a special family photo taken for the occasion. This could be a picture of everyone in cowboy hats. For more of an artistic flair you could just focus in on a line of cowboy boots. This is a way to get a totally unique family portrait that is also a conversation piece.
