Prunella Vachon. Living Room. August 02nd , 2018.
Lighting is a big deal when it comes to the feel of the room. Subtle changes in the lighting can make big differences. There are lots of ways to do that other than the standard light that you have currently. The easiest way is through lamps, either through table or floor lamps. I prefer floor lamps because you can move them about the house easily and experiment with how they look in different positions.
If your chosen themes accommodate one another, you can create a unifying theme. Consider this: your spouse wants an Asian theme, your teenage daughter wants a gothic theme and you want a tropical theme. In such varied combination you may decide to do an around-the-world theme in your living room; this is like a miniature version of Disney's Epcot. You could incorporate Asian tropic plants, dragons and samurai swords that would incorporate all three themes. The point is, regardless of the themes, there is common ground to be found.
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 already have lamps then you can just change the lamp shades and this can affect the lighting. Lamp shades are a really cost effective way of doing things. Just keep it simple and experiment with different options.
Country living room ideas should really focus around the mantle and the fireplace. The other pieces should be more neutral with eyelet lace curtains or a tapestry rug. This is a selling feature in your home and it's also a much more traditional focal point than the TV. This can be a warm gathering area whether or not the fireplace is actually in use.
