As the name suggests, living room is the area which helps you to actually move around a bit, socialize a bit, gather a bit and gives plenty of chance for flaunting your furniture, the interior decoration and of course your taste in certain things.
However, do not forget that all living rooms need to ‘live’, i.e. need to breathe and yes the more empty your living rooms are, the more there is a chance of positive vibes flowing in and helping with the over-all ambience of your total home.
That does not however mean that you have to strip your room off every element of human life like furniture, paintings a showcase or whatever it is that you lust for. The idea is simply not to over crowd the room, which will be the entry point of your house.
If however, there is plenty of space and is under an open plan, there is so much that you can do. First, if you have a pillar, make sure that you decorate it well. Since your dining table and kitchen counter will be at the same place, make sure that you mix the both to serve multiple purposes. The idea is to find our focal point really soon and adjust your living room furniture according to it.
Suppose, if you have a television and a closed plan, make sure to adjust your furniture around your television. It should be done in a manner, which will enable a good view from all parts of the living room and yet leave space for moving around.
If windows are something you like and wish to flaunt, be sure to choose curtains which either match the covers of your furniture cushions or at least color co-ordinate them. Try to make it colorful with themes of your choice as well.
Since so many options in painting are available, you can mix and match as well.
