The living room is usually the hub of the house; a space in which to relax, converse, watch TV and entertain friends. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a room to live in, and shouldn’t look or feel like a sterile showhome. More than any other room in the house, with the possible exception of the main bedroom, a living room should reflect your personality, your way of living.
For a calm uncluttered look go for painted walls in soft, neutral colours, possibly a wood floor with a substantial textured rug and floor length curtains on elegant poles, teamed up with sofas and chairs in plain or self-patterned weaves. For a more flamboyant look add splashes of colour with fabulous cushions, lamps and accessories, or have patterned printed or woven curtains.
As with all aspects of interior design, the key to a successful living room, or indeed any other room, is balance. Keep that in mind, use the right people for the right jobs, and you won’t go far wrong.
