Interior design for living rooms

The red walls and furniture give the above living room a bold, rich feel. The painted floral wall design below are a creative way to add whimsy to an otherwise modern interior.





Orange is a color that tends to “pop” in a big way.  Just one large orange piece of furniture, like the over-sized couch or painted orange wall, is enough to animate the interior space with color.

With a little bit of thought and planning you will be able to create a room that is special, by just making a few changes. It doesn’t matter what your taste is, maybe it is one of a modern contemporary look, or maybe you prefer a style that is more traditional. At the end of the day, there are many principles involved with a successful design that are more or less the same whatever your preferred taste is. Also if you take time to sit back and think, with a little bit of imagination you will be able to realise that designing and giving a fresh approach to a living room does not have to be expensive.


Every room that has been successfully designed will have a focal point to it, in the living room it is more than likely to be the television. Nowadays most televisions in people’s homes are flat screen TVs, and whilst some of them are very sleek looking, when they’re turned off, they are actually not that attractive, and can detract from other aspects of your living room. One thing you could try doing is concealing it in some way, maybe you can place it in a cabinet that has a sliding door that opens and closes. Or perhaps you could try hanging it on the wall to allow for other pieces of furniture to be placed within the room.

Other simple things that you can do that will update your room is to change your lounge curtains, perhaps you have had them hanging up for a number of years and now they’re beginning to seem dull and outdated. Because there is a huge variety of fabrics to choose from, lounge curtains don’t have to be expensive; ready made curtains are available in hundreds of different colours, styles and patterns and they certainly will make a huge difference to your living room.
