6 Modern Décor Ideas for Your Living Room
Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Decorating can be a lot of fun until you run into a blockage of ideas….and sometimes, cash. Guest Blogger, Kenny, is sharing 6 awesome tips on how you can update your living room with some modern ideas – read on below!
One of the most oxymoronic feelings I have ever experienced was when I was renovating my home. Decorating can be a frustrating task, having to pick the perfect articles to showcase. There are specific ideas that you can consider for your living room, however, and I’m going to tell you about them. Because decorating a home should only be fun!
So, let’s start with our list:
Have a Fireplace
Do you want to give your living room that traditional, dimly-lit look? Never miss out on having a lovely fireplace ornamented with stones.
If you arrange the sofas around the fireplace and place a couple of comfy chairs right in front of it, the setup will look fantastic and very homely.
A Nice Coffee Table
A beautiful coffee table is the essence of a living room. It’s useful, handy and it brings a certain ambiance to the living room.
I have a dark mahogany coffee table sitting between on the sofas, and it gives the room a majestic look. And it serves a purpose as well, so it keeps my minimalistic taste satisfied.
I adore monochromatic décor, and that has been my taste for ages, but occasionally I like to put some bold colors and prints and mix up different textures to get a unique look.
If you’ve chosen to throw in some colored pieces, balance it out with neutral walls and crisp white curtains. This looks stunning.
Keep the Splurge in Check
Did you know that there’s a way of going about splurging like you can buy a comfy and beautiful leather chair and pair it up with a slightly inexpensive table?
Invest in brightly colored and patterned wallpaper but put it on the main wall only. Make your cushions look expensive by making the covers’ front with brocade, silk or velvet but the back made of cheap fabrics.
Personalize the Space
What good is décor if you do not personalize the space by adding a masterpiece made by you?
You can buy canvas and some paints. Paint some geometric patterns on it, merely splash the paint. You have to invoke your creative side for this project. Place it on a shelf with some low-key decoration pieces, and you’re good to go. I have this adorable ruffle rug in my living room that I made with old sweaters, and it looks super cute. Just get creative.
A Utility Table
You should consider keeping an adjustable standing desk in your living room that is out of the reach of children and has all the things you might need such as a Wi-Fi router and an insects spray etc. These tables are mainly handy because their height can be adjusted according to your needs.
There are a million ideas out there, just follow the necessary steps and recreate your little heaven!
