At Sherwood Studios, our world revolves around furniture and interior design. We love everything about taking a blank slate (or even just a new space) and transforming it into the perfect space for its owners.
And while we’d love to personally help everyone, we know that’s not feasible. That’s why we’re going to share some of our favorite tips for decorating one of our favorite rooms: the living room.
With each person’s living room being unique to their own personal style and preferences, we’re going to keep our tips easy to implement and applicable to various tastes and styles.
- Choose the largest furniture first
When decorating your living room, pick out the largest furniture first. This will usually be a couch or loveseat depending on the size of the room.
- Accent neutrals with a bold color, print or pattern
If you prefer neutral colors, accent them with a bold color, print or pattern. You can do this with a pillow, picture or any other accessory.
- For small areas, use a mirror to open up the space
One great trick for opening up a space and making it brighter is to add a mirror to the wall. This gives the illusion of a bigger space, making your living room more inviting despite the size.
- Add more dimension with a patterned rug
Patterned rugs are a great way to add some personality to a living room. They’ll give your space dimension and spunk!
- Add a pop of color to your walls
To make a real impact in your living room, put some color on your walls. Whether you choose a bright pop of color or use a darker shade, you’ll have endless decorating options with colored walls.
- Choose one statement piece for the room
A great statement piece can change the whole look of a room. Whether it’s a piece for your wall or a unique piece of furniture, choose a statement piece that says something about who you are and what you’re all about.
