The living room is the beating heart of any home. A lifeless living space can make the home feel drab. If your area feels underwhelming, consider using these tips to inject a bit of vibrancy and life.

The living room is the center of the home. Whether you plan to use it for movie nights with your family or entertaining friends, the space needs to be dynamic, comfortable, and boast plenty of seating. The design aesthetic should coordinate with the rest of your home’s interior.

For a cozy, relaxing living room, choose cool colors. Muted purples, deep blues, and earthy sage greens create a calming space. These shades make it easy to have plenty of color in the room without it feeling too bold.

Add Some Texture

Patterned and textured pieces work wonders to prevent a room from feeling flat. Add wallpaper for an elegant, patterned detail. Plush rugs and cozy throws add texture and comfort. With art, throw pillows, and other décor items, you can tastefully mix patterns within the room to create an engaging space with plenty of visual interest.

Create a Focal Point

The focal point of a room draws the viewer’s eye. This is commonly the TV or fireplace in living rooms, though it could also be an unusual piece of furniture or a stunning piece of artwork.

To make the room feel cohesive and uniform, ensure there is only one focal point. If you’d like to avoid the television feeling like the center of the space, choose a wall-mounted option in a frame. When the TV is not in use, display your favorite paintings on the screen!
