Living rooms that are beautifully designed are by their very nature inviting and warm. Regardless of whether you are using dark woods or light colors, if your living room’s theme is cohesive and organized then your friends and family will have no objection to spending hours having a good time in this room.
Critical design elements to achieving this goal include having a theme. If you prefer the rustic theme, then your furnishings should have the feel of being a bit older even if they’re brand new. Conversely, if you have a more modern theme but get your furnishings from the thrift store, some sandpaper, paint, and elbow grease will make these items look like they’re brand new.
The 20 photos shown below offer great templates for how to keep your living room thematic. You’ll love these photos because they’ll inspire you to create a room beyond your wildest imagination.
