There’s no better way to figure out how to design your living room than experimenting with a variety of different layouts. Maybe you’re not so into symmetry or maybe you want more space in the middle rather than around your furniture. However tiny the space may be, let yourself go wild because sometimes the most unexpected design can turn out to be just the right one.
Decorating a room starts with choosing your color scheme. Everything you choose for your room after, from furniture, to art, décor pieces and window treatments, are typically all based off of your color choices. For a mid-century living room, keep in mind that the colors were typically a scheme of neutral tones that were accented with darker hues of many different colors; green, yellow, red, purple, dark brown, red, orange, and more.
There are many different ways in which you can create a centerpiece focal point. Most people create their centerpiece on a main table in the room; a coffee table or sofa table. Depending on the design and area of your room, you can arrange your furniture so that you can have a centerpiece that is visible from all points of the room.
Lighting is a key factor in any room but even more important in a small room. The key to lighting is to layer it in the room, from floor to ceiling. The use of multiple types of lighting helps darken all areas of a room, which can close in a space and make it feel small. Multi-layering lighting entails the use of the natural light you have in your room paired with floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lights, sconces on the walls and even artwork lights. All types of lighting work together to brighten dark corners and light up spaces that feel closed in by darkness. Evening time is one of the most obvious times of day where a room can lose its sense of size and can be rectified with a generous amount of artificial lighting.
