Warm and Inviting: The Ulitmate Living Room Decor

  • Written by NewsCo

We always want it to be inviting and relaxing--to feel at home. When designing our house the living room is often high on the list, and, expectedly, we are preoccupied with getting it right. We pontificate about colors, arrangement, furniture, and its accompanying accessories. It is unsurprising because the living room often creates the first impression for the visitor to our houses.

The right decor in the living room is very significant because it makes the difference between a comfortable, cozy, and pleasant home and a living space with just a potpourri collection of

furniture, items, fabrics, and colors.

Planing and groundwork

As with everything that turns out well, the work begins with planning. The planning stage includes settling the kind of look you want for your room. It is always a good idea to take inspiration from similar styles. The knowledge you pull from this will help you make decisions on furniture and colors and even arrangement.

Perhaps the most relevant part of planning and groundwork is getting the correct measurement. It informs the cohesion of all pieces that will go into the house--from rug to furniture to wall arts.

Planing and groundwork are an essential part of home decor as it serves as guidance in helping you make a good decision.


Furniture arrangement is a common challenge in setting up a living. Usually, the default for most furniture arrangements is to put a couple of chairs opposite each other and push the sofa against the wall. Very little is considered in terms of the planning, functionality, and cohesion of the overall look of the room.

Other things to consider include the height of the sofa and chairs which should be the same.

Wall Arts

Wall arts are essential for a complete and sophisticated living room. Blank and empty walls are unexciting, but wall arts create an attractive and cohesive appeal. It is also an expression of individual personality and style.

In addition, it is essential to have control over natural and artificial light. The effective way to achieve is this is through blackout roller shade or Roman shade with blackout lining.
