And the good news, Living Room decorating can be as easy and/or low-cost as you want it to be. It’s pretty simple to refresh your living room. However, no matter the size of your space we all need to pay attention to the same 3 things … the “bones” of your room, furnishings & accessories.
Your Living Room decorating plan in 3 easy pieces.
Chances are that you don’t need a complete reno.
So, think about these 3 things: the “bones”, furnishings & accessories that are currently in your space.
Be honest, do any of those areas need a bit of help?
For our main example, the living room below is from HGTV Fixer Upper with Chip & Joanna Gaines.
First, notice the beautiful wood flooring. Are you thinking maybe this year we’ll tackle that job?
Furthermore, the addition of shiplap on the walls adds an architectural detail to the space.
Second & Third, the furnishings & accessories are updated and fresh with a black & white decorating design direction.
Right now you may be on project overload, but take it one step at a time. Because we’ve broken down your Living Room decorating plan into 3 easy pieces!
Bones = floor, walls, floor plan
Well, maybe your room already has wood flooring and the furnishings are in good shape.
Then maybe you just need to think about updating your paint color.
My Tip ~ When selecting a paint color, make sure to take your lighting into consideration as part of the “bones”of your space.
Well, the walls are freshly painted, flooring & area rug are updated but you’ve put off the big purchase of a sofa. No worries, there are a lot of good options available.
So everything looks good, you just installed wood flooring but you need to bring your area rug up to date, easy!
And last but not least, draperies finish off your space adding texture, color & warmth.
So visit our shopping site for custom curtains in over 30 fabrics and hundreds of colors to choose from.
My Simple Real Life Truth ~ Honestly in all my years of decorating & designing for clients I can count on one hand the times I started from a blank slate. So you’re not alone, we all have things in our room that we like and want to work with!
So, thanks for stopping in ~ Nancy
