Fall is upon us, and with the changing season sometimes comes a desire to change things up inside the home, too. If you’re looking for ways to reinvent your living room, here are a few great ideas.
Add Some Greenery
You’d be surprised by what a single plant and decorative planter can do to make your living room look and feel more luxurious. Some easy-to-grow plants include the snake plant, yucca plant, pothos, aloe, and Christmas Cactus.
Head to your local home goods store to find a beautifully painted pot (or two!) and watch how it becomes the centerpiece for the entire room.
Hang Some Art
A nice piece of artwork hung on the wall can make a huge statement. If you can’t afford actual canvas art, go online and order prints of your favorite pieces and frame them. Choose colors from the artwork to decorate the rest of the room with throw pillows, rugs, etc.
Throw pillows make great accent pieces, but they need a refresher from time to time to keep them current and trendy. You can go online and purchase new throw pillow covers that will update the look of your living room with little effort or expense. Today’s hot patterns include geometrics, cactus print, animal print, and banana leaf.
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
Many of us underestimate what a fresh coat of paint can do for a room. If your living room is small or dark, give it a bright lift by painting the walls a light shade like off-white or cream. If you’re in the market for new furniture, choose pieces in shades to match. Think earthy hues that mimic those you see in nature.
Buy a New Rug
An area rug is an important décor element in the living room as it adds warmth, interest, and brings the room’s décor together. Many people make the mistake of purchasing an area rug that’s too small for the space, which can make the room seem smaller. Ideally, you want a rug that’s large enough for all the furniture to sit on while leaving 10-20 inches of floor space between the rug and the walls.
