Simple Living Room Decoration. Living room is probably the most important area in any house. Earlier, it was used as a formal place for special occasions and to entertain important guests. However, in the present times, the living room has become a more functional and active area of the house, which is used for multiple purposes. As such, the decoration of the room assumes great significance. Also, the living room actually speaks volumes about the ambience of the entire house, so imparting it the right look is very importnat. Read on to find some fabulous ideas for simple living room decoration.
Go for simple designed lamps and shades. Tiffany styles and faceted crystals are a no no. Lamp bases made of plain ceramic or wrought iron and contemporary, spare brass designs work well with the minimalist style. Use recessed fixtures, like cans, for ambient lighting. Ornate chandeliers and fussy shades over faux-candle lights do not enlist the minimalist designs. Let the windows be simple or leave them bare for maximum natural lighting. Various options for the windows could be tab-top curtains on a simple wrought-iron pod, plantation shutters, 2-inch-wide wood blinds and Roman shades. Remove all unwanted clutter from your living room. Abundant pictures on the walls and tabletop tchotchkes should all be removed. They just do not form a part of the minimalism. Instead of small clusters of pictures, a single large picture on each wall would be better. Floral chintz, shelves packed with knick-knacks, and ornate wrought iron just have to be removed from the living room.
Spare the floor coverings and wall treatments. A simple area rug on a hard-surface floor would just be perfect. Paint the walls in one color. Choose a soothing neutral color to get a minimalist look.
Cushions & Slip Covers. Cushions, in bright and matching colors, can be added to your lounge. It will not cost you a lot and at the same time, will give a new, changed look to your chairs. Covers will also help conceal any scratches on your chairs that have appeared over time. The mood of the room can be changed by adding slip covers, once you are done with the cushions. Modern mix and match colors in different textures would look beautiful.
