How would you decorate?


Hi all, Just bought a house and my brain is in a pretzel. I cannot figure out how to decorate this living room. I want it to look really nice and have it so no wires are visible and also have my 65" look like it belongs there

I would tear down that Fireplace, and cover that wall completely with a
Split Face Travertine Mosaic Tile in any Color you like.
Tile it around the Fireplace, run some Cables for your TV under the Tiles.

I would have add my 52" smart TV on the right side of the fireplace wall. And definitely will add some sofas near the fire place. So that in the freezing weather, I can sit down and enjoy the warm.

What colors do you like to live with? Sometimes a nice painting that appeals to you can give you ideas for color. Walk around in a good furniture store that has decorating, to see what you like. Some have rooms & rooms with different styles.

For a living room,don't forget to put some curtains on the windows( just in case of sunshine come into house in Summer). And I think simple design style will match up with the color of your floor.

Start with a central designing device, such as a large artwork for the wall next to the fireplace. Just choose something that you really love. It will be striking as people enter the room. Then plan for the colors of the rest of the room to be designed around that piece. Modern furnishings for a large abstract. Old timey for a vintage photo art. Cozy for a botanical art. You could stick with the neutral tones for the large items and choose colorful accent pillows, vases, etc. Or go the opposite and paint one wall in a bright accent color that augments the large artwork colors.

Go to the store and buy a graph paper pad, draw your room space to scale on it, at one square = 6 inches or so. On another piece, cut out your tv and sofas and whatever, and play around with where to put them and visualize how people would walk into it.

With a sliding deck door you can't use blinds, so you have to do curtains. Colors you have now and the wood look nice.

Hi,
well according to me a good lighting scheme is a fantastic way to add drama and visual impact to an ordinary space. Also, while buying lighting it is important keep in mind the size of your room.

Re: How would you decorate?


I would always do 3 walls in a light colour and 1 vivid wall maybe with a wallpaper?
I have just recently decorated my house and found that curtains and furnishings really help to transform a rooms look. I got all of my curtains from Julian Charles and also got quite a few matching cushions.

I would also add a rug that's bright as it looks like a big room

Hope that helps

Re: How would you decorate?


Hi!

Personally, I would add a wall unit with lots of cubbies and shelves. It looks really nice if you add photos of family or old mementos! Here's an example:
