Need help decorating complete living room
September 17, 2013
So we've lived in our house for many years and I am tired of it not looking like a grown up space. We just had our carpets replaced with a laminate and painted the walls a warm beige (Behr wheat bread) Currently our tv stand is from ikea and our couches and coffee table are really old and need replacing. I have a bookshelf which is on the left of the picture. It is in great shape but the finish is pretty beat up and will need to be redone. I would like to paint it but since I have no idea of a color scheme for this space I don't want to do it yet. Our living room is also open to the breakfast room, dining room, and kitchen so I'd like for it all to have a cohesive feel. The breakfast room has a nice mahogany china cabinet which I don't plan to touch as its in good shape. I would like to line the back of the inside of it with a pretty fabric but want something that will work with the living room as well. I need a rug but since I have no idea on color I don't know what to get. So basically I guess where I need to start is colors and feel? I was thinking navy and red? I'm not really sure. I was thinking turquoise and coral for a sec but I want it to be a mature space that I wont tire of so I'm thinking no now.
