Need to redo this space, help!
October 28, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need to redo my living room, which is shown in the picture. I am open to buying new couches, or using what I currently have. Right now its too dull and boring. I want to keep it simple and classy but more lively than it is right now. Suggestions?

You need color, try a colorful rug Carmel Decor - Traditional Rugs and some decorative throw pillows Carmel Decor - Pillow Talk.
Draperies and artwork are also an opportunity to add warmth, color, and interest to the room. Hope this helps.

Hi there :) i think that your bare wall needs some love. :) Why not try using that to put your TV on, make it a focal point, and re-arrange your couches to face the TV. the couch that is right infront of the stairs makes it feel unwelcoming and closed off. Maybe get a new couch or 2, and one comfy chair as a seperate just to not let everything feel all the same. Maybe get 2 white double couches in a white, or an off-white colour, so you can use nice throw pillows. Get a nice side table for a lamp next to the couches, get a lamp with a nice big silver base, and big lamp shade. Preferably big round. The small side tables are too small for your big couches, they just fade away. Get nice throw pillows for the couches, whith nice design or patterns, in nice colours, not too hectic, otherwise you could get sic of it :) Get a 2 of each, and a couple differenct just to give it some edge. Get a few nice ornaments for above the fire place. If you are really up for an art project, why not try plaster that fireplace up and make it smooth, give it a paint, and then put a couple of photos/frames up above the fireplace above the ornaments. A new rug could cost quite a bit, so the white couches will really light up the room. or you can paint the room, fill in that space above the fireplace to make it a flat wall to put your tv on, and use the other bare wall to put photos on.....Hope you come right
