Redecorating long dark rectangular living room
ksm1976April 11, 2014
I have a long rectangular living room which I feel is quite dark and I'm just about to embark on a full makeover. I want my new room to look elegant, light and airy but homely. Thinking of going for kind of an antique white and cream/mushroom colour scheme walls, wall paper & new cream couches. I Intend to bring in some warmth and get rid of all the straight lines eg old fire, frameless mirror & glass table nest so oak tv unit, small oak bookcase and oak side table plus oak fire surround and a dummy fire place with logs with that wall papered in a flock type white/off white wallpaper. What's folks so far, am I making any obvious errors? Also any thoughts on my current couch positioning as I'd keep it the same but should I move the 3 seater off the wall and should I add a coffee table in the middle of the couches & new fire place? Any advice around layout and how to make it look more homely would be great! Thanks!
