Set the color palette in the decorated living room
Before going out buying a rug, sofa and decorative objects, define which color palette you will use in your living room. This step is important to ensure harmony and balance in the composition of the environment.
Choose a color or tone to be the base of the decor and apply it to the larger areas of the room, such as the walls and floor. In order not to make a mistake, give preference to light and neutral colors, such as white or off-white tones.
Then define the color that will contrast with that base color. You can opt for another slightly stronger neutral tone, such as gray, blue or black. This color combination is also widely used in modern style decorations.
But you can also opt for a brighter tone, like yellow or red, for example. This second palette color should be inserted into the larger objects, but not all of them. For example, if you opt for a red sofa, choose another color for the rug and curtain.
After the base color and the contrast color, choose two or three more colors for smaller objects, such as cushions, ottomans, vases and pictures. These colors can be from the same palette as the contrasting color or a complementary hue. One tip is to use, for example, a blue sofa with red pillows, as red is the complementary color of blue.
Check the size of the decorated living room and the arrangement of the furniture
The size of the room is very important to ensure the best decoration, as there are more recommended colors and objects for each size of room.
For small rooms, the ideal is to bet on light base colors and objects like mirrors to visually enlarge the space. Larger rooms need to be careful not to get too “cold” and not welcoming.
It is also important to pay attention to the size of the furniture in relation to the space and ensure an area free of movement. TV panels are the most recommended for small environments as they do not take up space on the floor. And if you opt for a retractable sofa, make sure that its size when opened will not interfere with the passageway.
Another tip is to first decorate the room with the main elements, which are usually the sofa, the TV and the rack or panel, and then add other elements, such as armchairs, side tables or coffee tables. In this way, you can have the exact dimension of the space that “is left” and do not overload the environment.
What can’t be missing in the decorated living room
For the living room to be comfortable, functional and beautiful, some items are also essential. The first and main one is the curtain, especially if the room receives a lot of sunlight. Excessive light can bother and interfere with napping, reading and that moment of watching a movie or series on TV.
A good rug is also a must. It will ensure that the room becomes more welcoming and cozy for those informal chats, where everyone sits on the floor, or even during the winter to keep the room warmer.
Pillows are also on the list of what cannot be missing. They help to accommodate both on the sofa and on the floor, not to mention that they still complement the decor with a lot of style.
Also include mirrors, potted plants and paintings on the list to give that personal touch to the environment and fill it with personality.
