Ideas and Styles
 
Living room decorating styles can turn the same four walls into completely different worlds. Colors and textures play a major role in creating different living room decor, as well as the juxtaposition of fabrics with decorative pieces. Take a peak at these different living room decorating styles and inspire your imagination.

Modern Eclectic Living Room Decorating

At times, simply combining living room pieces that wouldn't normally go together can cast magic over the room. A stuffy leather sofa complimented with a whimsical, wrought-iron coffee table, and an Alice-in-Wonderland clock come together to form a charming living room decor style like no other. Add geometric shapes in the carpet and the soft illumination of candles, and this beautiful living room decor is ready to charm.
 
 
Whimsical Living Room Decorating


Lively colors and patterns can combine to create a whimsical living room. Airy and bright, this living room decor invites you to laugh, relax and feel like a child a again. The striped yellow wallpaper serves as a delightful backdrop for the bright blue sofa. The traditional rug adds a sense of proper decorum to this playful living room atmosphere, while the roman column defies its ancient purpose by supporting a whimsical plant.

Set your imagination free and implement these charming living room decorating ideas in your own home. If you don't like wallpaper, paint the striped pattern on your walls. Just use your paint roller in straight lines, and add even more fun by creating an internal picture frame inside the pattern. Just draw the stripes horizontally to create a square against the wall. Then hang a picture inside this square, which will highlight its beauty.

Whimsical living room decorating is all about bright colors and fanciful touches, like silk butterflies, wind chimes, water fountains, or anything that gladdens your heart.
 

 
Elegant Living Room Decorating

Traditional living room decor can be just as charming and soothing as the most whimsical living room decorating styles. Simply add beauty with exceptional silk or velvet pillows, elegant upholstery or slipcovers, and low floor lamps scattered intimately throughout the living room. Seek to create an atmosphere that invites you to relax and forget your troubles. Use an even-toned rug, without patterns . Compliment it with earth toned walls and wooden window treatments.

In an elegant living room the decor is clean, devoid of clutter and distractions. Choose one or two items of whatever it is you wish to display. Quality instead of quantity is the rule for elegant living room decor.

I hope these living room decorating ideas awaken new ideas in you that will translate to beautiful living room decor in your home.
