Nothing in the world creates as good an impression as your living room. While your kitchen and bedroom are the more private spaces in the house, the living room is something that is common and accessible to anyone. This is why you need a great interior design and decoration idea for this room. The more you focus on the beauty of your room, the better the impression you would be able to create on the visitors. We are sure that you have had a tough time in finding the right kind of décor for your living room. It takes a lot of thought. However, we have a very soft and appealing idea that is inspired from the Georgian and cottage style home design ideas that would certainly prove to be a good option for you. Have a look.

As usual, we would start with the walls of the house. These need to be painted with a very soft shade of green. A light shade of leaf green would be a great choice for the room. Green makes you calm down and would be quite helpful in relaxing your nerves and making you feel really great. Think about the color of a cucumber smoothie. This would give you a good idea of what exactly is needed by you. Don’t go for accents as they would not be helping the room stand out in any way and are largely unnecessary.

However, if your room is designed in such a way that accents would become necessary, just go for a darker hue of green and you would be able to manage the look. Now, we think about the windows and door colors. You can go for a pastel shade of blue or dry a deeper shade of the cucumber green color that you have used on the walls. Team them up with beautiful floral curtains. They should, again, be a different hue of green and must have flowers in contrasting colors like red. You can also add one sheer white curtain along with this.

Now, go for bright sofas. They need to be thickly padded and must be as fluffy as possible. However, this fluffiness must only be maintained in the looks. As such, the sofas should be very firm. The color can be carrot red that comes with floral or feminine designs. Make sure that it instantly catches your attention and provides a soothing contrast to the color of the walls. Add an ottoman with a similar look.

You can also add one fluffy but firm stool near the window to get the right amount of seating necessary in the room. To accentuate a Georgian appearance after you have added the cottage feel, simply add one beautiful warm honey brown serpentine chest that comes with antique looks and you would be finding the perfect combination for yourself. Add a couple of lamps on the top that must also be in deeper shades of green and you would be finding the perfect living room you have been looking for.

Home Décor And Color Combinations

Home Décor And Color CombinationsOne of the most important parts of your home décor themes is the color combination that you would be using in the rooms of your house. This is the reason why you must be extremely conscious of the colors that you are using in the house. But why is color that important? It is because color always has some kind of personality and each color depicts a different kind of mood and lends a personality to the room itself. Let’s understand this with the help of a few examples. After you have had a long day at work, where you were overstressed because an important project was going to end or where you had to work overtime, what would you prefer? Would you like to sit in a room that is painted in green or would you prefer a room that is painted in red? Of course, you would chose the first room.

Do you know why this is so? It is because colors play a very important role in our lives. Each and every color represents an emotion or a feeling and it definitely helps us in having an ultimate impact on the people who are being exposed to that color. Therefore, you have to focus on getting the right color for your room. This can be done in three ways. First, you have to focus on the color of the walls. Second, you have to focus on the color of the furniture. Third, you need to focus on the color of the rest of furnishings, decorative items as well as draping. In order to find the right combination for this, you need to focus on keeping the color of the walls lighter. We would always prefer to keep the wooden and furniture shades as natural as possible. Of course, there is no dearth of different kinds of furniture shades around. However, the real beauty of furniture is experienced only with natural wood colors.

Now, it is time for you to go for the paint of the walls as well as the draping and furnishings. You must always remember to choose a lighter shade for the walls and add an exactly contrasting deep color to the rugs that you are using in the house. This helps in creating a diverse personality in the room and it appears quite nice as well. Otherwise, it might look very monotonous and you would not get a chance to handle the things well. The other two things that must be used for your color combinations are curtains and cushions or pillows. Usually, people like to keep brightly colored cushions in their houses that meet with lightly colored curtains. However, you can also go vice versa if the theme of the room allows so. You must always remember to use different hues of the same shade of color for these two items. The best thing for you is to keep a color palette along at all times. This shall help you in recognizing the colors that would suit you well.
