Smaller living room spaces can do well with a lot of color. Wall racks, big windows, cozy seating, and small tables can give the illusion of a bigger space and make the environment look interesting. Wall decors can be a good opportunity in this case to make a splash of life and space

A lot of ductwork and warm exposed bricks is complimented by original wooden ceilings and a soothing color palette. The hint of vibrancy is well subdued by the rustic charm, making the space an interesting option.

While too much of red is never acceptable for a living room, a hint of the color here and there can keep things vibrant and interesting. Be it a red showpiece on the coffee table or a painting on the wall with red streaks, there is a good opportunity to liven up the space without trying/doing too much.

If you have the opportunity of a huge space for living room, a mid-century theme can be an exciting décor scheme. The main elements in this theme include a spread out sofa, chairs, and glass tables – all arranged along the edges. This sticks to the essence of space and gives you a lot of breathing space and free floor – perfect for homes with kids and pets.
Contemporary living is about achieving a balanced mix of the earthly and modern elements. Wooden counter-tops can be well complimented by metal pieces and similarly, white can be well contrasted with earthly colors like green, brown and burgundy. Look out for unique light fixtures and other installations that evoke a personality.
Grey is cool as long as you can effectively balance it with the right installations. Metallic lights, contemporary furniture design, mirrors, wall decors and even the curtains can play a significant role in making your grey living room theme stand out.
Monotone can be interesting if you have the right amount of space to flaunt it. For homes with a big living room, a grey theme can rightly project your taste for elegance and sophistication. The use of mirrors, black bordered furnishing, white/grey covers and dark floorboard is a killer combination with this theme.
Transitional designs can be understood as a move between the rustic (traditional) and the modern. An earthly fireplace and a designer coffee table by it is the perfect contrast that several modern homeowners are looking for. Similarly, white walls with minimal décor can be well accentuated with bright curtains and vibrant furnishing.
