Artwork is an integral part of successful living room accents. Of course, wall art can and does take a variety of forms. Consider a simple industrial piece out of thick gauged wire to suggest movement and great taste as one of many modern living room ideas. (This piece has great DIY potential as well!)
As the place in the home that guests will likely spend the most time in, your living room décor is especially important. Basically, the living room is a place where you can show your style to the world. It should reflect your interests but have enough universal appeal that anyone who visits can feel at ease.
Whether your style is modern, classic, country, or anything else, don t let your living room décor get out of hand. Remember, this is the entertaining room, so it s a good idea to avoid extremes, as not every guest will appreciate it. There is a fine line between uncluttered and empty. Walk it carefully! Also, many people equate modern with electronics. While there is a definite connection, they are not one in the same. Having modern style is about being colorful and bold, and creating a good sense of space. It has nothing to do with the number of remote controls on your coffee table. If you need help designing your living room, you can always hire an interior decorator to keep everything balanced
Living room accents are so fun to play around with, largely because the living room tends to be the home’s main gathering, mingling space (perhaps tied in hang-out popularity with the kitchen). A life-sized statue of a beloved or interesting animal, for example, becomes the backbone of the space’s personality. Who wouldn’t want to sit comfortably in chartreuse-and-chrome club chairs and observe the great outdoors with such a statue? (Or should we say, “Whoo”?)
The no-nonsense colors of this unexpected chair are part of its perfect charm. Emphasizing pillows or other soft textiles in your living room accents is a lovely way to bring comfort into the space, both visually and tactilely
Get a massive bang for your decorative buck by adding in an oversized piece on a living room wall. This becomes an automatic focal point and, despite its massive size, actually simplifies the decorating requirements of your space. The light-on-dark motif is particularly striking
