Since the living room is your home's so-called “receiving area”, the impression it gives to your guests and even your satisfaction of how it looks would matter a lot. There are those designs in trend and there are still those designs that we want fulfilled in our dream house. With so many things to consider, it is helpful to check out designs to finally get into what's best for a living room. One of those elite choices could be Contemporary-Themed Living Rooms.
Shapes are important for whatever you will place in your living room. Usually, rectangles are used for sofas, windows, rugs, and others. But you can still balance that by using other shapes for some items like round throw pillows, free form sculpture, oval coffee table and others. Having a huge window will allow natural light to enter the living room. It is an advantage for you can have enough light during the day. Use blinds or curtains so that you can cover the window during the night.
Use elaborate window treatments like swags, valances and tiebacks. Use fabrics that are silk, brocade and damask. Trim these with tassels, cords, braid and crystals to add more embellishments. You can also have a stained glass window if you are willing to spend money for it. To get that Victorian look, use decorative mouldings, ornaments, plasterwork and arches for your walls. Arches can create a grand look while plasters and mouldings give that look of authenticity. These things may cost a lot but would certainly give you the look you want. But if you want to save money, you can opt for walls with deep rich colors like red. You may also apply unique wallpapers with metallic or ornate prints.
