For your living room, choose warm and neutral colors. Give it a unique texture by using faux. Choose colors that will look best as an accent. You can use bright colors for your living room. Just make sure that the colors won't mismatch. It is better to have an open space for your living room. You can arrange your furniture in a central island if you have enough space. In the corner, you can place a tall plant or a sculpture. A more open space can allow better traffic. It could look better and lighter, too.
Most often, a living room has a focal point like a fireplace or a television set. You can arrange your furniture around your focal point. As you do this, allow some open space for easy access when one walks into the living room. If you have a large area, you can have more than one set of sofas or conversation area to do away with an empty look. You can also use larger furniture for your space.
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.
