The living room is considered as the gathering area for family and friends. It is the place where you entertain guests and do different activities with the family. Some living rooms are intended for reading, relaxing, for entertainment, for conversations and others. It becomes a comfort zone for most members of the family aside from their own living rooms. Hence, it is very important for a living room to be comfortable and organized. No one would like to stay in an area with so much clutter. A living room free from clutter can also help minimize stress especially if you just came from a busy work.
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.
Dark and bright shades with rich colors are used to get a Victorian look. Woodwork should be of dark tones also so that it can go along the other shades in the room. The use of red, burgundy, violet, yellow and blue is very common in a Victorian room. But white can still be used as long as you use Victorian furniture.
