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.
Hang ancestral portraits and paintings in the wall with wooden frames. Also install a crystal chandelier overhead your living room. Use free standing lamps with decorative shades and brass stands. For added look, hang Victorian-style plates or silver wares, place candle sconces and mirrors with elaborate gold or wood carved frames. You can even add a grandfather's clock for a more classic look.
A formal living room gives relaxation to a business-busy person. Chandeliers add elegance to one's living room along with a lamp or two. Furnitures in a living room makes a difference. The use of contrast of colors in the choice of furnitures is a good idea too. Minimalistically designed living rooms also becomes a cool choice for those who are into it. Modernity doesn't have to always look colorful.
