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.
No one could doubt the influence of Queen Victoria during her reign for it even changed the homes of the people in her era. People who belonged to the middle class decorated their homes with grandeur pride showing their status in the society. This brought people to redesign their homes with revisions of Gothic, rococo and Oriental styles. You can see eclectic mixture of style, heavily upholstered furniture, excessive ornamentation, realistic portrays of flowers, birds and animals, wooden carvings, with silver, brass and golden accents.
If you have plants in your home, don't place it just anywhere. You would not want your living room to look like a jungle. You can have a plant stand that has a design that suits your style. You can also use decorative pots. When placing it in your living room, make sure that it would not look distracting. Organize your plants well to avoid a crowded look. The living rooms you have seen above had great ways of keeping all their belongings by having smart storage spaces.
