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.
You may have fun collecting and displaying family photos and you had it framed. It is okay to have photo frames but it might cause some clutter in the living room when not placed well. Choose photos that you want to place in a frame. The rest should go to your photo album and scrapbooks. Place your photo albums and scrap books in one location. You can also use a digital photo frame for your pictures.
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.
