A living room speaks volumes about a home. The first sight of it tells it all, in it resides the personality of the home owner.  It is indeed imperative for the living room to be sophisticated and a touch of amazing interior design and an ultra-cozy feel that takes one’s breath away while it’s still maintaining the comfy feel. 

With designing, it’s the simple things that matter. A mere placement of a vase on a shelf gives a home a million dollar view. Though it can be an added advantage, the look and feel of your living room is never all about the money.

According to Anajette Cyangwino; an Assistant Operations Manager at Nina Interiors, people are different and therefore everyone prefers a particular theme or even a specific way of designing their living room.

“It all depends on the items; it may be curtains or sofas that you are relying on to determine the colour of the others,” she says

She explains that a person may be having their theme colour of preference which can be shared with an interior designer to help coordinate and make a colour contrast.

The colour of the living room can even be totally different from that of the bedroom as it helps to break the boring monotony of having to see the same colour all over the house.

Make the interior designing of your living room like that made by an expert by minding the simple areas below;

The paint colour of the living room

Colour themes determine the flow of the whole designing, white tends to bring out the classy look and an immaculate look. One can always select the colour of their choice but at least it should have a lively element in it.

Mind about the furniture

This occupies the largest space of the room therefore it should be chosen with care. Mix colours, you can get a couch which is floral and other chairs in a plain colour. The couch in most cases is the largest piece of furniture in the living room therefore positioning it in the right place makes a huge difference and paves an easier way at positioning other items. The quality of the furniture also adds to this.

Furniture

When one builds a house, some people prefer matching the doors to the furniture. Furniture needs to match; there is no way you can have a white coffee table then a different console table they look more organized in the same colour.

Accessories

It adds to the beauty of the house but in some way they also have to coordinate the things you already have.
