The living room is often the center of the home. It is where you spend time together as a family, where you entertain guests and often it’s where you welcome people into your home. Having a warm, inviting atmosphere leads to a feeling of “home”.
Tip #1.) In order to have a living room style that is always on trend you need to start with neutral basics. Choose a rug first. The rug sets the mood for the entire room and can warm it up or cool it down depending on the colors and pattern you choose. Once you’ve chosen a rug then you can build from there.
You can even find a custom rug at Kalaty.com. Choose the perfect size and color for the space you are decorating.
I’d love to redecorate my living room and in order to get started I have to gather my thoughts. That translated into this mood board! I started with a neutral rug and neutral furniture. Then I built from there.
Tip #2.) Pick neutral colors for furniture and rugs and add pops of color with pillows, window hangings and decor. This makes it easy and less expensive to change the look of the room without having to redecorate the entire room. You can easily change the tone of the room by adding different accessories.
Tip #3.) Choose quality brands for items that you will have for a long time like furniture and rugs.
Kalaty offers a great variety of hand braided rugs made by a family run company. They stand behind their quality and deliver rugs that will stand the test of time. They offer a variety of rugs from traditional to modern. You are sure to find one to match your decor.
Tip #4.) Match your decor to your needs. If you have 4 small children and a dog then I don’t suggest a white couch. Be realistic about your needs and your living room will stand the test of time.
Tip #5.) Don’t be afraid to step outside your box. A bright, colorful framed mirror might not be your first pick but it can make your space really pop. Try new things and experiment with decor that can easily be swapped out when you tire of it.
