Try a dark wall color for bold living room update. Dark walls create an intimate and inviting feeling in a room. They are great for living rooms, libraries, dining rooms and bedrooms. When you use a dark color on the walls, keep the floor and ceiling finishes lighter. The deep blue wall color in this living room highlights the coffee table, making it the focus of the room. Use this technique to show off a special table or beautiful display of objects.
Frame your fireplace with a set of built-in shelves. This is a great way to create a feature wall in a living room. Feature walls look best when they are symmetrical, so make your shelving units equal in size. In the living room design above, we used open shelves. You can also add doors to cover the lower portion for closed storage. Add a pair of sconces and a mirror or painting above the fireplace to complete the look.
Depending on the square footage of living space in your home, you may or may not have the luxury of a separate family room. The family room plays a different role in the home than the living room (although some homes effectively and seamlessly combine the two, due to space constraints). Where the living room tends to be more formal and geared toward entertaining and visits, the family room in general has more of a lounge feel.
Each living room has its own layout and the interior design has to be adapted to it. In most cases the coffee table sits at the center of the room. Sometimes the living room offers the perfect opportunity for creating a cozy reading corner. A comfortable armchair and a floor lamp can totally transform an empty corner.
