Family rooms are generally more informal than living rooms. They tend to be a bit further from the front door, even in the basement at times, set away from the first-impressions façade potential of the house. This means that you can more easily incorporate a casual décor style into the family room. Often, this concept is manifest via comfy stuffed sofas with plenty of pillow options.
There are many ways in which to add color and texture to a living room. One option is to pick a simple sofa and to decorative with various accent pillows. Another strategy is to opt for a patterned rug which incorporates various eye-catching colors in its design. Either way, the rest of the décor should remain simple, just like in the case of this eclectic room.
Wallpapered walls are a suitable design strategy whenever desiring to add a touch of color or pattern to a room. It’s usually used on a single accent wall but there are also cases when it can take over the décor. The pattern featured on the walls can also be integrated in other elements, such as the sofa upholstery. When the goal is to make a room feel warm, cozy and comfortable, too much natural light can have the opposite effect, although we agree this would be a desirable scenario. Limited natural light and strategically directed artificial lighting can have a profound impact on a décor.
An accent wall is a fantastic and easy update that you can do yourself. However, you want to be careful how you do it – too much pattern or color can be distracting. Choose one wall to be the focal point of your room. Add a paint color or wallpaper to create your accent wall. In this living room we used a deep burgundy red paint color to energize the room without overwhelming it.
