It can actually be extremely beneficial to vary texture even when using natural woods and more traditional styles in your interior decor. Many can worry about matching too many natural materials and patterns making a space look old-fashioned and uncoordinated.
Whilst maintaining themes throughout your space make sure that you do not add too many and also that there are not too many dominant pieces in any given space. By their very nature the quality of a natural wood finish can be very alluring and eye-catching so avoid using tons of this material everywhere.
When coming with design ideas for your living room you just have to consider the brightness. A living room should be bright and have all the happy and bright colors visible. A bright room will not only attract members of the family but it will also provide a memorable experience for whoever pays you a visit. A bright room will set the tone and mood for anything taking place and you can also spice that up by adding some bright colored flowers curtains and furniture that will suit it. In your design ideas try as much to do away with dark and dull colors.
