Most people start decorating their home with the living room. This is a room where family and friends gather to visit watch seasonal sports games or movies. With that in mind selecting the right furniture for easy care and comfort is very important. The starting point for your furniture selection is choosing the right couch.
A vital element when decorating your living room with a contemporary theme is your wall treatments. For this design style the colors can make or break the look - consider adding shades of browns and black or a sharp black and white look to the room. Try using a neutral color paint on the walls or if you want something different go with a leather or suede wall covering.
Choose a focal point. Choosing a focal point in your living room space is important as you want to accentuate the best features of the room. A window is a great feature in any living room space both for the view it may have and also the light that it lets in. If this is your focal point arrange the furniture near by and make sure both you and your guests can enjoy the view/sunlight. Other focal points in the room include an entertainment unit or a fireplace. These areas in the room should be accentuated as well.
