5 Tips on Redecorating Your Living Room Space

Have a living room you want to decorate? Here are 5 handy tips for you from us!

  1. First and most important:
    Enjoy the experience! It may seem daunting at times but we advise you to let yourself get excited about the prospect of decorating (or redecorating).
  2. Remember the purpose the room will serve:
    Living rooms can serve as a place of entertainment and for conversation with guests, so think of the kind of mood you want the room to convey. Also, ask yourself questions like how much and how often you entertain as well as the kind of events you would like to host there.
  3. What ‘feel’ do you want the room to have:
    If you have a certain kind of feeling you want the room to have, such as a rich, opulent look, then start with an exotic rug for instance that could not only bring a unique look but also be a source of conversation at parties and gatherings.
  4. Use your inspiration: 
    Build the rest of the décor around your inspiration piece, for example if you have a cherished rug, or painting you love — use that as the focal point and select complementing textures, colors and furniture for the rest of the room.
  5. Select the right colors:
    If you prefer monochromes, then select muted furniture pieces, but enhance them with accent colors in a brighter tone and use a variety of textures to add interest.

If you like, you can always add a burst of color through a specific piece, like this colorful ‘Hand Knotted Ikat Rug’ offered by Alyshaan Fine Rugs.


The abstract design not only incorporates bright pops of color, it also allows the decorator to choose any color to use for accent cushions. Notice the muted silver/grey tones of the sofa fabric, which balances the overall look.
