Living Room Decorating

Post by hqhyleslie »

Living room decorating [Advertising link removed] is always a hot topic in house fix up. And there are a lot of people ask for good ideas for their living room design, they even pay much on decorating consulting. In fact, if we have some color collocation knowledge, we can make a perfect living room decorating.

The living room decorating should follow the “User Prefer” principle. Because people’s tastes vary from one to another, there is no best solution but most suitable one. That is to say, every arrangement should be approved by the user.

Generally speaking, there are mainly four decorating themes:

1. Vivid theme. The main color is yellow and orange. We suggest using orange carpet, yellowish-white curtain, and wall painted white. The sofa and ceiling should be in light gray color, with some green plants to embellish.

2. Romantic theme. The main color is soft pink. Sofa, cushion, and curtain all in soft pink and it is good to have light blue shadow on it to create a different romantic feeling.

3. Classic elegance theme. The main color is rose and light purple. Using rose carpet and sofa, sofa color should be denser. The curtain can be light purple with light shadow character. Living room wall painted grayish-white.

4. Fresh theme. The main color is light green and sky blue. This is a very simple living room decorating : wall and ceiling painted sky blue, using white living room furniture, most importantly, you need a light green curtain.

More suggestions:

1. There should be no more than three different kinds of color in your living room, not including white and black.

2. Without expert’s advice, follow the “light wall, medium floor and deep furniture” color arrangement role.

3. The furniture do great influence to the living room decorating, you should choose the right designing furniture.

He said... 'We have colour collection knowledge'........ I was hoping to find out who 'we' were.

I am about to decorate my hall and I could have done with some tips.

Great post on decorating living room. I am planning to decorate my living room in the coming months. I am deciding on what colors to paint the walls. Some one suggested to use dark colors like bright red, or bright yellow. I am thinking of some pleasant colors that will blend into my living space.

My whole flat is painted white with just a few added impact colours....black, dark blue.

I have lime green towels in the bathroom....really cheery on a dull day and goes with the white really well.

Not curtains?

I quite like curtains. They're easily cleaned, for one thing. Every time I ever tried to clean blinds I cut my fingers.
