How to choose art for your living room

Your living room is the place where you would prefer to unwind and relax after a long stress filled day at work. It is also the place where you entertain all the guests visiting you. The ambience in the living room should be fresh and calm creating a serene and welcoming atmosphere. Hence, while choosing the art to decorate your living room makes sure to pick the perfect art pieces, which are neither too loud nor too soft. The living room should never be over decorated with too many paintings and artwork covering the walls.
