Below is a list of some useful tips to decorate your living room area –

1.Colors are known to have a direct psychological effect on the people and their mood. Choosing only whites and creams will give way to a monotonous look. It is always better to go for lively colors, but if you prefer light colors then get some contrast highlight done on an opposing wall. This will impart a contemporary look. Wallpaper borders also look stunning.

2.Living room area and furniture go hand in hand. If you are buying new furniture then go for small furniture instead of bulky ones. However, if you already have furniture installed, try to rearrange them in a different fashion.  Furniture arranged in off square angle look good. You can place a low chair with a table near the fireplace and create a cozy area.
