125 Living Room Design Ideas: Focusing On Styles And Interior Décor Details

Traditional living rooms.

Traditional living rooms usually feature a color palette based on neutral tones such as creams, beige and brown. Also, their interior decors tend to be symmetrical. The furniture usually has delicate curves and elegant forms and the whole décor is balanced and harmonious. The attention to details is another element that distinguishes traditional living rooms from some of the other styles.
