Decorating ideas for living rooms are not easy to find. As your living room is one of the most important rooms in the house. While they are all important in one way or another, the living room is the room that you tend to spend a lot of time in. You may spend time in this room entertaining friends, chilling out with your family, or recuperating by reading a good book and enjoying a hot drink by yourself. This means your living room needs to be designed accordingly!

Not only should a living room be practical, it should look and feel great to the people that spend the most time in it. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ design guide, so you need to make sure you pick a design idea that suits you best. One person may absolutely love spending time in a neutral and minimal living room, while another may want plenty of colour and pattern adorning every surface. Something that suits you may not suit your neighbour! This is why we’ve come up with 15 awesome interior design ideas. Take a look and see which one calls to you!

Pretty Patterns in the Living Room

Some people just love pattern in their living room. The key to getting this right is to stick to around 3 patterns, using different amounts of each and different pattern sizes to make the look work perfectly. For example, you could have one pattern on your walls, one on your curtains, and one on your cushions.

Minimalist Interior Design Themes

Minimal is a fairly new trend sweeping many homes. Living the minimalist lifestyle usually leads to less stress, so if you create this look in your living room, you can expect a peaceful and tranquil vibe. Make sure you choose simple colors and shapes and avoid visually cluttering the place.

Monochrome Interiors

Monochrome is pretty self explanatory. It has been around for a while but still extremely popular. You could even modernise it a little by incorporating geometric patterns and a slight pop of colour.

Textured Luxury Modern Living Rooms

The luxurious and textured look in a living room is great if you want to feel like you’re relaxing in total luxury. For this sort of look, it’s a good idea to stick to a fairly neutral or muted color palette. Shades of white, grey, duck egg blue and even pink can work well. You need to make sure you incorporate texture everywhere possible too. Your guests should want to feel like touching the room all over when they walk in!

And after all, you're my Wonderwall

If you want your living room to make a statement, you can easily do this by creating your very own feature wall. For this, you need to make sure you select the right wall (it should be large and not have anything distracting, like a door or a window). You can then use things like paint, wallpaper, and even natural materials to make a statement.
