Living Room With Subdued Colors Design by Jennifer Duneier.

Living Room

Dos:

  • Use beautiful, yet comfortable and safe furniture.
  • Arrange the furniture so the room is inviting and easily accessible.
  • Put the TV and other electrical equipment into a cabinet to be hidden from view when not in use.
  • Hang objects at the same height and create strong visual horizontal lines, especially when ceilings are extremely high.
  • Marry objects and face furniture together so they're in relationship to one another.


Don'ts:

  • Use uncomfortable furniture and seating.
  • Have too many decorative objects, unless they are organized together as a group.
  • Place too many pillows on the couch.
  • Use the TV as the focal point of the room or seating arrangement.
  • Have beams in the ceiling or sit directly beneath them for long periods of time.
