Living rooms are very important spaces in a house. They are known as the faces of a house because guests usually see the living room first. They need to be well designed and decorated even if the rest of the house is a little messy. Most people worry about their living rooms being clean more than anything else.

Living rooms are normally large sized rooms with ample seating areas and decoration. People usually put up paintings and other curios in the living room for all to see. Since it a place for display, it is kept clean, and for its beautification, a certain amount of good aesthetic sense is needed.

This room is not large, but it has a lot going for it in terms of design. There is use of a lot of vintage furniture and accessories. The vintage look is always current, because it gives off a very unique feel. It is always nice to get vintage furniture and other decorative items from stores like thrift stores, flea markets and vintage shops. You will get good quality stuff, and if you’re on a tight budget, this will work even more.

This room is simple, elegant and charming. It is mature in terms of design and has a very sophisticated and laid back feel to it. The use of browns and creams makes it seem warm and inviting. The wooden floor is well polished and expensive looking. There is an oriental air because of the carpet and furniture.

It is nice to see such ornate furniture (and the mirror above the mantelpiece) juxtaposed with starkly modern paintings. They add a certain edginess to the space that is much needed. Having period pieces for artwork is unnecessary and overdoing it.

It is important to remember that you should keep the space simple and inviting.
