Thinking about finding decorating ideas for living rooms can be pretty scary. All of a sudden, you find yourself in front of an ocean of possibilities, furniture, colours, and you feel lost, hopeless. If you want to avoid feeling this way, forget about what you see for a moment and concentrate of what you want and on who you are.
In other words, stop trying to figure out what to do with the furniture that you already own and start asking yourself: “where do I want to live? What kind of emotions do I want to meet every time I step into this room? And why do I need this room, how am I going to use it?”. You don’t have to find an answer for all this questions right away. Actually, trying to answer them all is way less helpful than letting them linger for a while. As always, in fact, asking the right questions are more important than finding the right answers.
Look carefully at the pictures in this page, for instance, and you’ll start understanding some of the directions you might want to take. Let your imagination run, don’t worry about boundaries or obstacles, because if you really manage to follow your feelings and your creativity, everything else will be just a series of practical considerations.
Remember, you are trying to figure out what kind of “living” room you want… LIVING. This is will be the room that defines the shape of the best part of the social encounters that will happen in your house. This room should “live”, it should feel easy to decode, not because your turned it into an ode to minimalism, but because it should have a clear purpose and a well defined style: your style!
Forget about rules and templates. Get inspired by our examples, of course, but in the end remember that what will happen in your house should really be the results of your own choices, a mirror of your personality and taste. You will be the one who will LIVE in your living room.
