Renovating or even just changing up the colour scheme of your living room can be daunting because you’re never sure of what shades you won’t get bored of in a few months time or whether they will tie in well with the space. Today’s article will hopefully help you come to a decision because were going to give you 10 trendy themes that’ll jazz up your living room.
If you’re wanting a warmer-toned but edgy theme for your living room then rustic is the way to go. You can introduce Western elements into your decor pieces, such as faux animal skulls or faux bull skin rugs and some greenery such as plants to tie in with the rustic vibes. Wooden textures and leathers are your main focus for a rustic living room.
Everybody wants an extra cosy living room and the best way to instantly bring comfort into your front room is by carefully choosing your colour palette. You need to make sure the overall warming tones are very neutral like oatmeals and oak effect woods and to tie in with those add lots of different textures; such as angora fluff and suede.
We all know how much of a hit a grey based home theme has been for the past couple of years and it is still trending now. Although, rather than sticking to the plain grey and white mix it up with mustard shades or even blush pink; depending on if your partner will allow it of course.
A Scandinavian style living room is a combination of shapes, metals and industrial-esc elements. Although this is a rather modern trend for the main room of the house; it can be made very homely by the use of pillows and cushions.
We’re not talking your grandmas lovely but very old fashioned living room; we’re talking adding a modern twist on the trend that once was the in-thing. Keeping in with the patterns is great but rather than having multiple patterned items laying about that clash a lot, having one or two items as your main statement pieces and tying the rest of your decor in with them will keep it low-key vintage.
This is definitely a more girly and pretty trend for your living room but one that really opens up the space due to the colours being light. You don’t have to stick to the usual creams and baby pinks; instead, try a powder blue or pastel yellow with magnolia shades to keep it elegant and fresh.
When you think of a country themed living room you think sheep paintings and a stall the shape of a saddle but that’s not exactly what we’re going for. Alternatively, stag heads, check print and rustic wood is what makes a country themed living room extra snug.
Probably not the best descriptive word for this trend but we all want to be a little boujee; whether that’s in our style or homeware. The best way to make your living room a little extra is by adding metals such as gold or copper and indulgent shades of burgundy and magenta in your walls or sofa that all link together fabulously.
This trend is very Indian-esc; it involves a lot of prints, colours and plant-life. For instance, the Paisley print would be very bohemian, especially when it involves very vibrant colours and the greenery ties in with the care-free, green thumb-linked trend. Lighting plays an important part here as you want to create a very zen, relaxing room.
This trend is the plushest of the plush; velvets, satins and jewels are what makes a lux living room. In order to create this style you’ll need to use deep shades such as indigo, emeralds and violets because this is what’ll make the room luxurious and snazzy.
