Decorating Tips for Your Living Room

The Multipurpose Room

We spend so much time in our rooms, we should be able to enjoy them in every way. Especially our multipurpose room (also known as the living room).

You can enjoy a fun game night with friends or relax after a tiring day at work. You might want to take a quick nap before dinner or just watch the next episode of your favourite show.

Here are some quick decorating tips for this all-purpose room.

1.Creative Decor Items

If you want to jazz your place up a bit, you can decorate it with some abstract ornaments, mirrors with interesting frames, or go even wilder and add a game table.

To make it cosier, add a bookcase or two (if your place is spacious); that way, you’ll be able to enjoy the view of your favourite books while taking a short break from everyday life.

2.Break the Traditional Layouts

In 2024, the traditional living room layout is out the door.

Abruptness is what’s going to be in vogue. Be brave, be bold, experiment with different and fun accessories, play with oversized furniture, and add some lamps (even if

they are just for decoration).

Pedestals are becoming a thing, so explore that as well. If you consider yourself a maximalist, go for the unconventional trend and pick marble furniture (preferably in blue shades) for your living room.

3.Adopt Boldness

The keyword for 2024’s living rooms is bold!

If you don’t want to go as far as choosing stone furniture, bet on blocks of primary colours. The already mentioned blue, some red, and yellow are becoming the hottest of trends.

Choose them for the larger pieces of furniture.

4.Daring Accent Chairs

Another daring thing to look out for is accent chairs.

Designs with a lot of details, extravagant colour and textile pairings, additional layers of everything is what’s needed to make your room pop. Spreading the accent colour around the room will help with creating a homey look.

5.Softening Brutalist Decor

If you’re worried about your room becoming a brutalist decor piece, don’t worry, just make room for some curves.

Add arches, pick a sofa with a curved back, some round pillows, and accessories and your worries will disappear.

6.Curtained Storage Trend

The next trend we will present to you is something that has been trending before – curtained storage.

It’s very important o have it, especially if your living room is also your office. Being able just to pull a curtain and transform the hectic work environment with the cosy feeling of your living room is fantastic.

You can even have some fun with the storage curtain and choose a playful pattern for it.


7.Playing with Colours

Some designers like to use three main colours for a room: one for the walls and the ceiling, one for the larger furniture and one for the accents and decorations.

If you are confused and don’t know how to choose your colours, here are some tips: choose softer tones for the walls, it will make the room look bigger.

For the accents, you can pick brighter colours and even use a patterned wallpaper on the windows’ frames or paint the door of your living room in the same hue. To enhance the cosy vibe at home, don’t shy away from using brightly painted woodwork.

8.Ceilings as the 5th Wall

As we mentioned, painted ceilings are becoming a thing. Some design experts refer to the ceiling as the 5th wall.

If you match its colour with the one on the walls, your room will look like it has a higher ceiling, so this is a convenient trick for small spaces.

9.Add Some Calm and Serene Vibes

If you prefer to keep a quiet and calm energy in your living room and don’t want to be on the bold trend, 2024’s indoor designs in fashion are here for you.

Warm, light blue, peach pink and soft neutrals (mushroom, ecru, etc.) are still in vogue. These colours bring the calm vibe and sophisticated look with them. Your place will look more serene and will let you enjoy your peace.

Make sure to keep it uncluttered to maximise the tranquillity. These tones look great when combined with olive green, cream and earthy hues. Some wooden elements will be a great addition to your cocoon living room.

10.Nature Theme in Vogue

The nature theme will be trending like fire for every room of your home in the next year.

Marble and rattan are growing in popularity. When it comes to colours, bet on blue and green hues. You can easily mix and match the nature theme with the neutral colours and calm vibes mentioned above.

11.Retro Wall Panelling

The 60’s are back!

Or at least when it comes to wall panelling.

Just pick a colour and have fun. You can also use wallpaper and create a panelling illusion.

Whichever you choose they both will transform your place into a cosier one and will give you the warmth of the past.

Choose and decorate to your liking first, and oblige to trends second. Prioritise your taste, wants and needs, and remember to have fun while doing it.
