Modern living room decor often dictates the feeling and function of the space. The parts of color, texture, material and arrangement all play important roles in both how space is to be used and how one will feel in the environment. By drawing inspiration from objects that already exist or replicate styles seen in other places or in newspapers, an impressive, mixed living room design can be easy to create.

Find inspiration from an object already in the living room that holds special importance. Using the color scheme of the object, you can design other parts of the living room. For example, an inspirational post may be a blue throw with yellow and green highlights. The less prominent colors of the object (yellow and green) can borrow ideas for the color of larger objects in the room. For example, the color of the walls, furniture upholstery, carpet choices and window drapes can be taken directly from these shades. The dominant color in the cast (blue) can act as a contrast bursting the entire room on objects such as pillows, wall hangings, vases and lamp shades.
By choosing a design style for a living room, you can set the tone for the look and feel of the room before choosing its components. Some popular styles are French country, rustic cottage, a taste of Tuscany, and romantic comfort. Each distinct style relates to a special color scheme and style of decor. For example, a French country living room often uses a soft palette of white as the primary color used. Soft grays, blues and creams also play an important role. Furnishings have been inspired by ancient elements that may have previously been used as other furniture elements at another time. For example, an old agency can turn into a rabbit cage or an old bed booth can become a coffee table.

Magazine images often serve as excellent resource guides to room design. Choosing those that are based on furniture, colors and accessories in the image will create a room that blends well together. Objects can be difficult (and often expensive) to match perfectly; But by following the size, structure and feel of the objects in the image, you can create a similar look while designing the original.
Living rooms with prominent architectural features often make the room easier to design. Using the focal point as the basis for inspiration, you can use colors and textures of the object in other elements of the room. For example, a large marble fireplace should dictate that white is a prominent design color. The cold, icy feel of marble can either be supported by the use of other similarly difficult elements such as leather sofas or glass tables, or it can be compared with soft elements such as overfilled sofas and plush rugs.
