For a more subtle approach, choose an armchair. Though smaller than a sofa, the armchair will definitely become the focal point of your living room. Whatever you choose (green, pink or yellow), just settle back and get comfortable.
3. Accessorize to make your living room your own
Whether it’s brightly coloured cushions, a colourful throw, a stack of books with crisp covers, an original lamp, a variety of vases and accessories, there’s no shortage of ideas to brighten up your living room. And of course, you can always switch things up with the seasons.
Fall is one of the decorator’s favourite seasons. For ideas to warm the crisp days of fall, check out our article Add a touch of autumn to your decor.
4. Use plants to add life
Beautiful green plants add colour to your living room, not just greenery. Despite what you might think, these plants are not green only.

5. Don’t forget the floor
Sometimes, our living room decorating efforts forget about the floor. To overlook the floor is to lose a golden opportunity to add texture, patterns and different shades to your decor, and make your living room vibrant and comfortable.
