Once you've chosen your main room colour, pick out one main accent and another one or two accent shades to use in smaller doses. This gives you the opportunity to add warmth to a neutral scheme, cool down a bright scheme, link together two ends of a long or open-plan space, and perhaps even to tie your living room colours with those of your hallway for whole-house cohesion.
Your living room floor suffers a lot of use and abuse, so choosing the best is key. A carpet may look lovely to begin with, but light colours should be avoided in favour of darker shades, contemporary patterns or a low-pile, stain resistant carpet. Either way, it's worth knowing how to clean carpet before you have yours laid. Natural flooring, such as sisal, is another option, but these can be tricky to maintain, so opt for a rug in these materials over hard floor.
A classic living room is spacious and has abundant light. Generally, classic designs have generous seating, bright colours and decorations, but will avoid any loss of balance or poise in the arrangement. Flowers are a fine addition to any classical living room, adding warmth and lightness to the arrangement.
Before settling on a wall colour, you should consider whether you want to give the entire living room a new coat of paint or accentuate sections of it through a feature wall. The size of the room should play a crucial role in the decision making process.
