A country style living room design often include traditional features like large brick-built hearths, broad timber beams and carpets, although undecorated wooden floors work really well in a country style living room. Large dining tables and accessories like candles can also be great additions.
Where you position furniture will also depend on your choice of focal point. If a large window looking out onto the garden is the main focal point, the seating should be placed to take in the view, thus creating a comfortable space to relax in.
If you have the space, and particularly in through living rooms, arrange furniture to create purposeful zones. Sure, have a sofa that is just for TV worshippers, but also create a defined reading space by putting an armchair next to a window or table lamp; assign a dedicated work space to a corner with a console table, desk or home office hidden in a cupboard; or separate a children's play space from the rest of the room with open shelving.
As a general rule of thumb, pastels and pale colours are better suited to a small living room, whereas bolder and brighter colours can be used much more freely in a larger space. The other pivotal factor is determining how much sunlight enters the space. Think about testing a colour on a small, discreet area and see how it changes throughout the day.
