Autumn is here, and with it means cooler weather and a fresh new season. With the holidays right around the corner, why don't we do a little bit of early window shopping for some presents for your HOME? Specifically, how about your living room? In this week's blog post, I will be sharing some fascinating living room ideas I have come across. 

Opt for warmer lighting and earthy tones 

Warm light feels very natural to us and promotes a feeling of relaxation, especially in the evening. And if you compliment warm lights with warm decor, such as brown or orange throw pillow, you can create a truly serene space. 

Coffee Tables are Cool!

Convenient pieces of furniture such as coffee tables and stands can simultaneously compliment the look and feel of a space, and can be handy places to keep all sorts of things, like books and that TV-remote you lose all too often. Photo by Erica C.

Upgrade your Chairs!

Depending on how you arrange your living room, a single piece of furniture can take the look and feel of your living space to the next level. Consider chairs and footrests with some character, but that also accent the theme of your living room. Photo by Josiah B.

Get Colorful!

Rooms don't need to have just a moderate amount of color in them. You can create a more vibrant and lively space by incorporating a variety of different contrasting colors. 

Coat Hangers are Classy

Don't neglect those walls! You can put more than just paintings and TV's on them, you know. A simple coat hanger or some interesting home decor items can look fantastic if used tastefully. Plus, coat hangers have the added benefit of keeping your clothes handy! Photo by @halldorabirta on Instagram.

Rugs, Rugs, Rugs

Wooden Floors are Incredible

I have always loved and preferred wooden floors over carpet and other materials. They are easy to clean, and can look phenomenal depending on the type of wood and the accommodating furniture.

Hint At Your Hobbies and Collections

You don't have to keep your extensive guitar collection in your music room, or your wines and spirits in your kitchen and pantry. Showcase them in creative ways in your living room! Nothing gives more character to a room than an item or style that is unique to you.

Get Dark

Black is a color that looks great on its own and can compliment pretty much anything. If you usually opt for brighter and more vibrant color schemes, try exploring some darker variations. You might fall in love with it and never look back!

And There We Have It!
