19 Super Simple Home Decorating Ideas For Your Living Room

Who has the time? That’s what I often think when browsing through interior design magazines and blogs.

Sure, I have the time to browse (who doesn’t?), but finding the time to execute the ideas is a whole different story.

That challenge increases with living areas, particularly if you have a big family or are super social, because so many different people and parties are floating in and out.

The key is finding simple home decorating ideas for your living room that will not only look amazing, but suit your budget and lifestyle.

So voila! We’ve put together 19 super ideas of all different shapes and sizes from the largest of furniture items to the smallest of ornaments.

Flourish with furniture

There’s a reason it’s called a living area. It’s meant to be about ‘living’. If your home is big enough to have a formal lounge area to enjoy only on special occasions, go right ahead. But here we’ve focused on flourishes that add comfort and style.

Single seater couches are on trend, with an emphasis on caring for self – a quiet place to read, rest or relax. Or your ‘spot’ (to take inspiration from Big Bang Theory).

Boho or ‘shabby chic’ stylings are an easy way to create a relaxed feel. Need somewhere to rest a cuppa? Accent a lounge with a side table, the fancier the better. Metallics – coppers, golds, silvers – are in vogue.

Adorn with ornaments

When it comes to choosing ornaments, think about the atmosphere you want to convey. If you want something unashamedly feminine, go for chic pastels and vases full of gorgeous flowers. If you want something more neutral then metallic ornaments will add edge to a living space.

If your home is full of little ones there’s no point having a valuable vase within breaking reach. Those luxuries can wait until later in life.

Delightful accents

There’s so much you can do to jazz up a tired old living space without committing to renovations or new pieces of furniture. Small accents like cushions and blankets can have a massive impact.

During Winter months you can bring out the warmer, fluffier pieces then pack them away and replace them with lighter brighter accessories come Spring time.

Wonderful wall Art

The wonderful thing about decorating with wall art is how personalised you can make it. This is the opportunity to be creative and let your own personality shine through. Wall art is what transforms your house into a home. When decorating a living space with wall art, don’t be afraid to be a bit bold and daring.

Rather than print a single canvas print, invest in something a bit extra special like a split image print or wall display. Mirrors that are ornate or funky not only add character, but a sense of space as well.

Investing in wall shelving – DIY or otherwise – is a wonderful way to provide more space for displaying art and ornaments. And if you’re a crafter, the world is your oyster as you can create and hang whatever makes you feel whole and happy.
