How to plan and decorate your living room

A good starting point is to think about how many people you need to fit in your living room on a regular basis. This will help you to choose the right living room furniture.

What should I put in my living room?

A large family will need a sizeable sofa and a couple of armchairs at least to make sure everyone has somewhere comfortable to sit.

If space is tight, beanbags and poufs are a smart way to sneak in extra seating, and can be stowed away easily at times when there are fewer people in the house.

If you like to entertain in your living room, it’s a good idea to have a few lightweight side chairs that can be moved into more sociable arrangements when people come to visit. Small side tables or nesting tables are another handy addition, giving

Living Room Trends & Ideas for 2020

Eclectic & Boho Looks

Many are abandoning single-style spaces for a storied, layered boho look that borrows a bit from every style — and not just in the living room. The only rule is there are no rules, which makes this one of our favorite interior design trends.  An eclectic home look is best created with pieces you love. Start with key anchor pieces (sofas and accent chairs) and add in tables, if you need them, and an area rug to anchor your living space.

Southwest-Inspired Style

Take cues from desert life with warm terracotta hues against blues and greens. Tribal-inspired patterns on decorative pillows and rugs are big for this look, and always remember to integrate natural, handmade-inspired elements. This southwest living room trend is going to be a forever favorite, as it combines laid-back California style with a hint of boho and mid-century modern elements.

Exterior Design Trends and Ideas

With the coming of 2011, we’re not only seeing the beginning of a new year, but a new decade as well. Many things have changed over the course of the last ten years — politically, economically, and culturally. We spoke with architects and designers nationwide to see what design trends and ideas are here to stay and what recent events have shaped the exteriors of residential building.

An incredibly important point was brought up by Philadelphia-based architect Jeff Krieger of Krieger + Associates Architects Inc: “This is my philosophical take on things. I’ve always said the study of architectural history is a way of evaluating cultural beliefs and values. You can look at a building and understand that it is a reflection of society’s values and there really is a shift going on over the last two generations from the post-war [period].” He discussed the small, affordable, modest homes of

Home design trends come and go, but some turn into classics that shape the way we think about style and decor for years to come. When you’re decorating your home, a good rule of thumb is to go a little more traditional with major furnishings and to incorporate the new trends you respond to with textiles and other small items that you can easily swap out later. That way, you always feel like your space is evolving, but the more expensive anchor pieces and semi-permanent fixtures remain constant.

So how do you make sure that the design choices you make today are ones you won’t regret in five or 10 years? Well, a good place to start is with some designer recommendations. These decor experts don’t exactly have crystal balls, but they have

Modern Exterior Design Trends – Home Design Trends

Modern exterior design is characterized by the use of very detailed geometric elements. This gives a home’s exterior a very distinctive form and many architecture designs are influenced by modern art. The idea is to maximize the available space for functionality. Modern design has a more practical element than many of the other design choices for homes, whether interior or exterior. Modern homes will focus on simplicity and incorporate fewer of the more upscale elements that are commonly used on home exteriors.

Modern Exterior Design and Function

The concept behind the modern exterior design is usefulness and function. This is considered in every step of the process of determining a home’s exterior design. Every part of the home, inside and out, is to be useable and have a purpose; nothing not even space is wasted. For the exterior of the home, this means the use of various hardscapes to

Victorian Decorating, Home Decor, Design Trends


 

The examination of the interior design of Victorian houses begins first with the style of residence. The situation of a 19th century residence could be reduced to three classes — that of a town or city, suburban, and a country house; each of which had its own style of interior design. A residence in town was best for occupants who enjoyed public and private parties, theatres, concerts, balls, public libraries, and museums.

 

 

A suburban residence, or one in the vicinity of a city or town, offered some advantages that could not be obtained by living in town. Because property was not as valuable as in town, many more conveniences could be acquired, such as a garden, and perhaps a field or two, attached to the house; and this additional space could be built upon in the future. Those who settled entirely in the country, at a distance from the city,
