What are some young and fun living room decorating ideas?
Congratulations on your new home! It’s great that you waited until you lived in the space a while before deciding to redecorate. It’s always difficult to decide how you feel about a space until you know how it works for you. We love chocolate brown paint, but with brown furniture it’s just not going to work. The good news is that it is much cheaper to paint the walls than it is to buy new furniture. We suggest you think of your room as an outfit, and decide on your new color scheme from there. If your pants were the color of your sofa, your jewelry is the finish of your lamps/accessories, what color sweater would you choose (that can be your wall color). Add a scarf—that’s your rug. Thinking of color this way is much less intimidating and much easier to picture. Happy Decorating!
