Easy projects and rich colors give this living room a warm and inviting look.
Before, this living room was awash in neutrals, but full of furnishings with good shapes. Warm colors, new carpeting, natural accents, and a fresh furniture arrangement will make this the ideal spot to spend a crisp fall day.
Warm hues give this living room a rich autumnal look. A palette of cocoa, rust, and gold evokes the spirit of the season. Accents such as plush pillows, wool throws, and an upholstered side chair give the room a cozy feel without a lot of effort. Covering the fireplace wall in a rusty red is a quick and easy way to add drama to the room. Switching out sheers for woven Roman shades and burlap curtains is another way this living room transitions into fall.
Finding artwork large enough to make an impact on this empty wall would cost a fortune. Instead, two curtain panels and large red stripes painted to fit the width of a sheer curtain panel create bold artwork on a budget. A pile of assorted solid-color pillows in various textures makes the sectional more inviting.
A wooden lamp base adds a natural element to the room. Transform a lamp in seconds by adding self-adhesive ribbon from a crafts store to the shade. Place a patterned place mat under the lamp to add a quick dose of color to a side table.
Once a breakfast nook, this space was transformed into a work space perfect for homework or bill playing. When space is limited, as in this tiny nook, use a long, narrow sofa table in place of a bulky desk. Burlap adds texture to the room through window treatments and bench upholstery. A bulletin board above the table is a quick way to store papers in this makeshift home office. Orange carpet squares add spots of color to the decor and tie it to the living room.
Bulletin boards are practical but not very pretty. Add style to the space by adding a small gray decal over the cork and displaying the board in a chunky black frame. Group the bulletin board with smaller shadows box frames to create a wall display. The black frames pop against the golden walls.
