Living Room Makeover Tips

See how this living room gets a sophisticated new look from smart furniture picks and fresh layers of color and accessories, and learn how you can do it yourself.

While this room had charming details and classic, functional furniture, the space lacked a layer of personality.
A roll-arm sofa in basic white, go-anywhere side chairs, and a large coffee table are proven to last and can stand up to a variety of uses. The coffee table is large enough to serve each seat in the living room, making it the perfect entertaining piece.

Living Room Personality

Color and personal treasures make a room. With the right furniture in the room, it was time to add pieces that convey a warm and welcoming vibe. Relocating the side chairs created a more intimate conversation area. The chairs' subtle texture and trendy nailhead trim helps them stand out among the room's various accessories. A light green wall color adds pizzazz to the once-bland white walls.

A new console table placed under the living room window can pull double duty as a display space by day and a makeshift buffet or bar by night. Upholstered cubes tucked neatly below the console can be pushed up next to the coffee table for additional party seating. Covered with machine-washable, bleachable white fabric to match the sofa, the cubes look crisp and clean but are easy to live with.

An oversize woven tray stocked with pretty accents transforms the coffee table into an eye-catching focal point. Accents and accessories like these add pattern, texture, and color to the otherwise basic living room scheme.

A mix of patterned pillows stands out against the crisp white sofa. The patterns work together because they feature the same mustard, cream, and chocolate color scheme, but each has a different scale. Banish matchy-matchy pillows to create a style statement that's totally unique.
