  • These are really amazing living room decoration and design ideas. These are simple and easy way to change the whole look of living room. Thanks for sharing this.

  • Every idea has its own beauty and uniqueness. They all look great, specially the decals and classic white. These designs will always be on trend.

  • I love your article…..Accurately said. I understand what you’re pronouncing, and I assume I accomplish cohesiveness with shades in my home. (I even have light beige walls and stick with blues, yellows and green touches (mostly with plants). My hassle is that I have way too many exceptional styles! I have many Eastern/Asian accents (and a couple of small black lacquer shelves) in my formal living room. My kitchen has touches of French united states of America with a set of black tole art trays and blue Roseville Pottery, and my circle of relatives room is going into rustic items with iron accents! OMG, it’s a large number. However, I love a lot of these patterns and things that go along with them…..I love the whole thing from worn barn siding tables to jade Buddhas. Many of the oriental matters were given to me as my husband’s family is from Hawaii. I DO KNOW that I’m very drawn to an impartial color pallet with plenty of different textures and I want to move in that direction as my pockets permits. Where do you propose I start? Do I put off the formal oriental decor? How do I integrate my beautiful blue and white temple jars with baskets and chippy flower pots? Please help!!! I’ll appreciate any words of expertise!
