We all know the way you keep your home says a lot about you. And if you really think about it, the way your living room is kept has the biggest impact, because more often than not, this is the room most people visit. Thus, a play of colour and furnishing can really help you attain different themes to your living room.

At the outset, there is no such thing as the ‘right’ living room. It’s always subject to your taste. That being said, here’s a list of the most popular living room designs:

Mediterranean: A Mediterranean themed living room design is one that uses a combination of olive green, deep blue, chrome yellow and orange. You could contrast these with cream or beige to really bring out the colours. A living room done up this way would use compact furniture, preferably in light coloured wood. Soft furnishings could be in Mediterranean colours, and overall décor could involve straight lines and angles.

Scandinavian
: A stylish living room design is actually really simple to achieve. The primary colour in such a theme is white; consequently all the furniture is made of white wood or white cane. It comes alive when this white is contrasted with bright primary colours like red, blue and green. These could be added through sofa cushions, curtains and beanbags. This makes for a simple and young, yet classy living room.

Oriental:
A living room done up in this style relies on a lot of dark wood furniture, and bold colours. As a result, wooden or wrought iron furniture is a good idea along with soft furnishings in striking colours like red and green. Even curtains in this sort of a living room are dark and heavy. The overall feel in such a living room is cosy, with a lot of character being brought in through lamps and lighting.
