The tropical dining room is generally filled with color and effervescence and is a far cry from the more traditional and formal dining rooms that seem all too serious. There is a certain understated ‘playfulness‘ here that you simply cannot miss. Of course, the bright and bold patterns and splattering of green add to the richness of the setting as well. So, why not move away from the mundane and give the tropical dining room a shot?

Choose a deep, rich wood or black fireplace to warm up a room and make it feel comfortable and inviting. For a light and airy vibe, pick a white or light color, such as stone or baby blue.

Use them in front of your most attractive decor, such as flowers or rich drapes or windows, to reflect beauty and please the eye. Avoid using a mirrored wall, which can look too retro and alter your aesthetic. Instead, rely on one large framed mirror propped on the floor, or group several smaller mirrors on a wall.

Mostly, choose the curtains which match he color of the furniture. So, do not lose it all in the last minute just because of one silly mistake.

Living room centerpiece ideas can include floral designs, an elaborate design piece like a monogram or a stunning fireplace. Your own furniture can be a great way to create your living room centerpiece. Classic designs usually place sofas or seats along walls, creating empty space in the middle of a room. Instead, you can center your seating furniture to create both a great visual and a cozy conversational area. Don't be afraid of angles, either, when you arrange your furniture. Often, placing facing pieces on the diagonal can change the entire feel of your living room.

This focal point is where your eyes are instantly drawn when you enter the room. Without a focal point, your room can feel like an overwhelming mix of decorating themes, each competing with the next for attention.

Two great living room paint ideas include adding an accent wall and adding texture to your walls. If your living room lacks a focal point, or if you want to further emphasize a focal point, an accent wall can emphasize a particular shade, or you could use a complementary design like stripes or two hues separated by a chair rail. In a small room that a bright tone may overwhelm, you can still incorporate your favorite shade on one wall while the others boast a more neutral color. If your dÃ©cor pieces can best be described as eclectic, an accent wall can pick up on a common hue and make each item pop.
