Real Simple has a wonderful online article of 40 Decorating Tips for Your Living Room. We decided to feature some of these great tips and show how we have used these in some of our own projects here at Deb Reinhart Interior Design Group. Check out the entire Real Simple article for more ideas.
Tip #13: Use a rug to draw the eye in the direction of furniture you want to highlight, like a gorgeous tufted sofa.
Tip #19: Perk up a bare wall with lightweight two-dimensional tiles.
Tip #20: Use plush pieces―an oversized couch, an ottoman―to give a stately look to a space.
Tip #26: Create a cozy conversation area by grouping seating around a large window, taking advantage of light and views.
