Amazing Living Room Design Ideas For 2014

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Updating your home, especially your living space, can seem something of an arduous task. We want our homes to reflect seasonal changes, so that we have a cosy, yet fresh, space to relax in. Redecorating your living space can be difficult, and with so much interior design choice on the market, it is difficult to know where to start. If you are looking for fabulous interior design inspiration for summer 2014, you need not look any further. This guide will have you reaching for the paint brush:


The key to keeping any living space fresh is to ensure that you adopt a neutral colour palette within your room. Ditch the boring magnolia and cream tones, and daub your walls with stone, beige and grey tones for a funky feel for 2014. Keeping the paintwork neutral will ensure that you can update your room, cheaply, with accessories. It is important to paint once a year to ensure that your living space remains fresh and clean looking. Bold feature walls are perfect for large living rooms, but do avoid floral wallpaper; this trend is now coming to an end and is starting to look dated.


Summer sees the welcome return of pastel tones and candy colours. If you are looking at updating your living space for the summer months, then adopting sugary lemon, pretty pinks and luscious lilac tones will look perfect. Do be aware, that come winter, your room will look too bright for the dark months.

You should seek to accessorise with colours that are suitable all year round. Adopt mustard yellows, navy blues, deep reds and vivid purples to ensure that your home looks amazing between seasons.

If you favour the minimalist look, then simply update the colour scheme within your living space with cushions, blankets and throws. Adorn your mantelpiece with quirky lanterns, candles and abstract shaped photo frames. Go wild with accessories and pick up kitsch, quirky, one of a kind items to ensure that your space looks divine. You don’t want your living space to look like a department store showroom. You want to implement your own fabulous style, to ensure that your home is a true reflection of your own personal taste.  

The key to making sure that your living space looks coordinated is to ensure that the colours of your chosen accessories match. While the shapes and styles of your chosen accessories may be different, it is imperative that you keep all items of a similar colour to ensure that your room looks striking, not mismatched.


Choosing fabrics for your living room is very important. While a huge, fluffy rug may look amazing, you need to be practical in your approach to interior design. Choose durable fabrics for any textiles that will adorn your floor space. For cushions, blankets and throws, you can go wild with sumptuous fabrics. Crushed velvets and rich brocades look stunning on a plain sofa. Your curtains should also be made from quality fabrics to ensure that they can withstand daily use. Well chosen fabrics can soften harsh spaces, so it is important that you choose wisely.
