A living room should feel just as its name suggests “lived in.” It should be tidy, but cozy and welcoming.

Here are some Living Room Decorating Ideas that totally make the cut!


Myquillyn of Nesting Place sure knows how to decorate a gorgeous living room! She has adorned her wall behind the sofa with a series of lovely family photos and wall art making it very attractive. The white sofa adds an airy and calming look to the room while the soft feather filled throw pillows invite you to settle in with a great book. I personally adore the blue washed table top, lamp and charming end table she selected. Keeping your living room decor simple with everything having its own place makes your home both functional and beautiful.

Krista with The Happy Housie shows off her gorgeous living room. This is one of the most creative living room decorating ideas that I have stumbled upon. Nothing speaks cottage style splashed with a romantic feel like adding lots of white or neutral tones and finishing them up with pops of color. Notice how she creates a focal point of wall art behind her comfy sofa? The yellows, greens and light floral colors all are perfectly warm for a nice summer tone. Most of her art is either thrift store finds or handmade which makes this cute living room very budget friendly and doable!


I am a sucker for orange. I don’t know why, I just love it. It is common to see this amazing color during the months of fall, but don’t pass up the chance to make it a part of your decor all year round. Jenny with House of Hue shares with us a living room decorating idea that deserves a second glance. The end tables and throw pillows are simple do-it-yourself finds. She keeps things minimal to avoid making her living room look busy or cluttered. When you want your room to stand out, add punches of bold colors throughout and you will be amazed at the look.


Kate with Centsational Girl shows us how touches of coral can make a living room feel and look warm and friendly. Light colored furniture and lots of white make even smaller living rooms feel larger. Allowing plenty of light to enter into the room either naturally through windows or by artificial means will really dress your room to impress.

If you are looking for quick and easy living room decorating ideas, try redecorating with throw pillows. Simply changing up the accent pillows in your room can really make a world of difference in how your decor looks. You can change them out for the seasons as well as for the holidays. Mix them up with different sizes to add some variations in your decor.
