And we can’t forget the TV that often serves as the hearth of the home in the digital age. But what sets one living room apart from another? It’s all about the personality and the pieces you gather in the space.

However, you want to be careful how you do it – too much pattern or color can be distracting. For bold patterns, consider adding it to just one wall to energize your room without overwhelming it. In this room, we used a blue damask pattern and a matching dark wall color to tie it all together.

An L-shaped sofa in the living room next to a robust wooden coffee table entices guests and family to enjoy each other’s company.

It can’t just be a space for entertainment, it also needs to be a space for entertaining. When choosing electronics, furniture, decor and lighting for your dream living room, picture the space full of people. Will it comfortably accommodate the groups you plan to host? Sectional furniture that can be moved around can help you carve out a better entertaining area. Hideaway TVs can make the space feel more intimate and dimmable lights can create ambiance.
