So when you have washed and rinsed all the paint work down and stripped any old paper off the walls you will be ready to begin the decorating. You will have spent hours at the local DIY store collecting color charts to make sure that the colors you choose are right for the room and you almost certainly will have a number of empty tester pots that you have used to paint one foot square samples of color dotted about the walls. You will want to ensure the finished look when the paint is dry is to your satisfaction so the tester pots are a good idea. The lighting in a room will vary the shade on the walls and often the biggest challenge is selecting a scheme that compliments the natural light the room has to offer. Creating a board known as a mood board is a great way to actually see how the colors look together and visualise the finished room. It allows you to really see which colors clash or complement each other and avoids expensive mistakes. When you are selecting accessories to compliment the scheme make sure you have your mood board at hand, a miniature handbag sized version is a good idea for shopping trips.
Synchronizing Colors and Themes The first thing to do after you have decided which decorating style theme you will use for your living room in your new home or while renovating your existing home, you have to decide which color scheme you will use. You have to keep in mind to color coordinate with the color theme of your furniture, upholstery, furnishing accessories, floor covering, carpets, etc. Another option is to begin with the furniture and coordinating paint colors with it. You may try to start with the major piece of furniture in the room or the rooms central point. Either use balancing colors or make the focal point stand out with something light around it.

You can maintain their glare by simply dusting them. You can add odd things if you want to follow unconventional living room color ideas. You can add a whimsical lamp shade or a colorful sculpture. Many colorful lamp shades are found at a cheap price in a lamp shop. You can add a ribbon around at the top and the bottom so that it becomes more colorful.

The living room can serve a number of purpose and this depends whether you want it as a social gathering place for guests and friends, a family spot where everyone can huddle while watching movies or a place where you work and play on your computer and more. Based from its function, you can decide what kind of design is suitable. Whether you want it to have a traditional style or a modern professional look. In this process you will be playing with your creativity while choosing the best home accents and wall decor to complement your decorating idea. Below are some pointers on how to improve your living room the way a professional interior designer does it. Choosing The Right Color It is important to take everyones opinion when choosing the living room color. Soft restful colors such as beige, grey and taupe, soft blue and green are excellent choices since every family member uses the area as a place to relax and unwind. However, if your living room is used primarily for recreation and other lively family activities like playing games or watching movies, try to pick colors that brighten the room. Red and yellow, blue or emerald are decent choices to convey fun and excitement. Placing modern wall art, toys, heirlooms and framed decor are also good ideas to beautify the area.
Replace the prints with solid colors in lush fabric textures. Velvets, chiffons and silks are excellent fabrics to start with. Incorporate them into throw pillows, throw blankets and upholstered furniture for a rich and authentic look. Any rough or harsh fabrics from the Midwest theme should be discarded or re-purposed for something else in the house, as they no longer apply to the Moroccan themed room. Bringing Morocco into a Midwest living room can be a sure challenge. However, by taking time to use the fabrics, colors and accessories that you already own, you can save yourself quite a bit of time and energy. It will also save you money as you reuse the items that have multiple purposes. Turn your living room into a new and spectacular showcase of Moroccan life by making it as authentic as possible. With the right fabrics, accessories and coloring, your room will soon transform into a space that bears little resemblance to its once Midwest theme decor.
