Wherever possible set furniture against the walls to open up as much floor space as you can. Remove any clutter, and steer clear of knick-knacks and other small accessories that make a room look congested and cluttered. To add color to the walls without taking away any visual space, use no more than one large accent per wall, preferably something brightly colored that will help light up the room. Leave windows bare if you can but if not use light-weight fabrics or sheers. Cozy up a Large Room Perhaps you have the opposite problem - your living room is way too big! This often makes a room appear a bit cold, making it feel as though it is lacking in personality. To make this room look more intimate and appealing, use rich, dark colors such as burgundy, navy and green. Browns, gold tones and autumn colors will work as well. While you dont have to paint every wall a dark color, consider painting two opposing walls a rich shade as a contrast to the other walls. If you have a high beamed or cathedral ceiling, consider painting it a darker tone as well. This will visually bring the ceiling down.
You may find that the rug provides a base of an entire decorating scheme, or perhaps you already have a decorating theme that you love and a colored rug will finish off the room. In the room I remembered with the bright red rug, they built the decorations around the red rug. Patriotic decor hung on the walls and red pillows sat on darker couches. They even found a coordinating oversized red chair that they bought to go along with the rug. The brightly colored rug freed them to make other bold choices in a room that was not structurally special but because of the decorating theme became visually spectacular.When you decide to add to a living room, or decorate from scratch, try utilizing a boldly colored area rug and see what possibilities open up for you. You may be surprised at the way your entire space changes because of the decision to decorate with a boldly colored rug.

While it is true that using the paint white for your ceiling gives a fresh feeling, same thing also will do by using a lighter paint for your ceiling than the color of the wall. In effect, the room will look spacious. If you want the warmth feeling of closeness, one can use darker colors for the ceiling. People often make mistakes when it comes to color. One mistake is fear. One effective way to overcome this is to start choosing shades that are of your interest. Then start test painting, if it is to bold, ask your local paint store to lighten it or if it too light, make it darker. Another mistake is walls have too much color.
