The red rug was stunning and simple, but brought energy to an otherwise nondescript room. Utilizing color on your living room floor will change the way your living room feels. Oftentimes we use bright colors as accent pieces, throw pillows, or even splashes of art on the walls. Occasionally we get up the nerve to paint a wall or even an entire room a bold brilliant color. But just as often we neglect to see the floor as a viable option to hold bright color. Bright colors bring energy and life to a room. Using a bright colored area rug will vitalize a living room and give a look to the space that people will remember.

Brown and Blue living room curtains for are very stylish right now. You will want to stick with a light blue or a robins egg blue to pull off this theme. Eyelet curtains with both colors are an astounding combination. Just use narrower curtain panels so all four will fit nicely on one curtain rod. You could also opt to use a double curtain rod, and put the blue behind the brown, so when the brown is opened the light will shine through on the lighter color for a wonderful decor effect. Color schemes are a learned trait, and will take some practice for most amateur designers to pull them together on the fly.
