Happy, cheerful colors evoke a fun, kid-friendly atmosphere. In her own home, designer and mom Alison Kandler paired a navy sofa with wicker furniture and a distressed coffee table, but the brightly striped area rug and candy-colored pink and floral pillows help tie all the hues together. The family space serves multiple functions: a place for kids to create art and play, a home office and a spot to relax as a family.
Change out what's underfoot. Area rugs can be a large investment, but with some smart shopping, you can transform the look of your floor with a great deal. A neutral rug with a graphic pattern, like the one designer Allison Lind chose here, will be in style for many years to come.
Narrow your color scheme. Take an inventory of your living room, determine your three favorite shades, then edit. By choosing a simpler palette, the design is more dynamic. After you've edited, see if the room needs a few more accessories to highlight your new scheme. Go shopping, but remember to buy only what you truly love.
If a piece of furniture, like a coffee or end table, has seen better days, transform it with a fresh coat of paint or stain. A high-gloss paint treatment is a great choice for a contemporary space, or try a distressed treatment, like the one designer Joanna Gaines used in this cottage-style living room.
