Sweeping Walls of Books

Another clever way to redo the living room look without having to splurge a fortune is by giving all those books in your home a much more prominent spot. A wall of books in the living room adds color, contrast, and class to the living area without seeming out of fashion. It also allows you to rearrange patterns and colors by just moving the books and you would never have to spend on a makeover.

Wood and Metal Shelves

Wood and metal shelves are a part of the recent trend that has seen homeowners move away from polished modern finishes and towards, rustic, traditional materials. Both wood and metal bring in this natural touch to the living room and do so without feeling alien in a modern setting.

You can get pre-made industrial-style shelves like this affordable one from Amazon, or you can DIY them with the help of these pipe brackets. These shelves can stand in contrast to modern entertainment centers and TV units and you can use them as focal points to create lovely displays as well.

Small Colorful Sofas that Delight

If you are not a fan of the gray sectional, then going down the brighter and more gorgeous colorful sofa route is one you must surely explore. Be it one in sparkling velvet red or enticing emerald green, a sofa in bright yellow or tangy orange, this season is perfect for lovers of bold color. The best way to pull off this look is by ensuring the rest of the living room remains as neutral as possible even as you repeat the color of the sofa with small accents and accessories.

Décor for Tiny Living rooms

This might not exactly be a trend that everyone can catch on to, but for most urban dwellers with limited space, the idea of modular, adaptable and multi-tasking living room décor is a life-saver indeed. A small sofa that folds out into a daybed when needed, dining table that also works as work table, bunk beds with workstations below that sit at the end of the small living room or shelves that disappear when not needed; functional tiny living room décor maximizes space with ease.
