Once you have an easy-to-style seat like the gray Rue sectional, the first living room décor idea is adding pillows. But, here’s how you do it.
Choose colors that will complement your space to determine your color palette.

Next, add a bold, patterned pillow in the next size down.
Lastly, add some pillows with different shapes, like lumbar pillows or a circle pillow.
Yup! We’re not done with the sofa yet. And that’s because throw blankets make everything better. Not only are they comfortable and keep you warm, they do wonders for your seating. Layering on a throw in the right color and material adds a cozy texture to round out your palette. Just drape it over an arm, and voila.
Never underestimate the power of wall décor! The style and subject matter can even spark conversation when guests come over. If you aren’t sure what your preferred style is, narrow it down by looking at wall art online or in person. Save any that you would consider hanging in your room. When you start to see a pattern, you are closing in on your favorite style. Also, an easy tip is to match one of the main colors in your room to the wall art.
Last, but certainly not least, we’re taking it to the floor. Rugs are an often-overlooked home accent that make a big difference in how the room looks and feels. They help define space, ground the look of your living room, and literally make it more comfortable. If your room has lots of solid colors, go with a print rug, and vice versa.
Those are some quick living room style ideas to help get you started. Even just applying a couple of these tips will get your gathering space well on its way to looking like it was styled by a professional designer.
