If you’re unsure what type of art is the best fit for your living room, try mixed-media pieces. Mixed-media art combines various genres, such as folk, abstract, photography and sculpture, to create something truly unique. Here, a piece by Courtney J. Garrett combines photography, paint and texture work to create a rustic vibe that’s also moody.
One of the most common mistakes homeowners make when arranging their living rooms is placing large pieces of furniture against the walls and leaving the center of the rooms open. Instead, consider a floating space plan that involves flanking your space’s focal point with proportionate seating and tables. This will keep the room balanced while also allowing direct access to the TV or focal point, like in this red transitional living room.
