Living Room Decorating & Home
The design or decorating style that you choose for your Living
Room or Great Room should define the style that the public areas
of your home follow throughout your home decor. This doesn't mean
that each room has to be a carbon copy of each other, however, the
design of each room should be similar if you want to create flow
- which you do!
There are many different decorating styles and home decor styles,
some of the most popular are listed below:
- Traditional Home Decor - In this decorating style typically
one or two furniture styles are limited to a room. It can be Queen
Anne, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Early American, Hepplewhite, Sheraton,
Chippendale and the list goes on. The upholstery, accents and
window treatments are common to the type that would have been
used at the time the furniture was produced. Traditional tends
to be more formal, but certain furniture styles can be casual
- such as Early American.
This room falls into the New Traditional, because
it pulls from past styles, without
feeling that it has to follow all of the rules.
This is a perfect example of Shabby Elegance.
Very warm, comforting with pale colors.
- Eclectic Home Decor- This is a very popular decorating
style and can vary from mildly eclectic to over the top eclectic.
Many people have a mildly eclectic home because they are slowly
accumulated furniture from miscellaneous sources over the years.
Mildly eclectic can simply be a mixture of furniture styles -
combining Queen Anne and Hepplewhite - and can be very similar
to the New Traditional Decorating Style.

style because of its bright colors and sense of whimsy. The colors
of a Matisse artwork, blended with wood finishes from paint to
fruitwood and cherry make this style very popular.

with its aging plaster walls, sun-bleached colors and simple furnishings
and you have a typical Italian Country look.
- Country - English Cottage Home Decor - In this decorating
style, the rooms are generally semi-casual with slipcovers in
cotton chintz, floral patterned fabric, mixture of furniture and
stacks of books, etc. It is a relaxed and comfortable style to
- Paris Apartment Home Decor - Elegant, but fun, this
style is a recreation of the turn of the century (1900's) chic
style of decorating in Paris. Paris was very influenced at this
time with artists, and was a very intellectual and contemporary
place to be.
This style would fall into the Paris Apartment
Style. It is very dramatic with rich colors.
- Modern - Contemporary Home Decor- Still influenced by
modern Italian design, the Contemporary Modern home has objects
that are not only functional but are also a piece of artwork.
Typically has straight clean lines.

Very interesting decorating style.
