A home makeover is in order, and we have brand new ideas for you!
After a month of getting to know which are the interior design trends that are in, and the ones that were buried in 2017, it’s time to start planning your home makeover. And because we want to help you achieve the home of your dreams, here are a few living room ideas that will help you deciding what to with your new family room!
Danish modern look
If you’re not sure if you are willing to go full mid-century with your home makeover, you can go with a more scandinavian approach. Our suggestion is to opt for a danish modern inspired design. This will create a modern home decor that’ll make you happy you decided to trust us!
Get that Ultra Violet
Remember the color of the year by Pantone? You’d better remember, because you’ll be seeing it everywhere this year! We advise you to get an accent element for your mid-century living room in Ultra Violet. This way, the room won’t feel overpowered, but you will still get the bold twist you’re looking for.
You’ll find out that many original mid-century modern homes had room dividers. Why? Not only do they add an interesting element to your decor, but in many cases they can be very useful. In this case, we recommend that you use a teak, open room divider, that will allow you to get a little bit of storage when needed.
A true mid-century living room is never lacking a mid-century credenza. And while West Elm’s sideboards might be all the hype, if you really want to make your living room your own, you should go with a bespoke credenza. Dandy, by Essential Home has that retro look we all love so much.
Mid-century plant stands
A great living room idea is a plant stand. Yes… A plant stand. These mid-century plant stands look great, and they’re even better because you DIY your own stands, and create an exclusive stand for your plant. The key to a great living room is to always make it unique!
What about a bench?
A bench can be extremely useful in your living room. Aside from your mid-century sofa, you can also get a cushioned bench with some storage on the side. This way, you will have even more space to receive friends and family, and who doesn’t want extra storage?
Think of it as a whole

Our last home decor tip is to think of your living room as a whole room when designing it. Even if you have a starting point, you should always think of the finished result. This way, all the corners, colors, patterns, and materials will make much more sense and everything will fit together at the end.
