Pls help me to decorate my place having some pieces of furniture, have a 3 seater leather sofa,2 accent chair with a zebra print and a fireplace with shelves on the sides and on top of that I have my 42 inch flat screen... My question is how can I decorate my living room with this kinds of furniture.. Is it possible to put some carpet even my living room is already carpeted? How about my wall? What do I need to bring some life there, I have a piece of painting too.  Do i need curtains,lamps,center table? etc Hope you can help me... every time I decorate my house  it ended very crowded and loaded..Hope u can help me to look cozy and have a happy living room....hoping i could get an enhance picture of my living room design and will try to follow the enhanced design...  looking forward to ur answer...Many thanks bare living roombare living room

Yes, I had a hard time decideing how to decorate my living room as well, and Im a designer :)So many blank walls means so many possibilites, its like tons of blank canvases. My main objective was to put up a wall mural to ad wow factor to my enourmous living room wall that I had no idea what to do with. Once this was up I arranged funiture and colours to compliment it. Here is what I have so far.. Its still a work in progress, but I have recieved many compliments and inspired others to try using wallpaper murals as well. If anyoes interested, the only place I would go for murals is www.muraldirect.com, best quality for resonable price. Still have to do something about that couch! Good Luck.

Your best best is some great colours on the walls.  Then no matter how much you have in there it will feel lux.  Pick a fabric or an object that you really love and pull some of the colours from it.
We often follow a French theme (which has loads of colour) but most European designers are saying the same thing right  now.  Check them out at www.jackryn.com or on www.theartoffrenchstyle.blogspot.com

Hello!Regarding the walls, a great piece of art makes a huge difference! I know when you think art people automatically think expensive. But, check out www.artisticallyconnected.ca this is a Canadian marketplace where local artists list their OWN work! This way you don't have to worry about paying gallery mark-up and buy direct! Saves you tones and there is new work posted every day. :)Brittany

Thanks for the prompt reply... I really appreaciate it... Some questions still lingering on my mind... the window right now has a soft blinds(white color), u mean instead of this, will inject the roman shade(wood or rattan,brown color) plus d curtain(orange) or should i choose between curtain or roman shade? or both?.. I have 2 pairs of throw pillow, one is green and the other are stripes of green,tea blue,white and brown, what rug color should i put to be able to match with  my pillows,accent chair with a zebra print(strong print i guess) and plus the orange curtain? What do you mean other knick knack?give me some ideas for the knick knacks. :)  Yes there still some space for the end table.  What if i want to use my fireplace as a focal point of my living room, is it possible? thank you so much Mrs.peacock...
