Every homeowner has different ideas and preferences when it comes to the decor of different parts of the house. Although there are some basic rules for decorating each room according to the requirements, whatever style of decoration is adopted, it is essential to have a small personal touch in each part. The living room is usually the centre of every house and is decorated in a modern and luxurious manner to make it attractive and comfortable.

The easiest ideas for refreshing the living room and keeping it interesting in 2020 include using stylish furniture, furnishings and decorative items. The best way to enhance the decorative style of the area is to choose neutral colours and mix it artfully with strategically placed artificial lighting. Follow these simple trends for the new year to give the living room an attractive look that will earn the appreciation of friends and family!!

1. Play with texture

Textured finishes make even the most uninviting living rooms appear warm and creative. Furnishings with textured fabrics give a cosy and sophisticated appearance to the furniture and the region as a whole when used on sofas, footstools and cushions. Natural or handwoven materials in colourful hues against neutral-toned walls will remain favourites forever.

2. The ethnic touch

Take inspiration from Rajasthan's deserts and brightly hued textiles found on its streets as well as in its majestic palaces and forts. Patterns inspired by tribal motifs on decorative cushions and rugs will help to create a new look when integrated with modern elements. Combining the laid back style of mid-century Indian living and modern sensibilities will be a trend in 2020.

3. Natural elements

Adopt organic and eco-friendly materials and accessories to achieve a modern look. Layer the furnishings, use a soft colour palette and combine it with large windows that bring in natural light and views of greenery. Relax in style with flowers blooming just outside the window or within the room with natural light helping to divide the region for activities like reading, socialising or watching television.

4. Wicker furniture

Wicker furniture makes a stylish contrast when paired with leather or handloom upholstery. Combine the warmth of the country style with wicker or rattan furniture, modern tile flooring and large decorative pieces. Adopt multiple seating options to set up a living room that is perfect for socialising. It’s essential to know how to combine styles and sizes to create a well-coordinated room.

5. Abstract elements

Pair solid wood furniture with grey, white or any other neutral-toned accents to bring an edge to living room interiors in 2020. Choose abstract décor to enhance the look of the space and eliminate the clutter of too many decorative pieces. Unique abstract forms like dropdown lights, standalone art pieces, and geometric-print cushions can work as focal points in the area or complement other items in a formal living room.

6. Unique Coffee Tables

While side tables can perform the task of coffee tables, many modern living rooms need a focal area that serve as conversation starters. When choosing a coffee table for the living room, make sure that it is the right height for the sofa and other furniture so it can be used as a serving counter for guests or a place to arrange an attractive vase with fresh flowers from the garden.

7. Inspirational wallpaper

Wallpaper adds a layered look to the living room, turning a simple region into a bold area with lively colours and textures. They can be used to create a stunning focus region in small living rooms or to add character and depth to a traditional living room with a high ceiling.
