Each year there's a hot, new decor trend that changes up our living areas, with 2019 being no exception. So with your living arrangement being a broad term, we're going to focus on the living room and the decor that will spruce up this specific area of your home. Mixing modern and classic arrangements, the living room decor of 2019 is trend worth committing to!
Arrange With A Purpose
When you arrange the furniture in your living room, arrange it for good reason. Simply shoving furniture against the wall and leaving a void of space in the center isn't anything unique or interesting. So when you approach arranging your furniture, do so in a manner that's not only functional, but pleases the eye in terms of aesthetics.
So if you're confused regarding how a functional layout should operate, it should all be focused on an inviting seating arrangement. A rug is a perfect touch to add a bit more visual stimulation to a room, just as long it's sized appropriately. From here, having the seating facing a television or fireplace is an excellent way to tie everything together.
Large artwork is looking to be a big trend in 2019. That's right, bright furniture, dark ceilings, and large scale prints are what's going to modernize your living room this year. So to tie everything together and have it make sense, you'll want the wall art to take up an entire portion of your wall and be the focal point in the living room.
Now it should be mentioned that you should size the wall in which you install such artwork. If you're unaware of what these dimensions should be, you'll want the wall art to take up to at least four-sevenths of a desired space in which it will be hanging on. So in order to figure this out, you'll need to measure the width and length of your wall. From here, you'll multiply every individual number by 0.571, since this is four-sevenths in decimal format.
Don't Forget The Ceiling!
It seems as if every other year having a statement ceiling falls in and out of style. However, it seems as if they're making a big comeback that's here to stay. The significant difference between this revelation and the trends of the past is that people are leaning towards darker color pallets. Grays, blacks, and dark browns are what people are using to paint their ceilings. All in all, it looks great.
So if you plan on having your ceiling painted, it's important to not only limit yourself to a few colors. What one should do is incorporate the color of the ceiling with other furniture and furnishings in the living room. Some homeowners have gone as far as using temporary wall decals or wallpaper to make a strong statement with their ceiling.
Bright & Bold Seating
One major trend that has been taking off in 2019 (as far as living room decor is concerned) would be colorful seating. That's right! The brighter the seating, the better it is. Whether it be a barstool, accent chair, or sofa, a bold shade such as sapphire blue, emerald green, or ruby red will really make your living room pop.
So if you're planning on getting in on this trend yourself, it's important to remember one thing: the colorful seating needs to be a statement piece. However, it's important to balance out the chair with a neutral color scheme. This way your guests eyes will be able to rest and keep the design of the living room flowing. In addition to this, doing so makes the room easy on the eyes.
