Multitude of chic Victorian and baroque inspired elements will radiate grace in your living room. At the same time, the vast range of friendly and warm colors is an important element as well and inseparable part of any vintage living room. Décor that decides the quality of your living room is extremely important in this design approach and must be closely matched with the spirit of the room that you are trying to set. From floors that rarely steer from the heavy wood to the richly decorated walls, vintage design is a truly unique direction that can give your living room a warm and exotic taste.
If you enjoy the clear cut look of the modern approach but you require a bit more warmth in your living room, eclectic is probably the best choice for you. While the word eclectic may sound contrary to the context of direction, once you start diving into this particular approach you will be amazed as to just how much guidelines it comes with. In its essence, most eclectic-based looks of living rooms try to mix together functionality, limited range of warmth and elements of modern approach to an extent. All this generally means that you have to maintain certain level of neutral colors awhile at the same time enriching the space with friendly elements like wood floors, common furniture and few radiantly colored elements like colorful floor rugs for example.
While there are plenty of different directions that you may take, the most important thing is that you enjoy the final outcome. Your living room space is an important part of your home and as such the most important audience is you. Stick to the ideas that you enjoy and design ideas that make you happy.
