For a calm living room, it’s all about light and gentle shades. Your choice of color scheme will define the vibe of the space. Fortunately, light colors have a natural effect that is both pleasing and relaxing. These are characterized as muted, simplistic, and calm.

When it comes to incorporating light colors, opt for neutrals such as shades of white, beige-brown, and light grey. And to incorporate warmth into the flooring, try choosing a subtle textured cream tile and match it with crisp white walls.

When it comes to adding a light color palette to your living room, you can stick to slabs of QG26303. Then, top off the design with minimalist furnishings such as neutral upholstery fabric, simple frames, potted plants, and white drawers.

For most people, living rooms are a sanctuary for relaxing after a long day at work. One decor idea to further exude this is through natural materials. Continuously rising to popularity among seasoned interior designers and aspiring home decorators alike, these decor elements have become a staple for styling cozy modern spaces.

Using materials such as wood, burlap, linen, and timber is a way to forge a link with nature. The result of this is creating an intrinsic calm ambiance.

In this photo, wood elements are used mindfully for doors, ceilings, tables, and chairs. Go for neutral carpets, curtains, and upholstery to truly bring out the cozy feel that you’re going for. Instead of using traditional lights, use rustic ceiling fans and wood-adorned lamps as well.


Have Plenty of Natural Light

For any space in homes, lighting plays a vital role. It can make or break the decor and even exude a relaxed appeal. There is no doubt that natural light is an instant mood booster. Unnaturally-lit rooms hamper the relaxing factor of spaces. So, let as much natural light as possible.

During the day, large and sprawling windows can let in more natural light. If you want some shade, you can opt for sheer curtains to create a soft, diffused light that still retains privacy. When the sun goes down, use warm ambient lighting to creating a calming mood.

As for the decor, matching naturally lit spaces with neutral colors is the way to go. This photo perfectly matched the subtle textured 60×60 stone-look tiles with wooden tables and a standout gray couch. Simple accessories such as light-colored throw pillows and potted greeneries unified the cozy design without being too disruptive.


Bring the Beauty of Plants In

By now, you would have probably noticed the popularity of indoor plants in homes. For a good reason, indoor plants are more than just a decoration. These can instantly breathe life into spaces and even make a positive difference in people’s well-being. Plus, plants improve indoor air quality as well.

A bunch of lovely flowers or an arrangement of green leaves can all bring a relaxed feel into rooms. It can be as simple as gathering a bunch of plants from your backyard and popping them in a vase.

If you have a hard time keeping potted plants alive, have an accent plant wall in your home. Check out how this bathroom photo pairs wood-look tiles for walls and floors and wooden tables to go with the accent wall.

The textiles that you layer on play an important role in creating a relaxing space. One look at drapes that pool on the floor and loose-fitting canopy curtains can bring a sense of calm.

Go for textiles on furniture such as knits, velvet, and suede. For rugs, carpets, throw pillows, and blankets, make sure to have coordinating colors. This cohesiveness will offer tranquility for your mind and eyes even more.
