Small Living Room Decor
When it comes to decorating a small living room, you have to think about the details. As it is not possible to use many decorative items so that the environment is visually loaded and ends up giving the wrong feeling of looking smaller than it already is, the tip is to customize the essential items.
It can be a lampshade, a “do it yourself” coffee table and even the photos, what matters is creativity. Plants are also the darlings of the room because in addition to giving color to the environment, they have different sizes and species that can fit into your available space.

How to use colors in a small living room
The colors are responsible for bringing joy to any environment, especially the living rooms, which are the meeting point for friends and family. In this case, the pillows can fulfill this role well. It is important to emphasize that the print it will have and even its colors should match the rest of the decoration of the small apartment, for example.
Other elements that give a discreet touch to the small living room but also speak a lot about the residents’ personality are the paintings and the rug. Both are decorative objects and should be chosen with great care, especially in relation to the rug that needs to be the right size to give a feeling of spaciousness in your room.

If your goal is to have an exotic environment, with a featured piece of furniture, adding a little color will make your small living room much more charming. In order not to go overboard on decorative items, choosing a single point of attention can be the ideal solution.
Sofas are the most desirable but we shouldn’t be stuck with that, the accent color can be on the coffee table, on the rack, on the puffs and even on the shelves. Therefore, it is worth using your creativity when coloring your furniture.
But be careful, the best thing is to put only one piece of furniture in the spotlight, otherwise the attention will be divided between many pieces of furniture and this will end up offering the feeling that the environment is small.
