Need Inspiration for our new living room

EJ N37February 5, 2013
Hello creative minds! We are so excited in moving to our new house and we are in the decorating phase. We have this lovely living room settled on a wooden floor with a nice chimney & dimensions of 19x15. We'd appreciate to give us some of your time and inspire us with creative ideas and advices on how to transform it into a great room!

It is a good idea to place the TV like it is now or move it above the chimney?

Hi Joy, a wood burning fireplace will generate too much heat to put the TV above, you'll ruin your TV.

That's a good point, thank you so much! Mary, what do you think of the room? It's big 19x15 and I'm lost in which style should I go with to make it alive. We love colors, so we want something special modern yet classy. Do you have any thoughts?

Yes Mary, it's the furniture of the previous owners. We basically have an empty living room.

Then the room is your oyster :) Start a wish list of colours, fabrics and furniture selections you are attracted too. You can do that on Houzz with saving images you like to your 'ideabooks', determine how you want to live in the room, what the function/s will be and then ask for more help here or if you need more help hire a decorator local to your community for expert advice. And, remember, it's suppose to be fun.
