Any classic living room is known for its style and comfort. However, all its contents belong to past centuries. In my opinion, it’s a perfect play to entertain not only yourself, but also your guests as well. Why? Because you can afford the function it needs to furnish it in order to be a cozy room. Comfort is one of the major factors that should be felt in this room because it is the first place that people will judge your house from.
In order to create the classic living room look, go for easy and gentle wall shades. If your living room is small, pale shades are great. For stronger accent colors and well-contrasted shiny woods, you can go for creamy yellows, off-whites, rose shades or even beige. Also, added details, paneling and wainscoting along with cool paint effects are all great for creating the desired classic look.
If you want to create a focal point in your classic living room, a period fireplace does it all. Do you want to complement the look? You can go for something traditional like wallpaper designs, stripes or even elegant flowers. All of them are nice choices.
When it comes to style, you have many and many choices to choose from. For walls, either plain plate latex, marbling, decorative paint effects, or shiny and stained woodwork are great examples of matte. In any case you want wallpapers to have the classical effect on your walls, small traditional patterns like classic urns or wreaths, formal lines or decorative borders.
For flooring, if you want to go traditional, shiny and glossy wood or parquet, suitable carpet or small scrolling designs that cover all. For rugs, you have the traditional Persian and Turkish types. You can choose browns, blues or even pinks as colors for your rugs.
Always keep in mind that balance in one of the major factors while arranging your classic living room. If you want to have a classic living room at its finest, make sure your pieces of furniture, accessories and pieces of art are all kept balanced. Some may ask, what do you mean by arranging the living room? It means to arrange the pieces to equally all over the room to have an equal number of them on all sides. Although in many occasions, you need to place one large piece of furniture to counterbalance two other smaller pieces.
