Decorating a living room or a family room can be tricky. That’s why I always make sure to speak with my clients and get to know their lifestyle needs. From there, I’ll have an idea what living room design elements I can incorporate to make their home reflect their family’s culture and values. As a Malibu interior designer, I always make sure to apply the essential elements every living room should have. Here’s how I evaluate each piece of furniture, accessory, and how these will make a serviceable living room.

My new client came to me to produce a total living room design on a budget in time for a party she was giving in 3 weeks time. She brought me a floor plan of the room. At first, she was convinced she wanted a sectional sofa, but together we decided a sofa was a better option. She had ordered a sofa and chair from a large discount store. However, when it arrived she realized it was too large. It was also of such inferior quality that she refused to accept it and demanded a refund.
The popularity of green living and eco-friendly home designs continues to rise. We have not only become better stewards of mother nature, we also appreciate the innate beauty of natural elements. Therefore, we want to incorporate this into our overall home design.
A living room has many functions. It can be used to accommodate and entertain guests, as a place to relax, sip a warm and soothing cup of tea or do completely nothing but hangout. If you don’t have a separate space for the family room, the living room can be used for watching television and spending time with the family.
