Call it what you will — living room, great room, family room — it’s the room that expresses your vibe.
So consider the following before you outfit it:
Decor is like clothing — shoot for layers and a variety of textures.
Focus on the architecture. Find furniture that fits the geometry of the room.
Consider hanging art on one wall; books on the other.
Decorate your windows. Hang plants. Get a sculpture.
Lastly, if you’re working with a designer, trust them. They’re like your tailor.
They’ve done this once or twice before.
