You should also take detailed measurements to ensure that you choose a bed that really works with the space you have available.

A Comfy Couch

A sofa serves as the foundation for your living room design. It can also serve as your home office or dining room table before you stock up on other kinds of furniture.

Interior Design Tips: Successfully Decorating an Eclectic Family Room

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Interior Design Tips Successfully Decorating an Eclectic Family Room

One of the biggest trends currently filling the pages of interior design magazines is the use of varying styles in a room to create an intriguing and unique environment. If you are a fashion-forward homeowner who would like to jump on board with this trend, there are some basic concepts you should learn before you buy furniture and coordinate your décor. Here are some tips for successfully decorating an eclectic family room:

Use a Rug as an Anchor Piece

An easy way to begin decorating any room in an eclectic style is to purchase one large item to set the tone. Buying a bold area rug from your local consignment furniture store is a great step to take, as you can use the carpet as a base for further purchases. For example, a sophisticated Persian rug placed in the center of the room could be accessorized with a contemporary sofa and traditional coffee table to create a look that is modern and functional.

Add Color with Pillows

After you buy furniture for the family room, add some drama to the space by purchasing pillows in bold colors and prints. A neutral leather or upholstered sofa can come to life when adorned with contemporary pillows in shades like coral, turquoise, or magenta. Another hot trend is to add texture to a family room by picking pillows with ruffles and beading.

Vary Your Lighting Style

Whether you’re a fan of traditional chandeliers or modern floor lamps, you won’t have to make up your mind one way or the other when it comes to choosing a lighting style for the family room. Eclectic living rooms can be illuminated with help from a variety of different lights that span styles as diverse as rustic country to mid-century modern.

If you are ready to begin the process of redecorating your family room, come visit the Home Consignment Center. Our Bay Area stores are the perfect place to buy and consign furniture that embodies contemporary and on-trend styles. Call us at (925) 272-4318 to learn more about the benefits of doing business at a high-end consignment store.
