The living room should reflect the people inside the house. People have become more and more open to new and innovative ideas. There are so many themes, colors, designs, materials, ideas that you can pick and choose from. Some people may go for an eco-friendly theme for example, using indoor plants and natural materials like cane blinds. Others may go for desert theme, using the shades of beige, brown and golden. People also may go for rustic theme, using oxidized metals and wood along with hand embroidery for the cushions and rugs.
