Compromise is a critical life skill that enters every dimension of life-even decorating your living room. When you are thinking of living room ideas you may find yourself in love with multiple themes or in disagreement with a spouse or roommate. With creativity and an eye for style, combining decorating ideas for living rooms can be successful, fun and satisfying for everyone in your home.
The color palate of the room is another helpful tool to blend different living room ideas. Even if the décor dramatically contrasts in concept, you can get away with it if the colors blend. If you are determined to have your sports fan décor in your wife's traditional living room, color mediation is a solution. You could tone down the bright colors of a Lakers helmet by using a vintage display case. You could also print pictures in black and white or sepia prints to intertwine the two themes.
Having said that if you do have the money to purchase some new furniture then that is a lot more fun. It is important to set a budget though prior to looking as you know what it is like when you are out shopping and you get carried away with what you see.
Lamp shades are a great way of influencing light if you already have the right light fittings. You don't need to buy expensive lamp shades, just think about the likely effect on the room and make your decision from there.
If your chosen themes accommodate one another, you can create a unifying theme. Consider this: your spouse wants an Asian theme, your teenage daughter wants a gothic theme and you want a tropical theme. In such varied combination you may decide to do an around-the-world theme in your living room; this is like a miniature version of Disney's Epcot. You could incorporate Asian tropic plants, dragons and samurai swords that would incorporate all three themes. The point is, regardless of the themes, there is common ground to be found.
