Embrace warm wood tones. The warmth of wood helps to balance out the cool tones often found in gray, so embrace wood where you have it. If you have wood paneling or wood beams overhead, install an eye-catching light fixture to draw the eye upward. If you have wood built-ins, style them with colorful, curated accessories to ensure they’re a focal point.
And the fabric has a gorgeous linen look but seems so very durable – a huge factor when I’m choosing furniture that my kids will be using regularly. To make that easier, Article even has durability scores of the fabrics on their site; they recommend looking for fabric sofas with a Martindale rub test of at least 25,000 rubs… and the Cube surpasses that by a long shot with a score of 100,000.

Mattress and Bedding: Not only is it an inexpensive decor idea for the living room but also a great Indian decor idea. This is how Indian baithaks or areas for receiving visitors were decorated even before there were any sofas. All you have to do is place one or two mattresses on the floor of your living room depending on its size. Cover them with ornate bedsheets with plush it up with long side pillows with matching pillow covers.
