  • 5. Geometric style
Geometric décor is perfect for any modern living room. It's not only timeless, but it also can fit a range of décor styles. - You can use shelves, stools & chairs, sofas & sideboards in geometric shapes or patterns
- Try geometric patterns in your textiles, like floor rugs & even upholstery
- Add a statement-making geometric lamp or chandelier
- Create a gallery wall using blank frames in a color scheme that plays off of your furniture palette using square, oblong & rectangular shapes

In a living room design that includes squares & triangles, integrate round objects, too.

6. Industrial vibe
Design your living room so it has a relaxed, warehouse vibe. Here are a few ideas to create loft-like industrial decor where you live: - Have a dark leather couch share the space with wooden tones, from the flooring to a side table or bookcases
- No artwork is needed when you have a row of piped lighting with Edison bulbs that's front and center as a focal point
- Standing lighting can be emphasized with an industrial-style design that has a commercial photo studio aesthetic
- Bring in a piece with an industrial feel to it as an alternative to a mundane coffee low-lying table

Always think about textures and patterns for your floor rugs to emphasize your color palette, like black and white stripes.

7. Monochromatic
While some design theories push more color in room decor, here's an idea for just the opposite. Some spaces are made for a monochromatic color palette, like the living room. Refresh the space with a chic shade of gray for an Insta-worthy aesthetic. Here are a few more ideas to inspire: - Hues of gray and beige are both flattering in their own ways, so choose greige, which is a perfect blend
- If you love a white room, try off-white with shades of cream for a relaxing and soothing palette
- Pair oversize paintings, velvet slip cushions and a chandelier in a blue-hued monochromatic living room
- A slate color palette pairs well with black, white or pale wood tones

Remember to aim for contrast with a monochromatic color theme. Give traditional furnishings a modern twist, but be aware of things looking too flat, so make sure to use textures.
  • 3. Vintage charm

Distressed is definitely a design look. When it's wonderfully weathered and worn, it's perfectly imperfect. What makes a shabby-chic living room stand out? Here are a few simple tips: - Add furnishings to the living room that include icons of shabby-chic style from designer Rachel Ashwell, like a vintage distressed dresser
- Use textured slipcovers and well-worn velvet on an over-sized French sofa or chair to add elegance
- Integrate a re-purposed mirror to reflect light from a hanging chandelier and also help make a small living room look larger than it is
- Create a gallery wall with thrift store pastel-colored frames to match dreamy floral prints in muted tones

You can source your shabby-chic vintage look at flea markets and antique malls where booths are full of distressed dressers, picture frames, mirrors and textured fabric. Add a focal point by draping fabric across the back of a well-worn velvet chair or couch.

4. Boho chic

Bohemian is in! It's a little bit eclectic, a little bit modern and plenty of vintage. Reinvent your living room space to this individualized style. And consider making a bold statement with an object in the room. Here are a few tips to create a Boho-style in your living room: - This is a no rules concept, so you can mix it up with colors, textures and patterns, or simply opt for monochromatic
- Combine vintage furnishings with new for visual interest
- Integrate layers of colorful fabrics and pillows, a basket for storage and a richly textured wall hanging
- Use textures in muted shades and layer to help give your space tactile warmth and softness

Unpretentious and accessible, you can use objects like macrame or a multicolored rug on the wall. Even subbing in daybed seating with lots of natural textures and patterns galore can change up a living room into a space that begs to be lounged in.
  • Need great living room ideas for your apartment? No matter the size of your apartment or the floor plan, we can help.

You'll find inspired ways to enhance with color, greenery and more. To help maximize your interior design chops, we've broken down interior design ideas into themes you can make your own.

1. Mid-century mod

For fans of the high-style of mid-century modern decor, here are a few quick ways to add modern cachet to your apartment. Keep your eye out for wood. We're talking about teak, walnut, oak and rosewood.

Modern is about clean lines. Don't shy away from pieces from the middle of the 20th century because of your budget. You can find a lot of look-alike furnishings from famed architects and furniture makers of the era.

Your key to mid-century modern style includes finding pieces to love at flea markets and vintage shops. Look for designs that are replicas or mimic mid-century icons: - Wood furniture with clean lines
- Pendant lights and other unique fixtures that offer function and form
- Sunburst mirrors are the epitome of mid-century design for a classic focal point
- Keep your living room paint color simple (preferably a white or off-white hue) to showcase the craftsmanship of the furnishings

2. Green thumb

If you're someone who loves to surround yourself with plants inside and out, then this living room could be perfect for you.

Adding plants is a quick fix refresh to your living room space. And it's great for any time of the year, but especially when the season is dreary and cold. It's a way to inject some cheer to an empty spot in your living room, or by a sun-filled window. Some say house plants can even help to reduce stress.

Add a lush, green plant and colorful ceramic or stoneware pot to your living room. Up your style game immediately with these tips: - Find containers that are interesting to look at to help make the plant a design statement
- Display plants together in groups of three. One plant should be larger than the others.
- Use containers of varying sizes, textures and styles for an eclectic mix
- Choose planters that have striking visual elements like a ceramic glaze or a geometric pattern with leather accents.
  • 5. Sort through your entertainment collection
Do an inventory of all your books, movies and games. Find efficient places to store them, discover some old favorites to pass the time and donate the items you don’t enjoy anymore (retirement homes, children’s hospitals). This might be the time to let go of old CDs and VHS tapes — things that take up space and have limited use.

6. Pass the time with the past
Parse through your photo collection — both physical and digital. Going through photos is the perfect time-consuming project for social distancing. You’ll get to reminisce and remember good times, while also making it easier for your future-self to create albums or find specific photos.

If you have time to take it a step further, you can create a book or scrapbook or share with family in a cloud account. This can be a great time to share family stories with kids or ask older family members to share their stories.

7. Go for the garage
Garages and sheds are often host to random gear, tools, storage and the remnants of moving. Cleaning and organizing your garage is a physical task, great for some exercise and fresh air.

These spaces tend to collect more dirt, dust and grime than inside spaces. Empty out the garage or shed, then sweep and hose down the area. Go through everything and decide what you want to keep, sell, donate or throw away. Sort things by category and plan out where you want to store different item groups. Utilize shelves and hang things to create vertical space. Consolidate similar items.

8. Clean out the car
A detailed cleaning and organizing of your car is great preparation for the eventual return to work and normal outings. Sort through all the random nooks, crannies and glove compartments. Bring with you two bags, one for the garbage and one for items to relocate. Like extra eyeglasses, coins, receipts, old DVDs, empty drink bottles, etc.

One task at a time
There’s an opportunity to use your time during quarantine for things you wouldn’t normally have time for in a pre-coronavirus routine. Cleaning, organizing and reflecting on your material possessions will help you feel productive. It’s OK to purge and make space for other necessities.
  • We’ve compiled a list of ways you can organize your home for quarantine.

1. Organize your pantry
As you’re prepping your home for quarantine, going through your pantry and shelf-stable items is a great first step.

Shoved way back in a corner of your pantry might be food that’s about to expire. What a great time to use up those older items rather than letting them go to waste. Since grocery store shelves are more empty than ever, I would suggest organizing your pantry and fridge/freezer before anything else in your home. It’s important, especially under the current circumstances, to rotate your food, consuming the oldest first – so that nothing goes to waste!

Start by pulling everything out and marking expiration dates. Take an inventory of your shelf-stable essentials and what you might need more of. Wipe down your pantry and cupboards before you start putting everything away.

2. Designate a space for work or school
If your job has shifted to working remotely, or your kids are doing their schoolwork at home, you’ll need to clear some work space. Setting aside a designated space will help keep the line between work and home from blurring, and make it easier to be productive.

Keep only the essential items on your desk. Wall pockets can be hung on the wall to store files and papers. Paper sorters on a desktop keep things separated and vertical, eliminating visual clutter and freeing up space to work.

3. Create physical space for mental space
Since you’ll be spending a lot of time in your home, we recommend decluttering and rearranging your general living spaces. Clearing the space will help it feel less cramped, has several mental health benefits and can make you feel productive. Utilize closets and space under beds. Take a stab at rearranging your furniture to create more open areas.

4. Organize your closet
Do a deep dive into your closet. Try everything on and consider donating clothes you haven’t worn in a year or more. Neatly fold and organize the things you want to keep by activity, style or color. Box away seasonal items, like big coats and warm scarves, to give your clothes more breathing room.
