Trend-Led Decor Ideas to Upgrade Your Living Room

These simple living room upgrades are all you need to create a restful retreat, no matter your style

By: Charlotte Pavitt

Should you be about to embark on a front room revamp, make these trend-led living room decor ideas your first port of call. From lounging to hosting, the living room is one of the most important spaces in your home and is, thankfully, by far the easiest to update in an instant without requiring a full remodel. All it may take is a statement piece of furniture, a curated selection of cushions and a dash of Liberty print. Whichever of these home decor trends resonate with you most, they all pave the way to creating a space you truly feel proud of - just in time for sofa season.

Organic Modern

Soho Home Sylvia Table Lamp, £275

Organic Modern is about swaddling your space in comfort and serenity - emphasising natural elements, clean lines and warm, earthy neutrals. Sound inviting? We think so too. Consider texture as the most important factor to create the ultimate den, including raw materials like rustic woods, marble, jute and wool to add depth to your neutral scheme. Now is the time to soften everything up at home by replacing linen cushions with velvetsin saturated tones and adding a heavy wool throw or two slung over the sofa to make Netflix nights all the more cosy. Create a sense of calm with low-level lamps on your side tables to amp up the ambience and accompany your stacks of Sunday papers. Every detail counts.

Eclectic Maximalism

Liberty Botanical Stripe Wallpaper in Jade, £130

A trend led by feeling rather than fashion, there’s more to Eclectic Maximalism than just ‘anything goes’. Add vibrancy to your living room with layers of colour and print, sure-fire ways to boost your mood. Select every new piece with intention by sticking to a palette of three to four shades that have the same hue and intensity, and mix up the scale of your prints to avoid visual chaos. Transform with instant impact by adding wallpaper to your chimney breast and accessorize the mantle with a colourful Candl Stack 06, £70 to make striking a match feel extra ceremonial once the dark nights roll in. Dial up your sofa styling with a host of cushions of varying prints in groups of three to allow more room for lounging. Remember to separate areas of pattern so that the room doesn’t feel so busy.

Coastal Regency

HAY Stripe Candles Set of Four, £19

If deckchair stripes and wavy, organic shapes inspired by the coastline are your thing (as opposed to lighthouse motifs) then make Coastal Regency your new aesthetic. The colour palette is muted and decidedly retro, taking inspiration from promenade to pier with minimal nautical motifs. Look to transition your living room decor by injecting stripes at every turn - from your candlesticks to storage - and streamline with cosy neutrals. Whether hosting slumber parties or late-night charades, your coffee table can moonlight as a dinner table, games board or at-home bar so ensure it has the treatment it deserves with mood-setting candleholders, a trinket dish for matches and a playful set of coasters (as a polite reminder of where guests should stow their glasses).

Cottagecore

Coco & Wolf D’Anjo and Mitsi Valeria Scallop Frill Edge Square Cushion, £79

To really nail the homegrown, countryside feel in your living room, invite Cottagecore to stay. Harness the charm of an idyllic country cottage with your textiles, and layer in playful ceramics like a gingham candle holder or a fairytale vase in cornflower blue. Encourage romanticizing your life even further with home fragrance inspired by Liberty’s iconic Betsy print lit by your favourite reading chair, and push your lighting to its floral extent by embellishing with Coco & Wolf’s Betsy Lavender Tiffany Shortie Lampshade, £425. Does your sofa-time double up as craft hour? May we suggest creating your own puff quilt to add charm to an old sofa. After all, the living room is for living in, not just looking at.
