Living Room - Any ideas?

Hi there :)

My wife and I have recently bought a fixer-upper and need to decorate our living room. I have left it all to her (I've done all the manual labour!) but we are really struggling.

Would anyone be willing to have a stab at designing room for us?

Only stipulations are TV on the chimney breast and carpet and the sofa are already bought. The wife is thinking like a dove grey and yellow theme? I hope you can help!

hello! congrats on buying a house! 

can i change the floor to wood floor or does it have to stay carpet only?


can i make the windows bigger to add more natural light?

Do you need a desk or dining area in this space?

A couple of questions. Is there a fireplace on the wall with the TV? And, can the walls be painted a different color or not? Thanks.

@Theadora No we have a seperate dining room

@millerfam there is nothing on the wall at the minute. Yes, paint away!! :D

Love those! The grey windows and doors are a great idea to break up the walls. Some great storage ideas too.

were is the house located?

Theadora - 21d ago

I changed the chimney breast to give it a little more pizzazz by adding metal panelling. On Roomstyler it's meant for the floor but I know you can get it for walls too. :)

@Theadora I love the contrasting chimney breast! I can't seem to see your design, I think it may be on private?

Every time you remix my design you will find that the bookcases have moved. This is because they are too big for the wall so I had to use a trick to make them stay.

I drew 2 walls that are not attached, placed the bookcases on them and moved them over the existing walls. The lose walls disappear when the design renders.

All you need to do is drag and drop the bookcases to the inside.

I added in a little navy to give a little more interest. 

Changed the floor to wood grey.

@PenAndPaper I think your room is on Private, are you able to put this on public please? :)

Lots of inspiration here, the wife has her work cut out to pick what she likes from these now!

Thanks a lot everyone!

Sorry about that @teo410 For some strange reason styler just started making the default as private and I don't realize it. Just changed it. 

Congrats on your house!!! 

I have a few ideas you could use, not all of them have yellow but lots of grey. 

I could design a room specifically for you... If you want....

I need new ideas anyway....just hit me up anytime!!
