Using vases or potted plants creates a comfortable atmosphere in the living room. The vases or plants can be displayed on the floor or on the tables throughout the room. If there is an entertainment cabinet, place objects on the top of the cabinet.
Add an area rug in the center of the room creates a nice touch for decorating the room. The rug helps to center the focus on the area of the rug. Creating a center focal point will make the rug area the center of attention drawing people to that location this is practical for all entertaining purposes.
The center rug makes a great conversational piece too. People notice the different things in a person’s home. The rug will draw attention and compliments. It will help to create a nice addition to the living room and the décor. Stylish rugs change the look of the room.

Adding a rug at the front door creates a welcome effect and sets the mood for the living room décor. When the entrance way is directly near the living room, use the opportunity to announce the theme of the living room. Show your guests what they will be experiencing in the next room. Draw them into the living with anticipation of the wonders kept in the room.
