If you think that you are making any big decorating mistakes, this is the perfect article for you!

Let’s be honest here! Living rooms are the most important spaces in our homes, but most of the time we mess up the decorating process. Anna Kroesser, a designer for Kroesser + Strat Design said that she saw a lot of furniture stacked against the walls in the living room.

Even though many people think that by doing so they are making more room, in reality, it’s vice-versa because it actually decreases the space, and it can make it look less welcoming.

If you want to know all the decorating mistakes you’re making without realizing it, we did all the hard work for you! We have spoken with several interior designers in order to come up with these tips, so all you have to do is keep reading! Want to know which are the most common faux-pass? Here they are!

    I have never heard of scones lighting before. I am assuming you mean sconses. Found most everything interesting though.

    What a good variety of ideas.
    I hadn’t really realized I had a themed living room. I thought SW, but it’s more AmerIndian. Plans to change it out slightly.
    The first 3 ideas are the ones I’ll be implementing first. I never think I have enough pillows. They and my artwork are the “color” in the living room. But, I’ve noticed my guests always moving them off of the furniture.
    You hit on the things that I’ve been taking for granted/not noticing.
    Thank you.
