The heart of your home, the living room, is as much a design statement as a place to gather, relax, and play. The style of the living room is a backdrop that sets the stage for daily living and special occasions alike. 

Here are three ideas to add some head-turning style to your living room.

Minimalist-Eco-Friendly Vibes

Saving energy is great for the planet and even better for your wallet. So it comes as no surprise that sustainability will be all the rage for the foreseeable future. Show off your love for the planet in your interior design.

Eco-friendly pairs well with minimalism style, arguably the most popular design style for over a decade and well-known for its neutral colors and metallic materials.  

Some eco-friendly design ideas that go with minimalism include: 

Incorporating Concrete

Concrete is extremely long-lasting, and many types are made from recycled composite materials. Combined with that classic gray look and you’ve got an eco-friendly, minimalist solution. 

Painting with Neutral Colors

Neutral colors keep your rooms cooler by reflecting light away from your home, helping you cut back on energy usage during the peak summer months when your fireplace isn’t in use. For even more benefits, use a natural paint with a low amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) 

Put Plants on the Mantel

Plants are natural air purifiers, making them exceptional choices for better indoor air quality. Placing smaller plants on the mantel is a minimalist-friendly answer your fireplace needs. 

Add an Electric Fireplace

Electric fireplaces are a big part of the environmental solution, and many models look modern, sleek, and straight out of the future.

Lived-In Style

Your living room is the original multi-purpose room. It's where family and friends gather. It's where you spend an evening loafing. It's the center of game night or movie night. It’s perfectly reasonable to place TVs, gaming consoles, and speakers in this space for a lived-in look that's incorporated right into your design style. 

Here are some ideas for cozy living room ambiance:

Install an Electric Fireplace TV Console

These provide style, organization, and fireplace in the center of it all.

Put in Built in Shelves and Storage

Make plenty of room for all the things you'll need to make the living room the place to be.

Soft Furnishings

Incorporate throws, blankets, and cushions on sofas and chairs. Draping a throw casually over the arm of a sofa or arranging cushions slightly askew can create a relaxed atmosphere.

Personal Touches

Display personal items like books, family photos, travel souvenirs, or heirlooms. These items add personality and make the space feel lived-in.

Art Deco Vintage

If you loved The Great Gatsby, or you’re a fan of the Roaring Twenties aesthetic, it’s a great time to let Art Deco shine. 

Features like statement furniture and accent walls are taking back the living room. If you’re looking to make a big impression, some Art Deco upgrades for your fireplace’s wall include: 

Geometric Shapes and Patterns

Art Deco is characterized by bold geometric shapes such as zigzags, chevrons, sunbursts, and geometric patterns. Incorporate these designs into furniture upholstery, rugs, wallpaper, or artwork. 

Rich Materials

Use luxurious and opulent materials like velvet, satin, lacquer, chrome, brass, mirrored surfaces, and marble. Think glossy finishes and high-quality fabrics for upholstery, curtains, and pillows.

Statement Pieces

Include bold and eye-catching statement pieces like a geometrically shaped mirror, a sunburst wall clock, an ornate chandelier, or a ornate fireplace


Art Deco colors are often bold and vibrant. Jewel tones such as deep blues, emerald greens, rich purples, and luxurious gold, silver, and black are commonly used. Consider using these colors for upholstery, walls, or accent pieces.


Display artwork that reflects the Art Deco era. Look for pieces with geometric shapes, stylized figures, or sleek, glamorous portraits. Art Deco posters or prints can also be a great addition.
