  • Asian is popular. I think target has some cute rugs that you could decorate around.

  • I like more of a natural style. We have tan suede/dark brown leather couches, dark wood shelves and credenza, and wrought iron. The wrought iron adds a nice touch. My decorations are leather picture frames with nice family photos, Thomas Kinkade pictures, and wroguth iron candle holders/sconces with moss green colors. I think Thomas Kinkade art is beautiful but it isn't something everyone likes so it's unique.

  • I'm not big on themes, since they get old quickly. For refreshing a room, I suggest finding either an area rug or a large piece of wall art and using it/them as your starting point. You can draw your color inspiration for everything else from that main piece: pillows, curtain panels, wall color, pillows. I would suggest finding something that works with the style and color of your sofa since you probably don't want to replace the most expensive thing in your living room...

    Good luck!
