Living Room Ideas From The Rug Seller

Summer is the perfect time to change up your home ready for the new season. Whilst people may call the kitchen the ‘hub of the home,’ the living room is still very much the heart of the home, so we suggest starting there.

Here we’ve shared some of our favourite living room ideas for 2015.

Cosy country living room

Give your living room a cosy country feel with neutral shades, rustic furniture and classically designed sofas. For a more modern feel, add pastel or bright accents using soft furnishings like cushions and home accessories.

Country living rooms look great with washed wooden flooring but if you want to make everything a little cosier, we definitely suggest adding a rug under your coffee table. One of our extra large rugs will make a wonderful choice.

Create a gallery wall

If you are looking to add a simple but stylish touch to your living room, why not create a gallery wall? This is basically a wall featuring a series of beautiful pictures.

You don’t need to spend a fortune on expensive artwork for this to work. Family pictures or art prints you have purchased online will work equally as well, whilst also injecting a little character into your home.

If you want to go for a more formal look, choose matching frames for your pictures, whereas if you prefer something a little more retro or rustic, a mis-match of frames will look great.

Sunny yellow living room

If you like to inject your interior designs with a little colour, we definitely recommend following the sunshine yellow trend. It’s one of the hottest colours of the season and will have your living room looking bright, fresh and welcoming.

The key to styling your living room is to choose your sofa and furniture in neutral tones and simply use sunshine yellow pieces to add a pop of colour. You’ll find plenty of yellow cushions, lampshades and vases that will inject colour into your living room. Our Diva Yellow rug will also make the perfect addition to your sunny yellow living room.

Design a feature wall

If you want to make your living room look like it’s just stepped off the page of a homeware magazine, then a feature wall is the way to go. Why not pick out patterned wallpaper? This year botanical and organic patterns are really on-trend and great for bringing a little of the outdoors inside.

Keep the rest of your walls plain and pick out the colours of the wallpaper with your home accessories.

Scandi living room

Scandinavian design is still in vogue,so why not choose it for your living room interior? Think minimalist furniture, printed soft furnishings and modern lighting and you’ll have the perfect design.

We’ll let you into a little secret – just because you’re going for a scandi living room, doesn’t mean you have to buy everything from Ikea! Sure they have some great furniture but there are plenty of other places selling Scandinavian style home furnishings too.

If you are looking for the perfect rug to go with your scandi living room, our geometric rugs will make a great choice.


With so many beautiful design ideas out there at The Rug Seller, you are sure to find the perfect one for your living room. Remember that interior design changes don’t necessarily have to be big or expensive. Simply adding a few new home accessories or even a new rug is a great way to style up your living room on a budget.

Feel free to take a look at our gorgeous selection of luxury rugs to see what we have to offer.
