Changing your window treatments is another way to change the look of your space, without completely replacing everything in the room. Using a different color or style of drape will alter the look of your living room and the furnishings in it. Going with a different type of window treatment can also dramatically change the appearance of your room. For example, going from cellular shades to drapes, or shutters. The amount of light in the space may also be affected by the change. More light may be brought in to the living room or more light might be filtered out. Also how you hang the window treatment can highlight high ceilings or a nice view, or conceal shortcomings.
Always start thinking about colors when the rug is selected. Let us say your living room is 14 feet wide and 20 feet long, most likely you will have a rug at least 8 feet by 10 feet (It is recommended to use a larger size rug). However, your rug is still the largest chunk of color that will interact with everything else in the room, so your paint colors can easily be drawn from the rug pattern. It always works better this way.
Feng Shui is the art and science of aligning the design of a room to be in agreement with Spiritual forces to bring in positive energy called chi into the room which affect health, prosperity, harmony and well being of those living within. The living room holds a place of importance in everyone's life. It the first place that a guest encounters when he or she enter the house, it is where you converse with your partner and the other family members and where guests and acquaintances are entertained. All these are helpful in building harmony in the family and personal relationships.
