From early times in the United States (U.S.), up to the 1970s, much family activity centered on the living room of a home. Also known as \"the receiving room,\" home makers took guests there as soon as they entered the home. This room contained the best seating and furnishings. There, the draperies hung finely about the windows. A small piano might reside in the room. A vase with fresh-cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints might rest on the coffee table. \"Eat something while I fetch coffee from the kitchen,\" a home maker might say to guests.

One striking new piece on your wall can change the look of the space. A new piece of wall art will become a new focal point in the room. New wall décor can highlight colors in the space and tie together a style in the room. For example, the addition of a decorative mirror with a wrought iron frame will add light and depth to the room while tying together the Tuscan style of the sofas and tables. Candles in wall mounted candle holders can highlight the accent color used in the room.

Choose the sofa as your primary piece and then complement it with different colors or patterns that allow all of the pieces to show off. One matching chair or even a matching love seat can be overcome by adding a contrasting piece to the grouping. Add complimentary throw pillows that introduce your secondary color choices into the space.

Consider adding a sofa table (even if it is a buffet in disguise that will add valuable space for storage, games, etc. that your family uses. When placed at the back of the sofa or love seat it frees up wall space, adds wood tones and a place to add lighting or candles and display space. Cut the legs off of an older buffet and create a special seating area by adding a pillow to the top!
