Feb 14, 2023

If you are looking for fresh living room inspiration to bring your Perth home to life, you have come to the right place. No matter the size or style of your living room, there are plenty of clever and creative ideas that you can employ to make your living space look and feel truly magical.

From small but effective tricks like bringing in one standout feature piece, to bolder statement pieces and design trends, we have something available to suit every preference and budget.

Colour Scheme Ideas

Exploring how to use colour schemes to accentuate your space and bring life to your living room. With the right choices of colour, you can add character to your living room and make it a space you love!

For a traditional look, consider shades of beige, cream, and taupe. Or for a slightly more modern take, you might opt for muted blues and greys, or even bold jewel tones like emerald green. Additionally, you could add natural elements like wood tones for contrast and texture like this Empire Buffet with Rattan Weaving, or bring in some metallic accents for a touch of glamour like this Multi Butterfly Wall Art.

Layout Ideas

Layout is an important part of creating a functional and inviting living room in your home. It can determine the flow of the room, from where the furniture is placed to the size and shape of the seating arrangement. With a little bit of creativity and thoughtful planning, you can create a layout that works for you and your family.

For example, how many people need to be accommodated in the dining room? This will dictate the size and placement of the dining table and chairs.

Furniture Choices

When considering furniture choices for your Perth living area, think about what items are both functional and stylish. Do you prefer traditional or modern looks? What type of seating do you need: chairs, sofas, ottomans, etc? Consider the size of the room and the number of people who will use the space. Once you’ve determined the basics, uncover furniture pieces that will bring your dream living room design to life.


Accessorising is a great way to bring life and personality to any living room. It’s also a great way to inject a bit of colour, texture and pattern into the space. Accessorise with artwork, rugs, and other items to add a unique touch to your living room.
