I need help/suggestions for decorating our newly built home. Thought I'd start off with our living room. Any suggestions?

Maybe you could add a coffee table in front of the couches? Also maybe a canvas hanging from the right wall?

Also I think I would prefer a longer and shorter table for the TV, maybe something very simplistic?

Best of luck! Smile

More pictures would be nice. Could you put the couch facing the love seat with the console table behind the couch. At the end of the love seat, an end table and lamp. Hang your TV on the wall and paint your console black like your console. I think you have a coffee table (black one) now....if you wanted to change that, get a glass one or use an ottoman to put your feet on. White drapes or sheers the same color as the walls would be nice. Then you would have room for a nice side chair at the ends of the couch/love seat facing the TV.

Maybe some curtains or blinds for the windows will help the walls look less empty. And perhaps some family pictures on the wall (or artwork in general).

If you start there other stuff might start to fall in place.
