Interior Design Living Room

Living rooms need love too! Everything is always about the kitchen and the bath. But your living room gets a lot of activity. It needs to be designed well too. Busy schedules make it difficult to spend time together as a family. You don’t want your family members fleeing to their bedrooms because they’re more comfortable there.

Living Room Makeover

This client wanted a brand new interior design living room, including the painted concrete fireplace.


The fireplace in this interior design living room had a dated look and it stood out; it didn’t bring the room together. And the scale of the mantel was too small for the fireplace and the room.

I refaced the fireplace with glass tile and slate, then built a larger scale wood hearth and mantel, painted the walls and trim and pulled the interior design living room together with an area rug and accessories like pillows and throws.

A New Focal Point

This living room interior design had beautiful woodwork and built-ins. The fireplace had a broken hearth, unusable wood-burning furnace and textured bricks. The result was that the whole wall just looked like a dark box and there was no focal point in the room.


Living Room Interior Design Before


To unite the interior design living room, I tiled the hearth with the same slate tile used in the home’s entryway. I tiled the façade with stone and glass tile to brighten it up and make it the focal point of the room. We removed the wood-burning furnace and lighted the inside with candles and strings of lights until the client decides to install gas logs.
