Ever wondered why you tend to take a trip down memory lane when you would want to experience something sweet? Being modern might be in, but things that give you the ultimate happiness could always be the traditional ones. That’s also true in the case of your living rooms, too. Try bringing back the olden day magic to your living rooms and you would agree with what we say remember how Steve Jobs was famous for saying ‘What is the purpose of a sofa?

The first step that gets things moving along is designing a firm, fixed schedule for cleaning your home. It doesn’t matter whether you do it every day or once a week or even once a month; but having a well-defined schedule is crucial.

A crystal chandelier, decorative pieces and the like will also make your living room look traditional. Explore more with tradition in mind and you are sure to redo the most loved and visited space in your room into a traditional living room.
In small spaces and wide open spaces alike, delineating room from room is another design challenge that can’t be ignored! How do you divide your space with style? If built-ins are an option, why not use the fireplace as a functional screen? Below we see a Brio Clear Red tile fireplace from Modwalls.
What if the color of the walls set the stage for a room change? In the next image, a wallpaper pattern sparsely introduced in the living room completely covers the walls of the dining room in an interior designed by Celerie Kemble and Anna Burke.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
Sometimes the answer is as simple as relying on the furniture you already own. In the next image, a sofa distinguishes a living room from a bar area in a chic family home.
