NY Good Questions: How Should I Decorate This Room?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I need help with quite a few things in decorating my living room!

I recently bought an awesome new sofa, a tv stand, and some really cool art prints.

I have a start, but I don't know where to go from here.

I need help with frame choices, matte choices, art placement on my walls, and any other genius decoration ideas I know the users on this site are capable of...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Right now everything I have gotten so far seems to be a muted green or tan. I do have those two prints that have a more vibrant green, and I am definitely interested in adding more color to the room than just those muted tones.

All of the prints that I have been collecting have been things that remind me of wild imaginations or books, or even something whimsical. I want to keep with that theme.

I do have a few limitations on what I can do to the room:

1)I am unable to paint the walls. I move too often, and I want whatever style I choose to be easily transferable. I definitely want to have the option of painting it one day if I settle down, but for now it isn't possible.

2)I want to avoid buying a big coffee table for the center of the room. I've got a big 80 lb. dog and don't want to take up too much space that he could use to lay about.

Thanks! Katie
