To make your wooden interior living room look more modern, you can stain it, paint it, or put on a new finish. But, there are some options that will give your living room a truly antique, handmade look.
Change the Look of Your Wooden Interior Living Room
One of the most famous choices is living room furniture made from pieces from the long island boarders of New York. Many of the pieces are hand painted with vibrant shades of reds, yellows, oranges, and greens. The look is reminiscent of the home of the prosperous merchant class.
The style of furniture you choose should match the theme of the room. If you have an eclectic crowd coming over, you could use a few mismatched accessories to add interest. Lamps, coffee tables, and other furniture items all look good with mismatched accents.
If you like the look of antique furnishings, this is a great way to combine it with your natural look. You can buy those lovely antique lamps, chairs, and tables. Find great antique lamps that are slightly different than the originals. Add an old-fashioned clock to the room.
There are some great types of China for your home that would look great in this antique look. Try using full size stainless steel tea plates with just a coat of vintage varnish. It looks very rich and expensive. You can find wrought iron tables, porcelain candlesticks, and other accessories that are beautiful.
Fresh flowers are the perfect accompaniment to any antique piece. Use soft yellow flowers in vases filled with white peonies and lilies, rose petals, and other fresh flowers.
Vintage barn doors can be used as dividers to separate one room from another. There are many different types of wood finishes that you can use. You can also use sanded woods with varnished edges for an authentic look.
With a little research, you can make your wooden interior living room look more authentic and attractive. The key is to choose a finish that matches the rest of your furniture.
