Take note of these handy hints:

Create mood lighting by placing table or floor lamps in your living area.

Define the space with an area rug, which can also help you choose the colors and finalize the feel you want to achieve in your home.

Organized photos, artwork, or prints would [also] be nice on walls. This will give you a chance to display your personal collection, and could define the personality that you want to achieve for your home. Install them at eye level. 

Styling Tip: Mix Unity and Variety

Even if you put different things in your living area, they should share a common denominator. Here, the throw pillows may have different patterns, but they carry the same black and white palette. The rest of the accessories are neutrals and have contemporary silhouettes.
