Interior Designs For Living Room
First, let’s determine what actually needs to be done. Bring out your list. And don’t be daunted by the size of it.
What is most important and critical on this list? Does Johnny need new sheets because he ripped his other set? Yes, sheets and towels and shower curtains are very much a part of decorating. Even kitchen towels. (Mine come into play for every season, red for Christmas, rust colored with leaves for Thanksgiving, etc.) If your towels are dingy, ripped and stained, hey you need to address that, especially if visitors can see them. And while you’re at it, buy yourself a new pillow!! I don’t know how many times I’ve seen someone’s bedroom, and the quilt or bedspread is stained and faded, and there is one skimpy, flat pillow. But I digress!
You will actually have three categories as you’re looking at your list. The first will be small items, like towels, pillows, bedspreads and linens. These are smaller items which you could allocate purchasing over a few months and try to match purchases to sales. Buy them in order of urgency and also those that bother you on a daily basis.

The second category is rearranging. Try this first with your existing furniture and see if you can change the look of the room without buying expensive furniture. And when you’re thinking about this, look to unused furniture in other rooms and even things your friends and relatives might not be using and could donate to you.
The third dreaded category is furniture purchases. It strikes fear in my heart to go shopping at the furniture warehouses. I keep asking myself, “What if I make a mistake?” And the thing that bothers me is that you generally have to live with furniture you’ve purchased for years!
In any event, you might have a list that looks like this:
Pillows for bed
Dishtowels and sponges
Plants for living room
Towels for guest room
Couch for living room? (slipcover?)
Chair for bedroom?
