Creative and Affordable Living Room Designs
Since seasons change and styles evolve, wallcoverings are the perfect solution to update your space, especially if they are removable and reusable. Quick and easy, these chic decor pieces transform a living room into whatever style tickles your fancy. Here are just a few inspiring ways to accomplish your desired look.

To spruce up your living room without overwhelming it, try stationing a Casart mural behind your main seating area.

In a color that complements the surrounding space, wallcovering provides an eye-catching feature with a high-end, designer appeal, like this Lively Lattice from the Libby Landon Collection.

For added intrigue, arrange the wall art in vertical strips.
This can also be achieved with wallpaper stripes that act as temporary and interchangeable strips. You can create any pattern with these, use on the horizontal, or vertical and remove, reuse and change around.

If your budget doesn’t include full-size wallfinishes, no worries. When it comes to design, sometimes little is much. Supposing that your living room houses a coat or storage closet, consider decorating the door panels. Instead of fading into the background, your closet can lend a hand in accomplishing an impressive design.

For a cohesive look, tie everything together with coordinating throw pillows. Simple and budget-friendly, you can transform casual accents into statement pieces by using pillow slipcovers. Whether for your sofa, loveseat or chair, a decorative pillow instantly adds character to your living space.
Built-Ins or Bookshelves

For an artistic flair, try using a Casart wallcovering to turn the back walls of your bookshelves or display cabinets into exquisite paintings. As pops of color peek through, this creative design method provides just the right amount of flavor to spice up your living room. If your shelves are too full, consider covering the outer side panels to achieve the same effect.

A fireplace mantel presents an excellent opportunity to express your creativity. Often the focal point of a living room, updating this item can have a substantial impact on your home’s overall atmosphere. Depending on your tastes, chevron stripes, floral prints and geometric designs are options that would look breathtaking on a mantel.
By thinking outside the box, you can use wallcoverings in a variety of unexpected ways to produce the living room of your dreams.
