The mantle should really have a rustic edge to it. If you have a traditional piece then try painting it a country kind of color. This would include a red or blue. Stay away from a stark white or black because this is too traditional and modern. You can even just sand down your paint job to really give it that rustic kind of effect. The wood of your mantle is also very important. In this case it should resemble an oak or a weathered kind of wood. Stay away from a more elegant cherry stain. It's also really important to consider what you hang over your mantle. This could be a humorous sign. You could also have a special family photo taken for the occasion. This could be a picture of everyone in cowboy hats. For more of an artistic flair you could just focus in on a line of cowboy boots. This is a way to get a totally unique family portrait that is also a conversation piece.
Don't let the living room ideas stop there... you now need to think about the furniture. You don't have to go out and buy new furniture; you can make use of what you have. This is your time to be creative. Start moving things around or think about painting walls.
The more themes you incorporate, the more creative you will have to be but the process is basically the same. It will also depend how similar or different the themes are. Combining some themes like an Asian theme and Zen theme would be easier than a Zen theme with a rock-star theme. The primary task here is to identify the common factor in the living room ideas. For instance, in combing an Asian and Zen theme, you would incorporate a more natural Asian representation like bamboo, jade and the concept of feng shui. You could also incorporate meditation cushions that would be used in Zen lifestyle and simultaneously represents a classic Asian seating arrangement.
If you already have lamps then you can just change the lamp shades and this can affect the lighting. Lamp shades are a really cost effective way of doing things. Just keep it simple and experiment with different options.
A key factor of any room is the lighting. You can affect lighting in so many different ways so it is important that you get it right. You have the standard lights that are on the ceiling; you have table lamps and floor lamps. Floor lamps are becoming more popular and the reason for that is their flexibility. You can put them in any area of the room which means that the move them about as you wish.
