Written by Our Home


Posted on April 03 2024

In our busy daily routines, our homes are like our safe havens, where we can chill, refuel, and escape from all the chaos that's going on outside. Among all the rooms in our homes, the living room is usually our favorite—it's where we relax with family, hang out with our besties, have fun with guests, or just cozy up with a good book.

For a truly relaxing living room, thoughtful design is key. Incorporating elements that promote tranquility and comfort can create a haven of relaxation. Our Home offers exquisite furniture and design services to help you transform your living room into a peaceful retreat.

Here’s how to style your living room for relaxation with Our Home:

Furniture Selection

The living room is the heart of our homes, where we unwind, hang out with friends and family, and create lasting memories. So, it is important to carefully choose furniture that exudes style, comfort, and harmony. 

Comfort should be a top priority. You want your sofa and armchairs to be cozy enough to sink into and relax in for hours. Whether you're reading a book, watching a movie, or just taking a nap, you want your furniture to feel like a warm hug.  Our Home offers a wide range of stylish and comfy living room furniture to choose from, so you can select items that match your personality, taste, and style. 

If you have a large family or often have guests over, a sectional sofa is a great pick. It has an ample amount of space for everyone to sit and relax. For something cozier, a loveseat or accent armchair are good choices as relaxing chairs for the living room. Explore Our Home’s living room sofa set collection for more seating options.

A coffee table or a center table is an essential piece of furniture for any living room. It serves as a practical surface for placing drinks, snacks, and magazines, and it can also be used to display decorative items like a flower vase with fresh flowers, books, scented candles, etc. Our Home has a diverse collection of coffee tables, ranging in shape, size, and style, catering to various tastes and preferences.

Color Psychology 

Color plays an important role in interior design, as it can significantly influence our moods and emotions. By carefully selecting a color palette that promotes serenity and calmness, you can create a living space that feels like a sanctuary. 

If you’re wondering what is the best color for a living room, go for soft neutrals like beige, ivory, or pale gray. These hues not only visually expand the space by creating a sense of airiness, but they also have a calming effect on the mind. 

Our Home has mastered the art of creating a serene living environment and offers a wide range of home décor and furniture in various shades and tones of these soft neutrals that help achieve this ambiance. Whether you prefer a classic and timeless look or a more contemporary style, we have everything you need to customize your living room to reflect your personal taste while boosting relaxation. 




Beige walls, ivory carpet, gray sofa, matching armchair, and neutral pillow covers create a cozy, harmonious living room. To enhance the calming ambiance, you could also incorporate other elements such as sheer curtains in a soft, gauzy fabric, which would allow natural light to filter in while maintaining privacy. A few well-placed faux plants could also help to bring a sense of nature into the space, creating a more serene and harmonious environment.

Proper lighting is like a magical wand that can transform the ambiance of your living room, setting the perfect mood and creating a space that truly reflects your personality. Forget harsh overhead lights that cast cold, sterile shadows. Instead, embrace the beauty of soft, diffused lighting that envelops the room in a warm and inviting glow.

Imagine coming home after a long day, stepping into a living room bathed in gentle radiance. A floor lamp in the living room corners casts a warm glow, creating a cozy reading nook. A living room pendant light above the coffee table provides ample task lighting for intimate conversations or game nights with friends. Accent lights strategically placed on shelves and side tables highlight your favorite décor items, adding depth and dimension to the space.




Our Home believes that lighting is an art form, and our collection of lighting fixtures reflects this philosophy. Our elegant floor lamps, pendant lights, and table lamps are designed to illuminate your living room with gentle radiance, creating an atmosphere that is both inviting and stylish. 

Sensory Touches 

Engage all your senses to create a sanctuary of comfort and relaxation. Begin by introducing the sense of smell with scented candles and reed diffusers. To create a calming atmosphere, choose soothing fragrances such as lavender, chamomile, or sandalwood that fill the space with a relaxing aroma. Strategically place the scented soy candles around the room on surfaces like side tables, mantles, or coffee tables to ensure even distribution of the scent and enhance the sense of serenity and peace.




Boost the welcoming and inviting energy in your living space by layering soft throw pillows and plush cushions on your furniture. Get cozy and sink into the velvety goodness of chenille or faux fur cushions. These will make your room feel like a warm hug, perfect for snuggling up on a chilly day. Place your blankets and pillows strategically to create comfy corners and inviting spots where you can chill. 




To enhance the sensory experience, incorporate ambient lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Don't forget about the sense of hearing. Consider adding soothing sounds to your living room to create a serene environment. This could include playing soft instrumental music, nature sounds, or gentle water features. You can also place wind chimes or bells near open windows to let the natural sounds of the outdoors in.

Decluttering and Organization 

Living in a clutter-free environment is like inhaling a breath of fresh air for your mind and soul. A tidy space invites relaxation, productivity, and a sense of balance. When clutter is minimized, there's a greater sense of clarity and tranquility. This can significantly impact your mood and overall well-being. To create a clutter-free living room, take the time to declutter and eliminate any items that don't serve a purpose or bring you joy. 

Remember, less is more. Remove unnecessary objects to create visual space and allow the room's natural beauty to shine through. Invest in smart storage solutions that keep clutter at bay while enhancing the room's aesthetic. Look for storage ottomans with hidden compartments or sleek shelving units that double as decorative accents. These solutions keep items organized without compromising style.

The key to maintaining an organized and clutter-free living room is to regularly set aside time to tidy up and put things back in their designated spaces. By doing so, you can prevent clutter from accumulating and keep your living room looking its best. Your living room becomes a space that reflects your inner peace and serenity, a place where you can truly relax and be present in the moment.
