There are so many ways to decorate a living room, but among so many styles and design options, it can be challenging to define the perfect house or apartment living room aesthetic. Every visual detail in the decor should reflect not only your personality but the emotions you want to feel when spending time in your living room. Your living room and house aesthetic should be an extension of who you are, a sacred nest where you can be and do you.

Unlike the clothes we wear or the makeup we put on, we are in contact with the same decor and furniture for long periods of time. Whatever we surround ourselves with has the ability to interfere with our mood, emotions, and therefore with our decisions. On that note, something as trivial as a tea mug or a food container can make a difference at the end of the day.

Therefore, if you are an optimistic dreamer you might feel good in calming and romantic soft pink environments. On the other hand, if you are a serious workaholic, a modern chic living room painted with sober colors might be the right aesthetic.

So below we list a few aesthetic living room ideas to help you set the right mood and connect with your intentions.
