Answer : A common mistake many people make with their living room design is to fill the space with too many personal and quirky items. This happens because they often think of it as a place just mainly designed for friends or family and not themselves. The trick is to strike a balance between enough furnishings that are meaningful for guests but also personal items, without even overdoing either side of the spectrum.
A few pieces that every living room should have in order to avoid looking unfinished are pillows, artwork, plants and some footrests at least. What your taste buds may crave while hung-over on Sunday morning will be different than when you're hosting dinner party on Friday night so choose wisely.
