1. Stop shoving furniture
Shoving furniture with the walls and aligned chairs is something old school now and a trend that should be laid to rest. Leaving good spaces between the walls and the furniture is the new cool.
Make sure you leave equal space from all sides. This technique is called ‘floating’ in the modern furniture world.
So why do we opt for the floating technique? Floating the furniture creates an illusion of a bigger living room and plus a natural Brazilian cowhide rug is the deal breaker. Also, when you have a corner and places free, you can add green plants, shelves, and lamps in them. This gives your living room a dimension.
1. Paint one wall a different color
A large grey white cowhide rug and painting one wall a popping color like yellow, red, or blue would make a statement in your living room. This would make it a colorful backdrop to your photos and add brightness to your living room. Shades like red and brown make the living room inviting, and greys and blacks make it look spacious.
Off-setting one wall’s colors while the others are white makes the living room more artistic and exciting. Using neutral colors and texture to this one wall can make the living room vibe more accentuated.
1. A beautiful Brazilian cowhide rug
Let your living room be big or small, and a rug can lift up its whole vibe. A big central rug that covers most of the furniture draws a lot of attention in the living room. It adds more focus to your living room and creates fusion and contrast with the furniture theme of the living room.
A brown, cowhide, or fur rug in the living room can add a vintage and cozy effect to a living room. At the same time, a printed and geometrical patterned rug can make the colors flowing into it. Similarly, if you place a small rug in the entryway, it can add a direction to your living room. A rug in front of a console table and the bookshelf can add more value to them.
1. Wall space with a meaning
Interior designers focus on wall spaces, and they are right about it! A blank wall sounds boring and doesn’t appeal to anyone. So use your wall spaces wisely. A Brazilian cowhide rug with a brightly colored wall can be adorned with small paintings, family photos, keepsake frames, and much more.
Your wall spaces can be highlighted with mirrors and floating shelves to keep small cute stuff. Treat those walls as blank canvases and add whatever you feel like to them.
1. Use some wood
Rustic styling, vintage entryway, a beautiful Brazilian cowhide rug and A woody look to the living room makes it look cozy and homier. You can install wood paneling, rustic wood coffee tables, side tables, bookshelves, and carved wood art pieces.
Similarly, a chimney can be used to make your living room aesthetic and a good place for you to read poetry.
1. No islands
A living room is a place where the family bonds and has some chat over coffee and snacks. This means everyone needs a place to put their coffee or snack tray. This brings up the need to keep the furniture flowing with no part as the lonely island furniture. Make sure you have small nesting tables with every piece of sitting furniture to add support to it. This also makes the living room look modish.
1. The media unit
What is a living room without a TV and lots of small and large Brazilian cowhide rugs? Nothing. The TV is the central point of the living room which needs attention. When there is a TV, there is a media unit to store all its accessories.
It is not that you can randomly choose a media unit. You need to take in your living room measurements and then decide on a media unit that fits it. A too-big media unit would take up a lot of space, so be aware! A media unit is helpful in so many ways: you can place all your favorite games, movies, books, essential wires, chargers, and even decoration pieces in it.
Floating media units: Boho living room carries the best cowhide rugs from grey brindle cowhides to dark rustic patterns. The market is full of floating media units which are easier to cater to in a small living room and save up some space. A media unit is handy if you have a party or a game night at your house.
1. Mix and match
Do not be afraid of mixing and matching the furniture in your living room. If you have a two-seater in white color, then two mustard-colored armchairs would brighten the whole seating area up. See the mixing matching? This adds contrast and more attention to your living room and saves it from a dull monotone.
1. Add plants
Adding greenery in the form of artificial and natural plants is the new trend. Plants like peachy lily and mums are known for air purifiers in the living room. A plant in a corner right in front of the window and an extra large cowhide rug is the real Instagram shot.
Floating greenery like tiny fragments of plants in some pots placed on the shelves look beautiful and pop up the place. You can also go for artificial plants if you do not want to throw all the natural plant maintenance.
1. Choose practical fabric colors
It would be best if you calculated many things before choosing a sofa fabric, firstly if you have children in your family. They tend to make spillages now and then and real cowhides are very easy to clean and maintain. Secondly, if you have a dusty kind of environment, then go for a darker colored fabric or brindle cow rug for your sofas and throws if you have both of these scenarios. The darker shades make them durable and long-lasting.
Consider the same thing while choosing your area rugs. You would want to select an area rug of the dark shade in the entryway as most of the dirty shoes coming from outside could ruin a light-colored rug.
1. A window nook
A sitting in the window area can make your space look customized. A window nook can be made more interesting with a bookshelf installed. It can serve as a small ‘me’ corner where one can sunbathe while sipping his favorite tea and read his book. So instagramatic, isn’t it?
1. Coffee table alternatives
Your living room needs to have a focal point where every eye befalls. That focal point is a coffee table, cowhide rugs and its alternatives. Alternatives like an ottoman, C-ide table, or cluster of small tables can serve as coffee table alternatives.
An ottoman can be used as a storage box too. You can place all your favorite books and living room essentials right near you. Plus it looks fancy!

It's both fancy and convenient as you can place your tv remotes, a small plant, and your current book read in it.
Coffee table trays come in different materials like glass, brass, wood, and plastic. It's a minimal effort that adds to the beauty of the living room.

Movable cowhide stools are an excellent addition to your living room, and when you add cow fur to them, then it's fancy. Fur stools come in different colors with golden and silver brass legs. They are soft to touch and sit and can be matched with the living room theme.
1. Light fixture
A light fixture that goes with the theme is a must for every modern living room. A rustic-themed cowhide rug in a living room would want a brown and yellow colored fixture, while a boho-themed one would wish to a colorful light fixture.
A light fixture can add up to a slow movie night with your loved one while the other lights are off. How romantic? You can add pom-poms, dangling tassels, and rings to the fixtures to go the extra mile.
