The Window Treatment - Do you have one large picture window as part of your living room design? Or, it might be that you have a few strategically placed smaller windows. No matter the size of your windows, consider selecting wooden plantation shutters. Besides being really beautiful, wooden plantation shutters like are affordable and easy to maintain. Just dust them when you are dusting the rest of the wooden furniture. If they need extra attention, clean them with a soft damp cloth and a gentle cleanser.

The Other Decor - Since you want to establish a garden theme, think of going with the colors of nature for your furniture upholstery.

Or, if you decided to go with something like a floral design for your upholstery, then choose an assortment of colors from nature for the throw pillows.

Add interest by choosing fabrics of different textures for the furniture and for the throw pillows. Things like tassels and buttons also add interest to the throw pillows. 

When you select the artwork for your garden-themed living room, think of framing paintings and photographs of things like flowers, children at play in a beautiful meadow, and an outdoor flower market. Of course, a basket or a vase with very real-looking handmade silk flowers on the coffee table would be a beautiful addition to the living room decor. Choose things like coffee table books that feature famous gardens like The Butchart Gardens in Canada.
