For a living room decorated with much consistency, choose your decor pieces (such as cushions) wisely. Have them match your mint walls to create a similar color palette all throughout the room.
A beige living room is an ideal place for socializing, due to the softness and familiarity of the creamy interior. It feels very predictable, but in a good way! There are no hidden surprises in the room what you see is what you get, which is a kind and warm space!
We always advice our readers to think beyond the confines of the square footage of their home and to harness all that additional space which those walls have to offer. Wall-mounted decor not only frees up precious foot space, but these cool floating cabinets, shelves and modular units also give the living room a more cheerful, breezy ambiance. They undoubtedly cut back on visual clutter and you can even use them to introduce new patterns, textures and sculptural features. Just remember though that you might not want to go berserk with wall-mounted modular units in smaller living rooms as they can easily seem overbearing when done wrong.
A gorgeous wooden accent wall can offer much more than just textural contrast in a contemporary interior dominated by polished finishes. A fabulous curved accent wall like the one below brings with it loads of intrigue and a touch of 3D beauty that brings the interior alive. The wavy strips of wood that hold both the television and the shelves around it seem like a work of modern art as they elevate the style quotient of the dashing apartment in Columbia.
The right pot for your indoor plant not only allows it to grow to its full potential, but also adds to the style of the interior. Dark and polished pots are great for the contemporary, minimal and modern sunrooms while terracotta and ceramic pots fit into rustic, farmhouse and traditional sunrooms. Pots with more intricate pattern and bright design can enhance the charm of your Mediterranean sunroom while small, hanging containers and trendy planters with geo design can house your succulents and air plants.
Creating the perfect living room is as much about the aesthetics as it is about ergonomics and in contemporary homes with an open plan living, it is this curated space that sets the tone for your entire interior. Even though it is the couch plays a pivotal role in shaping the living style, theme and overall ambiance, a smart coffee table that complements your sofa and is the protagonist among the supporting cast! A striking coffee table can alter the appeal of a living room with ease and a simple switch in the coffee table can give the entire area a completely different visual appeal.
A sofa in neutral hues that vary between pristine white to light browns and bluish-grays are generally the norm in most living rooms… that is, till just a few years ago! Today’s living rooms are going down a more exciting path with revitalized trends from ravishing 80s and nostalgic 70s making a grand comeback. A colorful and striking sofa is definitely a part of this exuberant new look.
A de-saturated color palette always feels slow and unhurried, which can be seen in this peaceful living room that channels the easygoing lifestyle of the coast!
Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living rom. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition.
Dark woven chairs and navy blue cushions are the ideal contrast for a white interior, giving the room a feeling of balance and coziness. The subtle sandy rug reminds us of a sunny beach day!

The elegance of this room is very genuine and we love how different shades of beige work together. They blend with one another and create a harmonious and attractive living room.
The wooden end table with its rustic finish feels as much at home in modern homes as it does in traditional and farmhouse settings. Combine raw wood with glass and you have an even more elegant and exceptional side table that draws instant attention. Those looking for a bit more ‘luxury’ can opt for a side table with marble top and slim metallic base.
The feeling that beige captures so well is one of comfort and security that we all yearn for within our homes. Emphasise that feeling by adding some wooden pieces to your neutral living room.
