A great way to declutter the entry hall and the living room is to bring in a sleek and practical sideboard that does it all. Whether you wish to find a spot to display your favorite art pieces in a casual fashion or want to tuck away the unnecessary even while finding space for your brand new flat screen, contemporary sideboards do it all. Some even offer the option of a retractable chamber that simply hides away the TV when not needed! Those longing for less fancy additions should definitely consider sideboards with midcentury modern style that offer plenty both in terms of storage and style.
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.
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.
Many of the latest modular sofas can also easily be turned into dashing sectional by adding additional units over time. As the needs of the family grow with time, additional individual modules can be brought in. And when it is time to party, moving a couple of units out to create additional floor space becomes an absolute breeze. It is this versatility that makes the modular sofa such a huge hit in an open plan living.
If the interior of your living room is leaning towards neutral, choose some wooden elements to balance the scale and bring in some warmth and coastal vibes!
In a modern living room with many eye-catching elements it’s sometimes hard to pinpoint the focal point, almost as if we don’t know where to look. A striking mint sofa solves this problem in an instant!
Surrounded by cheerful colors, this mint sofa feels rather cool and discreet. Its presence in the room will make sure your modern and trendy decor gets an element of stability!

You want your decor choices to elevate the style quotient of your sunroom without actually compromising on comfort of seating capacity. Industrial, and eclectic sunrooms often end up with large leather sofas. Since direct sunlight can really damage this lovely couch, it is best to keep it away from the windows and direct light. Plush seating in white with floral pattern or pops of pink is great for the shabby chic sunroom while most tropical, modern and contemporary sunrooms look best when filled with decor made from natural materials. Rattan or bamboo outdoor furniture is a fine option here and you can even think about synthetic rattan decor as a more durable substitute.
Once you have the ‘seats’ part of the seating arrangement sorted, it is time to get to the arrangement part of it all. Sunrooms are all about a sense of warmth, openness, natural light and cheerful ambiance. By filling the sunroom with too much furniture, you can ruin this visual appeal. In smaller sunrooms, custom built-in benches and sofas next to the window that are unassuming go a long way in giving the interior a spacious vibe. With larger sunrooms, create individual pockets of decor maybe a small breakfast zone here, a comfy conversation nook there and seating for the entire family at the heart of it all!
Space-savvy living room storage options come in a wide range of styles and the one you choose should not just be about aesthetics alone. While floating, open shelves look simply stunning in all those catalog images and at the furniture store, it can all get pretty messy and fast, if you are not really the ‘organized’ type. Those having to deal with constant chores, busy days and kids might be better off with closed cabinets that conceal more than they reveal. And if you are still in doubt, then shop for storage units that also offer a bit of display space to get the best of both worlds!
Today’s world is all about multi-tasking and adaptability and most of us barely manage to squeeze out enough time to rest and relax even while doing more than one thing at a time. It is barely a surprise that the design and decorating world is following suit with furniture that can be easily moved around and altered to satiate your constantly changing needs. Gone are the days of the stoic living room couch and its central, immobile presence! Modular sofas and sectionals are quickly becoming the norm in living rooms across the world and they definitely are a top decorating trend in 2017.
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.
Today we take a look at a completely different aspect of sunroom design, which moves away from style and focuses on a love for all things green. Indoor plants are far easier to maintain than you think and with air plants currently a part of hot decorating trends, it makes plenty of sense to give your sunroom a green upgrade. From orchids and passion flower to the resilient ZZ plant and awesome succulents, there is plenty of variety to choose from. Then there is the matter of countless displays you can try out.
A living room with dark beige walls and a creamy sofa has all the attributes of a modern-day sanctuary that feels safe, soft and traditional.
