A simple white wall can become a dull element in a minimalistically styled home. The brightness of the space can start to feel without character and the perfect way to resolve this is to add some color to your walls. If you don’t like boldly colored walls, choosing the minty shade of green will be the perfect choice. It opens up the space, fills it with personality and creates a prestigious look.
Any colorful piece within a neutral room will stand out more than in any other setting. Beige is one of the best backdrops, so feel free to add one or two subtle but strikingly colorful elements for a bit of variety!
Just because you love a colorful couch does not mean you have to compromise on quality and comfort. Some of the best and latest sofas from the likes of Koinor and Max Divani epitomize this fact.

Throw in a peppy coffee table and complete the space with cleverly placed recessed lighting and you have a dream living room!
You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse.
It would barely come as a surprise to anyone following early trends of 2017 that natural design elements are currently a hit among homeowners and designers alike. Wood is the undoubted leader of this pack with modern homes embracing the warmth and organic elegance of the material at its beautiful best. Be it ingenious decor, stylish accessories or even exceptional backdrops, wood is pretty much everywhere you look around! Now is definitely a great time to get in on the ‘woodsy wave’ and you can do it without completely revamping your existing living room.
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.
Can’t resist when it comes to adding bright color to the living space? There are still ways in which you can do precisely that even as you accentuate the visual impact of your chosen monochromatic color scheme. A few cleverly placed books, flowers, an odd floor lamp in black and gold, a couple of dashing club chairs in red or purple or even a simple, colorful mirror frame the living room presents you with an endless array of ways in which you can add color. Once again, it is important to remember that less is more and the idea here should be to create a ‘wow factor’ without actually taking away from the monochromatic look.
What is a better way to embrace rustic natural charm than by bringing home wood, you ask? Well, how about finding some space for reclaimed wood in your home! Reclaimed wood adds another layer of richness to the interior when compared to newer wood surfaces and you can also find quality wood in old, discarded pieces if you know what you are looking for. An accent wall comprising of reclaimed wood planks also can create an eclectic or rustic backdrop that is perfect for living rooms that need a shabby chic, industrial or farmhouse twist to their monotonous modern personality.

A harmonious style of light and dark neutral shades instantly creates a lavish living room that has a big factor of comfort and an even bigger factor of luxury.
A peaceful living room manifesting the serene energy of a sandy beach, captured by white and beige color palette, is the ideal space if you are in need of a coastal retreat every day of your life!
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last two years, you would be no stranger to the geometric decor trend. Geo decor has found its way into every room of the house with homeowners replacing traditional round mirrors with those featuring hexagonal frames, the simple lighting fixture with wiry, geometric pendants and the common square or rectangular coffee table with something a lot quirkier. In a living room dominated by simple, straight lines and plenty of monotony, a hexagonal coffee table or one with an abstract, polygon outline can make a huge difference indeed.
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.
Home decor is like creating a mosaic where each small piece has big value. Your furniture doesn’t have to feel coastal at all, as long as you place in decor elements that send a clear message of your love of the sea. Andrew Howard has got some great ideas!
Moving away from the simple square and rectangles, it seems it is the circular and elliptical coffee table that is the more popular option in contemporary homes. This holds true in the case of the black coffee table as well with this trendy choice bringing in both visual and geometric contrast to a space dominated by neutral colors and straight lines. The hexagonal coffee table in black is another chic option while those really willing to experiment can bring home a masterpiece that is both abstract and sculptural in its silhouette. Beyond the form, it is the curated finish of the coffee table that gives it its contemporary appeal.
