When you are planning for a fun, new sunroom that takes you away from the usual rigors of life, why should the decor inside it be plain and boring? A swinging daybed is a great option for the modern sunroom that intends to be a touch different. We all love a dash of ‘levitation’ and a swinging daybed combines this with ample luxury and plenty of playfulness. You can still decorate the space around it with a couch, a few armchairs, a nice little coffee table and of course, indoor plants. But you can rest assured that it is the hanging daybed that is the unrivaled star of the show.
Turning a Scandinavian style living room with modern aesthetics into a monochromatic space should not require plenty of work. It is arguably the easiest style to work with for those trying to create a lovely, monochromatic living space in white. Most Scandinavian living spaces are inherently minimal, use a pristine white backdrop, stay away from bright colors and are filled with plenty of light. Just remove the unnecessary excesses, replace any colorful decor additions with those in white even while leaving the accents in wood and indoors plants untouched. Those wanting to move away from an overdose of white can also try out lighter shades of gray, which give the same aesthetic as darker shades of white.
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.
The thing that we love the most about many of these delightful, contemporary modular sofas is the freedom they present with the colors that you can bring into the living room. The sofa is no longer a monochromatic addition and different vivacious hues can be coupled with neutral modular pieces to bring in the best of both worlds. With these innovative and uber-comfy modular designs decorating ease does come in more ways than one.
Sure, the open pool deck or the outdoor living area look great right now. But soon the warmth of summer is bound to give way to colder weather and a desire to stay indoors. This is of course an annual affair and in some parts of the world, even summer can get pretty dark, dreary and even rainy! With that mind, a sunroom definitely feels like a practical addition that allows you to take in all the warmth without having to deal with the vagaries of weather. Sunrooms bring along with them a plethora of advantages and come in a variety of styles ranging from contemporary and Scandinavian to rustic and Mediterranean. But as an avid reader of Decoist, you knew that!
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.
