Bold, striking and sophisticated black makes a big impact in a room even when used sparingly. Often relegated to window and door frames, black can be used in more ways than one in the modern living room as well. Making an instant impact even while blending in with the rest of the room, a black coffee table is one such stylish and dare we say, trendy option. Moving away from the transparent beauty of glass and acrylic coffee tables and the warmth of those in wood, a black coffee table seems inherently more contemporary and far more polished in appeal.
With summer here most of our days are spent on the pool deck, patio, or any other outdoor space that we can find. It is the time to shed layers of extra clothing and to embrace the warmth out there; a luxury for people in some parts of the world that is fleeting. Yet, there are ways in which you can still enjoy that fuzzy, warm feeling each morning (or even afternoon) all year long by turning towards the sunroom. Often, homeowners feel that a dedicated sunroom needs lot of space and that is definitely not always true. Everything from a long corridor with glass walls to a corner in the living room can be easily turned into your very own ‘sunroom’.

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.
Candles and cushions are the elements that will enrich a coastal living room and make it feel more cozy and intimate kind of like a secluded beach.
