Contrast is still a major part of the monochromatic living space and adding a hint of black here and there to the white living space helps immensely. This can come in the form of accent pillows with black piping, dark, metallic window frames or even a simple striped rug in black and white. Remember though that the line between a monochromatic living room drenched in white and one that veers towards a minimal, black and white color palette can be pretty slim at times! Yet, make sure there is a contrasting darker element in it all somewhere to anchor the room.
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!
There’s something about beige that pairs amazingly with countryside inspired decor! The mix of the two truly feels warm, kind and inviting!
Those seeking even more contrast can choose a coffee table that blends unusual form with warmth of wood or sparkle of metal to create a cool focal point. In most modern living rooms the large coffee table is being replaced by a collection of smaller coffee tables or even a trio of stylish side tables, which give a lot more design flexibility. This summer, try out this new look for a fresher and more vibrant living room.
You can spice up your beige living room with exclusive bright white pieces and enjoy in the clean style that mixes so well with the warmth of cream!
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.
