There is nothing revolutionary about black and white as a color combination. Yet, somethings are dubbed ‘classic’ for a reason! A black and white couch instantly holds your attention even while making sure that the color scheme of the living room is left completely undisturbed. The more intricate the pattern more is the visual impact! The black and white couch can bring patterns that range from simple dots and stripes to chevron outlines and wavy forms. As seasons change and color trends come and go, you can simply switch out accent pillows, accessories and smaller decor pieces around this couch to usher in trendy panache!
The harmony of wooden and beige elements in this modern living room blows us away. It’s a great exhibit of how soft neutral decor can always find its place, even within progressive living spaces!
An open plan living inside the urban apartment is quickly becoming the norm and today’s kitchens and dining space are no longer hidden away and detached from the living space aesthetic. This obviously means furniture and design solutions now need to be more fluid and dynamic linking multiple spaces visually even while bringing diverse functionality. It is precisely this idea that is the driving force behind Living Carattere designed by Vuesse. Complementing the refined Carattere series of kitchens from Scavolini, these ultra-minimal living spaces blend aesthetics, ergonomics and space-saving flair with plenty of finesse!
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.
A gorgeous wooden accent wall can offer much more than just textural contrast in a contemporary interior dominated by polished finishes. A fabulous curved accent wall like the one below brings with it loads of intrigue and a touch of 3D beauty that brings the interior alive. The wavy strips of wood that hold both the television and the shelves around it seem like a work of modern art as they elevate the style quotient of the dashing apartment in Columbia.
While most people gladly embrace white while shaping the backdrop of the living room, kitchen, bedroom or dining space, white decor is an entirely different proposition. Speaking for a strictly practical perspective, they are pretty difficult to maintain over a period of time. In a living room that sees plenty of traffic along with kids and pets constantly moving around, the white sofa is definitely a poor choice. But for those who do not have to deal with endless rush and little ones jumping around on the couch, the white sofa can bring sophistication and elegance to the living room.
