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.
A de-saturated color palette always feels slow and unhurried, which can be seen in this peaceful living room that channels the easygoing lifestyle of the coast!
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.
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.
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.
Water is not the only charming thing at the beach. A lot of the magic stems from the sand! It has a calming energy, filling us with inner peace to the point where we don’t care if we are totally covered in sand grains, we simply never want to leave the serene beige scenery! Your very own living room can carry so many sandy elements you will soon feel like every day can be beach day!
