Even though it is the couch in gray that seems to be the most popular these days, a fabulous sofa in black, white or even a blend of both the colors is a timeless choice that never fails. The beautiful sofas have remained as relevant a century ago as they do today! The style, materials used and finishing might have changed, but the allure of black and white has remained constant. Since most of us cannot afford to change the living room couch (or have the energy for it) with changing color trends, these seemingly neutral additions are a safe choice. So, why wait!
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.
The sofa is much more than just another piece of furniture in your home. It sets the tone for the rest of your interior both in terms of style, decor choices and the general theme and color scheme that you use. If you happen to have an open plan living, then your sofa choice becomes even more crucial. We understand that many of our readers are not really interested in changing such a pivotal piece of the home decorating jigsaw all too often and that is why many stay away from a colorful couch. Instead a sofa in black and white or even gray is the preferred choice. But 2016 and the first half of 2017 seem to disagree with this!
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last two years, you would be no stranger to the geometric decor trend. Geo decor has found its way into every room of the house with homeowners replacing traditional round mirrors with those featuring hexagonal frames, the simple lighting fixture with wiry, geometric pendants and the common square or rectangular coffee table with something a lot quirkier. In a living room dominated by simple, straight lines and plenty of monotony, a hexagonal coffee table or one with an abstract, polygon outline can make a huge difference indeed.
The quickest way to assure your living room feels like a nautical zone is to incorporate elements that you would actually find while sailing through the ocean! Some ideas represent a ship’s wheel, paddles and a nautical telescope.
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.
