Woven furniture is the perfect choice when decorating the room in coastal decor. It embodies the comfort and almost holiday-like feeling that can only be felt at the beach while sipping cocktails!
Bright living rooms decorated in a clean and simplistic way are the perfect place for a minty sofa. If you are wishing for just a hint of boldness, add an armchair in a stronger shade of mint!
Today’s world is all about multi-tasking and adaptability and most of us barely manage to squeeze out enough time to rest and relax even while doing more than one thing at a time. It is barely a surprise that the design and decorating world is following suit with furniture that can be easily moved around and altered to satiate your constantly changing needs. Gone are the days of the stoic living room couch and its central, immobile presence! Modular sofas and sectionals are quickly becoming the norm in living rooms across the world and they definitely are a top decorating trend in 2017.
We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of decor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
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.
Blue for the living room couch is no longer viewed as a daring decorating choice. In fact, bluish-gray contemporary sofas are popular among the most popular around. But those craving for snazzier and more dazzling shades of blue might want to think twice before they bring home a sofa in cobalt or peacock blue! It is not so much about whether they look good on the catalog page as it is about how much you really like the particular shade and tint of blue. If it is just a passing fascination, then you might have to splurge on a brand new sofa just a few seasons down the line!
