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.
For a more intricate atmosphere, pick a tone at the darker end of the beige spectrum, almost so similar to light brown that you can add some actual brown pieces to the mix and create a very soft, prestigious interior.
Beige is the Switzerland of colors. It’s so neutral it can easily work with all colors and styles. A simple beige living room appears elegant and posh, but add some rustic elements to it and watch it transform like a chameleon into a cozy room radiating hospitality.
