Sure, the open pool deck or the outdoor living area look great right now. But soon the warmth of summer is bound to give way to colder weather and a desire to stay indoors. This is of course an annual affair and in some parts of the world, even summer can get pretty dark, dreary and even rainy! With that mind, a sunroom definitely feels like a practical addition that allows you to take in all the warmth without having to deal with the vagaries of weather. Sunrooms bring along with them a plethora of advantages and come in a variety of styles ranging from contemporary and Scandinavian to rustic and Mediterranean. But as an avid reader of Decoist, you knew that!
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!
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.
Sure, monochromatic living rooms need not be restricted to white alone. But white is undoubtedly one of the best colors to use in public spaces as it gives the room a relaxing modern appeal and a pleasant environment. Monochromatic living rooms with bolder or darker colors can feel a touch too tacky and you will get pretty bored with that overwhelming visual very quickly. Then you end up with a room that is ungainly, boring and just an eye-sore that needs a complete makeover. In case of the all-white living room, adding an additional layer of color down the line is both easy and cost-effective.
