Those seeking even more contrast can choose a coffee table that blends unusual form with warmth of wood or sparkle of metal to create a cool focal point. In most modern living rooms the large coffee table is being replaced by a collection of smaller coffee tables or even a trio of stylish side tables, which give a lot more design flexibility. This summer, try out this new look for a fresher and more vibrant living room.
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!
There have been plenty of occasions when we have talked about the virtues of the couch in orange and a plush sofa in burnt orange feels even more hip. The gorgeous green sofa is admittedly not for everyone and finds space in eclectic and modern settings while the breezy blue couch adapts to pretty much any style you have going.
If you don’t want many colors in your room and you’d rather keep the setting coherent and neutral, turn your living room into a calming space where every single element matches the color of the sand and so charms anyone who steps into it!
Space-savvy living room storage options come in a wide range of styles and the one you choose should not just be about aesthetics alone. While floating, open shelves look simply stunning in all those catalog images and at the furniture store, it can all get pretty messy and fast, if you are not really the ‘organized’ type. Those having to deal with constant chores, busy days and kids might be better off with closed cabinets that conceal more than they reveal. And if you are still in doubt, then shop for storage units that also offer a bit of display space to get the best of both worlds!
In the design world, having ‘more of the same’ generally does not work all too well as a decorating approach. This is truer in case of color. Filling up a room with the same color is considered both ungainly and bland. It is often the contrast between three or more colors that gives a room its uniqueness and personality. Yet, for those who are really set on using largely one color to shape their living room, there are still plenty of exciting options around! Monochromatic living rooms are once again trendy and as is the case in most other rooms, it is neutrals that hold sway here.
