Big full-size windows will allow the sunlight to illuminate your living room and make every day feel like the peak of summertime, even if you don’t have a view of the ocean. The vast and spacious room is a comfortable and welcoming space for the entire family to relax in!
Yes, decor in wood is big in 2017 and this trend of gravitating towards natural materials is set to continue in the years to come. But a fabulous wood coffee table or even a live-edge coffee table might not fit into the decorating scheme of your living space. Those looking to still bring in textural contrast can turn to acrylic coffee tables or those with a polished marble top and a wiry, metallic base. It is all about the space available, colors that surround the coffee table and the style of the room itself.
A monochromatic living room is essentially a space where you use just one color even if you bring in its varying shades, hues and tints. Of course, there is always a darker element in the room and at times you can use colorful accents to give the monochromatic space your own personal twist! Today, it is the turn of the most popular of all monochromatic living spaces those in white to spend some time under the spotlight. Sure, there are a few lighter tones of gray thrown in amidst all the whit; but that only adds to the overall visual appeal.
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.
It would barely come as a surprise to anyone following early trends of 2017 that natural design elements are currently a hit among homeowners and designers alike. Wood is the undoubted leader of this pack with modern homes embracing the warmth and organic elegance of the material at its beautiful best. Be it ingenious decor, stylish accessories or even exceptional backdrops, wood is pretty much everywhere you look around! Now is definitely a great time to get in on the ‘woodsy wave’ and you can do it without completely revamping your existing living room.
The rustic lamp and coffee table channel the casual and carefree spirit of the sandy beach, while the mint walls represent the fluidness of the ocean water. This living room really radiates a steady coastal atmosphere!
