Moving away from the simple square and rectangles, it seems it is the circular and elliptical coffee table that is the more popular option in contemporary homes. This holds true in the case of the black coffee table as well with this trendy choice bringing in both visual and geometric contrast to a space dominated by neutral colors and straight lines. The hexagonal coffee table in black is another chic option while those really willing to experiment can bring home a masterpiece that is both abstract and sculptural in its silhouette. Beyond the form, it is the curated finish of the coffee table that gives it its contemporary 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.
Even though it is the couch in gray that seems to be the most popular these days, a fabulous sofa in black, white or even a blend of both the colors is a timeless choice that never fails. The beautiful sofas have remained as relevant a century ago as they do today! The style, materials used and finishing might have changed, but the allure of black and white has remained constant. Since most of us cannot afford to change the living room couch (or have the energy for it) with changing color trends, these seemingly neutral additions are a safe choice. So, why wait!
The Colors of the Sand
Water is not the only charming thing at the beach. A lot of the magic stems from the sand! It has a calming energy, filling us with inner peace to the point where we don’t care if we are totally covered in sand grains, we simply never want to leave the serene beige scenery! Your very own living room can carry so many sandy elements you will soon feel like every day can be beach day!
Candles and cushions are the elements that will enrich a coastal living room and make it feel more cozy and intimate kind of like a secluded beach.
