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.
If the interior of your living room is leaning towards neutral, choose some wooden elements to balance the scale and bring in some warmth and coastal vibes!
A beige living room is an ideal place for socializing, due to the softness and familiarity of the creamy interior. It feels very predictable, but in a good way! There are no hidden surprises in the room what you see is what you get, which is a kind and warm space!
A wall gallery can be such a strong piece in your living room, one that easily reflects the coastal theme and leaves anyone speechless. You get a crucial element for coastal interior and the room gets brilliant wall decor! Win-win!

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.

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.
