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.
For a more intricate atmosphere, pick a tone at the darker end of the beige spectrum, almost so similar to light brown that you can add some actual brown pieces to the mix and create a very soft, prestigious interior.
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 you have noticed it already, then wooden decor is on a grand comeback in recent months. It does not matter if your living room has a contemporary vibe or a cozy rustic appeal; decor in wood seems to find space in almost every living room these days. It is the silhouette of the decor that determines its style and an all-wood entertainment center with a cool TV stand, additional wooden cabinets and wall-mounted floating shelves can feel as much at home in a modern living room as it does in one with traditional flair. Just browse through the classic and yet timeless choices from the likes of ercol or Hartmann and you will not be disappointed.
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.
When a living room is big on antique, luxurious decor it can quickly become its defining factor. If there’s a need to make some room for fresher, more current color tones as well, mint curtains are a fantastic choice!
