This open and breezy room is so delightful and inviting! The natural lighting is a strong attribute that marvelously lights up the colorful furniture and corresponding plants!
Here’s another great example of how mint can soften the contrast between colorful and neutral: the sofa pictured is plain white, set on the vibrant red rug, decorated with colorful pillows, but as your eyes catch the minty wall, the feeling of overwhelming contrast instantly disappears.
Can’t resist when it comes to adding bright color to the living space? There are still ways in which you can do precisely that even as you accentuate the visual impact of your chosen monochromatic color scheme. A few cleverly placed books, flowers, an odd floor lamp in black and gold, a couple of dashing club chairs in red or purple or even a simple, colorful mirror frame the living room presents you with an endless array of ways in which you can add color. Once again, it is important to remember that less is more and the idea here should be to create a ‘wow factor’ without actually taking away from the monochromatic look.
A living room with dark beige walls and a creamy sofa has all the attributes of a modern-day sanctuary that feels safe, soft and traditional.
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!
Minute details make a big difference to the larger picture and it is ultimately the smaller design and decorating choices that define the style of your home. It is the couch, coffee table and the TV unit that might largely set the mood in your living room, but you still need a cool end table or side table to truly complete the setting. Despite their seemingly modest presence, end tables make your life a whole lot easier even while adding another unique dimension to the living space. Often overlooked, these versatile additions also find a place beyond just the corner next to the couch!
