The sofa is much more than just another piece of furniture in your home. It sets the tone for the rest of your interior both in terms of style, decor choices and the general theme and color scheme that you use. If you happen to have an open plan living, then your sofa choice becomes even more crucial. We understand that many of our readers are not really interested in changing such a pivotal piece of the home decorating jigsaw all too often and that is why many stay away from a colorful couch. Instead a sofa in black and white or even gray is the preferred choice. But 2016 and the first half of 2017 seem to disagree with this!
What is a better way to embrace rustic natural charm than by bringing home wood, you ask? Well, how about finding some space for reclaimed wood in your home! Reclaimed wood adds another layer of richness to the interior when compared to newer wood surfaces and you can also find quality wood in old, discarded pieces if you know what you are looking for. An accent wall comprising of reclaimed wood planks also can create an eclectic or rustic backdrop that is perfect for living rooms that need a shabby chic, industrial or farmhouse twist to their monotonous modern personality.
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!
Home decor is like creating a mosaic where each small piece has big value. Your furniture doesn’t have to feel coastal at all, as long as you place in decor elements that send a clear message of your love of the sea. Andrew Howard has got some great ideas!
Sure, monochromatic living rooms need not be restricted to white alone. But white is undoubtedly one of the best colors to use in public spaces as it gives the room a relaxing modern appeal and a pleasant environment. Monochromatic living rooms with bolder or darker colors can feel a touch too tacky and you will get pretty bored with that overwhelming visual very quickly. Then you end up with a room that is ungainly, boring and just an eye-sore that needs a complete makeover. In case of the all-white living room, adding an additional layer of color down the line is both easy and cost-effective.
The right pot for your indoor plant not only allows it to grow to its full potential, but also adds to the style of the interior. Dark and polished pots are great for the contemporary, minimal and modern sunrooms while terracotta and ceramic pots fit into rustic, farmhouse and traditional sunrooms. Pots with more intricate pattern and bright design can enhance the charm of your Mediterranean sunroom while small, hanging containers and trendy planters with geo design can house your succulents and air plants.
