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.
You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse.
Whether you wish to combine the black coffee table with another smaller side table or are thinking of ways in which to decorate it, it is important to find hues that blend in beautifully with black. Those searching for the ‘wow factor’ can opt for bolder choices like orange and red, giving the coffee table a vibrant and spunky look. Metallics also combine well with black while accessories in white accentuate the black and white color scheme of your living room. It is all about what works best with the specific style and ambiance set in your own living space.
Much like the colorful couch, sectionals were considered as ‘irrelevant dinosaurs’ of a different era during the 90s. And just like bright and brilliant sofas, the convenient and adaptable sectional has made a grand comeback in the last few years. Today’s sectionals are all about maximizing space, utilizing the living room corner, creating an organized living room and setting the tone for an ergonomic interior. Providing ample sitting room and also bringing modular ease, sectionals have become a staple of sorts in most urban apartments. Even in the expansive living areas, a colorful sectional can delineate space without seeming out of place.
We always love a collection of sofas in vivaciously different hues while talking about colorful couches and this section offers precisely that! Ravishing red seems a touch risky as a choice for your sofa, but get it right and you have a sophisticated, modern living room full of flair. The red sofa works well with white when it has a comfy, tufted design and blends in with hints of black to deliver a masculine vibe when draped in leather. It is the choice between the different materials that makes as much of an impact as the color itself.
Creating the perfect living room is as much about the aesthetics as it is about ergonomics and in contemporary homes with an open plan living, it is this curated space that sets the tone for your entire interior. Even though it is the couch plays a pivotal role in shaping the living style, theme and overall ambiance, a smart coffee table that complements your sofa and is the protagonist among the supporting cast! A striking coffee table can alter the appeal of a living room with ease and a simple switch in the coffee table can give the entire area a completely different visual appeal.
