A minimalist living room will thrive with a neutral color palette. If you’re going for a neat and simplistic look, you won’t need more than a select few decor pieces on the transparent coffee table!
There is nothing revolutionary about black and white as a color combination. Yet, somethings are dubbed ‘classic’ for a reason! A black and white couch instantly holds your attention even while making sure that the color scheme of the living room is left completely undisturbed. The more intricate the pattern more is the visual impact! The black and white couch can bring patterns that range from simple dots and stripes to chevron outlines and wavy forms. As seasons change and color trends come and go, you can simply switch out accent pillows, accessories and smaller decor pieces around this couch to usher in trendy panache!
A sofa in neutral hues that vary between pristine white to light browns and bluish-grays are generally the norm in most living rooms… that is, till just a few years ago! Today’s living rooms are going down a more exciting path with revitalized trends from ravishing 80s and nostalgic 70s making a grand comeback. A colorful and striking sofa is definitely a part of this exuberant new look.
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.
Homeowners willing to experiment with the color scheme of their living space on a regular basis would surely benefit from modular units which let you redecorate without much fuss. Apart from moving around individual sofa units to fashion a different setup in the living room, you can move out the one or two brightly colored units of the sofa and bring in an entirely new accent hue. The older pieces can easily become a part of the family room, study, guest room or even the playroom and nothing is ever a waste!
Yes, decor in wood is big in 2017 and this trend of gravitating towards natural materials is set to continue in the years to come. But a fabulous wood coffee table or even a live-edge coffee table might not fit into the decorating scheme of your living space. Those looking to still bring in textural contrast can turn to acrylic coffee tables or those with a polished marble top and a wiry, metallic base. It is all about the space available, colors that surround the coffee table and the style of the room itself.
