Looking beyond functionality and focusing on aesthetics, we start off our journey by delving into a world of sofas with a distinct red hue. The many shades of red and the finish of the sofa allow the bold and conspicuous red couch to be a part of many different living rooms. A dashing sofa in wine red and clad in leather looks as much at home in modern and eclectic living rooms as it does in traditional living spaces. Modern couches in lither tones of red, pastel pink and even burnt orange are increasingly becoming part of smart homes where neutral backdrops demand a splash of uplifting brightness.
Contrast is still a major part of the monochromatic living space and adding a hint of black here and there to the white living space helps immensely. This can come in the form of accent pillows with black piping, dark, metallic window frames or even a simple striped rug in black and white. Remember though that the line between a monochromatic living room drenched in white and one that veers towards a minimal, black and white color palette can be pretty slim at times! Yet, make sure there is a contrasting darker element in it all somewhere to anchor the room.
For decades now television has held more than just its viewers captive. In living rooms across the world, it is the TV that is the focal point around which the rest of the room revolves. Sure, some of us might have removed it from the living space and relegated it to the media room. But for many homeowners, the giant television in the living room is an absolute must! With that in mind, we have uncovered 25 stylish, versatile and elegant living room TV units that range from the simple to those that offer everything your high-end entertainment hub needs.
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!
Blue for the living room couch is no longer viewed as a daring decorating choice. In fact, bluish-gray contemporary sofas are popular among the most popular around. But those craving for snazzier and more dazzling shades of blue might want to think twice before they bring home a sofa in cobalt or peacock blue! It is not so much about whether they look good on the catalog page as it is about how much you really like the particular shade and tint of blue. If it is just a passing fascination, then you might have to splurge on a brand new sofa just a few seasons down the line!
The round end table is undoubtedly the most popular among its clan. And it is easy to understand why as the circular table top offers geometric contrast in modern living rooms, bedrooms and home offices where clean straight lines dominate the setting. A small, round end table next to a relaxing lounger can provide the perfect refuge for a bibliophile when coupled with a snazzy floor lamp. Another hip trend is to combine two or three of these small side tables to create a coffee table that is unique and can multi-task.
