Space-savvy living room storage options come in a wide range of styles and the one you choose should not just be about aesthetics alone. While floating, open shelves look simply stunning in all those catalog images and at the furniture store, it can all get pretty messy and fast, if you are not really the ‘organized’ type. Those having to deal with constant chores, busy days and kids might be better off with closed cabinets that conceal more than they reveal. And if you are still in doubt, then shop for storage units that also offer a bit of display space to get the best of both worlds!
Today we take a look at a completely different aspect of sunroom design, which moves away from style and focuses on a love for all things green. Indoor plants are far easier to maintain than you think and with air plants currently a part of hot decorating trends, it makes plenty of sense to give your sunroom a green upgrade. From orchids and passion flower to the resilient ZZ plant and awesome succulents, there is plenty of variety to choose from. Then there is the matter of countless displays you can try out.
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!
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!
The beautiful contrast between beige and mint is absolutely breathtaking and instantly makes us daydream of the sandy beach mixed with turquoise sea!
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.
Even mint can be vibrant if you want it to! Here’s a beautiful example of a vivid living room that is dressed up in shades of mint, all from the walls to the furniture. We also love the addition of neutral sofas, to create some balance!
Modular decor makes your life a whole lot easier and with sectionals, you have a chance to expand the living room seating with growing needs over time. Even the tiniest living rooms seem a lot more spacious when you replace the couch at the heart of the room with a sectional that is neatly tucked away in the corner. With many modern sectionals giving you an option to redecorate the room by simply moving the individual pieces of the larger sofa, it is ultra-easy to fashion a versatile living space.
The beach has a magical atmosphere that instantly relaxes us and makes us happy. Maybe it’s the wind, maybe it’s the sun or the smell of the sea … if only we could bring these elements into our home! The next best thing to actually being at the beach, soaking it all in, is turning your living space into a coastal fairytale! If you are yearning for the beach, these coastal living rooms will offer some much-needed inspiration!
The triangular coffee table with curved edges is currently topping the trends chart when it comes to chic living room decor. Combing minimalist aesthetics with beautifully rounded edges, there is something undeniably timeless and yet contemporary about this dashing coffee table. While a coffee table in black seems to be the preferred choice in almost every sophisticated living room across the world, opting for one in white does give the room a more vibrant and cheerful aura. And if all else fails then you can bring in the iconic Elliptical coffee table in its many glorious forms that was originally dreamt up by Charles Eames.
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.

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.
