The wooden end table with its rustic finish feels as much at home in modern homes as it does in traditional and farmhouse settings. Combine raw wood with glass and you have an even more elegant and exceptional side table that draws instant attention. Those looking for a bit more ‘luxury’ can opt for a side table with marble top and slim metallic base.
A navy blue ottoman within a beige living room will be an incredible centerpiece that will only emphasize the surrounding cream interior!
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.
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.
With summer here most of our days are spent on the pool deck, patio, or any other outdoor space that we can find. It is the time to shed layers of extra clothing and to embrace the warmth out there; a luxury for people in some parts of the world that is fleeting. Yet, there are ways in which you can still enjoy that fuzzy, warm feeling each morning (or even afternoon) all year long by turning towards the sunroom. Often, homeowners feel that a dedicated sunroom needs lot of space and that is definitely not always true. Everything from a long corridor with glass walls to a corner in the living room can be easily turned into your very own ‘sunroom’.
Bold, striking and sophisticated black makes a big impact in a room even when used sparingly. Often relegated to window and door frames, black can be used in more ways than one in the modern living room as well. Making an instant impact even while blending in with the rest of the room, a black coffee table is one such stylish and dare we say, trendy option. Moving away from the transparent beauty of glass and acrylic coffee tables and the warmth of those in wood, a black coffee table seems inherently more contemporary and far more polished in appeal.
