A modular sofa need not always be used to usher in bold color. You can still go down the tried and tested neutral route and add a couch in light bluish-gray, pastel pink or just plain brown while embracing the adaptability. Here, it is the functional aspect of the modular couch that becomes the protagonist while its aesthetics feel no different from a regular sofa in white or gray.
When working with the constraints of a monochromatic room, textural contrast becomes your best pal! Instead of adding greater number of contrasting shades of white, turn to different materials and diverse finishes to create visual interest in the room. Wooden decor, accessories and accent walls usher in warmth while concrete walls and flooring provide a steely, more stoic presence. Exposed brick walls might bring a hint of red or orang-y tinge to your all-white living room, but they take nothing away from its gorgeous monochromatic finish.
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!
A living room accent wall in wood is a great way to bring in both visual and textural contrast without altering the existing style, color scheme or theme of the space in a drastic fashion. An accent wall addition also demands little work when compared to a complete living room remodel and you have a captivating focal point for your refreshing interior.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last two years, you would be no stranger to the geometric decor trend. Geo decor has found its way into every room of the house with homeowners replacing traditional round mirrors with those featuring hexagonal frames, the simple lighting fixture with wiry, geometric pendants and the common square or rectangular coffee table with something a lot quirkier. In a living room dominated by simple, straight lines and plenty of monotony, a hexagonal coffee table or one with an abstract, polygon outline can make a huge difference indeed.
For a living room decorated with much consistency, choose your decor pieces (such as cushions) wisely. Have them match your mint walls to create a similar color palette all throughout the room.
