From the modern we move on to the world of traditional black coffee tables and while many might find the idea unappealing, they are definitely nothing to frown about. Combining the best of luxury Italian design with intricate craftsmanship and a dash of golden glint, these mesmerizing decor pieces would fit into even contemporary space when used right. Often, it is dark marble stone that acts as the table top surface and a metallic base that is filled with ornate design and clad in gold. If you love opulence and an air of timeless wonder, then these coffee tables are absolutely perfect indeed!
Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living rom. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition.
While blue sofas lead the pack when it comes to colorful couches and red come sin second, the likes of yellow, green and orange are not all that far behind either. Yellow sofas look best in black and white, monochromatic and sun-kissed interiors where the cheerful couch stands out visually. Green is a rare choice and it is best to repeat the color in the living room to create more coherent look. Orange is a spunky alternative and makes an instant impact. Do not believe us? Then just recollect the gang of Friends hanging out in central Perk and you will realize that it is the big orange sofa that springs to mind instantly!
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 sea has the most magnificent coloring. It can be dark blue or light turqoise, all depending on its depth and the way the light hits the water at any given moment. White often comes into the mix when the waves start foaming and the whole scenery is absolutely captivating. Bring these colors into your interior to fully capture the magic of the ocean!
Maybe you are wondering, can beige stand out at all? Normally you wouldn’t really opt for beige if you are looking for a centerpiece, but you can pair your cream furniture with a bright white wall and watch with amusement how quickly the furniture goes from ordinary to eye-catching!
