Living Room / June 27, 2018 /
White walls, couches, and a mantel let strategic pops of color go a long way to enliven the space. Hints of coral and lime green bring life to this living room while black accents help ground the mainly white space. A wood floor in a matte finish adds visual warmth underfoot. A fabulously bold patterned rug dresses up white walls and serves as the inspiration for this rooms color scheme. Although the rug and surrounding textiles contain different patterns, they feature the same colors and therefore complement each other. Choose furniture with solid fabrics within the color scheme to add stability and separate the patterns, like this blue chair and leather-top coffee table.
Add coziness with a screen. In a large, open space, you may want to create an area that feels more protected and intimate, decorative screens are your friend for this. Partially folded and placed behind your sofa, a screen will create the impression of a smaller room without stopping the flow of the room. Comfortably fill a large space with an L-shaped sectional. Large, modern spaces are especially suited to accommodate a great big L-shaped sofa. This piece screams comfort!
