Living Room / June 13, 2018 /
With beige walls, mostly-white furniture, and a white ceiling, this living room was clean and serene. By limiting color to the sofa, pillows, and a few key accessories, the room gets a wake-up call, while maintaining its serenity. While this is easy to do with almost any color combination, here, shiny gold, leafy green, and navy blue stripes give the room preppy flair. Another combination, such as ocean blue and sea glass green, could take the look beachy, or barn red, goldenrod, and taupe could go country.
One foolproof combo is a console table placed against the bare wall with a pair of benches tucked beneath it and a neat grid of frames hung above. Use occasional chairs. Another great use of surplus wall space is for housing a few extra chairs. A console table between a pair of chairs with a large mirror or artwork above always looks smart, and you can pull the chairs in closer when hosting a large group.
