Living Room / June 17, 2018 /
Try this easy approach to living room color ideas: commit to two main hues dispersed evenly throughout the room. Here, bold black and shimmery gold accessories are placed symmetrically to create a visually stunning space. The stand-out gold frame against the painted wood paneling drive the eye toward the center and make the black and gold pair even more dynamic. Choose asymmetrical art featuring the same color scheme for an element of surprise.
Swap your coffee tables for oversized ottomans. Large seating arrangements can feel a bit empty if there is too much distance between the sofa and coffee table. Choosing a big upholstered ottoman instead of a traditional coffee table will close that gap and add softness at the same time. Round out a big seating plan with a pair of X-benches. Tucked in front of the fireplace or filling an empty spot across from a pair of armchairs, these versatile little seats can also fill in as footstools or side tables.
