Living Room / June 17, 2018 / .
Fabulous fabrics and continuous color give this room a global bazaar feel. Spice hues and jewel box hues, such as curry orange, sapphire, alexandrite, and emerald, add richness to the style. A nail head trim chair and a glitzy bar cart provide a youthful oomph, while the colors in the detailed oriental rug are repeated in the throw pillows and centerpiece items. To put a cherry on top of this perfect room, the ceiling is painted a dark navy blue to keep the white walls from looking too airy.
Create an intimate spot for two within a larger room. Do not forget to think about how you want to use the space. Especially with large living rooms that are well suited to entertaining large groups, it can be easy to overlook the fact that we are not always hosting parties! Try tucking a small card table against a bare wall along with a pair of elegant chairs. You can use this space for reading, chatting or even a cozy dinner for two.
In addition to flooring type, you can change up the style and color of your flooring to create different feels. A vivid geometric design is a great addition to a modernist space, while refinished hardwood floors can harken back to a historic homes past. You can use complementary hues between your floors and walls to create the overall color palette.
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.
