Beige walls and corresponding furniture create an open, inviting space where everybody would be happy to lounge. Add the cherry on top with some striking blue decorative vases to bring in some color! You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse.
Beige definitely doesn’t mean boring – it simply means a delicious subtleness that can be greatly appreciated in a living room that doesn’t feel necessity to be over the top. For a more intricate atmosphere, pick a tone at the darker end of the beige spectrum, almost so similar to light brown that you can add some actual brown pieces to the mix and create a very soft, prestigious interior.
We did talk earlier about how the live-edge coffee table blends in with pretty much any style that you have going in the living room. But it is still important to understand exactly what works best in your living space depending on available space and the color palette. Live-edge tables in darker tones generally fit in better with modern interiors where the neutral backdrop gives them an opportunity to shine through. In rustic, farmhouse or traditional living rooms, it is best to pick a slab of wood that has already been used in the room to paint a more lucid picture. A glittering metallic base coupled with a wooden top is the way forward in industrial or even mid-century living rooms.
If you cannot find a live-edge coffee table that meets your decorating needs, it is best to think about custom solutions. Turn to your local craftsman and get creative with the coffee table design! All you need is a natural slab of timber that you are in love with, and there are times when you can even craft one in your own garage. Crafting your very own DIY live-edge coffee table is easier than it sounds, and you can also proudly showcase your improved DIY skills, as the bespoke table sits at the heart of your fabulous living room.
As alluded to earlier, white has always been a dominant color in Scandinavian living rooms. But the last few years have seen a surge in another neutral that is quickly replacing white and has even found a way to coexist with it. Gray is definitely a hip neutral hue that is simply refusing to die down as a hot trend. Now is the time to give your living room with Nordic inspiration a touch of gray by adding a cozy couch in the color or even creating an accent wall in light, smoky gray. It is generally the lighter shades of gray that work well in Scandinavian spaces, but you can pick a darker hue if you want to create a greater visual contrast.
Black and white backdrops with shades of gray work beautifully in a Scandinavian living room, and it is a look that seems to combine modern minimalism with urban classiness. But makes sure that black is used sparingly to just anchor the living area and highlight certain architectural features, as too much black can quickly alter the mood and the appeal of the interior.
