Calandre Guillou Living Room June 06, 2017 04:15:48
A wooden accent wall does not always have to be one of the pre-existing walls in the living room. You can create your own wall of wood with a striking room divider like the one below. Delineating space in an open plan living without blocking the line of sight or even the flow of light, this elegant divider acts as an accent wall that is easy on the eyes and space-savvy as well!
A living room that interacts with the kitchen and dining room in an open plan space has almost become the norm in recent times. It is barely a surprise then that most modern designers are responding to this hot trend with living room compositions that can adapt and become one with their surroundings. Epitomizing this trend and reinventing it with sculptural elegance and inherent minimalism is the fabulous Flux Swing series from Scavolini. Crafted by Giugiaro Design, each of these living room arrangements offers something unique and exceptional while showcasing the immense potential of this eye-catching lineup.
Buying a sofa is a hard decision at the best of times. The safe choice is often to purchase one in a neutral hue that will adapt to the changing color scheme of the living room over time. The sofa in gray, beige or white allows you to alter the accent hues of the living space far more easily as well. But go a bit bold this fall and think about a brightly colored red sofa, a décor addition that can instantly turn heads and become the showstopper of the space it adorns. The red couch is great for eclectic, Asian and even Scandinavian-style living rooms where both the style and the backdrop allow it to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the 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.
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.
A colorful living room does not mean one drenched in shades of yellow, red or blue that seem audacious and eclectic. Depending on both the style you pick and the size of the room, the use of color can be carefully tempered to achieve the desired ambiance. Shabby chic or feminine living rooms benefit from décor in pastel hues that vary from light pinks to charming violets. Darker shades of gray and blue in more sober tints also promise to add color without drastically altering the neutral color palette of the living room. It is all about balance and panache!
