Calandre Guillou Living Room June 07, 2017 04:09:28
When working with the small living room, do not completely shy away from color, as it turns the interior into a generic and boring setting. Scandinavian style lets you add color in the form of simple accents, and you can even add a mirror or two to further enhance the appeal of the tiny room. A plush rug, cool side table, stylish floor lamp and a cozy couch complete this elegant look.
There are plenty of different ways to add bright color to the modern living room. The most popular choice is undoubtedly the accent wall, with almost 70 percent of homeowners turning to paint to give their living space a quick makeover. But there are plenty of other things you can do to alter the ambiance of the living room and ensure that it stands out from the crowd. Colorful décor is once again back in fashion, and the days of the plain white and dull beige couch are long gone. For those who love neutrals, it is a plush sofa in gray that is the new ‘go to’ living room décor item. But those with a more vibrant outlook invite home a lot more color!
Even more popular than the sofa in lighter hues of yellow is the couch in light blue. For many, this is the perfect couch that balances excitement and brightness with an ability to blend in with a wide range of color schemes and styles. If you are buying a sofa in bright cobalt blue, velvety navy blue or dashing indigo, there are two distinct routes you can take with the style of the living area. Those in love with a traditional-style interior can consider styles like Victorian by combining the sofa with accents of gold. But if you still want a modern living room, then coastal, beach, Scandinavian, eclectic and even contemporary styles can easily accommodate the beautiful blue sofa.
Adding color to the living room is not about going overboard with just one hue. Colorful living rooms are quite different from vibrant bedrooms or vivacious kitchens that seem inherently more receptive to the greater infusion of bold hues. Sometimes it is best to just add pops of bright color and to repeat it carefully throughout the room to find that balance between desired style, upbeat ambiance and a backdrop that is still versatile and adaptable. It is time to break the shackles of convention with color!
A gorgeous wooden accent wall can offer much more than just textural contrast in a contemporary interior dominated by polished finishes. A fabulous curved accent wall like the one below brings with it loads of intrigue and a touch of 3D beauty that brings the interior alive. The wavy strips of wood that hold both the television and the shelves around it seem like a work of modern art as they elevate the style quotient of the dashing apartment in Columbia.
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.
