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!
Throw pillows, rugs, vases and lighting fixtures are the usual suspects when it comes to furniture that brings color to the Scandinavian living room. For those ready to experiment with bolder trends, mesmerizing wallpaper that breathes freshness and vitality into the room is a great alternative indeed. Make sure though that your wallpaper choice fits with the stripped-down style of the room and does not seem ornate or out of place.
Adding an element of natural wood to the sophisticated contemporary living room completely alters its vibe and creates a cozier and more inviting setting. Since most contemporary and modern living rooms are dominated by glass, stone and other glossy surfaces, the mere presence of wood in the form a live-edge coffee table makes a big difference. This impact is amplified, as the coffee table sits at the heart of the living room and is something you simply cannot miss!
While darker wood tones bring an air of urbane class to modern living rooms, live-edge coffee tables in lighter tones add a breezy, organic vibe that is simply unmatched. These gorgeous coffee tables can also be used in the light-filled family room and relaxing sunroom with ease, and coupled with a neutral color scheme and matching décor in natural fiber and wood, they look simply outstanding. Giving your serene living room a stylish focal point, the live-edge coffee table here anchors the space and gives it a trendy upgrade.
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.
A smart couch in yellow can offer that perfect balance between colorful zest and understated elegance in a living room that needs a bit of both. This is usually ushered in by sofas in shades like mellow yellow and light lemon, which seem both bright and neutral at the same time. Those seeking ‘sunnier’ options can consider sofas in shades like mango yellow, mustard, sunflower, honey and gold! The yellow sofa seems even more alluring in rooms with a predominantly white backdrop and gives the impression of a sun-kissed living space that is simply timeless.
