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!
We often talk about repeating a certain accent color or even a unique texture inside a room to give it a more coherent and curated look. But when it comes to live-edge décor, this is not an absolute must, and you can use a natural-edge coffee table as an exclusive, one-of-a-kind piece that adds something truly exceptional to the contemporary living area.
A beige living room is an ideal place for socializing, due to the softness and familiarity of the creamy interior. It feels very predictable, but in a good way! There are no hidden surprises in the room – what you see is what you get, which is a kind and warm space!
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.
Unlike the red, blue and yellow sofas, one in green is a rarity that most homeowners tend to stay away from. Part of the reason is the complicated nature of the color that does not allow you to experiment with too many styles and themes. Add to this the fact that a brightly colored green sofa forces you to keep the rest of the room as neutral as possible, and future changes in color schemes seem limited. But if you still absolutely love the hue, then by all means go for it! Inspirations below showcase how even the most dramatic green sofa feels at home in a curated contemporary living room.
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.
