Calandre Guillou Living Room June 08, 2017 02:12:45
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!
Maybe you are wondering, can beige stand out at all? Normally you wouldn’t really opt for beige if you are looking for a centerpiece, but you can pair your cream furniture with a bright white wall and watch with amusement how quickly the furniture goes from ordinary to eye-catching!
What is a better way to embrace rustic natural charm than by bringing home wood, you ask? Well, how about finding some space for reclaimed wood in your home! Reclaimed wood adds another layer of richness to the interior when compared to newer wood surfaces and you can also find quality wood in old, discarded pieces if you know what you are looking for. An accent wall comprising of reclaimed wood planks also can create an eclectic or rustic backdrop that is perfect for living rooms that need a shabby chic, industrial or farmhouse twist to their monotonous modern personality.
A wooden coffee table blends in with darker shades of beige in this beautiful living room with a very pure and authentic style, brought to life by the incredibly calming color palette. Pair your cream furniture with gray walls and create a living room with a diverse neutral interior that proves fair colors can easily make the room feel full of life!
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!
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.
