Last week we talked about the revival of wallpaper, and one of the biggest reasons for this is the use of neutral hues and understated patterns by designers. Modern wallpapers like the Woods add pattern to the room without disturbing the existing color scheme. Grasscloth in neutral colors is similar in its effect and adds 'understated texture' without altering the color palette of the room. Be it trendy gray or simple beige, grass cloth brings excitement to the neutral background while firmly keeping away any color. This is arguably the biggest reason why both designers and homeowners are starting to fall in love with it.
A smart side table or end table is a space-savvy choice that is as much about aesthetics as it is about practicality. While there are endless choices around, we have today the 20 best and latest side and end tables out there that pack a big punch despite their small size. Delve in and find out which one works best in your own living room. Yes, an end table allows you to place you put down your favorite page thriller, your smartphone and that drink you are sipping next as you relax in your comfy sofa. But there is much more to picking the right end table than just size. You can choose an end table that either blends in with the color scheme and style of your living room or feels like an entirely oblique addition that ushers in contrast and curiosity. A smart end table with golden glint is a great choice for contemporary living rooms which need some sparkle and metallic zest.
The sculptural fireplace below is a stunner! Also of interest in this space: a textured rug and a tall plant in a container that appears to be part planter and part basket. If you have a fireplace, why not make it the focal point of your space? Surrounding it with inviting seating is one way to go, especially if you add extra pillows and throws for the chilly months ahead. In addition to the gorgeous marble fireplace, the room below sports a backless sofa, a sectional sofa, and a coffee table that doubles as an ottoman.
Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living room. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition. Be it modern industrial, shabby chic, modern eclectic or farmhouse; irrespective of the style of your living room, a smart wooden accent wall fits in snugly. The finish, type of wood, texture and hue might have to vary depending on the subtle changes in the living room. But an accent wall in wood is a versatile addition that is bot neutral and dramatic at the same time. It can double as a relaxing backdrop and a beautiful focal point – doing all of this without ever trying too hard. Maybe this is precisely why it is the cool new trend that everyone is in love with.
You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse. A navy blue ottoman within a beige living room will be an incredible centerpiece that will only emphasize the surrounding cream interior.
