In our quest for the right living room color and the perfect patterns to bring it alive, we often ignore another very important facet of interior design that can play a huge role in shaping a perfect home. Texture is as important as color in creating a beautifully balanced and exquisite living room. In fact, you can use just a couple of simple neutral shades, embrace a tone-on-tone approach and use just texture to design a dashing room! While we regularly turn to concrete, wood and creative furnishings to add texture to the room, grass cloth is another great choice.
Who said that you can't have an elaborate living area in the attic, complete with an entertainment unit and even a cozy fireplace? The television becomes the focal point of this attic living space, along with the sleek, contemporary fireplace. Skylights usher in natural ventilation, while the plush rug and the seating options bring in chic textural contrast. It is not just the modern homes that can put the attic to use. In fact, old structures that have been ingeniously renovated can play host to even more enchanting attic living rooms. This classic barn was transformed into a gorgeous home while keeping some of the features like the wooden trusses and the stone walls intact. Using these elements to its advantage, this attic space creates a cozy retreat right at home.

For those who are unfamiliar with this diverse wall covering, grass cloth is woven from slender strips of natural fiber that generally varies from jute to hemp and even silk. Often, the fiber that is used to create the grass cloth will determine its price and the look that it brings to the living room. With consumers gravitating towards sustainable and nature-friendly products in the last few years, grass cloth has made a comeback of sorts. Add to it the revitalized popularity of wallpaper and wall coverings, and it definitely is part of the current trend to embrace texture and pattern for visual contrast.
A minimalist living room will thrive with a neutral color palette. If you’re going for a neat and simplistic look, you won’t need more than a select few decor pieces on the transparent coffee table. One of the greatest things about a beige living room is how well it plays with the daylight. It doesn't reflect it as much as a white room would and it appears much more cozy while still remaining very bright.
