There have been plenty of occasions when we have talked about the virtues of the couch in orange and a plush sofa in burnt orange feels even more hip. The gorgeous green sofa is admittedly not for everyone and finds space in eclectic and modern settings while the breezy blue couch adapts to pretty much any style you have going.

We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of décor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
A wooden accent wall does not always have to be one of the pre-existing walls in the living room. You can create your own wall of wood with a striking room divider like the one below. Delineating space in an open plan living without blocking the line of sight or even the flow of light, this elegant divider acts as an accent wall that is easy on the eyes and space-savvy as well!
The feeling that beige captures so well is one of comfort and security that we all yearn for within our homes. Emphasise that feeling by adding some wooden pieces to your neutral living room. A relaxing atmosphere by the fireplace calls for a color palette that knows how to channel tranquility. You could hardly find a better choice than beige. There are plenty of beige hues to play with, from soft cream to dark sand. You can easily layer them within one room and awaken the traditional ambiance. Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room’s incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames.
If you have noticed it already, then wooden décor is on a grand comeback in recent months. It does not matter if your living room has a contemporary vibe or a cozy rustic appeal; décor in wood seems to find space in almost every living room these days. It is the silhouette of the décor that determines its style and an all-wood entertainment center with a cool TV stand, additional wooden cabinets and wall-mounted floating shelves can feel as much at home in a modern living room as it does in one with traditional flair. Just browse through the classic and yet timeless choices from the likes of ercol or Hartmann and you will not be disappointed.
We always advice our readers to think beyond the confines of the square footage of their home and to harness all that additional space which those walls have to offer. Wall-mounted décor not only frees up precious foot space, but these cool floating cabinets, shelves and modular units also give the living room a more cheerful, breezy ambiance. They undoubtedly cut back on visual clutter and you can even use them to introduce new patterns, textures and sculptural features. Just remember though that you might not want to go berserk with wall-mounted modular units in smaller living rooms as they can easily seem overbearing when done wrong.
A really great combination for the living room is a subtle shade of mint paired with bold golden elements. It makes the room look radiant but peaceful at the same time! For a living room decorated with much consistency, choose your decor pieces (such as cushions) wisely. Have them match your mint walls to create a similar color palette all throughout the room. Mint isn’t scared of bold and vibrant colors. It actually makes them even more outstanding and simultaneously softens the feeling of contrast better than a plain white wall! Here’s another great example of how mint can soften the contrast between colorful and neutral: the sofa pictured is plain white, set on the vibrant red rug, decorated with colorful pillows, but as your eyes catch the minty wall, the feeling of overwhelming contrast instantly disappears.
A comfortable sofa is undoubtedly the most essential piece of any living room and often ends up defining the style and the decorating scheme of the space. With open plan living growing in popularity, this extends to the style of the kitchen, dining area and the social zone as well. With that in mind, it is essential that you choose a couch that is comfortable, elegant, adapts with changing trends and also acts as the perfect focal point in an open living space. While we have nothing against bolder, more colorful sofas and sectionals, today we delve into a world that is predominantly black and white!
