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!
The white and blue colors of this living room channel the appeal of the seaside, with the mesmerizing blue artwork serving as a centerpiece of the room, only rivaled by the woven coffee table. Woven furniture is the perfect choice when decorating the room in coastal decor. It embodies the comfort and almost holiday-like feeling that can only be felt at the beach while sipping cocktails! This open and bright living room looks free and airy! If you leave all the windows open and let the wind in it might feel like you are standing on a windy beach, surrounded by the sea, whose color is so beautifully represented by the blue furniture and pillows! While classical coastal living rooms are normally more subtle and serene, you can absolutely include bold elements – such as bright orange chairs – to challenge the traditional look and bring something modern to the table.
A gorgeous wooden accent wall can offer much more than just textural contrast in a contemporary interior dominated by polished finishes. A fabulous curved accent wall like the one below brings with it loads of intrigue and a touch of 3D beauty that brings the interior alive. The wavy strips of wood that hold both the television and the shelves around it seem like a work of modern art as they elevate the style quotient of the dashing apartment in Columbia.

Next we look a living area designed by Kelly Wearstler. One feature that grasps our eye: wall lights salvaged from a Roman cinema (currently hanging on either side of the fireplace). It’s items like these that give a place true character!

‘Natalie Epstein Design’ makes this sunken living room. Your existing living room can be converted into such a step-down one when you have to remove the partition walls separating kitchen, living, dining, and family rooms and to create one big, open space during complete remodel of your home. Here, the area is separated from kitchen with open glass ledges and cabinets, which are turned into deck area.

Pillow covers are a cool way to add a chevron pattern to the living space without having to commit to a more permanent or expensive addition. They are fun, can be swapped out when you are in the mood for solid colors and can be used along with other accent pillows to enhance the color scheme of the room.

Playing with the Undertones

Decorating with gray and yellow doesn't mean that you need to stick to just these two colors alone. Often, white is a natural part of the living room and combines well with the color duo, but you'll be surprised to see how well black operates with gray and yellow. Use decor in bold black to define the space visually plus give it a sense of excitement. Since black operates brilliantly with both yellow and gray individually, you'll have no worry in blending the three in a sensible fashion. But assure that the tone of gray employed is light and pleasant when the living room is filled with both black and yellow accents to maintain a visual balance.
