Even though it is the couch in gray that seems to be the most popular these days, a fabulous sofa in black, white or even a blend of both the colors is a timeless choice that never fails. The beautiful sofas have remained as relevant a century ago as they do today! The style, materials used and finishing might have changed, but the allure of black and white has remained constant. Since most of us cannot afford to change the living room couch (or have the energy for it) with changing color trends, these seemingly neutral additions are a safe choice. So, why wait!
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.
Mint interior is a hit among interior lovers and we can see why that is! It’s fresh and soft, offers a great alternative for white decor elements. Its pastel hues retain certain minimalist look but the shade of green undoubtedly makes the room feel alive and energetic.

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.
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 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.
While most people gladly embrace white while shaping the backdrop of the living room, kitchen, bedroom or dining space, white décor is an entirely different proposition. Speaking for a strictly practical perspective, they are pretty difficult to maintain over a period of time. In a living room that sees plenty of traffic along with kids and pets constantly moving around, the white sofa is definitely a poor choice. But for those who do not have to deal with endless rush and little ones jumping around on the couch, the white sofa can bring sophistication and elegance to the living room.

We always love a collection of sofas in vivaciously different hues while talking about colorful couches and this section offers precisely that! Ravishing red seems a touch risky as a choice for your sofa, but get it right and you have a sophisticated, modern living room full of flair. The red sofa works well with white when it has a comfy, tufted design and blends in with hints of black to deliver a masculine vibe when draped in leather. It is the choice between the different materials that makes as much of an impact as the color itself.
The sofa is much more than just another piece of furniture in your home. It sets the tone for the rest of your interior both in terms of style, décor choices and the general theme and color scheme that you use. If you happen to have an open plan living, then your sofa choice becomes even more crucial. We understand that many of our readers are not really interested in changing such a pivotal piece of the home decorating jigsaw all too often and that is why many stay away from a colorful couch. Instead a sofa in black and white or even gray is the preferred choice. But 2016 and the first half of 2017 seem to disagree with this!
