What is a better way to embrace rustic natural charm than by bringing home wood, you ask? Well, how about finding some space for reclaimed wood in your home! Reclaimed wood adds another layer of richness to the interior when compared to newer wood surfaces and you can also find quality wood in old, discarded pieces if you know what you are looking for. An accent wall comprising of reclaimed wood planks also can create an eclectic or rustic backdrop that is perfect for living rooms that need a shabby chic, industrial or farmhouse twist to their monotonous modern personality.
They say that all trends tend to eventually fade away. But that is not always the truth, and in the case of decorating with bookshelves, you can rest assured that you are picking an option that is as timeless as it is trendy. It is easy to decorate with bookshelves, and they are much more than just aesthetic additions, as they also showcase your love for books, decorative art pieces and a whole lot more! Bookshelves need not always be filled with books. From stylish ceramics and fancy china in the dining room to indoor plants that create a wall of greenery, contemporary bookshelves can offer much more than just a space to stack your vast book collection.
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 rom. 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!
We love minimal end tables that seem to slot in even into the tiniest of spaces with ease! When you need just a bit of room for your champagne glass, smartphone and not much else, then these ultra-sleek and refined end tables are absolutely perfect. Bloomingville give their round and slim end tables a Nordic finish while the Twin Occasional Tables from Cor seem like they belong on a sci-fi movie set. Be it is the uber-minimal end table from Jori or innovative side tables from Hulsta, each of these trendy tables is a masterpiece in itself.
A colorful living room does not mean one drenched in shades of yellow, red or blue that seem audacious and eclectic. Depending on both the style you pick and the size of the room, the use of color can be carefully tempered to achieve the desired ambiance. Shabby chic or feminine living rooms benefit from décor in pastel hues that vary from light pinks to charming violets. Darker shades of gray and blue in more sober tints also promise to add color without drastically altering the neutral color palette of the living room. It is all about balance and panache!
