Much like the colorful couch, sectionals were considered as ’irrelevant dinosaurs’ of a different era during the 90s. And just like bright and brilliant sofas, the convenient and adaptable sectional has made a grand comeback in the last few years. Today’s sectionals are all about maximizing space, utilizing the living room corner, creating an organized living room and setting the tone for an ergonomic interior. Providing ample sitting room and also bringing modular ease, sectionals have become a staple of sorts in most urban apartments. Even in the expansive living areas, a colorful sectional can delineate space without seeming out of place.
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!
Blue for the living room couch is no longer viewed as a daring decorating choice. In fact, bluish-gray contemporary sofas are popular among the most popular around. But those craving for snazzier and more dazzling shades of blue might want to think twice before they bring home a sofa in cobalt or peacock blue! It is not so much about whether they look good on the catalog page as it is about how much you really like the particular shade and tint of blue. If it is just a passing fascination, then you might have to splurge on a brand new sofa just a few seasons down the line!
The idea of a living room that presents a picture of ’neutrality’ and fits in easily with changing trends and seasons is a concept that has become the accepted norm of sorts. This has discouraged many homeowners from trying out new, more refreshing living room décor options that are far more colorful and striking. Sometimes it is the fear of spending a fortune on that new, brightly colored sofa only to find out that it feels out of place a few months down the line that stops you from making a bolder choice. On other occasions we believe that the living room must be devoid of dazzling color to ensure your guests are not overawed by it all.
While blue sofas lead the pack when it comes to colorful couches and red come sin second, the likes of yellow, green and orange are not all that far behind either. Yellow sofas look best in black and white, monochromatic and sun-kissed interiors where the cheerful couch stands out visually. Green is a rare choice and it is best to repeat the color in the living room to create more coherent look. Orange is a spunky alternative and makes an instant impact. Do not believe us? Then just recollect the gang of Friends hanging out in central Perk and you will realize that it is the big orange sofa that springs to mind instantly!
