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.
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!
Adding a gorgeous couch in scarlet or a fabulous sofa in refreshing yellow is definitely not for everyone. For starters, one needs to absolutely love the color to be able to live with it. If it is a passing fling with a bold hue, then you will find yourself redecorating in absolutely no time! But if you truly love brighter shades of red, green, blue or yellow, then do not shy away from bringing in a sectional or couch in a hue of your fancy. A combination of black and red in the living room can instantly turn heads, while living room décor in stunning yellow is ideal for the sun-kissed interior.
The sea has the most magnificent coloring. It can be dark blue or light turqoise, all depending on its depth and the way the light hits the water at any given moment. White often comes into the mix when the waves start foaming and the whole scenery is absolutely captivating. Bring these colors into your interior to fully capture the magic of the ocean!
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.
But the truth is far from this beige- and gray-colored world, and homeowners are increasingly turning towards colorful living rooms to give their home a sense of uniqueness and individuality. Today, we take a look at the 16 fabulous ideas that include the trendiest living room décor finds of 2016, which combine color with class and style with pizzazz. Time to up the style quotient of your living room!
