A living room accent wall in wood is a great way to bring in both visual and textural contrast without altering the existing style, color scheme or theme of the space in a drastic fashion. An accent wall addition also demands little work when compared to a complete living room remodel and you have a captivating focal point for your refreshing interior. Check out these 10 fabulous ideas before you start planning for a wood accent wall.
Why waste all that vertical space on offer in your living or dining room by choosing bookshelves that barely stand a few feet tall? Modern masterpieces like the one below ensure that you never have to again worry about finding space for the new bestseller at your home! These gigantic bookshelves also create a stunning backdrop in the living room and generally seem most at home in loft-style residences and industrial apartments. Throw in a library ladder or even a mezzanine-style, metallic walkway, and you have a home library / living room that would be the envy of every bibliophile.
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.
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.
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!
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.
