We end with an ultra-modern room that can`t help but channel a retro feel, thanks to wooden paneling. Plus, this space combines all three of today`s highlighted design features: texture, ample seating and plenty of warm tones. In case you're wondering, the fireplace backsplash is slate, the white trim is Meganite, and the wooden cabinetry is walnut. Did today's post help add some warmth to your fall day? Remember that even if your home doesn’t feature a fireplace, there are still plenty of ways to create a cozy feel.
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 room. 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.
In the world of contemporary design and decor, adaptability and versatility are the two key elements that always come up trumps. Sure, one still needs that perfect blend of form and function to create an unforgettable, inviting interior. But designers are increasingly moving away from traditional furnishings and turning toward flexible, modular units to get this job done.
You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse. A navy blue ottoman within a beige living room will be an incredible centerpiece that will only emphasize the surrounding cream interior.
A wooden accent wall does not always have to be one of the pre-existing walls in the living room. You can create your own wall of wood with a striking room divider like the one below. Delineating space in an open plan living without blocking the line of sight or even the flow of light, this elegant divider acts as an accent wall that is easy on the eyes and space-savvy as well. 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.
