If you`re looking for a well-designed bar cart that doesn‘t cost an arm and a leg, don’t forget to look through other categories of furniture as well. For example, IKEA‘s Bygel Utility Cart ($29.99) is presented as a kitchen island alternative but could easily be used as a space-saving drink trolley. The removable top drawer doubles as a serving tray and the included three hooks would be great for hanging towels or ice tongs. Take your guests on a little journey every time you serve a drink with the worldly Lodge Bar Junior. Although it looks like a travel trunk on the outside, the inside opens up to reveal everything you need to get the party started.
In our quest for the right living room color and the perfect patterns to bring it alive, we often ignore another very important facet of interior design that can play a huge role in shaping a perfect home. Texture is as important as color in creating a beautifully balanced and exquisite living room. In fact, you can use just a couple of simple neutral shades, embrace a tone-on-tone approach and use just texture to design a dashing room! While we regularly turn to concrete, wood and creative furnishings to add texture to the room, grass cloth is another great choice.
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.
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!
