A minimalist living room will thrive with a neutral color palette. If you’re going for a neat and simplistic look, you won’t need more than a select few decor pieces on the transparent coffee table. One of the greatest things about a beige living room is how well it plays with the daylight. It doesn't reflect it as much as a white room would and it appears much more cozy while still remaining very bright.
A major problem that many growing families encounter is the lack of space in the living room. This might not necessarily mean that there isn‘t enough foot room. It is often about finding an adequate amount of space for different activities that each family member is involved in. While one of them is busy flicking through ’what else is on TV‘, others could be flipping through the pages of a magazine. It may be time to think about an additional living space that will serve the varied needs of your family. And an attic collecting dust and cobwebs just might play host to this sparkling new room after a smart makeover.
Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room's incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames. A beige living room is an ideal place for socializing, due to the softness and familiarity of the creamy interior. It feels very predictable, but in a good way. There are no hidden surprises in the room – what you see is what you get, which is a kind and warm space. Maybe you are wondering, can beige stand out at all? Normally you would not really opt for beige if you are looking for a centerpiece, but you can pair your cream furniture with a bright white wall and watch with amusement how quickly the furniture goes from ordinary to eye-catching. If we had to describe beige interior in just two words, we’d go for warm and secure. It seems like the best choice for a family living room!
Last week we talked about the revival of wallpaper, and one of the biggest reasons for this is the use of neutral hues and understated patterns by designers. Modern wallpapers like the Woods add pattern to the room without disturbing the existing color scheme. Grasscloth in neutral colors is similar in its effect and adds 'understated texture' without altering the color palette of the room. Be it trendy gray or simple beige, grass cloth brings excitement to the neutral background while firmly keeping away any color. This is arguably the biggest reason why both designers and homeowners are starting to fall in love with it.
Sectional sofas are a popular choice for modern living rooms, especially when the living room boasts a cozy fireplace. And a stunning view. The brick fireplace in the next featured image truly anchors the space. So does the cushy sofa in a fetching shade of navy. Notice how this cozy room integrates a variety of elegant features without seeming overly formal.
