Living Room Sunday, July 16th 2017.
The black and white combo can be used in a variety of ways. Stripes are one option. They are used here by Suzy Hoodless in the form of a minimalist area rug which also introduces small colorful accents. The rug complements a décor based on neutrals and pastels. Wood-burning fireplaces and stoves add a unique touch to living rooms. They can be introduced in modern interiors without disrupting the balance, especially if you want to give the room a charming, bohemian feel. By mixing diverse materials, finishes, textures and patterns you can emphasize the desired characteristics and make other seem less striking.
On the other hand, when the goal is a serene and simplistic décor, it’s good to eliminate any unnecessary details and to emphasize the basics. Kathleen Clements managed to do that here by placing a light gray sofa opposite to the fireplace and defining the seating area with a striped area rug. Exposed brick or stone walls are known for their ability to make living room look exquisite. Designer Karen Akers chose to paint the fireplace wall white which concealed its natural color but exposed its textured and imperfect structure.
A casual living room is often defined by the presence of lightweight furniture, simple and bright colors and the use of simple patterns and forms. The lack of big and robust pieces of furniture allow the décor to look fresh and airy while everything else makes the room look particularly comfortable.
