Living Room Sunday, July 16th 2017.
Small living room furniture is best kept simple. Michael Dawkins introduces here a white-based design. This opens up the room. The white sofa, armchairs, coffee table, area rug and curtains are complemented by touches of stained wood and the occasion blue and green in the form of wall décor or natural plants.
Balance is important so overusing a certain color can turn out to be a mistake. Try to maintain pleasant contrasts throughout the room. Check out how The New Design Project managed to play with black and white without overpowering the décor in any way. An interesting design strategy for living room is to have one wall painted using a dark color such as blue, brown or even black. Select a wall which can be decorated with contrasting elements such as a white wall clock, a painting or, in this case, a fireplace mantel. This is a living room designed by Arent & Pyke.
Another beautiful strategy is to take advantage of the home’s original architecture and design. When decorating a living room, for example, one can choose to explore the ceiling beams if there are any or to highlight an arched door or window, just like Wendy Haworth did when designing this elegant living room infused with mid-century style.
