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.
The ceiling is often overlooked. We focus so much on the furniture and the wall décor that we forget about this large surface which can easily become a focal point for the living room. There are numerous ways in which to make the most of a ceiling either by using sculptural molding, bold colors, wallpaper or by playing with contrasts.
Variations of the black and white combination can be created using various pastel shades. A beautiful example is the space designed by Shapiro Joyal Studio The faint pink nuances used here contrast with the black elements. Mixed with the natural wood details, they create a feminine and stylish décor.
