Turquoise touches. If you’re too nervous to stray far from a neutral, choose just one shade you love (and keep the walls a calming beige, as seen in this living room) to dip a toe into the pool of color possibilities. Sleek style. mad men-esque furniture looks slick, but inviting, when paired with a cozy stone fireplace and lots of wood embellishments.
Decorate in layers. Beautifully designed living rooms place noteworthy objects at every level. Mentally divide your space into low, mid, and high areas, and position elements to encourage the eye to travel up, down, and around. Here, a faux animal skin covering a woven area rug provides underfoot allure while a prettily accessorized tray atop a trunk and perky pillows add color at the midground. Use vivid canvases, striking sconce shades, and sculptural standing lamps to keep interest running high.
Black and white, this ultra-modern room uses color sparingly for a sleek look. Classic elegance, position your couch under an oversized window to allow the sunlight and outdoor scene be the focal point of an otherwise neutral room.
