Grey and yellow are one of the most popular combos for various types of décor because it's refreshing, vivid and matches various décor styles. This combo looks great for all kinds of spaces, from kitchens to bedrooms, and today I'd like to have a look how to rock these colors in a living room.
Here, the colors and intricate patterns feel very casual and traditional, but on individual inspection, nearly every individual piece is contemporary. White wainscoting and paneled cabinetry bring back a homey aesthetic filled with memories of trends past. But check out that tropical backsplash designs! An acrylic panel over patterned wallpaper is all you need to get the look.
A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I'd like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
A large area rug creates a separate area in this open living room while gauzy curtains can be pulled closed to prevent the dreaded television glare. A cozy nook for a few friends, the light fixtures in this room remind us of deconstructed bird cages. Molded wood chairs are perfectly modern, though the plush sofa is probably a better place to snooze.
If you want to accentuate the sink area or to divide the bathroom into zones, create a sink niche with lights, storage and a large mirror, of course. It's much comfier to add lights – as many as you need – into such a niche, plus you can use it for storage and it looks awesome. The depth of this niche depends on the size of your bathroom, and its décor on your décor style. Look at the ideas below to choose!
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
The eye can't help but be drawn to the pretty pastel wall art in this living room. You don't even miss the TV. A cool, neutral color palette keeps this living room simply chic. An area rug is one thing, but painting an entire section of wall in a contrasting color really drives home the point that this living room is separate from the rest of the home.
Don't have enough room for books? Store them neatly near your bed and crate a very nowledgeable headboard. Or open up the books and post them on the wall, for easy access to any famous quote. Mirrors, wallpapers, old wooden panels, an aquarium and even skis- when it comes to designing your perfect headboard, there are no limitations. Unless your sleep partner is not all that much into extravagant bedroom features- you guys should probably have a chat first. From traditional to modern, the headboard ideas below will surprise and inspire you. As usual, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know which design is your favorite!
Contemporary furniture and layout meet a retro-inspired color palette, all united by a single painting in the charming style of 70s graphic design. While the furniture in this living room is perfectly up-to-date, it mimics the low-slung forms popular in Mid Century Modern homes. The wall panels to the right have a touch of Art Deco flair.
Grey is one of the most popular basic colors that is easy to mix and match and is great for every space. But a grey living room can look too boring and impersonal and adding different hues of greens to it, makes a whole lot of difference. Various shades of green make the space cooler, bolder, fresher and much more eye-catching. Green reminds of natural world around us, and it's perfect if you want to create a fall or a spring mood.
