As for the different color combinations that include gray, purple is always a good choice. Red, blue, brown or yellow are also nice options to take into consideration. And since gray is nothing but black and white combined, you can also use it with the classical black and white and maybe with some subtle touches of red. Even though gray is a color with character, it’s still considered a neutral so a complementary tone is always welcomed. To avoid a dull interior, you can try playing with textures and patterns.
Consider the room’s dimensions when arranging the furniture because you must not use too much furniture when the room is smaller or it will look really crowded. It is also important to leave enough space for traffic lanes, at least 20-24 inches. Nowadays people prefer the minimalist style in decorating the living-room, but you can make your own choices as long as you keep these basic rules.
People think it’s very easy to arrange the furniture in the house, especially in the living room. But it takes more than spreading the furniture pieces randomly in the living-room to obtain a good impression, a balanced livingroom design that feels welcoming, cosy and nice looking, all at the same time.
In a large living room, you can make a certain area stand out by using color. The seating area, for example, can feature a combination of turquoise armchairs, matching accent pillows and an area rug also incorporating the same color. For a living room with large windows, glass walls and a lot of natural sunlight, you can emphasize the brightness with simple and light colors. Pastels are really nice. The turquoise curtains look wonderful here and are reminiscent of the clear sky.
Many home furnishings companies have reproduction lines that recreate the nostalgic and retro looks that we all love. If you decide to use authentic period furniture from garage sales, hand-me-downs or from vintage stores, ensure you are safe when painting, refinishing, or changing the look of old furniture. Especially children’s furnishings can have lead based paint, toxic varnishes and also can have safeguards that are not in place as modern children’s furniture. Keep this in mind if you’re refinishing old furniture or plan to buy children’s cribs, changing tables and other adolescent furniture.
