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.
It is always advisable to set off with a plan in your mind and a generic outlook of what your living room should be like. It does mean that you should know every head and tail in advance but a general idea will add the icing on the cake. It will help you during the decoration. As behind every successful project, there is a strategy and a plan, same should be applied here.
Outdoor living, especially on the front porch was a way of life for many homeowners during midcentury years and bringing retro styled garden furniture to your front porch is one way to re-live those years. Metal or heavy gauge steel garden furniture in pastel hues or vibrant color palettes are perfect for your outdoor home. Add a modern appeal with all-weather seat cushions in fun patterns like florals, stripes, or polka dots to bring back the days of drinking ice cold soft drinks from a glass bottle with a straw on the front porch and watching the world go by!
Whether you love the retro metal arc floor lamp with the big lampshade that was popular in the 1970’s gracing everyone’s living room or you prefer the introduction of aluminum into wall and pendant fixtures of the late 1960’s – lighting was an integral part of retro furniture decor. Look to your favorite lighting manufacturers for lighting reproductions for your ceiling, walls, floor in every retro style imaginable.
Lemon Sorbet is not for every room or every setting warns Donna Frasca, Color Specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina. “You won’t see it much here in primary living spaces here in the South, with the open floor pans and direct sun exposure. But I certainly would use it as an accent color to lighten or brighten up a nursery, bathroom or children’s room.” Above the pale yellow lends itself beautifully with the pale blues in this coastal, nautical home.
