You might seem a little bit overwhelmed right now by the task of choosing just the right combination of furniture. No need to worry if you are because most people are at first.
It gets easier as you become accustomed to coordinating various colors, shapes, and styles, of popular home decor and furnishings. Soon you may even become a pro, but at first you just need to get started.
The following tips can make your living room decoration project easier:
- So many styles and models are accessible nowadays that it is hard to select the “wrong” design. However, if you still are undecided, you may desire to pick out a blend of neutral colors that all coordinate. For instance, various tones of white such as pearl or ivory are combined.
- If neutral is boring to you, then a variety of bolder color combinations can be applied to your decoration theme. Common examples of contrasting color mixtures used include red and Black, purple and yellow, or hot pink and bright green. However, when choosing these bright, contrasting combinations take extra care not to return to the gaudiness that was the 1970s and 1980s.
- Choosing contemporary living furniture pieces does not always entail choosing items that are produced just yesterday. Besides, if it is something that is a little “too new” it may be outdated in a year anyway. With that in mind, you will understand that even exceptional pieces produced in the 1970s and 1980s may be utilised, but just not the most “busy” or “cumbersome” models.
- Certain time-tested models of furniture are likely to never fail you. Some of the most excellent options open to you include the following: Charles Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, Poul Volthier Chair and Ottoman, or the Charles Le Corbusier three-seater sofa. The same is true of additional items inspired by George Nelson, Arne Jacobson, Charles Eames, or Pierre Paulin.
- As you decorate, if you have any doubts at all, just listen to your heart. If you feel inside that something is “just not right” about a specific combination then you may want to give it some more thought. Trial and error is sometimes a very important lesson, although perhaps not the preferred learning curve.
- For instance, if you are accustomed to only decorating in glass or wood, why not try other materials or new versions of old favorites? In fact, in the case of contemporary living room furniture the reconditioning of an old piece of furniture can oftentimes become your best commodity.
