Living Room / June 10, 2018 / .
After an effortlessly contemporary look. You can not go wrong with monochrome. Create a dramatic backdrop to your scheme with a bold black and white wallpaper, such as this striking cityscape. Paint woodwork black to frame your feature wall and turn it into a work of art. To soften the scheme, add a smattering of furniture and accessories in natural wood tones.
Make the most of natural light in the room by keeping window dressings simple. If you are lucky enough to have high ceilings, full length curtains are a good choice as they will draw the eye upwards and create the illusion of space, even if the square footage in your living room is a bit meagre. Subtle stripe designs add to the feeling of extra depth. If you do choose curtains, make sure they can be swept away from the window for light.
Who says wallpaper needs to go on your walls. Make a striking statement in your living room by wallpapering a key piece of furniture, such as a sideboard. This is also a fantastic way to upcycle an old item that might otherwise end up at the tip. Go for wood or brick effect wallpaper for an on trend trompe loeil look.
Use an eye catching wallpaper to unify different living zones in an open plan space. Here, two separate seating areas are visually drawn together by a whimsical botanical print running around the entire circumference of the room. Paper from the dado rail upwards to prevent the scheme from becoming too busy, it is a sneaky way to save money on your scheme, too.
