Give a neutral living room scheme definition with hits of dramatic black. Add some sharp, contemporary styling in a mainly neutral living room with accents of black. Keep touches minimal to keep the overall scheme relaxed and understated but with a more edgy loft apartment style. Adding black to a rug border or smart charcoal borders and piping to neutral cushions adds a striking accent touch without looking heavy or overworked. Use Graphic prints with slim black frames and monochrome canvases in clusters on a wall.
A room without texture can feel dull and lifeless, so add tactile surfaces for warmth and interest. Get the linear look with narrow gauge shirt and pyjama patterns perfect for smart casual sittings rooms. Layering up voiles, cotton, cord and canvas twill on upholstery, soft furnishings and curtain treatments brings warmth and cosiness in spades. Timeless chino tones give this look an easy style, while country stripes get a modern makeover in different widths and scales. Mixing styles likes this injects rhythm into a room.
