We all know the typical way of adding color to your living room- painting a wall a different and bolder color- but what if we told you there are more creative ways to add a touch of personality in your midcentury living room? These 5 ideas will show you how easy it is to take your living room from muted to vibrant in a unique and elevated way!
CHOOSE JEWEL-TONE ACCENT CHAIRS
Rather than swapping out the anchor of your living room (the sofa), bring color into the furniture through accent chairs. Jewel tones are always an elegant option, adding richness without being overwhelming. Look for saturated hues paired with brass or gold elements to add warmth and a glam touch.
PUT DYNAMIC TONES ON DISPLAY
Open shelving, like a bookcase or even a single wall-mounted shelf, offers an easy chance to add color and personality to your living room. Keep in mind the size of the space between your shelves as you shop for decor items. Layer your shelves with finds from your travels, plants, books, and ceramics, varying the hues, dimensions, and textures to create a dynamic composition.
LAYER SATURATED PILLOWS OVER A NEUTRAL SOFA
Throw pillows are one of the simplest ways to change up a room’s vibe. You can even do it seasonally. The key is to start with a neutral sofa, which gives you the most flexibility in palette. This is also an opportunity to play with texture and shape to bring even more intrigue into a room.
ADD ABSTRACT ART WITH SPLASHES OF COLOR
Think of your walls as a blank canvas for artistic display. Abstract art is a fun and expressive way to add color to a room without committing to a particular scene or image as you might with figurative art. Look for pieces with shades that complement your overall palette and give the artwork pride of place above the sofa.
GO VIVID WITH COFFEE TABLE STYLING
Use your coffee table as a rotating canvas for bright and beautiful objects like sculptural vases and real or faux flowers, which can be stacked atop a glossy navy serving tray. More is less when it comes to tabletop styling; stick to just a few items at a time for greater impact.
