If it comes to creating a statement from the living space, background is the best friend. Nothing sets the scene quite like a daring and graphic or colorful and pattern-packed background. Whether or not you would like to get motivated by a subtle and soothing grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room background ideas will do the trick.

Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired pattern, this background in a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as lovely as it gets.
