If it comes to creating a statement from the living space, background is your very best buddy. Nothing sets the scene quite like a bold and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed backdrop. Whether or not you would like to get motivated by a soothing and subtle grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room background ideas will do the trick.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the perfect background for extra texture which doesn't drown out other statements throughout a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living room to life with luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and vibrant upholstery.
Who needs books when you can have book-printed background? |} One hundred percent kidding, we definitely prefer actual books.

Modern Meets Traditional
contemporary self portrait by Chuck Close is a bold contrast with an chinoiserie background (Iksel's Eastern Eden) supporting it in this Miles Redd-designed house. |} The contrast doesn't stop there: Redd continued to venture beyond layout convention by integrating contrasting jewel tones and mixing modern furniture fashions with classic pieces.

This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating with spirit. |} The beautiful mural wallpaper sticks to the traditional type of the Victorian architectural elements while still feeling nostalgic in white and black. By comparison, the white linen slip-covered couch feels much more casual and while the porcelain decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired pattern, this background at a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as beautiful as it gets. We love how the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the moody framed artwork, both of which contrast with the candy background and even sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
