When it comes to making a statement from the living room, background is your best buddy. Nothing sets the scene like a daring and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed background. Whether or not you want to get motivated by a soothing and subtle grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room background notions will do the trick.

Modern Meets Traditional

This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating together with spirit. |} The gorgeous mural wallpaper sticks to the traditional type of the architectural components while still feeling nostalgic in black and white.

Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background in a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as lovely as it gets. We love how the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the darkened framed art, both of which contrast with the sweet background and even sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
