If it comes to making a statement from the living space, background is the best friend. Nothing sets the scene quite like a bold 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 area background ideas will do just fine.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the best background for added texture which does not stand out additional statements throughout a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living area to life with luxe throw pillows, bold designs, and colorful upholstery.
Who needs books when you can have book-printed background? |} One hundred percent kidding, we definitely prefer actual books. But a fun metafictional background such as this at a research will improve the subject with a sense of humor and style, as from the sitting area made by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Modern Meets Traditional
contemporary self portrait by Chuck Close is a bold contrast with the chinoiserie background (Iksel's Eastern Eden) behind it in this Miles Redd-designed home. |} The contrast does not stop there: Redd continued to venture outside layout convention by integrating contrasting jewel tones and mixing modern furniture styles with classic pieces. Oh--and believe it or not, the lime green chair is from Ikea! |} Proof even the best designers love a good deal
This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating together with soul. |} The beautiful mural wallpaper sticks to the traditional type of the Victorian architectural components while still feeling nostalgic in white and black. In contrast, the snowy linen slip-covered sofa feels much more casual and whether the porcelain decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
From the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background at a 2LG Studio-designed living area is as beautiful as it gets. We love the way the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the moody framed artwork, both of which contrast with the candy background as well as sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
