If it comes to creating a statement from the living room, background is your very best friend. Nothing sets the scene like a bold and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed backdrop. Whether or not you would like to get inspired by a subtle and soothing grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living area background ideas will do the trick.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the best background for added texture which does not stand out additional statements throughout a room. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living area to life using luxe throw pillows, bold designs, and vibrant upholstery.
Who needs books when you can have book-printed background? |} One hundred percent kidding, we certainly prefer actual books. But a fun metafictional background like this at a research will enhance 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) supporting it within this Miles Redd-designed house. |} The contrast does not stop there: Redd continued to venture outside design convention by integrating contrasting jewel tones and mixing modern furniture fashions with classic pieces. Oh--and believe it or not, the lime green chair is from Ikea! |} Evidence even the best designers love a good deal
This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating together with spirit. |} The beautiful mural wallpaper sticks to the traditional style of the Victorian architectural components while still feeling nostalgic in white and black. By comparison, the snowy linen slip-covered sofa feels more casual and while the ceramic decor adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background at a 2LG Studio-designed living area is as lovely as it gets. We love how the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the moody framed artwork, each of which contrast with the candy background and even sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
