If it comes to creating a statement from the living space, background is the best buddy. Nothing sets the scene quite like a daring and graphic or colorful and pattern-packed backdrop. Whether you would like to get inspired by a soothing and subtle grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room background notions will do just fine.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the best background for extra texture that does not stand out additional statements throughout a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living room to life using luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and colorful upholstery.

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 home. |} The comparison does not stop there: Redd continued to venture outside design convention by incorporating contrasting stone 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 top 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 standard style of the Victorian architectural components while still feeling edgy in black and white. By comparison, the white linen slip-covered sofa feels more casual and whether the ceramic decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background in a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as lovely as it gets. We love the way the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the moody framed artwork, both of which contrast with the sweet background and even sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
