When it comes to making a statement in the living space, background is the very best buddy. Nothing sets the scene like a bold and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed background. Whether or not you want to get inspired by a soothing and subtle 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 extra texture that doesn't drown out other statements during a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living area to life with luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and vibrant upholstery.

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 nostalgic in white and black. By comparison, the snowy linen slip-covered sofa feels much more casual and while the ceramic decor adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
From the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background at a 2LG Studio-designed living area 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 sweet background as well as sweeter and intimate floral arrangement on the mantel.
