If it comes to making a statement in the living space, background is the best friend. Nothing sets the scene quite 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 area background notions will do just fine.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the best background for added texture which doesn't drown out other statements during a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living area to life with luxe throw pillows, bold designs, and vibrant 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 like this in a research will improve the theme with a sense of humor and fashion, as in the sitting area designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Modern Meets Traditional
This modern self portrait by Chuck Close is a bold contrast with an chinoiserie background (Iksel's Eastern Eden) supporting it in this Miles Redd-designed house. |} The contrast doesn't stop there: Redd continued to venture beyond design convention by integrating contrasting jewel tones and mixing contemporary furniture fashions with antique pieces. Oh--and believe it or not, the lime green chair is from Ikea! |} Evidence even the best designers love a good deal
flat by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating together with spirit. |} The gorgeous mural wallpaper sticks to the standard style of the architectural components while still feeling nostalgic in black and white. In contrast, the snowy linen slip-covered couch feels more casual and while the porcelain decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired pattern, this background in 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, each of which contrast with the candy background and even sweeter and intimate floral arrangement on the mantel.
