If it comes to creating a statement in the living room, background is the very best buddy. Nothing sets the scene like a bold and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed background. Whether you want to get motivated by a subtle and soothing 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 which does not stand out additional statements throughout a room. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living room to life with luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and vibrant upholstery.
Who needs books when you can have book-printed background? |} One hundred percent , we definitely prefer actual books. But a fun metafictional background such as this in a research will enhance the theme with a sense of humor and style, as in the sitting room 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 home. |} The contrast does not stop there: Redd continued to venture beyond layout convention by incorporating contrasting stone 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 top designers love a good deal
This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating with spirit. |} The beautiful mural wallpaper sticks to the standard style of the Victorian architectural components while still feeling edgy in white and black. In contrast, the snowy linen slip-covered sofa feels more casual and while the ceramic decoration 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 in a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as beautiful as it gets. We love how the inky black painted fireplace speaks to the moody framed artwork, both of which contrast with the sweet background as well as sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
