If 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 backdrop. Whether you would like to get inspired by a soothing and subtle grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room background ideas will do just fine.

Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background in a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as lovely as it gets.
