When it comes to creating a statement from the living room, background is your very best friend. Nothing sets the scene like a daring and graphic or colorful and pattern-packed background. Whether or not 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 the trick.

Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
From the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired pattern, this background at a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as lovely as it gets.
