Carefully placed mirrors not only offer a unique approach to home decor, but can also make a smaller living room look larger. By arranging the angles of reflection of a number of mirrors, you can not only make the best of the more interesting components of your living room décor, but also make the room appear much large than it is. You can use lighting along with mirrors to enhance this effect.
Thats the artistic view. Many prefer to describe the modern living room as being bright, airy and interesting with colorful accents. Not much difference, then! In fact, much American furniture design does tend to focus a great deal on natural wood finishes, while UK, Scandinavian (aka IKEA!) and continental European designs appear to be more adventurous, making good use of accent colors and experimental shapes. Is this really true? Many would believe it to be somewhat unfair to American furniture designers, because they tend to cater for what Americans are seeking. However, how do you know what you want if you are continually exposed to the same old stuff?
Traditional American furniture design is characterized by solid wood in natural shades, with upholstery, furnishings and décor to match. Modern living room furniture tends to be associated with clean lines, whites and bright colors put together to offer a sensation of space with colorful accents intruding as focal points.
You may decide on a color theme that could involve either matching shades or contrasting primary colors. Alternatively, you may prefer a combination of wood and leather: solid wood occasional and cocktail tables, and leather sofas and chairs, whether individual pieces or sectionals. Lets have a look at some options based on leather upholstery combine with solid American woods such as maple, oak and cherry.
