Just because you’re decorating in black and white doesn’t mean you can’t hide a splash of color somewhere in the design. Consider a white sectional, chaise and cocktail table, paired with gold wall art or a tinted glass floor lamp. On a reclaimed elm or cast iron coffee table, you could add that color in the form of a potted plant. As always when styling with black and white, make sure the color is subtle, not bold.
Finding artwork that is large enough to work over a living room sofa can be a challenge. If your artwork is too small or it looks lost on a big wall, create an art wall. Group smaller artwork and photos together to create a gallery-style collage. Arrange them on the floor first to determine your layout before you start hanging. A good rule of thumb is to keep the same amount of space between each piece.
Does your living room have an awkward setback or quirky corner that’s tough to furnish? Turn it into an asset by adding a built-in desk to create a functional and attractive home office space. A built-in desk does not have to be complicated, expensive or even require a contractor to install it. You can make one desk yourself like the one above with a few basic items – a desktop, a few wall shelves and a drawer unit.
