You have heard us declare "It is all in the mix" countless times, and while cliché, you have to admit there is truth to the statement. The best spaces are not one note; rather, they are a little bit modern, a little bit granny-chic (or perhaps mostly minimalist, a hint flashy—you catch our drift). This is especially true when it comes to choosing furniture. Gone are the days when you would buy a matching set from the furniture store. Now it’s about creating a curated space with pieces that combine comfort and style, function and flair.
In an all-white room, there should always be some sort of pop of color. Doing so breaks down all the white and brings a focal point to the room. Focal points are always good and interesting. Choose a bold hue such as blue, red, yellow or green or use accent chair in one of those shades. If you want to add an intricate touch without adding color, texture is the way to go. The easiest way to do just that is to add a rug. Rugs are great for added décor and they come in multiple different colors, designs, patterns, and textures. You can pretty much use any rug you desire and bring the area back to life.
So a semi-circular furniture configuration around the hearth, with no more than 8 feet in between seats, promotes easy interaction with family and friends. For living rooms with neither a hearth or a television, a central focal point makes the most sense. Float a sofa (or two, facing each other) around a coffee table, with chairs placed around the circle to close any gaps.
