Mis-matching wooden floors. grey couches and muted accessories make way for a large facial abstract on an exposed brick wall. Red-lined shelving and a miniature yacht help tie the artwork in.Grey's a great base for a modern living room. This decor employs dangling lights to illuminate a grey couch. floor and ottoman with a matching kitchen bench and sprinkles of red and blue. A Turkish rug and floral print add pattern to form.
The colour blue is said to symbolise many positive qualities. such as trust. loyalty. truth. wisdom. intelligence and confidence. faith and heaven. Blue is thought to be beneficial to the mind and body as it produces a calming effect that is even said to slow human metabolism. If light colours leave you cold. dark blue is associated with stability and depth.
but here the cute clash is toned down by the addition of a soft sage accent wall plus deep wood stain. A volume of light blue storage cabinets makes a great divider in this open plan space. Again the blue hue has been warmed by the introduction of soft pink. this time in the form of an area rug. The sweet shades lift the monochrome scheme but are relaxing rather than jarring.This velvety modern sofa is camouflaged against a teal wall.
This one nestles nicely where a run of wall cupboards have been brought up short. The bright yellow ones above pull the kitchen and the television area together.Wood finish accent walls don't have to be flat. This amazing wooden wall has been designed to mimic shattered glass. with each section of wood cut into a shard. The wooden ‘shards' were then mounted not quite flush. so that each piece would reflect the light at a slightly different angle to achieve the desired effect.
