While this room had charming details and classic, functional furniture, the space lacked a layer of personality. A roll-arm sofa in basic white, go-anywhere side chairs, and a large coffee table are proven to last and can stand up to a variety of uses. The coffee table is large enough to serve each seat in the living room, making it the perfect entertaining piece.
Color and personal treasures make a room. With the right furniture in the room, it was time to add pieces that convey a warm and welcoming vibe. Relocating the side chairs created a more intimate conversation area. The chairs' subtle texture and trendy nailhead trim helps them stand out among the room's various accessories. A light green wall color adds pizzazz to the once-bland white walls.
A new console table placed under the living room window can pull double duty as a display space by day and a makeshift buffet or bar by night. Upholstered cubes tucked neatly below the console can be pushed up next to the coffee table for additional party seating. Covered with machine-washable, bleachable white fabric to match the sofa, the cubes look crisp and clean but are easy to live with.
A mix of patterned pillows stands out against the crisp white sofa. The patterns work together because they feature the same mustard, cream, and chocolate color scheme, but each has a different scale. Banish matchy-matchy pillows to create a style statement that's totally unique.
