8. Window treatments. Shutters are popular right now, and you can see why — they look stylish and are a practical choice for adding privacy and diffusing light. However, curtains can bring a softness into the room and make the space feel warm and cozy when they’re drawn in the evening. What if you want shutters and everyone else wants curtains?The compromise: If your budget allows, go for the best of both worlds. In this gorgeous living room, shutters block the view inside the bay window, while curtains add a soft border on both sides.
Dabble with vintage hues. This pretty blend of chalky colors and vintage styles is spot-on if you don’t want a seating mix that’s too self-consciously eclectic. The pleasing blend of buttermilk, peppermint and coral colors weave in a considerable mix of patterns, but there’s harmony in the united colors. The green of the far sofa is picked up in the pillows of its neighbor, while the coral of the armchair is echoed in the subtle print on the larger sofa. Mix and match with decorative pillows
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Patterns: Use of colours (green, cream and organge, in different patterns but all ties in. Rug connects everything with cream background and coloured squares of pastel orange, green and coral. Green leaves in vase, orange/brown books on bookshelf. Glass table with gold legs is light and doesn't interrupt the visual of the patters on rug and furniture. Off-white walls balance as they calm the room.
