Chaucer RoadEclectic Living Room, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Go solo. In this boho-style living room, the designers opted for a single industrial-style wall light centered over the sofa to illuminate the seating area. The picture below helps keep the light from feeling lost on the large blue wall.There are a lot of earthy tones and natural surfaces in this room, so the choice of an angled wall light in black and burnished gold provides a cool contrast. The sharp lines of the light add an industrial edge to the laid-back space.
4. Bold wall paint. Some people love white walls as a backdrop for brighter accessories, while others prefer a bolder hue on their vertical surfaces. The color you choose for your walls can have a huge effect on the look of the room, so a dispute over the shade can bring your whole decorating project to a standstill. The compromise: Go for a mix of the two by painting one wall in a bold tone and leaving the others neutral. Here, the wall behind the sofa sports a deep blue that contrasts with the rest of the space and makes a cozy feature of the seating area.How to Create a Feature Wall (Without Going Back to the ’90s)
