What Houzz contributors are saying:
Combining patterned pieces with those in a combination of neutral tones (and some metallics) can create a colorful-feeling space with very little color at all.Notice how in this space, besides the leafy greens, the only other bright hues are found in small doses in the pillow fabrics, and yet the overall effect is that of a rich and varied palette — totally livable but thoroughly colorful.More: The Case for In-Between ColorsHow to Create a Whole-House Color Palette
7. Play second fiddle to the conversation area. Make conversation the focus with a furniture layout that uses facing couches or chairs. Placing the TV perpendicular to the sofa does make it less comfortable to watch, so make sure you can swivel your TV to get the best possible angle.

Style note: Draw attention away from the screen with statement-making wall decor like the ceiling-medallions-turned-wall-art shown here.
Create a conversation space in your living room. Living spaces are often designed around the TV, which essentially makes your set the room’s focus. Instead, face your sofa and chairs toward one another with the coffee table in between. Not only does it look sophisticated, but it also makes your space conducive to entertaining.

This homeowner chose Perfect Greige 6073 by Sherwin Williams, which doesn't detract from her great furniture finds.
One of the first things that caught our eye was the amazing art installation on a wall in the living room. They're actually ceiling medallions, which Joi purchased from Architectural Depot. In bright white, they truly pop against Sherwin Williams' Perfect Greige covered walls.
These medallions made up of different shapes and styles work well together because they're united through color. They easily create a powerful backdrop without feeling cluttered because of the bright white paint. The effect is perfect for this eclectic, hip room.
