What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. As multiple thin panels. A bank of two or more windows presents a prime opportunity for maximum customization of a space. The bold sofa, fun pillows and graphic chevron rug certainly gush with personality in this living room, but the window treatments are the element that turns an otherwise bland wall into a stellar patterned feature. With multiple side-by-side windows, virtually any window treatment arrangement is possible. The four-panel arrangement is particularly appealing in rented spaces, which are so often bereft of unique architectural features and arresting views.
In the living room, with white walls. A navy sofa works as a bold neutral in this fresh, modern living room. The graphic black and white rug, white walls and glass and brass coffee table alone would have felt crisp; the printed yellow curtains create a more relaxed vibe.
Add a large piece of colorful furniture. Wrap the largest piece of furniture in your room in color. Forget about a neutral sofa; bring in a happy colorful upholstered sofa. Or change up your current sofa by reupholstering or adding a slipcover.
Blue and yellow. Blue pairs beautifully with so many colors. Here, navy and yellow (along with a zesty floor pattern) are looking very chic. I can only assume that Rodarte and Oscar de la Renta concur. Achieving a similar look is simple; one big gesture will go a long way. Changing your rug or drapes will made a dramatic difference without a full room overhaul.
Choose drapery in complementary colors. Nothing will make your dark furniture bounce back to life than pairing it with complementary colors. Deep blues and purples sofas will pop against oranges and yellows, as proven by this sofa paired with yellow floral drapery.
