Unless you are stuck with a small living room, do not automatically push your sofa and all the rest of the furniture against the wall. This arrangement immediate creates a giant empty space in the middle and usually leaves the seating too far apart to be comfortable for conversation. Especially in a larger space, the sofa can help define the main area by moving toward the center of the space or to one side, depending on the configuration. Most designers feel running the furniture around the edges is a major no, no that lacks style and practicality. Even if the space is not big, adding a console between the wall and the sofa can add just enough space to change the feeling of the room. Rather than sitting along a wall, this sofa from Erba delineates the grouping and directed traffic flow between the sofa and the display units. This arrangement also helps highlight a spectacular sofa.
The other way to think about this is decorating in layers. Take a look at the room below. Yes it has a formal air, but it is certainly not stuffy. The sofa on the right has a wooden frame and is very formal. The armchair across the room also has wood, but it is white, and the second sofa is more casual with no visible wood at all. The coffee table and side tables are all different and not formal, yet they work well with the grand chandelier and gold framed portraits on the walls.
Wall coverings have been much maligned in past years, but new patterns and styles are going far beyond the typical cutesy picks with matching borders. Abstracts, geometrics and photo realistic murals are booming home decor trends, particularly when it comes to creating an accent wall.
We all know what concrete surfaces look like: Smooth or textural with a pleasantly stony gray look. But new techniques are making concrete even more versatile. From new colors to different formulations and finishes for the kitchen and bath, concretes appeal continues to grow among home decor trends. WoodForm concrete transforms the material into lightweight, sustainable furniture and fixtures that look like wood with none of the worry. As technology advances, we are looking forward to more ways to use concrete at home.
