Add vibrant splashes of color. As I mentioned earlier, gray is an all-star neutral. It serves as the perfect backdrop for bold, vibrant color. Just be sure to balance loud color with understated pieces, like the acrylic coffee table pictured here.
Let me start by stating the obvious to my regular readers: I’ve never really shown this room on the blog before. When we first moved in, we had the tv on a bench in front of the window, two oversized brown leather pieces floating opposite the tv, a bookcase tucked into the corner, and an old tufted ottoman in the center. They all looked beautiful in our old living room (where the tv hung on the wall above the fireplace), but in this room they were awkward and totally inefficient. The room felt cramped, and we could still only seat 4-5 people.
The sectional sofa has evolved as a piece of furniture into something wholly transformational for living rooms. These innovative seating arrangements offer the kind of spontaneous rearrangement that more permanent furniture sets could only dream of.
