The media room in a Boston townhouse decorated by design firm Wells & Fox features three paintings by Mark Bradford and a work by Mark Grotjahn. The light fixture is by David Weeks Studio, the custom-made sectional sofa is clad in a Holland & Sherry wool, and the reproduction Illum Wikkelsø lounge chair by Lost City Arts is upholstered in a Jim Thompson linen blend.
Embrace warm wood tones. The warmth of wood helps to balance out the cool tones often found in gray, so embrace wood where you have it. If you have wood paneling or wood beams overhead, install an eye-catching light fixture to draw the eye upward. If you have wood built-ins, style them with colorful, curated accessories to ensure they’re a focal point.
In accessories designer Fiona Kotur's Hong Kong house, the sitting room’s custom-made sectional sofa is dressed in a Designtex fabric, with pillows of a Lee Jofa solid and a Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks print; Kotur designed the cocktail table, which is clad in basketweave-pattern copper tile by Maya Romanoff, the 1950s palm-tree lamp is by Jansen, and the vintage Moroccan carpet is from Woven Accents.
Related with color; you may need to replace any dark color if you want to make your colorful sofa works better for summer. It does not mean that you need to replace all of your furniture. Replacing small object such as picture frame; lampshade; and vases can give different look as well.
1. Begin with the paint: Starting to decorate living room for summer means that you need to begin from the wall. New wall color is the most obvious thing to bring the change. Recommended colors for summer are all colors in light tone; for example cool blue or green. Those colors will make you feel the utmost coziness of your living room when the air is getting too hot outside.
