Sunny living room in details
How to fill and keep your room with summer ease, brightness and optimism? Take a look at my recent project – summer decor in details.
It is very practical if your sofa is made up of two sections, then you can change the look of a room by moving furniture. During summer we get to have a lot of guests at home, so it is better to put the furniture in front of each other – so your friends could communicate with each other with ease.
Between the furniture, put a coffee table on which you can place cold drinks and light snacks. (If you have one-piece sofa, you can leave it on one side of the room, and on the other place the chairs)
First, you need to find that thing \ color \ pattern, which will be the starting point for all alterations. In this room, a benchmark steel curtain with a fun green print. Like print in a circle is repeated on the dishes, tablecloths, and wall pads.
This circular pattern was the “highlight” of the living room. Executed using a stencil and bright colors, it is repeated in many elements, while combining different colors and shapes in the room.
In this photo neutral beige sofa with bright yellow rug and pillows, exquisite pistachio tone in the other two pillows.
Please note that the sofa cushions have blue colors and so does the picture, both also present the basic colors (yellow and green).
In summer you can and need to relax and go beyond the range of BW and puritanical design.
But the way the room looks with the accented wall does pay the courage, does not it?
Do not give up, and create a mini-dining room next to an available window. In the mini-dining room you can include a small tea table, one chair and a window with a… Beautiful view of the city!
Curtains out of napkins
Square cloth napkins can be used as curtains on the windows. Attach each napkin to little clips for photos \ notes. After you’ve clipped them, diagonally, glue with hot melt adhesive for window moldings.
These “curtains” are done wtih circular pattern, with the same stencil and paint on fabric.
First, they protect the white seats from dirt, and second, drawing on the towels in common with other such patterns, combining mini-dining room with a single coherent interior.
So there you have it! Bright, colorful room with a little bit of summer! 😉
