Take a note from this living room's design and add a contrasting hue to the backboard of a bookshelf. It's a great way to not only highlight wall shelves . but this design technique can also be used to add some color to free standing bookshelves as well. A bold green and gray pairing might just be what your living room needs.
In the 1940s and '50s. midcentury-modern design. with its clean lines. warm woods. and bold upholstery hues (often in woolly. menswear-inspired textures). changed the way homes looked. Suddenly. less was more. and decorating a home was about finding a design where form served function—a philosophy that continues to inspire designers to this day.
In a Beverly Hills house devised by architecture firm Marmol Radziner with interior design by Boehm Design Assoc.. the great room is furnished with midcentury-modern staples like Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chairs and ottoman by Knoll.The living room in a glass-walled penthouse of a New York City duplex renovated by Steven Harris Architects and decorated by Rees Roberts + Partners features a vintage Milo Baughman chair in the foreground.
The combo of a bright color paired with wood is a wonderful way to help create an inviting and fun space. A high gloss. textured green accent wall pairs perfectly with the large windows in this contemporary living room. The addition of green makes what would be an otherwise monochromatic room feel vibrant and welcoming.
