When we say “neutral colours” many people think of it as a boring color scheme, but nothing could be further from the truth. For many individuals when neutral color schemes are mentioned, they immediately think of only beige. First of all, there are hundreds of shades of beige to choose from and there is a lot more to using beige in your living room’s interior design. Think about the way you will combine colors, neutral and otherwise. No matter what color scheme you end up choosing, the key to having a successful living room design is finding the right balance. There are a few simple, but creative strategies that can help you transform your living room into a beautiful space.

White and Dark Neutrals

Who said that all neutrals had to be lighter shades? You most likely think of beige if asked to name a neutral color, but darker hues can be neutral too. Some of the dark neutrals include dark brown, navy blue, some blacks, charcoal, gray and even deep gold. Some of these darker neutral colors work perfectly to bring balance to the living room and can be the perfect choice for sofas or recliners. If you prefer, you can use a dark neutral to anchor your living room by using it on an accent wall, area rug or for window treatments. Offset these with a lighter colored sofa or living room set and you’ve got a match made in heaven. Dark neutral shades are going to look best with lighter neutrals.

Using Monochromatic Neutral Colors

If you’d like to go for a more sophisticated look in the living room while not worrying too much about making everything match perfectly, you might want to try a monochromatic neutral color scheme. Start out with a base color that you prefer and really love. For instance, how about a deep, espresso brown? This is a classy color for living room furniture. Then you are going to use lighter shades of this dark neutral for other room elements. To achieve a balanced look, remember to use shades from both extremes lighter and darker.

Using Neutrals with Splashes of Color

Maybe you’re the type who prefers neutral furniture and walls but want to be able to express a more creative side. You can achieve this goal by using a neutral color as a backdrop and adding in brighter colors. The neutral shades tend to make splashes of colour literally pop visually. To keep this style balanced, you will want to use two or three accent colors max. If you add too many colours in it can become too busy and you’ll lose the effect. Choose neutrals for your furnishings and add in splashes of colours with your accessories like throw pillows, rugs, lampshades or window treatments.

If one says that the living room is the heart of a house, I indeed agree with that. The living room is the place where you spend most of the time of your day. Trends keep on changing day by day, time to time, and country to country. What’s found perfect in the New World may not be fit on the perfection scale of the old world and vice versa. So, the designing and furnishing of the living room should be according to the demand of the locality and of course, keeping an account of your comfort level. 

Play with colors, schemes, themes, patterns, styles, and leave an imprint of your perfection on every single inch of your living room. Décor your living room in a trendy and classy manner and believe me, you will fall in love with your innovation. Let’s have a look at some better design ideas that would help you uplift your living room. 

Colorful seating arrangement

Light walls with vibrant colored seating, make a perfect look for your living room. Accent chairs, sofas, barstools having bold shades are trending these days. These dark colors are complimented by light wall color and soft texture of the surrounding with these jewel tones like emerald green, ruby sapphire blue colored seating blazing in the center. 

Large-scale wall art

Art has always been in home décor fashion for decades, but in the last few years, the artwork has set a big splash. Big, bold and carefully chosen wall paintings and large-scale designs are trending these days. Corner art designs, illustrating portraits, and simplicity in artwork has the sole power to give your living room an entirely different look. An ideal wall painting should cover four-seventh of the theme wall of the living room. 

Light up your living room

The brighter it is, the more elegant look it gives. A well-lighted living room offers a classy look. You can put on a glamorous chandelier, fairy lights, or simple recessed lights to add to the beauty of your living room. Light fixtures add more space and enhance the elegance of the desired place. If these lights are complemented with light walls and mirrors, it will give an indescribably magnificent look to your living room. 

Cushions and pillow selection

Cushions and pillows though seem like accessories, but they add up a lot in beautifying your living room. More cushions on the sofas and floor cushions are flattering to the comfort and finishing of the designing. Swapping up the cushion covers and adding a variety of textures, motifs, colors, and prints can give your living room an energetic and the desired look. 

Play with the pattern

The pattern is the basic component of a theme. Wrong and mismatched patterns with the theme can make your layout look a bit weird and unattractive. The complimenting patterns in rugs, curtains, cushions, and walls with the item will make everyone praise your choice and designing ability. Colors should be carefully chosen while working on interior designing.  To give your living room, the best look, you don’t always need an interior designer. Just think wisely and choose carefully what you think suits your home and goes best with the theme of your living room. A pleasant living room would be a guarantee to make you love your time at home.

Comments Off on 6 Ways to Make Your Dining Table Design Worthy


We, Indians, love opulence and drama in every possible theme. May it be our movies or our novels, we dig for everything grand and larger than life. But when it comes to enjoying a meal with folks, we prefer a soothing ambience with an easy-on-the-eyes setup. A meal is a time when we open our hearts to loved ones, no matter where we are. It serves as a bonding medium for generations to come together and exchange stories and experiences. Why settle for a drab table setting when the conversation is so interesting? So make every meal a wonderful experience by setting up a table. Regardless of what you are serving, let the table decorations add glory to every cuisine. Add drama to the table with little trinkets.

1. Chalk Out a Plan!

Before you take out all your cutlery and serveware, give your table 5 minutes. Observe your dining table and understand how it can act like the epicentre of the meal that you are hosting. Create a mental plan to ensure that every person feels comfortable with it. If you are hosting a soiree, then ensure that you have enough space on the table to place everything you want, without having to move things around at each course.

2. A Subtle Centrepiece

Every table deserves a story! Plan out your table setting around a brilliantly curated centrepiece. Give your table a conversation starter by placing a centrepiece in the middle. If you have a huge dining table, then you can always go for two pieces. For a small-size table, you can go for a longer-than-usual centrepiece to save on surface area. You can play around with flowers, candles, lanterns, mason jars, and much more. For authentic Indian style setup, use tea lights and brass accessories wrapped in colourful strips of cloth. You can also place a long strip of a mirror in place of a table runner and top it with tea lights and wooden animal figurines.

3. Story of Crockery and Cutlery

Placement of cutlery and crockery plays a very important role. This not only nurtures table etiquettes but also helps you in maintaining a clean setup. Cultivate a habit of using separate plates for mains and bread or chapatti to ensure that the bread does not get soggy. Introduce table napkins to the whole setup to eliminate the possibility of accidental spillage. Dress up these napkins with eye-catching holders. You can also tie these napkins with dry bamboo grass or ribbons. When it comes to spoons and forks, always ensure that every plate is partnered with an adequate number. If you are serving Indian cuisines, then you need to place a couple of spoons beside a plate. In case of continental, place a set of forks, spoons and a knife. The type of crockery and cutlery you pick will itself make a big difference to your table setting. You can use authentic copper and brass plates and utensils to give an authentic Indian feel, or you can choose very colourful ceramic plates to give a bohemian personality to your dinner party. When it comes to cutlery and utensils, the choices are endless.

4. Little Shiny Trinkets

To maintain a theme on a table, you can introduce little trinkets. These trinkets should blend in the whole set up but also maintain distinct identities. You can have metal birds holding salt and pepper shakers or a thin stone slab with napkins placed under a glass goldfish.

5. Mismatched Table Settings

Sometimes the beauty is in not trying too hard! You can create a very easy relaxed yet chic table setting by mixing and matching a plethora of colours and design styles. This dash of colour will show your individualism and will also create an easy going, fun mealtime.

6. For those Formal Dinners

Some dinners are very formal, for example, calling your or your spouse’s boss for dinner or having your mother-in-law eat in your new home for the first time. We recommend that you keep the table settings at such times simple, timeless and elegant. For one, it will showcase you as a sophisticated host or hostess who has great taste and also if you keep it simple, you can achieve more without adding even more stress to yourself for this important occasion. We suggest you go with elegant white laze napkins, high-end dishware in classic pastel colours and some simple flowers for the centrepiece.

If you wish to bring together your family every night, even then try to dress up your dining table. As, humans, we crave for something new every day. Then why not give your eyes little treats every day in the form of creatively done dining tables. It can also act as a bonding exercise if you include your kids, siblings, mother, or any loved one in the decoration process.
