Investing in quality living room furniture, that will last for years to come, can tally up to quite an expensive outing. Different colour schemes and home accessories can thus be life-savers when it comes to home décor. This month we decided to put words into action by styling a grey square arm corner unit in an informal lounge setting in three different ways. We played around with a trio of colour palettes to showcase three unique looks.
We opted for a soft green and neutral colour scheme to give a luxurious, refined and elegant appeal to the room. Cushions, plants and textured accessories were used to complement the corner unit and colour up the room. Incorporating plants into a room is an easy and affordable way to decorate, and you can easily rotate the plants from one room to the next. Another benefit of using plants and green hues in a room, is that it subconsciously reconnects us with nature, leaving us calm, rejuvenating and restored. What’s not to love?
Using black as an accent colour in a room instantly creates a sophisticated feel. The dark hue serves as an anchor point, which grounds and accentuates décor elements. Together with the grey corner unit and textured wallpaper, we used black and white patterned cushions, a nguni carpet, a modern standing lamp and dark leather ottomans in the lounge setting. The classic colour combination of black and white, paired with natural textures and indoor plants, gave this room an understated, yet contemporary look.
For the third look, we decided on a navy and indigo colour palette. These hues are so versatile and pair beautifully with a range of colours. For extra seating and a pop of colour, we added two Douglas chairs to the setting. The colour theme was further extended with navy and white cushions, a light blue wool throw and an indigo patterned ottoman. When combined with white, especially in moldings, fabrics, and accessories, navy has a modern and classic appeal.
