Those wanting to move away from an overdose of white can also try out lighter shades of gray which give the same aesthetic as darker shades of white.
The sofa is no longer a monochromatic addition and different vivacious hues can be coupled with neutral modular pieces to bring in the best of both worlds. With these innovative and uber-comfy modular designs decorating ease does come in more ways than one.
LED strip lighting smart floating shelves and large credenza-styled contemporary units complete a living room idea that effortlessly flows into the kitchen and the dining space.
Wood and white is another look that looks great in the small living space and allows it to blend in with the kitchen and dining area next to it with ease. Make sure that you introduce elements that give character to you home and do not stick to a decorating theme that is just too sterile.
Contrast is still a major part of the monochromatic living space and adding a hint of black here and there to the white living space helps immensely. This can come in the form of accent pillows with black piping dark metallic window frames or even a simple striped rug in black and white.
Also modular units allow you to compose corner sectionals that exactly match with your floor plan and make most of the available space. You no longer have to struggle with making that slightly larger or inconvenient sectional that seems a bit out of place in your small living area.
