A mix of warm neutrals and cool grays make this living room—conversation area, both chic and inviting. The contrast of the gray wall against the warm furniture pieces in the foreground help define the seating area and show off the interesting detail on the wall behind it.
If you have wood floors, it’s key to think about how you’ll balance it with other wood tones. The easiest way is to add a rug or two to help break things up visually. This is also great if you’re not keen on the wood grains of your floors; eye-catching rugs that play into the colors and patterns of your furniture will help draw attention away from the flooring. In this living room, without the rug, the wood of the floor and the furnishings would have felt overwhelming. Instead, the rug helps even out the wood textures throughout and anchor the space with a cohesive look.
Who doesn't love a moody use of color in the right space? This living room mixes warm earth-toned decor with jewel-toned walls to create a refreshing sense of style that's truly a horse of different (and exciting) color!
To create a space that feels super cohesive, try pairing furniture and wall art that reflect one another in shape and form. In this image, a circular end table with verticle lines has abstract art with circles made of verticle lines above it. The shape of the camel-colored armchair is reminiscent of the shape in the picture behind it, and the colors of the room accessories match those of the small abstract images. The overall effect feels organized, harmonious, and charming.
Many people imagine a boho vibe when they hear the word eclectic paired with interior design. But this refreshingly modern take on eclectic interior design proves that the style isn't always about rattan furniture and hanging plants. In this living room, a traditional rug adds vintage appeal to a tasteful mix of contemporary and mid-century modern furnishings, creating a look that's both sharp and inviting.
Since California Modern style is all about relaxed comfort, that should be a primary focus in the bedroom. So, we opted for an upholstered bed, cozy bed linens, and a plush, textural rug to set the tone. With its focus on comfort, this bedroom leans a little more rustic, but the furniture forms keep it balanced with modern. Overall, the larger furniture pieces ground this space in relatability, warmth, and comfort.
Taking a step back to see how all of the pieces in this room come together helps to create flow. The pieces include different textures and colors, which makes for a homey feel. The rustic charm flows throughout the whole space.
