Obviously, depending on the mood you’re trying to create, there are tons of colors to choose from. For a serene and relaxing ambiance, go with pastel colors like peach or white. If you want the room to feel extra warm and cozy you can paint the walls brown. If you like strong contrasts, then choose stripes. The black and white combo is always nice. Then there’s also the option of using a vibrant color like red, orange or green if you want the room to look fresh and energetic.
As for the different color combinations that include gray, purple is always a good choice. Red, blue, brown or yellow are also nice options to take into consideration. And since gray is nothing but black and white combined, you can also use it with the classical black and white and maybe with some subtle touches of red. Even though gray is a color with character, it’s still considered a neutral so a complementary tone is always welcomed. To avoid a dull interior, you can try playing with textures and patterns.
Hanging wall and flush floor units are more physically connected to wall surfaces, but the shelving and cabinets set in the center of a room are arguably even more architectural. These serve as spatial dividers and room separators, semi-permeable barriers that act like partition walls as well as storage areas. Crafting decor objects is a holiday tradition that some might find a bit dull for more adventurous designs lovers … unless (perhaps) it involves hot wax, a water balloon and the slight risk of having it all blow up in your face.
Sometimes the contrast between old and new can also be used as a focal point. This living room, for example, has a predominant contemporary decor but also features a few rustic elements and antique touches that make it more charming.
Furniture taken out of context can be misleading – sure, it looks great in the pictures but what will it do for (or to) an actual living space in a real room of your home? These sizable shelving units are as much about making space as they are about storing books and other odds and ends. Most importantly, they are shown in creative interior design contexts rathre than posed against blank white backgrounds.
