When the interior needs to be simple, clean and airy, many designers use contrasts to create focal points. For example, this living room features a combination of light and dark shades, beiges and dark brown or even black.
Other ideas that can help create a successful blue living room design include the use of blue and white stripes that are always elegant. You can use the nautical print for the pillows for example or for the drapes and the rug. The blue also looks wonderful when combined with white walls and dark wood furniture.
The process is remarkably easy, though not without danger – fill a balloon with water, dip it up to the water level in melted wax and repeat. Go above the waterline and it might just pop. After a few times down and back, the exterior surface should be sufficiently waxed to form a rounded solid candle-worthy shape that can hold a small votive or tea light. After a few iterations, the resulting (cooled) candles should be tipped over and drained – and the water balloon remnants discarded. And to keep it level: setting the bottom on a solid surface during the process and the top after the balloon is removed should do the trick. For more science-minded types or slight thrill-seekers, these candles might make for a more festive holiday craft project than most. Full instructions at CandleTech.
These naturally beautiful green designs are set against stark white backgrounds to bring them out in sharp relief from their surroundings. Areas of denser moss on vertical surfaces also serve to compliment the horizontal fields of deep ocean blue carpeting throughout the spaces.
This is another rather small living room with an interior based on strong and striking contrasts. Pattern also plays an important role in this case and was used to create focal points throughout the room. The wooden staircase adds color but it also maintains the simplicity of the decor with the glass handrail.
