Green plant life, in small and large doses alike, offer an inherent freshness and softness to the contemporary living room, regardless of many other factors. Place a larger potted plant in the corner of the living room, or a smaller potted green on the coffee table or bookshelf.
Some people like color in smaller snippets, so for them to paint their living rooms in floor-to-ceiling shades of some color probably goes against their comfort grain. Mint, with its fresh, invigorating crispness, makes a lovely addition to the living room, but you can use it in whatever proportions make you happy, whether that’s a single mint-colored piece or mint paint all around. The effect is still light and friendly, which is a lovely balance to strike in any living room.
A touch of marble in any room brings that bit of luxury you’ve been looking for. You can install these marble shelves on a Saturday morning and have them filled with your favorite summer decor by afternoon.
