Last but not least, add some life. Plants give your space a pop of green and something to make you smile when the weather is white out your window. A large plant in a basket will fill an empty corner. Small plants in concrete pots can give a little delight to a bookshelf or your coffee table. Those leafy greens will be the perfect final touch to your Scandinavian living room.
The grain and multi-colored characteristics of raw, exposed, and natural wood is a beautiful addition to the contemporary living room space. Not only does the neutral color of wood bring in warmth, but the inherent variation in the wood grain and shape itself brings in organic and nature-loving elements to the contemporary decor.
Burgundy and other wine “flavored“ colors are coming back as palette-able (haha) color options for contemporary spaces, particularly living rooms. Burgundy had its heyday in the 1990s but has disappeared for awhile. Its rich depth works well on larger living room pieces or even walls because it‘s somewhat neutral but with a hint of something more.
