Are you juggling between the thought of comfort and sophistication? Well, your living space can be both inviting and plush. Check out these trendy and eclectic accents complete with comfortable furniture that lets you stretch out in style and comfort.
Play With Color
One of the most important aspects that kills or makes a room is wall colors. You canít have multiple colors in the same room. It will give an unorganized and cluttered look to your living room. So, keep one as a neutral color and select the other as the primary color. Now your furnishings like carpets, drapes, wall accessories all should be complimenting this color. For example your neutral colors is white and primary color brown then have your wall colors as off white, your curtains as brown. Your sofa color should be once more in the shade of brown with a low center table in dark wood color of black. Try to keep the rug and sofa color as the same. If you want to pop up pillows then they should once more be of a light color with brown stripes or design.
Mix and Match Materials
The materials that you use should also gel with each other rather than compete with each other for getting attention. If you are using soft materials like rich velvet upholstery then your solid surfaces should be hard and shiny. It is always best to have a big, generous chair put in a snug corner to create an intimate reading spot. You can also go for a chaise lounge to get that style and comfort element teamed together.
Invite Nature Inside

Water bamboo can give a stylish and great look to your interiors without really your looking out for it every day. With a bit of sunlight and little water it can go unattended for days. Or you can also set up a small terrarium with a bowl of fish. This will add life to the room and also add some light reflection to the dark walls, if your home is receiving hardly any light.
Deck the Walls
We all want our walls to look pretty. But if you add just everything you want on your walls, then it will give a much unorganized look. So, if you have an accent wall, have one large piece of display on the wall. Or you can have a photo collage to hang. Your wall hangings should complement each other rather than give a display of your different styles all put together. You can think of different themes for different rooms.
Donít ignore corners
If corners have irritated you so far, let them inspire you now. Little corners around the house give you the opportunity to give personal touch to those left out corners. Turn them into reading zones, with a bit of cozy lighting and one piece of comfortable furniture.
