Style Guide: Denim Wash Living Room

Sometimes when you are trying to sort out a new design for your interior, you end up with something completely different than originally intended. Case in point: today’s classic yet contemporary look with mixed textures started out as a quest to work a room around a faux zinc finish side table. Keep an open mind when you redesign a room, because you never know what surprises will show themselves to you during the design process.

To finish off your room, opt out of the matching club chairs to avoid overpowering your small space. Instead, try a pair of Uttermost armchairs from the Nala collection. They have a subtle fingerprint pattern that adds another hint of texture to your room. Place the black drum between the pair of chairs to perfectly complement to this classical and casual room.

When thinking about wall color, keep the tones more neutral— plain gray is perfect, or try a single feature wall in black. Spruce up the neutrals with deep bold reds and even add a bit of white and deep blue. Your walls shouldn’t outshine the furniture, but rather complement it.

A set of matted black and white photos would look very striking with this set, or add some color to the walls in the form of artwork in a blend of red, white, and blue. Take your color hints from the throw pillows you choose to accent your sofa and chairs. Take to heart that less is more and your room will look like it was professionally designed.
