Weave together two shades. If you don’t want to mess around with different shapes and styles of seating in your living room, you can always go down the mix-and-match color route within a coordinated range. A flexible modular-style sofa enables you to combine shades, patterns and textures within the same seating arrangement. Here, a sprinkling of yellow in an otherwise all-gray scheme injects a lively modern tempo and works amazingly well against the grand backdrop, as the simplicity lets the architectural details shine.
Dabble with vintage hues. This pretty blend of chalky colors and vintage styles is spot-on if you don’t want a seating mix that’s too self-consciously eclectic. The pleasing blend of buttermilk, peppermint and coral colors weave in a considerable mix of patterns, but there’s harmony in the united colors. The green of the far sofa is picked up in the pillows of its neighbor, while the coral of the armchair is echoed in the subtle print on the larger sofa.
Work a white mix. Eschewing the traditional three-piece suite can be a much simpler design strategy than you might think. One way to create a cohesive yet eclectic look is to harness a mishmash of chairs, sofas and daybeds from different eras and in different styles and materials but the same color.
The owners of this modern family room have combined a classic Eames chaise with a modern daybed and a simple sofa, but all in shades of white for a harmonious mood. White will always create an easy-on-the-eye look, but make sure you use hard-wearing materials and washable or wipeable fabrics if yours is a busy family home.
