Use light colors on the walls and floor. Softer hues can make a cramped room feel bigger and brighter.
Larette designed this contemporary California farmhouse with a blue-gray living room that opens up to the outside. The soft color works with the bright natural light.
Using a neutral palette throughout a small living room is one of the best ways to push back the walls. The eye can roam freely through a neutral palette, so the space feels more expansive.
In this small living area, the leggy chair doesn't obstruct views of the passage or the floor, so the space feels more open. The metal and glass coffee table also consumes very little visual space.
Mix cool neutrals, such as silvery blues and grays, with warmer browns and tans to create cheerfully pleasing living room designs. This neutral living room decorating idea uses blues and browns to achieve a pretty balance. Though used minimally, pretty blue accents appear as unfussy patterns that contribute water-music notes, which subtly further this room's nautical leanings and counterbalance the room's weightier brown furnishings and architectural details.
At 29" high, this attractive cedar planter is the perfect height for easy growing, eliminating the need to stoop, bend, kneel and reach. It's a generous 10" deep so you can grow big plants like tomatoes and root crops like carrots. With 16 square feet of growing space, there's plenty of room for multiple crops, yielding a generous harvest. Set up one or more of these rectangular beds around the edge of your patio to create a convenient kitchen garden, or fill them with flowers for a stunning display. Like our other cedar raised beds, the sides are held in place with our sleek and sturdy aluminum corners. There's a false floor made of cedar slats, set 10" down from the top so there's plenty of root space for vegetables and flowers. Excess water drains through slats; vents in the sides allow air to circulate and excess moisture to evaporate.
