Modern white with a splash of red

This modern, white design is ideal for both small and large rooms, giving a light and airy feel but adding a splash of red colour.

If you have a good size room try making a feature wall using Heartthrob paint by Sherwin Williams. A nice deep red that will look stunning with a white media cabinet featured against it. The media cabinet is ideal for your TV set up and will ‘pop’ against the red wall.

Keeping a modern crisp look, other walls feature a nice Alabaster White, again by Sherwin Williams, or any other white which has a clean look, even something verging on a white with a slight hint of grey will work fine.

Think of the floor

Flooring is a matter of choice, carpet, wood, vinyl, tiles, personally I like laminate or carpet in a living room and I find this grey laminate from Home Depot is a great choice for this style of room. Again to soften the wood we have selected a white rug which can be laid between your sofas.

White is not the best choice for a sofa if you have young children but this leather version has solid wood legs and according to the manufacturers will not scratch laminate flooring. Leather is also a lot easier to wipe down then a cloth sofa. Two of these sofas will fit in most average size lounges, if you are not blessed with a lot of space, then opt for one sofa and a chair, possibly in a contrasting colour, grey would work perfectly.

Light it up with more red

To bring some more red into the room we have opted for two different cushion covers. The first has a nice red, black, grey print on and the second is a deep red with a contrasting white pattern. Not only do they add colour but also texture and pattern, which is vital to balance out all of the elements.

If walls where the windows are positioned are in white alabaster then you can bring in some colour with red blackout curtains. These particular curtains are very reasonably priced and they will look stunning against the white walls.

Light up your room

A favourite addition to this lovely room is the choice of lighting. For the ceiling a stunning pendant light resembling the shape of a dandelion will add pattern to the walls during the evening. Can you see how we are also bringing in a flowery feel into the room as well? This also helps to soften the hard lines and cooler colours and brings some warmth into the room. Accent lighting is by way of two table lights with a red faux leather base and white shades.

Two side tables in glass white metallic and a coffee table which has a chrome base and a white gloss top are ideal for drinks, a book, magazines etc and no living room should be without one or two accent tables.

Finally it is time to put our feet up on this black ottoman. Quite a clever idea as it hides four serving trays in the top and is made from a durable midnight black leather, perfect for storage as well.
