Living Room. Monday , February 12th , 2018 - 02:33:05 AM
If you'd like some variety, something a little different, for your Halloween treating this year, consider these ideas: 1. McDonald's coupons. What child doesn't like McDonald's...enough said. 2. One older couple in our neighborhood gave out an unusual treat. They decorated their livingroom spookily and took a polaroid snapshot of each child posed in front of the decorations. The picture was the treat. Would you be surprised to learn the kids lined up down the sidewalk? It became so popular we neighbor parents contributed monetarily to their film packs. Note: this couple took great care to ensure children's safety and also to protect their own reputations. Their livingroom was located immediately off a large foyer. They kept their front door wide open. Their triple front window curtains were left open with bright lighting so nothing could be construed as improper. Finally, since a polaroid camera was used, no pictures were retained.
Alternatively, broad stripes painted in a subtle variation of the leading wall color would have the same optical result, but without the change of texture. Effective neutral color combinations for the living room should maintain the decorative flow. For example, use shades of soft brown and beige together, with darker shades of the same colors emphasis. Alternatively, define the contrast between the ultimate, absolute neutrals of black and white, for drama. Mix the textured tones found in tobacco, ecru, and oatmeal matte surfaces and materials to promote a sense of harmony.
The neutral living room is greatly enhanced by the clever use of variety in ornament and texture. It is likely that this room will contain more decorative object than any other, and neutral surroundings make a great backdrop for them. Ornamental details are very useful when a change of textural emphasis is needed, as they add interest to the scheme using a medium other than color. Place textured elements in juxtaposition to their natural neighbors for a tactile finish, such as the partnership of polished stone against sub linen, rough wood against devoure velvet, and wicker against muslin.
