Bold Living Rooms
Showcasing someone’s personality through their interior isn’t entirely new to the industry, however many homeowners are leaning into the bold and eclectic interior styles lately. Creating a bold interior that combines a number of different styles, colors and patterns give a huge amount of personality and visual interest to the space.
Let’s take a closer look at how you can successfully create a Bold Living Room in this Shop the Look feature!
How to Recognize a Bold Living Room
A bold living room is generally a very colorful one that may have multiple colors used and additional patterns to supplement this too. It is the combination of colors and bold patterns that makes an interior seen as “bold”.
In terms of which color scheme to use here – any combination goes. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to creating a bold interior! Generally speaking, a bold living room will feature two or more colors that are contrasting to each other, rather than complimentary. There may also be a combination of different metals, eclectic accessories, and different furniture styles. Incorporate different textures to really make the space pop.
Bold interiors aren’t for the faint-hearted. While it may seem plausible to mix anything and everything into the room, bold living rooms are actually extremely well thought out.
Many will associate bold interiors as a result of design from the 70s or 80s, particularly the floral or patterned wallpapers, dark wood trims, and colorful carpets. However, the bold living room design has actually come as a result of emerging trends over the last 10+ years – a modern take on 70’s/80’s interiors.
Bold living rooms are for those who LOVE bold colors, different patterns, and playful design – almost anything goes! Above all these spaces should showcase your vibrant personality.
This style often includes:
- Bright and bold color combinations
- Bold patterns, often in contrast to the colors used
- Different textures – velvet, cotton, shiny metals
