What would you do w/this color scheme?
My mind is pretty made up when it comes to my living rm scheme & how I'll work it. It's similar to:
Here's my inspiration piece:
Here's my layout:
My sofa is going to be along the same wall as the entrance door & the settee to the wall on the left w/a nice coffee table.
My question is: What the heck do I do with that back wall? I'm only putting a very small 20" TV in there b/c this is more of a formal living room. I wouldn't mind a light secretary....then I'm clueless. I know that's where everyone's eyes will be when they come in the house & I'm just stumped.
Also, what would you do w/the walls & furniture if that was your inspiration piece?
Lastly, if my sofa is going to be charcoal gray, and I have glass & white furniture....what color furniture is going to go up that back wall? Black?
I also thought about accessorizing w/a light blue so maybe some colored furniture?
Please help! Thanks!
Oh wow! I LOVE the gray living room set up. Where did you find that link? I'd like to buy that coffee table. Thanks!!!
I'm keeping my living room coral. I just like the picture arrangement & coffee table in the gray living room. :)

Try a cool mirror such as: http://www.seattlehomesmag.com/images/2009/March20...
It gives the illusion of a larger room and it looks cool!
Also, You could put a long accent table with candles and decor on it along the wall. Maybe some art too.
Another suggestion: The couch doesn't have to be along the wall. Try putting a large rug in the center of the room and have your couch on the edge of the rug, along with some accent chairs and a coffee table.
There are so many things you can add to a living room! Try a piano (quite expensive, but a good investment) or a large piece of awesome artwork! In my living room we have a giant art piece made of bottle caps that looks like a person from far away. We get Complements on it all the time!

You could actually take a bit from my question you just answered and add curtains. They're not just for windows and if hung high they can make a room look bigger. Maybe some nice white curtains would go well with the black wall or just about any other color would look great.

Alright well I think a good color scheme is coral, white, and bright
red. Maybe some shade of brown?
Here is a nice coffee table:
Sofas: (There are some other colors for some of the sofas)
Storage Unit: (Still an essential even though it's not necessary)
Rug: (This was a completely random find)
Lamp: (do you need a lamp?)

You could always stagger pictures and quotes, etc. on the wall.
