When outdoor seating has seen better days, or if you’re no longer in love with the style, redirect attention elsewhere, say, to a perky throw pillow. Choose an outdoor pillow like the Chad Outdoor Throw Pillow, $49 from Grandin Road, which will stand up to the elements — it dries in just 24 hours and the cover is removable for easy cleaning.
Scour the close-out bins at fabric stores to find designer textiles in patterns and colors that you love and that fit with your furniture. Then follow DIY instructions to make easy-sew pillows that add a pop of color to complete a room, says Atlanta interior designer Steve McKenzie.
A cover over this corner sectional keeps the lounge space extra cozy. Black and white throw pillows echo the black and white sections of the sofa. Speaker throw pillows add a musical vibe pairing perfectly with the boom box wall art. Black carpet and white walls finish the fully two-toned space.
Alternating black and white cushions give this plush sectional a checked look. Speaker throw pillows add a hip and personal touch of decoration to the sitting space. A mosaic tile statue adds more unique flair to the inviting room.
The living room design is light, airy and contemporary. To achieve a similarly airy feel, try working with a restrained color palette and bring in pops of color with accessories. Mixing patterns with textiles and art adds another layer of interest to the design.
