Once the seating selection of your couch is decided then the material used on your couch needs to be considered as well. If you have young family with child or children or you have pets then you may want to consider the ease in which you can clean your furniture. Therefore, you may want to consider selecting a leather couch or micro suede. Both materials have been popular due to the ease in cleaning. Whereas upholstered couches provide more color and pattern selection but are not as easy to clean, and usually are not stain resistant. Keeping these options in mind helps in decorating your home with beautiful decor that provides both style and comfort.
Instead, balance it out with a mix of rich and subtle neutral shades of color, with perhaps just one or two pops of color in the rest of your furniture, such as a sunny yellow sofa or a few colorful ornaments on your oak bookshelf.
A vital element when decorating your living room with a contemporary theme is your wall treatments. For this design style the colors can make or break the look - consider adding shades of browns and black or a sharp black and white look to the room. Try using a neutral color paint on the walls, or if you want something different go with a leather or suede wall covering.
