In the living room, bright salmon-color throw pillows are balanced by neutral walls and furniture as well as accessories set in cool turquoise and burnished bronze. Similar to the rest of the apartment, the living room also benefits from a variety of textures. Here, a shag-inspired throw pillow adds textural contrast to the sofa’s other throw pillows. Apartment Decor Tip: When painting walls isn't an option, throw pillows can be a substitute color source.
Sometimes, a single design element can make all the difference. Take this eclectic study, for example. By adding a chic scalloped detail to the top of the row of bookshelves, the space becomes instantly layered and interesting. Imagine the room without this shapely element, and the overall look is a little more expected. With it, though, the room comes alive with character./
