Colors for a living room include deep reds, golds, caramel, beige, browns. The idea is same as bedrooms, light-colored walled matched with dark tone furniture or dark walls with light-colored furniture. You can even try a different look by matching purple with an offset brown shade. Bring in bamboo or cane furniture with African-styled candle stands, lamp shades with animal prints, pillows covered in animal print pillow cases, etc.
If you read the views of interior designers in any of the lifestyle magazines, you will find that most of them recommend against the use of bright colors on the exteriors of the house. According to them, toned-down colors are ideal for this purpose, as they ensure that the house does not stand out from the rest of the houses in the neighborhood. If you believe in the same philosophy, then while selecting the colors, see to it that they are of a lighter shade.
The exterior of these houses is totally subtle, with nude wall paints, uncovered and uncolored shingles, and clapboards that turn to gray or earthy colors with prolonged exposure to the natural elements like sun, breeze, and water. Another characteristic of these houses is that even though they have the cottage style decorating, they do not contain the front porch or veranda. The modern variants however have those chic sunrooms at one side of the house. Still, the main focal point of these houses is their front door, with its intricate carving and eye-catching colors. On the other hand, the windows of these houses have shutters that are either painted white or in the same color of the doors. Some other exterior decorative items include a white picket fence, steep roof with overhang, detached garage, and outdoor shower!
