If you’re looking for a neutral living room that has both sleek and simple furniture, as well as accented shutters that contrast the space, then you’ve come to the right place. We have plenty of ideas that will help you achieve the look you desire.
For starters, consider using a light-colored sofa in your living room. This will help create an airy feel in the space. You can then add in some accent chairs in a darker hue to provide contrast. Then, to bring in some visual interest, hang shutters on the windows. You can leave them open during the day to let in natural light, or close them at night for privacy.
Finish off the space by adding in some greenery, like a potted plant or a vase of flowers. This will help bring life into the room and make it feel more inviting.
