They say chess is the sport for mind and that it goes a long way back in history, being played by the Orient kings. I love chess and so do many other people, some of them even being so passionate about it that they want to reflect their passion in the way they arrange their homes, so they want to arrange a chess-themed living room. It’s not so hard to do that, as you can find enough chess-themed objects on the Internet, in the online stores, but you must be careful not to exaggerate and obtain an unwanted result.
It’s the perfect balance between white and blue and the shade of blue is perfectly chosen to create an almost surreal living room design. At least I thought I was in heaven when I saw the two pictures. The immaculate white walls contrast in a pleasant way with the blue of the curtain and the couches are both blue and white , sitting on a wooden flooring that is unusual in color but still remarkable. Even though I have never seen blue flooring before, I must admit it is not artificial at all, but looks pretty nice.
Red is a very powerful color which, in large quantities, can easily become overwhelming. It’s a color we often stay away from when decorating our homes and that’s not really fair. If used in the right proportions and balanced with the rest of the décor, red can actually be a very cheerful and elegant color. So let’s see how that would work out. Red walls are a very daring option. But you have to be careful in this case because it’s easy to overdo it. If you paint all the walls in the room red, then the rest of the décor should remain neutral. To make the ambiance a bit less striking, perhaps a single red accent wall would be a better option.
The first rule in arranging the furniture in a livingroom is to see where the wall plugs are and to avoid covering them with any furniture. If you do that it will only make things more complicated, as you will not have easy access to the outlet and you will have to use extendable ones and this way you increase the hazard risk. So avoid covering them. The second tip is to spread the furniture in an even manner all over the livingroom. Avoid placing all the furniture in one place, for example one one side of the room or near the same wall, as it will be totally asymmetric and it will give the viewer the impression of a “sinking ship”. You remember the “Titanic”.
