Happy Valentine's Day! Today, we're sharing a soft and pretty blush living room that's a dream come true! You can make a room colorful and fun without a lot of bright colors, and we're showing you how...

Add interest with texture! Color isn't the only way to add interest to a space. When you want to keep things more monochromatic, using texture is a really fun way to add warmth and dimension. Here, we used lots of cozy textures through throw pillows, tassels, the rug, and floor pillows. We also used lots of sleek wood, glass, metal, and greenery. The natural elements (wood and plants) help add warmth to the space. (P.S. Using texture as your unifying element is a great way to also make sure that everything feels cohesive!)

Sophisticated pops! We always want a little bit of color in a space! When picking pops of color, use more sophisticated ones like a rich mustard or dusty rose like we did here. You can also paint the walls a soft, neutral color. Even though a lot of minimalist spaces have white walls, you can keep the calm feel with the warmth of a pale color. You can opt for a light cream or rose and the space will still feel fresh, crisp, and clean.
