Question by kelsie: how do i make a living room with dark blue carpet look modern?
We are moving into a new house, (renting so i don’t really want to replace the carpet) the carpet is darkish blue, its a long room, i really want to know how to give a modern cosy look, can paint the walls, not very good with designing rooms! any suggestions would be gratefully received!! thanks in advance!

Paint the walls taupe (grayish beige color) with a light cream trim.

    White walls, with some sort of dark blue squares in places. It’ll look really good.

    If you are going for a modern cozy look, you can get that by adding a big area rug on top of the blue carpet, one of the ikea sheepskin, or white faux fur. If you use silver or chrome accents in your lamps and mirrors maybe even add a mirrored table…the idea is to bring in light colors and reflect them. The texture and color of the rug, create a contrast in the part of the room you use most. The way that modern becomes cozy is through different textures, think suede, velvet, fur, linen, If you have a neutral sofa youre home free, add a few large living plants in white pots to anchor the corners and then work in an accent color, like a pop or red..an angora throw? Enjoy decorating your new house.
