Struggling to get some colour in the room without having rug. please suggest cushion colours and other decor to brighten up this room.
I know it was expensive but I would change the blind to stop the sameness. Timber warms even if you added timber frames it would warm up the space. At the moment you have all the basics but it’s lacking warmth and that homey feeling. A ton more coloured or textured cushions, a colourful blanket draped. Grey is the overall scheme and is a good start but to me it’s like a blank canvas waiting to be painted on
I think you are on the right track with the colour scheme you’ve chosen. You need some art on the walls. What style do you like?
leather..here there everywhere..☺

@bigreader i like to modern and minimalistic style.
I would consider painting the walls in a colour chosen from your colour pallet or at least the TV wall, I would try the 4th colour below the basket..
Art on walls will really liven things up. I would start there and add cushions to suit.
What about burgundy and spice colours? ...and yeah I'd totally add a rug. But I don't think you want a rug? The taupe is like a grey with a bit of yellow/ochre tone in it, so i think the yellow works.But honestly anything goes with it, so the colour scheme has to be the other decor, if that makes sense. It basically means anything! Have you tried playing with the colour palette generator websites?Take a photo with colours you like and voila! colour scheme. I can almost guarantee the taupe will go with anything.https://www.canva.com/colors/color-palette-generator/ This is just the first one that came up googling but there are lots!Just see the variety and that have taupish colours!Now I agree art would help!have you considered glass? Glass bowls, vases and glass sculptures could help bring some warmth and colour but still suit the sleek minimalist style. Or photography? Use photos you like and match colours to them. photos in heavy black frames suit the minimal style. Abstract art with bold colour ( or even colour field art) could really look good too, but still be modern.
I found an image that shows the art and cushions matching
or alternatively ditch colour altogether.... you could go graphic black and white monochrome.
Or avoid colour and instead add TEXTURE. minimal houses that stick to neutral colours always use layers of different textures and textiles to create warmth. Think chunky throws, fluffy rugs, crochet bowls, baskets around pot plants. The sleek lines and hard angles are softened by natural shapes and organic textures.
This a basic look at what adding colour to the walls could do. A large neutral natural textured rug would also be good. I should have taken the yellow cushion out as it doesn't work for me Is this a Media room?
Your lounge is lovely but I find the room has too many cold hard surfaces and would personally add full height and width curtains behind the lounge and any other windows to soften it, plus a large rug, large art work and a larger Timber TV unit, this would soften the edges and is what I would do if it was mine. But then you must do what you would want,
Beautiful sofa, I would stick with neutrals for a really classy look, textured cushions , throws artwork could look stunning with what you have. Keeping it neutral always looks beautiful and never dates, if you really want colour pick your favourite and add it in a feature cushion.
@julie herbert thank you !!do you think this combo will fall into neutrals.
They are gorgeous
Yes that looks good. keep an eye out for a comfy chunky throw blanket to keep nearby.
I think because i have mostly all black furniture like tv unit, book stand and dinning table this pillows will definety go well. thoughts @fianou luca and @julie herbert!!
yes I think they are really nice!
after last tiund shopping looks like it working better @fianou luca @julie herbert . Thanks every one for your help and opinion.
You're most welcome! It's got a lovely relaxed calm style! Some framed photos on the walls could look good, especially nature pictures.
wall frames are next project😊
Absolutely gorgeous, cushions and throw beautiful, keeping it neutral really shows off your beautiful couch.
@julie herbert and @fianou luca which shape coffee table we go with this room and which material??
I like your organic theme. These coffee/side tables from bunnings would work well as they are a Natural terrazzo round stone top, and the black frame would tie in with your TV cabinet. They are so well priced too! i would go one coffee table and a side table next to each other to visually fill out the space
I'd go for something in a chunky timber. i don't think it matters what shape as long as it comfortable fits the space and you can get around it easily.
You could try glass to highlight your beautiful table, or a nest that you can move to use as a side table, love the cushions and throw, beautiful.
Thank you I love the first one!! will try to get some thing close to that. At last pillows are sorted😃
Life interiors sell this gorgeous one, it’s the Gigi .
I love the timber and glass tables and it's great to see different aspects of how the lounge sits within the room. From experience, hard floors, glass and family can be a dangerous combination.
Soft fabric ottomans in your choice of size shape colour and pattern , (I love tribal Rugs, ) that can also provide storage would be my choice with a tray placed on top to hold any coffee mugs
