Refresh! 2 updated living room styles

Give your living room a mini-makeover in a day without putting a hole in your budget. See what we bagged up to bring home two different looks.

IKEA has living room decor on a budget, and it can fit in an YPPERLIG carrier bag or a FRAKTA carrier bag. Whether you want a style that’s light with pastels or bold with black and white patterns, textiles, lamps, art and decorations can set the look.

For pastel room decor, IKEA has options like square GULLKLOCKA cushion cover in soft, yellow chenille. Its bright pop of colour adds a contrast to clean whites and light pinks, blues and greys on cushion covers, curtains, vases, plant pots and more.

Pastels and a colourful pop. Lighten things up by building a base of soft pastels (pinks, blues, greys) and clean whites with throws, vases, baskets—even plant pots. Choose an eye-catching, bright piece to work as a contrast. Artwork can be a big help to unite the colour palette and style.

For black and white living room decor, IKEA has options like 100% cotton DVÄRGBJÖRK meter fabric in white and black. Its Scandinavian modern pattern has contemporary checks and mixes well with cushion covers, throws, table lamps, candlesticks and more.

Patterns and a monochrome mood. Go bold and start with graphic patterns you love—hello, modern checks. Stick to two or three for a calm feel. Match the pattern colours on textiles, small decor, lighting, etc. With crisp black and white, use accents like rich blues to relax the room.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
