The same duo also designed this luxury residence in Cape Town which features an expansive living area on the ground floor with panoramic views, calming cove lighting and a color palette based on beige and brown accents. The Holy Cross residence by Thomas Balaban Architecte has a really simple living room. The decor is somewhat austere but really comfortable due to the strategically chosen furniture, accessories and colors. The living room colors also influence the rest of the home‘s decor. But not all modern living room decorating ideas are so bright and open. This one, for example, is in a Moscow apartment designed by M17 and in a way it resembles a hallway. A sculptural wall hides a variety of other functions, leaving the space simple. However, the lack of natural light can’t be overlooked.
High ceilings, lots of large windows and a diverse but balanced color palette make this living room by McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture really special and enjoyable. It‘s linked to the open kitchen and dining area in a beautiful North Carolina residence surrounded by tall trees. The black and white combo that the Pleysier Perkins team employed when designing this Australian home is complemented by vibrant red accents and grey tones. The wood features are refreshing and come as an unexpected element in this case. The disposition of the furniture featured here is a bit unusual. Studio O. envisioned the living room as a cozy entertainment area able to accommodate large groups in a comfortable, casual and elegant atmosphere. The fireplace is built into the partition wall and can also be enjoyed from the dining area.
The house designed by Dualchas Architects in Skye, Scotland has twp social areas separated from the kitchen and the dining area by purple wall dividers. One is a bit larger and the other and serves as the main living space. It has a white corner sectional, open shelves and a colorful striped area rug that coordinates a bit with the colors visible through the glass wall. Five beautiful villas were designed in Bodrum, Turkey by Aytac Atchitects. They are each unique but they are all influences by the tranquil views and the surrounding landscape. Charming and mysterious at night, bright and sunny during the day, the living spaces impress with their sophisticated simplicity and attention to details. Modern living room interiors are often a combination of styles, sometimes featuring subtle industrial accents, enough to give the room character without overwhelming it. A good example is the Coffou Cottage by Brininstool + Lynch where traditional and industrial elements fuse together in a modern setting.
Find ways to create combos when choosing your furniture. Take this design for example. The sofa fits perfectly into that little nook in the wall unit and the open shelves let the room feel more spacious and less cluttered. Choosing the right colors for the room can be the thing that changes the whole perspective. Paint the walls white and pick furniture that features light colors. It‘s a nice idea to also have some contrasts but avoid dark shades by any means. If the room is small, do you really need bulky furniture? Turn the room into a cozy seating area and focus your efforts on creating a harmonious decor while using as little furniture as possible without compromising on style and comfort.
