Through the views may not be extraordinary, the huge windows featured by this living room in Toronto designed by Studio JCI are justified in this case because they’re the only source of natural light. To maximize the openness of the space, the color scheme was kept simple and neutral. One of the best characteristics of modern interior design is the clean and fresh look which can be obtained through a variety of strategies. In the case of the Good Residence by Crone Partners this strategy included the use of simple and pure colors, vibrant contrasts and well-defined shapes without unnecessary features. Featuring an impressive structure and design especially as seen from above, this Sunset Strip residence is quite simplistic in terms of interior décor. The living room, for instance, is modest and not nearly as dramatic as one might expect. Yet this doesn’t make it any less extraordinary.
Designed to serve as the ideal entertainment and conversation space, this living room by Richard Meier is situated on the 9th floor of an iconic building in London from where it offers sweeping views through the floor-to-ceiling windows that surround it. Most modern living rooms are part of an open floor plan which also includes the dining area. Here, the two are beautifully positioned in a clean design with clear distinctions between functions. The large sectional defines the seating area with its shape. SAOTA architects and OKHA Interiors worked together to design this spectacular residence in Cape Town which has a spacious living room that can open up to the west and the east completely, becoming a sort of pavilion. It’s one of the many modern living room ideas the architects used in their projects.
The Edge House by Mobius Architects is a modern urban home in a mountain setting and, as a result, has a design which reflects that. The living room is centered around a modern fireplace and offers panoramic views through its floor-to-ceiling windows. Long curtains can break the connection with the outdoors, transforming this space into an intimate nook. When the views are as stunning as in the case of this Cyprus residence by Vardastudio Architects & Designers, the interior design is often kept simple. Earthy colors, clean lines and a pair of yellow accent chairs for the living rooms is a great starting point. Glass surrounds this long and narrow living room exposing it to the beautiful outdoors and establishing a strong connection between the zones. The décor here is consistent with that of the rest of the residence that SBCH Architects designed in South Carolina. The building has a glass facade which defines the main social areas.
Layer textures to create an inviting and unique decor. Notice the subtle orange accents that complement the light color palette and the texture on the walls, the rug and the way all these subtle hints merge to form a welcoming room. Layout is very important when you‘re dealing with a small space. It;s why we find this traditional living room very charming. The fireplace takes center stage, with two armchairs framing it and a 2-seater sofa in front of it. It‘s the perfect combination. Although this room is only wide enough to incorporate a three-seater sofa, somehow it doesn’t feel tiny. The large windows and the sliding glass doors that lead outdoors definitely help but the key is the simplicity of the design.
