This open concept living space feels airy and inviting at the same time. White walls throughout the home keep the otherwise busy architecture, with lots of corners and hard edges, from being overwhelming or harsh. The look is softened by interesting but subdued colors on textiles. On the formal side of home style, with its moldings, moldings, and more moldings, this traditional space appears fresh and warm with its pinkish-white walls. Although the architectural details are definitely noticeable, they don’t overwhelm the space in more attention-grabbing colors. This bright space is ideal for family gatherings, entertaining, and music. Pale green trim is complemented by the white walls and lovely wood floors. Pale yellow wall mouldings highlight the height of the walls and the interesting curves as walls meet ceiling. Even with its white walls, the living room is simple, inviting, and casually colorful.
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.
So you‘re not made of money and can‘t necessarily afford to implement everything your heart desires after browsing post interior design websites and magazines. Welcome to reality. It can be a struggle, certainly, to implement a look or try to recreate the feeling of a space when your heart says one thing and your wallet says another. But the good news is, whether you‘re looking to invest in high-quality pieces or you‘re working within a squeaky-tight budget (or somewhere in between), there are ways you can achieve a sophisticated, stylish look. Let‘s look to the living room to see how to mix highs and lows and come up with something waaay better than middle-ground.
Cottage de Bordeaux by Boom Town features actual tree trunks used as decor elements in its living room. They keep the decor warm and balanced while also defining the dining space. The views from this spacious and lavish living room are extraordinary thanks to the exposure to the terrace and the floor-to-ceiling windows. JAM Architects designed it in a way that allows the space to capture the Australian views without compromising their clients’ privacy. It may not include a lot of furniture but this living room feels really cozy. The high floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of natural light and the open floor plan connects it to the other social spaces but not without maintaining a sense of intimacy.
