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.
Layer in color, pattern, and texture. I‘m not talking about going all crazy in the throw pillow department or anything. But when there is visual interest in a space (as a result of tasteful layering and color choice), it automatically looks more sophisticated. Invest in higher-end staples – your sofa, for example – that you want to stand the test of time. Use budget-friendly accessories and accents to brighten up a neutral living room. Mix and match! Hide some carefully chosen generic pieces (read: Ikea) within your more expensive designer pieces to fool the eye into reading everything as high-end. Take this a step further, and customize the lower-end bits to make them original and unique.
The desire to be close to nature expressed by the clients led Fernanda Marques Arquiteto Asociados to design the living room for Loft 24-7 with stone walls, natural materials, organic colors and huge windows that open the space to the outdoors. In addition to floor-to-ceiling windows, the living room that Rolf Ockert Design created as part of the Bronte House project also has a skylight and a continuous row of highlight windows that offer 360 degree views of the stunning surroundings. This chic New York City home by Casamanara may not have super spacious rooms but it definitely doesn‘t lack character. The living area, the kitchen and the dining space are all part of the same open zone and there‘s not a lot of extra space between them. A patterned area rug helps delimitate the functions and the diverse accent colors create focal points throughout.
Try a symmetrical approach to change the perspective. Two matching armchairs placed side by side mimic the sofa and the coffee table and the shelving unit tie everything together. Also, the black and white combo suits the room really well. To save space and to also make the room feel more spacious, incorporate open shelves anywhere you can. In this case, the fireplace is wonderfully framed by shelves. We love the way the wooden ceiling stands out and the fact that the lighting fixtures don‘t overwhelm the room. This room is actually a multi-purpose space and it’s amazing how everything fits here when there‘s so little space to work with. There’s a work desk in the corner near the door, a dining table with chairs and a sofa. Shelves were integrated above the door and windows which is a very smart idea.
