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.
Surrounded by beautiful woodland and parkland, the Cherry Tree Cottage in Kent has one of the most serene and chic living rooms we‘ve seen so far. The room opens to the outdoors and invites the views and the light inside and it balances out everything with a comfortable sectional accessorized with purple pillows. There‘s a residence in Hollywood Hills that proposes a different kind of living space. It has a low table at the center and classic Eames lounge chairs distributed around it. The result of such a design is a really casual, comfortable and relaxed social area. The modern Chalet Dent Blanche has a living space infused with wood elements, natural light and a few rustic details. The scenery and the views become part of the interior but don’t dictate the décor. The luxury chalet reflects the local architecture but with a modern twist.
Besides the typical architectural details such as the moldings and ceiling roses that some traditional homes still have, their interiors are also characterized by elegant decorations and accessories, including pendant lamps or even chandeliers, artwork on the walls and decorative flowers on the table. Of course, there are variations to these decors and different influences.
A small room with little natural light is definitely not ideal. Yet you can maximize the amount of light coming through the small window and the way it influences the decor by keeping the design simple and the room uncluttered. A staircase can become an inconvenient if it‘s part of a small living room. However, if you choose glass for the safety walls and a simple design overall, it can look less invasive. You can also use pattern to spread out accent details throughout the room. Paint the walls the same color as the ceiling to make a room feel larger. It‘s a neat trick you can use if you have a small room. You can also have furniture that fits in the same color palette. Another option is to create a uniform and cohesive décor to start with by using the same color for the walls and ceiling and a similar tone for the rug and then to add a little bit of contrast to the room with the furniture.
