Personalize your stuff to add character and achieve a custom look. For example, a box-store bookcase (like this Billy from Ikea) can look like a built-in with a bit of moulding and paint. Reupholstering tired old furniture in modern, vibrant fabric is another sure-fire way to give a space a high-end look.
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.
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.
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.
