The living room designed by Nico van der Meulen Architects for House Ber in South Africa captures the simplicity of this style and the beauty of the surroundings with its openness and transparency. The decor is based on a series of light vs dark contrasts complemented by small yellow touches distributed around the room. The leather-covered accent wall is a key characteristic of this living room in Moscow by Aleksandra Fedorova Bureau. The wall coordinates with other design elements such as the sofa, ottomans and area rug. A beautiful touch is the series of ivory touches used in the room and the fact that the dining space is positioned by the windows. A fireplace can totally change the ambiance in a room. Take the NNS Apartment designed by Mudrogelenko in Saint Petersburg. Without the fireplace the living room would feel a lot less inviting, especially given the colors and finishes used throughout.
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.
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.
The living is the most important part of the house, regardless of its size. It‘s a social area where guests are invited and where you spend most of your time when you‘re home. In most modern homes, the living room and the kitchen share an open plan which is a very smart idea. They are both social areas and by combining them you gain more space.
