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.
High ceilings, lots of large windows and a diverse but balanced color palette make this living room by McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture really special and enjoyable. It‘s linked to the open kitchen and dining area in a beautiful North Carolina residence surrounded by tall trees. The black and white combo that the Pleysier Perkins team employed when designing this Australian home is complemented by vibrant red accents and grey tones. The wood features are refreshing and come as an unexpected element in this case. The disposition of the furniture featured here is a bit unusual. Studio O. envisioned the living room as a cozy entertainment area able to accommodate large groups in a comfortable, casual and elegant atmosphere. The fireplace is built into the partition wall and can also be enjoyed from the dining area.
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.
Also, the person that needs to work in the kitchen can also actively participate at the discussions and activities in the living room.Having a living room that‘s spacious is important but the interior design is also crucial. The living room needs to be bright so the windows need to be large and well positioned. This area also needs to feel inviting and comfortable so it‘s important to choose the right furniture.
