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.
A wall decal can add depth to a room and make it seem bigger. Another trick you can use to your advantage. It‘s also a great way of breaking the monotony in the case of a neutral decor. In a small room, it‘s important to highlight the right features. For example, the fireplace is definitely the focal point of this room but the striped armchairs balance out the décor both in terms of color and ambiance.
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.
The same duo also designed this luxury residence in Cape Town which features an expansive living area on the ground floor with panoramic views, calming cove lighting and a color palette based on beige and brown accents. The Holy Cross residence by Thomas Balaban Architecte has a really simple living room. The decor is somewhat austere but really comfortable due to the strategically chosen furniture, accessories and colors. The living room colors also influence the rest of the home‘s decor. But not all modern living room decorating ideas are so bright and open. This one, for example, is in a Moscow apartment designed by M17 and in a way it resembles a hallway. A sculptural wall hides a variety of other functions, leaving the space simple. However, the lack of natural light can’t be overlooked.
