The indoor living area and the outdoor swimming pool line up in a design by Marmol Radziner, a project known as Vienna Way Residence. The two zones are separated by sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Even though large and spacious living rooms are usually the most impressive, small living spaces can be interesting too. This one by White Interior Design maintains a simple and earthy color palette. The sofa and the wall unit almost seem like a single piece. The low coffee table and the flooring also coordinate really well. When the living space is limited, the color palette tends to be simplified.
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.
When bold patterns and colors don’t have large-scale colors to compete with (as is often the case with a living room’s color-painted walls), they shine that much bolder and brighter. Which is the whole point of having a statement piece or two, isn‘t it? Clean lines and interesting architecture (such as a steeply angled ceiling, skylights, and wood trimmed windows and doors) are set off fantastically with these white walls. The space itself, though somewhat complicated design-wise, exudes fresh, calm, contemporary style. This natural-lit family-friendly living room embraces the clarity of muted tones and straight and parallel lines. White walls complement the airiness of the glass-windowed walls and refuse to compete with the minimalist vibe here.
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.
