This next one is an elegant, classy room. It has graphic prints on the walls and pillows and it feels airy. This blue and white beach-house room has comfy white furniture, beachy wall art and big windows that soak it in natural light. This living room is a bachelor‘s pad, it is wood paneled, furnished simple and has car and bicycle parking. A 70’s looking room with wood paneled floors, gold details and comfortable furniture. The last living room has black and white shades, green curtains for a twist and it is bold and sharp.
Just because a living room design focuses on comfort doesn‘t mean it ignores all the other aspects. This apartment in Warsaw by HOLA Design is a really good example. It perfectly combines looks and function using elegant colors, glamorous accessories and subtle but sophisticated accent details. But usually vibrant contrasts and combinations of colors and finishes work well in smaller spaces. Larger living rooms such as the one designed by Whipple Russell Architects can benefit from a more neutral and earthy palette simply because that would allow it to feel warm and comfortable. The 77 Sentosa Cove House by ONG and ONG was designed with minimal environmental impact, four levels and a central staircase and garden encased by glass walls. This pavilion is linked to the social areas and brings in light and freshness.
The color brown is perceived as being a sober shade. It‘s the color of the earth and it’s associated with autumn and nature. What‘s interesting is that studies show that brown is the least-loved of colors, being the favorite shade of only 1% of people. Still, it remains a symbol of elegance. Brown is also associated with humility because it was worn by monks. But whatever the history of the color is, one thing is certain: a brown leather sofa will definitely add elegance to your living room.
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.
