Besides the typical architectural details such as the moldings and ceiling roses that some traditional homes still have, their interiors are also characterized by elegant decorations and accessories, including pendant lamps or even chandeliers, artwork on the walls and decorative flowers on the table. Of course, there are variations to these decors and different influences.
Guido Constantino designed a residence with around 10,000 square feet of functional living space in Ontario, Canada. The actual living room is huge with a lot of open space, large windows and minimal furniture. The high ceiling increases the spaciousness and the living room furniture sets have minimal impact on the overall design. A well-balanced interior design makes good use of every little detail. Take this living room by McClean Design. It has floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the corner to let the views in, a grey-based color palette for simplicity and a quirky sectional with a really cozy texture. The modern fireplace warms up the atmosphere. This private residence in Bruseels designed by Auxan Atelier Architecture actually has an eclectic interior best captured in the living room where the sofa, the coffee table décor and the minimalism surrounding them each tell a different story. Still, the modern vibe prevails.
Others prefer to use color and pattern to make a decor stand out. LLI Design decorated this small living room with red sectional sofa and a really interesting coffee table with a sculptural metal base. A variety of different patterns act as secondary focal points for the space. Egue Y Seta also made use of various prints and patterns when designing this private residence in Benicàssim, Spain. But perhaps the most interesting feature here is the pair of accent walls. Another interesting detail is the fact there’s no ceiling light fixture here. A dramatic and chic spiral staircase becomes a décor element in the living room of the 17BR-House by ONG and ONG. The staircase maximizes vertical circulation and allows the social spaces to expand. To compensant for the lack of windows and natural light in this particular area of the house, the designers painted the walls white and used subtle accent lighting.
Traditional rugs have an easily distinguishable pattern and they feature a mix of warm colors and intricate patterns. Rugs, regardless of their style, are a detail that has become unnecessary in most modern decors. However, they have a softness to them that allows them to bring warmth to a room and to create a cozy and more intimate atmosphere. Traditional living rooms also often have fireplaces. It’s a very beautiful detail that makes the whole room stand out.
