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.
The living room is at the heart of the house in most cases. It‘s where we welcome our guests, where we entertain them and where we spend time as a family. And while layouts and styles may differ, one things always remains the same: the comfort level and the welcoming ambiance which should characterize every rustic, industrial, traditional or modern living room. This house is Trakai designed by Aketuri Architektai has a really lovely living room decor, with large windows, comfortable seating and bookshelves placed high above the windows where they take up zero floor space.
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.
Try a symmetrical approach to change the perspective. Two matching armchairs placed side by side mimic the sofa and the coffee table and the shelving unit tie everything together. Also, the black and white combo suits the room really well. To save space and to also make the room feel more spacious, incorporate open shelves anywhere you can. In this case, the fireplace is wonderfully framed by shelves. We love the way the wooden ceiling stands out and the fact that the lighting fixtures don‘t overwhelm the room. This room is actually a multi-purpose space and it’s amazing how everything fits here when there‘s so little space to work with. There’s a work desk in the corner near the door, a dining table with chairs and a sofa. Shelves were integrated above the door and windows which is a very smart idea.
