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.
White is an often-overlooked color for walls. Maybe it‘s because many of us, having grown up with white walls in our childhood homes, see white walls as a poor excuse for absence of color options. But I‘m here to show you that, no matter what your décor style, painting your walls white just might be the best, chicest option for you. This Swedish apartment pulls out all the stops on charm, with chunky wood wall beams and modern floor lamp and everything in between. Simplicity and good taste are exuded in clean lines and accessory self-restraint. White walls in the living room certainly doesn‘t mean keeping things devoid of color and personality. Quite the opposite, in fact! By choosing, then sticking to, a striking color palette, white walls provide an excellent backdrop to showcase and highlight your style.
Find ways to create combos when choosing your furniture. Take this design for example. The sofa fits perfectly into that little nook in the wall unit and the open shelves let the room feel more spacious and less cluttered. Choosing the right colors for the room can be the thing that changes the whole perspective. Paint the walls white and pick furniture that features light colors. It‘s a nice idea to also have some contrasts but avoid dark shades by any means. If the room is small, do you really need bulky furniture? Turn the room into a cozy seating area and focus your efforts on creating a harmonious decor while using as little furniture as possible without compromising on style and comfort.
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.
