So you‘re not made of money and can‘t necessarily afford to implement everything your heart desires after browsing post interior design websites and magazines. Welcome to reality. It can be a struggle, certainly, to implement a look or try to recreate the feeling of a space when your heart says one thing and your wallet says another. But the good news is, whether you‘re looking to invest in high-quality pieces or you‘re working within a squeaky-tight budget (or somewhere in between), there are ways you can achieve a sophisticated, stylish look. Let‘s look to the living room to see how to mix highs and lows and come up with something waaay better than middle-ground.
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.
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.
Traditional interiors are easy to spot as they have a very specific look. They tend to focus on elegancy and on an overall continuous décor where everything matches everything else. The most commonly used colors are beige and brown with slight variations. An element that is specific to traditional décor, more exactly to living rooms, is the rug.
