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.
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.
The house designed by Dualchas Architects in Skye, Scotland has twp social areas separated from the kitchen and the dining area by purple wall dividers. One is a bit larger and the other and serves as the main living space. It has a white corner sectional, open shelves and a colorful striped area rug that coordinates a bit with the colors visible through the glass wall. Five beautiful villas were designed in Bodrum, Turkey by Aytac Atchitects. They are each unique but they are all influences by the tranquil views and the surrounding landscape. Charming and mysterious at night, bright and sunny during the day, the living spaces impress with their sophisticated simplicity and attention to details. Modern living room interiors are often a combination of styles, sometimes featuring subtle industrial accents, enough to give the room character without overwhelming it. A good example is the Coffou Cottage by Brininstool + Lynch where traditional and industrial elements fuse together in a modern setting.
The living is the most important part of the house, regardless of its size. It‘s a social area where guests are invited and where you spend most of your time when you‘re home. In most modern homes, the living room and the kitchen share an open plan which is a very smart idea. They are both social areas and by combining them you gain more space.
