Layer textures to create an inviting and unique decor. Notice the subtle orange accents that complement the light color palette and the texture on the walls, the rug and the way all these subtle hints merge to form a welcoming room. Layout is very important when you‘re dealing with a small space. It;s why we find this traditional living room very charming. The fireplace takes center stage, with two armchairs framing it and a 2-seater sofa in front of it. It‘s the perfect combination. Although this room is only wide enough to incorporate a three-seater sofa, somehow it doesn’t feel tiny. The large windows and the sliding glass doors that lead outdoors definitely help but the key is the simplicity of the design.
The Edge House by Mobius Architects is a modern urban home in a mountain setting and, as a result, has a design which reflects that. The living room is centered around a modern fireplace and offers panoramic views through its floor-to-ceiling windows. Long curtains can break the connection with the outdoors, transforming this space into an intimate nook. When the views are as stunning as in the case of this Cyprus residence by Vardastudio Architects & Designers, the interior design is often kept simple. Earthy colors, clean lines and a pair of yellow accent chairs for the living rooms is a great starting point. Glass surrounds this long and narrow living room exposing it to the beautiful outdoors and establishing a strong connection between the zones. The décor here is consistent with that of the rest of the residence that SBCH Architects designed in South Carolina. The building has a glass facade which defines the main social areas.
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.
A brown leather sofa is a classical piece of furniture, usually seen in traditional interior designs. But it can also be included in modern or contemporary decors, given the right design. It gives the room a very elegant feel. It’s this particular combination of material and color that has this effect. Leather is perceived as an elegant and even luxurious material. It‘s because it used to be very expensive and only wealthy people could have leather furniture in their homes. Of course, now anyone can afford one but the image remained the same.
