The living room designed by Nico van der Meulen Architects for House Ber in South Africa captures the simplicity of this style and the beauty of the surroundings with its openness and transparency. The decor is based on a series of light vs dark contrasts complemented by small yellow touches distributed around the room. The leather-covered accent wall is a key characteristic of this living room in Moscow by Aleksandra Fedorova Bureau. The wall coordinates with other design elements such as the sofa, ottomans and area rug. A beautiful touch is the series of ivory touches used in the room and the fact that the dining space is positioned by the windows. A fireplace can totally change the ambiance in a room. Take the NNS Apartment designed by Mudrogelenko in Saint Petersburg. Without the fireplace the living room would feel a lot less inviting, especially given the colors and finishes used throughout.
When bold patterns and colors don’t have large-scale colors to compete with (as is often the case with a living room’s color-painted walls), they shine that much bolder and brighter. Which is the whole point of having a statement piece or two, isn‘t it? Clean lines and interesting architecture (such as a steeply angled ceiling, skylights, and wood trimmed windows and doors) are set off fantastically with these white walls. The space itself, though somewhat complicated design-wise, exudes fresh, calm, contemporary style. This natural-lit family-friendly living room embraces the clarity of muted tones and straight and parallel lines. White walls complement the airiness of the glass-windowed walls and refuse to compete with the minimalist vibe here.
A small living room doesn‘t have to be a game-changer when you‘re decorating your home. Don‘t think of it as just a tiny space in your home but as a challenge. Brighten up because there are tons of ways in which you can turn this issue into an advantage if you pick the right design. Make a small living room feel more airy with large windows or, even better, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls. Adapt their design to the style you‘ve chosen for the room. Make the most of the space available with the right type of layout.
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.
