Through the views may not be extraordinary, the huge windows featured by this living room in Toronto designed by Studio JCI are justified in this case because they’re the only source of natural light. To maximize the openness of the space, the color scheme was kept simple and neutral. One of the best characteristics of modern interior design is the clean and fresh look which can be obtained through a variety of strategies. In the case of the Good Residence by Crone Partners this strategy included the use of simple and pure colors, vibrant contrasts and well-defined shapes without unnecessary features. Featuring an impressive structure and design especially as seen from above, this Sunset Strip residence is quite simplistic in terms of interior décor. The living room, for instance, is modest and not nearly as dramatic as one might expect. Yet this doesn’t make it any less extraordinary.
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.
Install great hardware onto generic furniture to achieve a custom, expensive look. In my opinion, you really can never go wrong with brass pulls. Look for footed furniture. It might sound a little crazy, but it‘s true! When furniture sits off the ground – even slightly – it somehow seems more elegant and high-end. If your existing furniture is lacking feet and your budget is sticky, feel free to add some feet yourself. There are loads of options available, and this serves to create a truly custom piece. Add artwork – lots of it – to personalize and create a vibrant space. Keep in mind that even the humblest of art pieces (translation: your 3-year-old niece‘s watercolor of an apple tree) can look fresh-from-the-gallery when it‘s framed and presented as such. Frame smaller pieces in groups for a greater impact, or go bold with one or two large pieces. Whatever you choose, just remember that, for artwork, presentation can be everything.
The color brown is perceived as being a sober shade. It‘s the color of the earth and it’s associated with autumn and nature. What‘s interesting is that studies show that brown is the least-loved of colors, being the favorite shade of only 1% of people. Still, it remains a symbol of elegance. Brown is also associated with humility because it was worn by monks. But whatever the history of the color is, one thing is certain: a brown leather sofa will definitely add elegance to your living room.
