You will no doubt need some seating options incorporated into your living room design, which can range from small accent chairs to a big roomy sectional. Be careful of cramming a too-large sofa into a too-small space — it’s tempting to go big, but sacrificing walking paths or potential storage space is not always worth it. While there are a lot of different options in living room designs, you definitely want to have enough seating for those living in the house, plus an extra seat or two for the occasional guests. A place to put down drinks or snacks, like side tables or a coffee table, is a must. If you have the depth for it, an ottoman or coffee table where people can prop their feet up is always a welcome living room decorating idea, but skip out on this if the living room is on the narrow side and go for a deeper sofa instead. Whatever size your space is, there’s plenty of living room inspiration to choose from - to get started on your living room remodel, add living room pictures which spark creativity to an ideabook.
Adding color to the living room is not about going overboard with just one hue. Colorful living rooms are quite different from vibrant bedrooms or vivacious kitchens that seem inherently more receptive to the greater infusion of bold hues. Sometimes it is best to just add pops of bright color and to repeat it carefully throughout the room to find that balance between desired style, upbeat ambiance and a backdrop that is still versatile and adaptable. It is time to break the shackles of convention with color!
The sea has the most magnificent coloring. It can be dark blue or light turqoise, all depending on its depth and the way the light hits the water at any given moment. White often comes into the mix when the waves start foaming and the whole scenery is absolutely captivating. Bring these colors into your interior to fully capture the magic of the ocean!
A gorgeous wooden accent wall can offer much more than just textural contrast in a contemporary interior dominated by polished finishes. A fabulous curved accent wall like the one below brings with it loads of intrigue and a touch of 3D beauty that brings the interior alive. The wavy strips of wood that hold both the television and the shelves around it seem like a work of modern art as they elevate the style quotient of the dashing apartment in Columbia.
We love minimal end tables that seem to slot in even into the tiniest of spaces with ease! When you need just a bit of room for your champagne glass, smartphone and not much else, then these ultra-sleek and refined end tables are absolutely perfect. Bloomingville give their round and slim end tables a Nordic finish while the Twin Occasional Tables from Cor seem like they belong on a sci-fi movie set. Be it is the uber-minimal end table from Jori or innovative side tables from Hulsta, each of these trendy tables is a masterpiece in itself.
The round end table is undoubtedly the most popular among its clan. And it is easy to understand why as the circular table top offers geometric contrast in modern living rooms, bedrooms and home offices where clean straight lines dominate the setting. A small, round end table next to a relaxing lounger can provide the perfect refuge for a bibliophile when coupled with a snazzy floor lamp. Another hip trend is to combine two or three of these small side tables to create a coffee table that is unique and can multi-task.
