A living room is a room in a residential house or apartment for relaxing and socializing. Such a room sometimes called a front room when it is near the main entrance at the front of the house. It is a place where we spent most of our time or where we sit cozily.
Less is more
Purity is born with simplicity. Still, simplicity doesn’t mean a single chair or table per room; but a well-analyzed design strategy; and minimal clutter. Keeping things simple is not only good for your space-it is also good for your mood, and for reducing stress as much as possible.
Fair-minded color schemes
While we’re still discussing simplicity, we should not undermine the importance of your color schemes. The main rule is to use a neutral palette based on white, black, and eventually beige. The rule applies both to walls and furnishing, and it is the most powerful guideline in order to attract attention.
Neutrality counts also for your floors
The purity of your living room depends also on the floors you have installed. The same as walls, floors should remain solid and neutral, allowing other important elements (art, furniture, or decorations) to grab attention first. If you decide to use carpets, make sure they are equally soft and unobtrusive, painted with the same color palette.
Modern interior design prefers sharpness. This rule is mostly applied in the case of furniture: devoted trend followers use geometrically concise furniture, such as straight-lined sofas and dining tables.The colors you apply should clearly contrast the neural palette applied on the walls and floors, depending on what you planned to be the focal point in the room.
Combinations of different materials
The modern interior design gives priority to wood and plastic, as well as natural grain finishes.Shiny metals (stainless steel, for instance) are common, as long as they are combined with less striking elements. For example, you could combine them with light wood elements, glass, or eye-catchy accessories.
Perfect lighting in living room
As we all know, proper lighting is the key towards positive feelings. Therefore, it is not enough to make the living room elegant, but you need to make it cozy and relaxing. More light (both natural and artificial) makes the room look spacious and relaxing, which is perfect considering the time you’re spending on it.The best choice you could make is to buy adaptive lamps, whose intensity can be controlled and adjusted.
Wall decorations can make or break the living room design, so don’t apply them unless you really know what you are doing. You can stick thematic wallpapers; hang an alternative poster in a plastic frame, or do drawings and writings that personalize your space.
Besides drawings, you can also paint parts of the walls with brave colors; or cover small portions with interesting patterns. Whatever you choose, make sure it resembles your personality; and that it actually means something to you.
