A living room needs to be a place where families can kick their feet up. Where they can convene, entertain, and enjoy each other. But for those people who pride themselves on design, it also needs to be able to tie a home together. In these 25 living rooms, modern concepts take precedence with sleek sofas and towering windows creating a heart for these homes.
It's fall and it's the best time to embrace dark colors! Dark colors do not always mean gloomy shades, they can be refined, chic and very relaxing if you pull them off right. Today we are going to have a look at the coolest dark living rooms.
A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I'd like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
Decorating with grey is a clear thing as this color is good for everything: walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, upholstery and accessories, just vary the shades to get what you like. If you want something airy and neutral, choose dove grey, if not – charcoal grey is right what you need. Black will also look good and contrasting with grey and yellow; if you want a lighter look and airy feel, add white or cream. As for yellow, this color is more difficult to use it right and not to get a tasteless result or not to make your living room too bold. If you already have a gray living room, you can add just some yellow accents that can be changed for other when you are tired of them: a console table, a couple of frames, a mantel, pillows and throws. You can also add some bold yellow artworks and stools or ottomans to enliven the room.
A large area rug creates a separate area in this open living room while gauzy curtains can be pulled closed to prevent the dreaded television glare. A cozy nook for a few friends, the light fixtures in this room remind us of deconstructed bird cages. Molded wood chairs are perfectly modern, though the plush sofa is probably a better place to snooze.
The tile wall of this bathroom was broken up with texturing. The vessel sink on the marble counter and pendant lamp bring in contrast against the crème. This white bathroom has an added flash of dramatic red marble, creating a shocking contrast. The strokes of grey in the marble floor is picked up in white and grey in the wall. Straight lines repeat in the commodes, bathtub, and sink.
Sometimes choosing a theme for a room can be the best inspiration for getting it to feel exactly how you'd like it. For bedrooms, one great theme is going with a country vibe that will make you forget the bustle of life outside the bedroom door. Keep the walls sunny and bright by choosing a pale yellow paint color and decorate with landscape photographs and light wooden furniture. Use antique touches, like a delicate chandelier and curvy nightstands to make sure the room doesn't feel too old-fashioned or frumpy.
What can add to your living room décor? First of all, a fireplace. It may be non-working or a real one, with candles or logs inside, decorated with molding or stone around, and it will definitely add more coziness to your living room. Lamps and lights can be used for accentuating a space. Bold brass chandeliers, unique mid-century modern floor lamps or geometric pendant ones taken in various colors will pop up in the interior besides giving some light.
What's characteristic of feminine coffee tables is that they very often double as ottomans, which is a smart idea. Choose a cute upholstered ottoman and coffee table in one in some girlish color like pink, blush, lavender or just white, it will create an inviting ambience. To add a glam feel to your space, choose a glass coffee table with gilded legs and framing. If you have a modern living room, why not try trendy and edgy acrylic coffee tables? They can have metallic corners for a chic look or be just sheer and seem to disappear in the air.
With this in mind, we return to our reality. Now that summer is over and we hurry towards wintertime, outdoor canopy beds are put aside for an encounter with cozy canopy beds in the bedroom. Feathered beds used to be frameless bags filled with feathers that had to be fluffed every morning. Now we indulge in soft but sturdy mattresses with luxurious bedsheets under breezy canopies.
