A simple white wall can become a dull element in a minimalistically styled home. The brightness of the space can start to feel without character and the perfect way to resolve this is to add some color to your walls. If you don’t like boldly colored walls, choosing the minty shade of green will be the perfect choice. It opens up the space, fills it with personality and creates a prestigious look.
A wooden accent wall does not always have to be one of the pre-existing walls in the living room. You can create your own wall of wood with a striking room divider like the one below. Delineating space in an open plan living without blocking the line of sight or even the flow of light, this elegant divider acts as an accent wall that is easy on the eyes and space-savvy as well!
Modular sofas – they are quickly becoming the next big thing in contemporary living rooms. Allowing you to use the small urban living room in multiple ways and turning the large, open living area into a more social setting, modular sofas work well in pretty much every home. Apart from allowing you to easily move around individual pieces to fashion multiple compositions, modular sofa units also give you the convenience of adding more seating with growing family needs. Adaptable, fun and undoubtedly colorful, they bring an air of playfulness to the living room.
There are few things that are more important than maximizing available space and making use of every inch on offer, when it comes to planning for a contemporary urban home. Yet, for most of us, smart management of space is a constant issue – a problem stems from poor design and décor choices. But you can change all that this year by removing clutter, creating a spacious living environment and bringing home furniture that offers ample storage even while being space-savvy. It is undoubtedly the living room that sets the trend in this regard and today we flip through 25 inspirations that should get you started in the right direction.
The minty wall is the perfect undertone for the living room styled in a harmony of both old-fashioned elements and contemporary furniture. It balances out the room and proves that it can fit with any color or trend! The living room is a place where we lounge and relax, so it’s important for the space to feel kind and welcoming. You can be sure that the mint wall will contribute to a calming atmosphere! When paired together with white tones, mint wall infuses the room with so much freshness it immediately gets the feel of being airy and breathable! The beauty of mint hues is that they are incredibly versatile. They absolutely beautify a minimalist living room, but they will easily bring out the best of the vibrant, colorful living room too!
The sofa is much more than just another piece of furniture in your home. It sets the tone for the rest of your interior both in terms of style, décor choices and the general theme and color scheme that you use. If you happen to have an open plan living, then your sofa choice becomes even more crucial. We understand that many of our readers are not really interested in changing such a pivotal piece of the home decorating jigsaw all too often and that is why many stay away from a colorful couch. Instead a sofa in black and white or even gray is the preferred choice. But 2016 and the first half of 2017 seem to disagree with this!
This is definitely our favorite way of putting the smart bookshelf to use, and it is undoubtedly the most popular choice among contemporary homeowners as well! A bookshelf in the open plan living area can delineate space, creating a distinct boundary between the living room and the dining area or kitchen without blocking light or visual connectivity. Apart from acting as a boundary, the shelf also adds to display and storage space and gives the living area a quick style upgrade. From those open, wiry bookshelves to the more sturdy ones in wood, you can pick a selection that best fits the style of your home and the overall ambiance.
Minute details make a big difference to the larger picture and it is ultimately the smaller design and decorating choices that define the style of your home. It is the couch, coffee table and the TV unit that might largely set the mood in your living room, but you still need a cool end table or side table to truly complete the setting. Despite their seemingly modest presence, end tables make your life a whole lot easier even while adding another unique dimension to the living space. Often overlooked, these versatile additions also find a place beyond just the corner next to the couch!
Why waste all that vertical space on offer in your living or dining room by choosing bookshelves that barely stand a few feet tall? Modern masterpieces like the one below ensure that you never have to again worry about finding space for the new bestseller at your home! These gigantic bookshelves also create a stunning backdrop in the living room and generally seem most at home in loft-style residences and industrial apartments. Throw in a library ladder or even a mezzanine-style, metallic walkway, and you have a home library / living room that would be the envy of every bibliophile.
