Living rooms are meant to be lived in, so make sure your space is somewhere that everyone in the family will enjoy. This cosy open-plan living room combines modern and traditional furniture to create a welcoming, family-friendly space. The solid wood dining table is complemented by modern white chairs, which tie in with the white of the large sideboard. The fireplace tiles introduce a rustic, tactile edge, while a large wall-hung mirror helps to open out what is a very busy, multifunctional space.
As one of the most social spaces in the house, your living room needs to look good, work hard and function well. Before you begin any work, take a little time to work out how the space functions for you. Is it a relaxing haven, and entertaining space of family central? A sophisticated neutral palette helps create a comfortable feel in this kitchen living area. The trick is to pay attention to balancing the colour scheme and keeping everything in proportion. An open-plan layout is a fundamental part of modern family schemes and this one incorporates all aspects of living.
Making the most of natural light is a great way to keep a room feeling vibrant and lively and can even help a space feel larger than it actually is. Here, a run of sliding doors leads directly on to a patio area, providing a seamless connection to the outdoors while, inside, neutral tones are enlivened with a pop of vibrant pink.
If your budget allows, go for a complete makeover. Start with a neutral base, selecting all your permanent pieces, such as sofas, chairs and tables, in go-with-anything neutral shades. Then, add in color and style with pillows, framed artwork and accessories. Here, designer Joel Snayd uses a gray-and-white color palette to set the tone for this contemporary farmhouse living room. He brings in the glam with all the pieces that can be switched out later, like the floral-printed stools, colorful bolster pillows and eclectic mix of accessories.
