Happy, cheerful colors evoke a fun, kid-friendly atmosphere. In her own home, designer and mom Alison Kandler paired a navy sofa with wicker furniture and a distressed coffee table, but the brightly striped area rug and candy-colored pink and floral pillows help tie all the hues together. The family space serves multiple functions: a place for kids to create art and play, a home office and a spot to relax as a family.
Optimise your open-plan living room by designing it to flow seamlessly out to an adjacent outdoor space. Consider wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling patio doors – they will extend your room and optimise light. Make the transition from inside to out seamless by colour-matching internal flooring with external decking. Choose a decorating palette that complements the garden and position all your furniture to take in the views so it’s easy to supervise little ones when they are outside.
As sunlight pours into this sophisticated, modern living room, light is reflected of the white surfaces of the walls, cabinets and sofas to create a bright, light atmosphere. To give the space some color, designers added throw pillows to make the couches pop. The main feature in this living space, though, is the cushioned teal ottoman that mixes in a little traditional style with a modern twist. The ottoman not only functions as a cushy coffee table, it doubles as extra seating when the homeowners entertain.
Great visuals transform this living room into a creative experience for the whole family. The bold hues of the custom-designed area rug reflect the colors of the abstract artwork. Sliding paned glass doors lead out to the pool, but with kid safety in mind. The pool is surrounded by clear glass panels that fence it off from the patio area.
