Even if you’re not looking to conceal the TV in any way, sometimes less emphasis can be placed on the television by strategically avoiding making it the focal point of the room. In the space below, designed and built by Epic Development, the sofa faces the fireplace. A TV on the side wall goes largely unnoticed.
Looking for height as well as a clear separation of spaces? Go with a divider screen, such as a frosted Plexiglass selection that lets in the light while doing its job.
You can also add to the traditional lure by choosing different bold hues for your living room walls. But when you do that, make sure the colors stand well with your taste and that of the visitors too.
This year it is all about creating a new mixture of styles with the help of modern contrasting flooring, geometric area rugs or well placed light sources. Blinds, vertical or horizontal, will add a contemporary feel of industrial space to the comfortable living room. Quality furnishings and decorative elements can be combined to create an inviting living room interior design. Restored antique furniture items find their place in the trends of 2011, together with bold colour blends.
