Choose elements that are neither harsh nor extreme. If this is going to be the primary space for guests, avoid colors that are too severe or gender specific as these could alienate some of your guests. Primary colors and neutrals are always a safe bet. Lighter, brighter colors work best in when used sparingly.
Both the sofa and the trunk look cool and fun, adding a tinge of color to any home decor. But the question is, are you going to be just as excited when the Olympics games are over? While it sounds neat to get your friends over and enjoy the games with a pint in your hand, paying £2399 and £629, respectively, is not exactly something that I’d call affordable.
For hose who do not like having those flashy colors, light hued silk and velvet drapes are available in stores. Imagine transforming your living room into a comfy little den complete with furniture that sports motifs and scroll work. And, a quick work at polishing them would do wonders.
Of course, the first thing we will need to decide on is a theme and there are certainly plenty of these to consider! When it comes to planning the design of our living room we can stick to classic and traditional styles or we may opt for something that is little more contemporary. If we do decide to bring things up to date with our choice of look, then Minimalism is always a safe bet.
Your matching sofas don’t need to be ultra-long to get the job done. And don’t hesitate to add pops of color with vibrant pillows. If your space isn’t ideal for the placement of sofas across from one another, try arranging seating in a perpendicular formation, as shown in the next image.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
