Sofas don’t have to be modular to be expansive. For example, a curved sofa adds spacious seating and geometric interest. Throw in a swivel armchair, and have some floor poufs and cushions on hand for those nights when large-group entertaining is a must.
Speaking of unsightly items, nothing conceals them quite like a screen. The decorative screens in the room below add an artistic element to the space.
What if the color of the walls set the stage for a room change? In the next image, a wallpaper pattern sparsely introduced in the living room completely covers the walls of the dining room in an interior designed by Celerie Kemble and Anna Burke.
Today we feature a wide variety of living room images as sources of inspiration. Not only are these pics a great way to get innovative design ideas for your own home, they shed light on some tricky layout dilemmas: how to seat guests, how to divide the room from the other areas of the house, where to hide the TV and how to maximize space. Take a look and see what inspires you!
Don’t forget that clear furnishings create the illusion of space. The living room below is obviously not a small interior, but a glass coffee table enhances the open feel created by floor-to-ceiling windows.
A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
