Anything that injects the elusive old age charm to your living room is bound to make you love it. If you do have the habit of storing those sepia tinted photographs of your ancestral home, it would be easier to understand what it means to live around those charming old furniture designs and drapes.
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.
The divider doesn’t even have to be a sofa! A pair of chairs gets the job done, as shown by the gray and black chairs that separate living room and dining room below.
In recent years the traditional sofa design has undergone somewhat of a revolution. Designers are now seeing the humble sofa as something more than a comfy place to sit on an evening, or as a statement piece to show off in your home. It is now being classed, by some, as a work of art, whilst also being practical and comfy to sit on, as a sofa should be.
Your living room will look modern with a few trendy touches and it will evolve together with your lifestyle into a complex interior design that will complement your personality. Use bold colours and earth tones to create a unique living room arrangement and do not hesitate when it comes to blending old furniture with modern influences.
