Living Room / June 15, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
Show off your key focal point by framing it appropriately painting a wall a strong colour is the perfect backdrop for, say, striking artwork, a dramatic mirror, or display. Consider lighting, too this should be arranged to show off your chosen focal point to best advantage so that it doesn’t get ‘lost’ once night falls… and of course, there’s no reason why a fabulous light fixture, such as a sparkling chandelier or dramatic pendant, shouldn’t be the star, too.
With such a large window here, the living room itself almost plays second fiddle to the view, which works terrifically well. Understated colours and minimal furniture is elegantly lit by the natural light that pours in and helps to create a space that is really inspired by the natural world outside.
The room set above – featuring stylish pieces from Interiors – is a great example of asymmetric symmetry with furniture arranged to balance rather than mirror. The two club chairs are placed precisely across from the modular sofa, as are the two padded stools, so the overall look is neat and contained.
In terms of living room ideas, UK homes often seek to use traditional design motifs, particularly in period homes that wouldn't look quite right with anything else. There's a real time and a place for classic and sophisticated recognisable tropes of interior design and older homes with a little history are most definitely the right location.
