Living Room / June 7, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
Living room design ideas don't get much more chic and enviable than Scandinavian concepts. Seriously, it's long been the case that the Scandinavian approach to interior design has been not only admired but also imitated worldwide, thanks to the inspired use of neutral space, natural light, refreshing colours, natural materials and stylish furniture.
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.
A formal symmetrical scheme forms the basis of traditional interior design and is easy to achieve: if you were to draw a line down the middle of a room, one side would simply mirror the other, right down to the accessories or finishing touches. It’s a considered approach, though it does take discipline to keep it in order, and needs strong visual elements to stop it from appearing bland.
While there's a huge range of suitable colour schemes to choose from, you'll normally find that white features prominently, when a contemporary finish is desired, as it keeps everything looking uncluttered and bright. As a general rule, black is a natural contrast choice against the vibrancy of white and you'll never hear anybody claiming that monochrome is out or old-fashioned. Glossy, low-level furniture will always be at the centre of any contemporary creation too.
