Living Room / June 13, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
From family game nights to book club gatherings, the living room is a social hub. The proper placement of the room's furniture goes a long way toward making the space feel welcoming. Nothing is worse than living room layouts—no matter how attractive—where people have to perch against the walls, as if stuck there by magnetic force. Rather, push seating together so everyone can sit close and converse comfortably.
Combining different elements – wood, stone, glass, metal, leather – together with a variety of surfaces, from smooth and shiny to rough and nubbly, is easy to achieve. Layering different fabrics is a great way to bring texture to the fore – provided patterns are all within the same colour family, it will work.
Based around natural materials, muted colours and pretty patterns, Scandinavian living rooms have a very relaxed and chic vibe. Natural wood will usually play a central role and add to a very warm and comfortable look.
A room will feel more comfortable and inviting if it has a focal point, whether that’s an architectural feature, a fantastic view, an arresting piece of furniture, or artwork. The idea is that it draws the eye – it should be the first thing that’s noticed on entering a room - and if possible, furnishings should be arranged around it.
