Living Room / June 15, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
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.
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.
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.
Practicalities must be considered, of course, and furnishings chosen to suit our lifestyle, but there’s more to it than that: as any interior designer will tell you, a great scheme depends on principles that might not be immediately obvious, but which, when successfully employed, make a world of difference not only to the look of a room, but to the way it makes you feel in it.
