Living Room / June 23, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
For many people, the comfort of a living room outranks the aesthetic value but you can combine the two effortlessly, by focusing on a cosy finish. If you're wondering which motifs will help to capture the right essence.
Layering your scheme with different weights, finishes and materials is a fundamental principle of making a decorative look work: otherwise, no matter how beautiful the furniture or colour used, the effect will be flat and dull.
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.
