Living Room / June 21, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
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.
How to arrange living room furniture in a rectangular room depends on the natural focal point of the space. In some rooms, this is architectural, such as a fireplace or a set of windows. In other living rooms, the focal point is a television. Once you determine this feature, orient the seating toward it. This feature now has the attracting qualities the wall is used to—let the furniture gravitate there. For a large living room layout, find ways to create zones in the space.
Now this living room is very clever! Take a quick glance and it looks colourful and fun, but really focus in and you see that the main hue is actually plain white! Thanks to a few bright touches, the entire vibe has been transformed into a more kaleidoscopic feel, but not in a cloying or over the top way.
