Living Room / June 28, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
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.
How to arrange living room furniture is up to you and your particular pieces. Most of us have a sofa and another chair or two, which we can position and reposition as often as we like. When trying out new living room arrangements, make sure to allow enough space between furniture corners so people can swish past in search of a comfy spot. And give everyone a reachable drink rest, even if it's just a stack of books on the ottoman.
If you want a living room with a difference, it definitely can't hurt to embrace a striking piece of wall art as your main focal point. Here, thanks to an understated sofa and neutral colour scheme, all eyes are firmly on the art and that in itself alludes to a real gallery feel.
