The living room is the center of the house. The meeting point where the whole family gathers, your brand new workplace, or your favorite space to watch your favorite series. Therefore, the decoration of the room is important, since it is a place to enjoy it, alone or in a company. These 9 super salons are a dream. And, although most of them are not usually that big, some tricks deceive the eye and make them look bigger. Do you dare to put the following into practice?
1. VERY CHIC DETAILS
Whites and grays are the best color palette for painting living rooms. The interior designer Elena Eyre has chosen them in this room decorated with elegant wood paneling. The bookcases, before made of dark wood, have gained light and depth thanks to the different shades of gray, a color that has become the common thread of the living room.
2. AROUND THE FIREPLACE
Do you dream of having a fireplace, even if it is only decorative? Or that the living room is at the foot of the garden? Take note of this project because it makes both wishes come true. Plants or vintage pieces cannot be missing from your deco!
3. IN DUPLICATE
Long salons create an unpleasant tube feel. If this is your case, avoid it by dividing the space into two environments. Interior designer Olivia Reina designed this double room, one dedicated to social gatherings and the other to relaxation. Both with similar decorative pieces to give them continuity.
4. LOOK AT THE SEA AND RELAX!
If you are lucky enough to see the sea from your living room, let nothing cover it! Install a wall-to-wall glass window and place two or three sofas to enjoy the views. And what about those with their backs to the sea? Arrange a mirror in front so that they see it reflected.
5. SURROUNDED BY WINDOWS
If you live in a single-family apartment and want to enjoy the living room all year round, replace the walls with large windows. It was what Gabriela Conde did in the dining room of this farmhouse. He decorated it with a cozy and fresh color trio: camel, green, and tile. Have you noticed the impressive chandelier? Ideal!
6. TÊTE À TÊTE
Two large sofas facing each other and separated by a coffee table invite you to share conversations around the fireplace.
7. FRESH AND MODERN
The rugs are perfect accessories that not only shelter the floors (in this case of microcement ) but also delimit the living space.
8. WITH CHESTER
The elegance of this living room goes hand in hand with its precious sofa, in brown leather and tufted: a classic among classics, the chesterfield.
9. RUSTIC STYLE
This great room does not hide its country essence. On the contrary, it combines with different textures and materials to be reinforced. The detail: the ceiling lamp that reigns in the living room.
