How can you update your living room and fill it with style? Put these super clever ideas to work and show off your modern living room brimming with character.
CHOOSE TRÈS CHIC FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES
You have finally managed to integrate the dining room and kitchen into your living room. Do you want to go one step further? Choose avant-garde furniture and accessories. In this dining room, the interior designer has opted for modern armchairs upholstered in velvet and with golden brass armrests, matching the side table, and a suspended sculptural lamp that instantly updates it.
ENTER GOLDEN DETAILS
The modern kitchens, integrated into the lounge, earn points if equip with modern touches, as chosen by interior decorators Vanessa Vergara and Andrea Diego: cabinets without handles, presence of wood and some lamps suspended super stylish in gold give an elegant touch and glamorous.
REPLACE THE COFFEE TABLE WITH A MORE MODERN ONE AND REDECORATE IT
If the coffee table in your living room has not aged as well as you would like and that takes away points when it comes to updating it, what are you waiting for to change it? Lean for low solid wood tables or models that mix this material with a metallic structure. The interior designer has chosen this tray-type table and we love it! Also, take the opportunity to redecorate its surface. Opt for books, candles, ceramic or glass pieces, and plants.
CREATE A DECORATIVE FIREPLACE AND ADD A GOLD MIRROR
Update your living room with a decorative smoke-free fireplace. And “light it” with some beautiful white candles placed inside. Finish off the scene with a golden mirror and your living room will breathe modernity on all four sides. This is what the architects have done in their living room and have added these other ideas ready to be copied: walls painted a soft gray, white sofa covers, fiber carpet, solid wood coffee table, and a portable designer lamp.
DARE WITH COLOR AND CONTRASTS
White and gray take the cake when it comes to painting the walls, but if you need strong emotions and want to decorate your living room in a modern way, decide to cover it in intense color. Interior designer Begoña Susaeta chose this blue that, although it looks like paint, is wallpaper. The color contrasts with the wooden ceiling beams that were updated by painting them white.
EXPAND WINDOWS AND CREATE THEM WHERE THERE ARE NONE
Modern living rooms are, above all, bright. If you want yours to gain in light and spaciousness, make your windows larger and reduce the profiles to a minimum. This is what the interior designer has done here. It has also updated this neutral living room with a large deep-colored shag rug, multiple cushions on the sofa, and a designer lamp.
