Nanette Delannoy. Living Room. May 30th , 2017.
Note the open feel of the modern living room below. By angling the chaise lounge and locating the coffee table near the couch, there is still room for traversing the space. Not to mention, opening the back door extends the living room to the backyard, where an inviting pool awaits!
While stark white looks great in modern spaces, often a softer color is desirable for an elegant room. If that is the case for you, choose something with a hint of grey or yellow. I recommend staying away from anything too darkly beige — you will lose the airy open feeling. This color is Barren Plain 2111-60 by Benjamin Moore. Notice the contrasting decor elements: the black stripe on the curtains, purple couch, black frames and dark floors.
Have you ever considered painting your walls black? This paint color is a bold choice but can look so elegant. Exactly the opposite of white paint, dark paint makes your space feel tighter or cozier. While I might not recommend black for a small room, it can make a large living room feel more homey.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
