10 Modern Living Room Design Ideas

2016-10-10
Take cues from these smartly designed spaces in your own home 

1.Seeing Red: Balance it with pops of white. A smattering of dove white wall accents with the white fireplace, chair rail, and coffee table keep the bold color in check.

2.Pattern Play: The trick to mixing patterns is to pick a color theme—here, reds, browns, and blues—and to use big swaths of solid color (the brown sofa, red chairs, and green ottoman) to anchor the space.

3.Light and Airy: You can pack a lot into your living room—even a dining set—if you keep furnishings from weighing the space down. Lucite dining chairs, an open-weave coffee table, and an unobstructed wall of windows keeps this room from feeling cramped.

4.White on White: You can’t go wrong with an all-white space. To prevent it from feeling like a hospital room, introduce different textures. A crocheted throw, a rough-hewn linen sofa, and a nubby rug all add depth to a monochromatic loo

5.Reading Nook: Carve out a quiet moment in your living room to entice a little reading time. Drag a cozy chair over to a window or next to a bookshelf and be sure to provide ample light for late-night page turning.

6.Updated Prep: Give tradition a twist and try a living room filled with old standby silhouettes—a Chesterfield sofa, bamboo side chairs—in super-saturated colors (ocean blue and lime green).

7.Game Changing: An extra-large coffee table with a feminine shape is the modern take on the traditional game table. Invite friends over for game night; the edge on the table will keep board pieces (and drinks) from sliding onto the floor.

8.Touch of Trend: Update your living room as you would your wardrobe—with a few new accessories each season. This neutral room is an easy canvas for a few pops of color and pattern—an aubergine throw, a zebra pillow, and a metallic side table.

9.Silver Accents: Cool metal touches give this room a sophisticated air. The scrolling mirror, the legs of the coffee table, even the fireplace andirons are all glossed in chic silver.

10.Balancing Act: Keep the two separated and well-defined by lining one wall with a welcoming wallpaper, and keeping the living room furniture appropriated to an area rug
