Living Room Design Ideas That Will Inspire You To Decorate Right Now
When it comes to finding the perfect living room ideas for your home, the possibilities are seemingly endless. You might love a ton of different design styles and not know how to blend them into your home, or you just might be short on living room decor ideas and need some inspo. Regardless, we've got you covered. Below, take a look at a few living room design ideas that we're totally crushing on right now and why.
What we love about this living room is that it only uses three colors: black, white, and tan. Notice that every piece made of wood has the same colored stain, and that even the hardware of each piece fits into the color scheme; the coffee table has black metal legs, and the low credenza has a brass handle that reads more tan than yellow or gold. This hyper-cohesiveness gives this living room a sleek, modern touch that still feels homey and broken in. To achieve a similar feel, play with textures (i.e. the chevron rug against the herringbone hardwood floors, or the accent checked wallpaper against the solid black fireplace).
There are a lot of things that make this living room in Kylie Jenner's house super interesting. First off, notice how the room plays with shapes. Most of the decor revolves around the idea of rectangles meeting circles: The circular mirrors are next to the rigid rectangular fireplace and the coffee tables are small cubes with circles cut out of them. There's also a symmetry to the room that makes it very pleasing to the eye. And finally, there is only one focal point in the room so that the eye knows exactly where to look — the giant slab of marble on the fireplace. Obviously the hammock is a fun addition, but even without it, you'd have a really sophisticated living room.
This is definitely one of those "maybe in a million years when I'm older and rich enough" living rooms, but there are tons of design elements in this living room that can be incorporated into a space that doesn't have floor-to-ceiling windows or 30-foot ceilings. What makes this living room so zen-like and relaxing is the mix of concrete and wood. The smooth gray stone against the textured wood provides a contrast that is super satisfying. Plus, the furniture in the room only accents that contrast more. It's all in the same colors as the hardwood and the concrete, save the few pieces that are a complementary ivory. Another thing to note is the contrast in heights — the furniture is very low to the ground, making the room seem even taller than it is.
We love Athena Calderon's take on a New York beach house. It feels modern and sleek while still warm and homey. Everything looks perfectly intentional, which is part of what makes this space seem immaculate. The built-in shelving allows for less clutter (no freestanding bookcases or shelves to make the room seem messy), and the mix of textures gives a lot for the eye to look at. We particularly like the mix of stones between the end and coffee tables, as well as the few wooden and rattan accents that give the room a warmer touch. The ivory upholstery on all of the seating offers cohesiveness, while the variance in texture (fuzzy on the accent chair, smooth on the sofa) adds intrigue. The lightness of the room still maintains a beachy vibe, but the clean lines bring the city into the home.
