Having a luxurious living room leaves a good impression; probably because it is the first thing that people notice when they walk into a house. Your living room speaks volumes about your personality and can set the tone for the rest of the house. Having a beautiful space for entertaining guests, friends, or family members can also help you feel proud of your home. It is why many people take great care while designing their living room. Furthermore, there are many different ways in which you can spruce up your living room and hence help it fit your imagination.
Thus, whether you are moving into a new house or want a change of space, this article will give you some of the most helpful tips for a luxurious living room.
The living room can be one of the most vibrant rooms in the house. Large elongated walls are the perfect way for you to showcase paintings or place collections of plates, artwork, etc. If you live in a colder region and have a fireplace, you could also paint these walls to emulate stones or bricks for a more earthy tone. You could even design a luxury wall fixture that goes on a central wall so that it draws the viewer’s attention and sets the tone for the rest of the room. Many popular contemporary trends also involve the placement of fountains or indoor gardens in the living room. Not only do these add a dynamic and layered movement to space but they also provide a soothing and calming effect due to their natural appeal. They also help make the room appear larger or could also be an offbeat way of filling up excess space. Apart from this, bright colors, geometric-patterned carpets, and floral curtains all add to the tone of the living room.
The lighting in a room plays a role in affecting our moods as well as those of our guests. Thus, when picking out lights, ensure that they light up the area perfectly. When it comes to luxurious living rooms, nothing can help you more than a well-placed light fixture. Lighting up the living room happens using a combination of ceiling lamps and a modern floor lamp. Here, a vital characteristic of a luxury living room is lights that act as statement pieces. You should pick out fixtures, such as chandeliers, pendant lights, etc. which illuminate the room. On the other hand, floor lamps come in beautiful designs and you can use these to draw attention to a specific wall or piece of furniture.
The living room is also a space where you can showcase a wild and extroverted side. Apart from experimenting with different colors, patterns, and lighting, an easy way that you can make your living room leave a lasting impression is by throwing in a sculpture. Many modern artists enjoy drawing from everyday items for creating sculptures that display pop-culture. Thus, adding a sculpture to the living room not only can add a burst of color to space but may also become a point of conversation with visitors.
Setting up a theme for the living room is an easy way for you to decorate when you run out of ideas. The theme for your living room could range from artsy to historic and could even draw from minimalist or maximalist themes. Apart from this, your theme could also be kept simple. If you enjoy traveling, this space could act as a personalized map of your travels by adding all of the pictures or souvenirs you bought during the journey. You could try adding a metallic finish to a wall for a modern, grungy look and decorate the rest of the room with items with the same finish.
When it comes to modern styling, nothing looks as stylish as a properly executed two-part theme. This theme could pick two colors, a dark, and light, to add depth and pattern to a living room. It could even occur in the smaller sections of the room, such as changing the color schemes of the cushion on the sofas or picking out two different sets of sofas with contrasting upholstery. Such combinations are also a favorite of interior designers and they use it extensively in creating exuberant living rooms.
Finally, using animal prints is an increasingly common sight in many living rooms. Historically, people placed the skins of hunted animals on the floor, near the fireplace. While fake skins are now preferred, these prints still come as rugs, placed near a fireplace. Apart from this, you could even design your furniture using animal prints or animal-based themes and carvings. Combining this with floral decor, pastel walls, and differently colored throw pillows adds contrasting tones which places focus on various objects in the space.
In conclusion, unlike a bedroom, the living room is a space that must cater to not only your tastes but also keeps that of your guests in mind. Regarding this, playing with different items as well as themes in the living room can greatly add to how luxurious it feels. Unsurprisingly, it is one of the few spaces in the home where bigger and bolder ideas are welcome and accepted. Thus, we hope that this article successfully helps you design your dream living room.
