The pitched roof in this stylish home from visualizer Vizuall gives the living room a bit of height. Coupled with the low, angular sofa and modern sling chairs, the contrast creates visual interest while serving its practical purpose. Speaking of creative roofs and ceilings, the exposed brick ceiling in this living room from the same visualizer is so stunning that it's easy to get lost in it. It stands again in contrast to the simplicity and clean lines of the neutral colored furnishings.
Luxurious classic materials like dark wood and brass panels make this living room look rich and comfortable. The prominent collection of glass bottles is a whimsical combination of attractive and surreal. Historically styled crown molding and a modern geometric ceiling medallion set the stage for this interior that combines modern furniture with antique decor. The floor lamp recreates a 1907 design by Mariano Fortuny.
Grey and yellow are one of the most popular combos for various types of décor because it's refreshing, vivid and matches various décor styles. This combo looks great for all kinds of spaces, from kitchens to bedrooms, and today I'd like to have a look how to rock these colors in a living room.
Decorating with grey is a clear thing as this color is good for everything: walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, upholstery and accessories, just vary the shades to get what you like. If you want something airy and neutral, choose dove grey, if not – charcoal grey is right what you need. Black will also look good and contrasting with grey and yellow; if you want a lighter look and airy feel, add white or cream. As for yellow, this color is more difficult to use it right and not to get a tasteless result or not to make your living room too bold. If you already have a gray living room, you can add just some yellow accents that can be changed for other when you are tired of them: a console table, a couple of frames, a mantel, pillows and throws. You can also add some bold yellow artworks and stools or ottomans to enliven the room.
What can add to your living room décor? First of all, a fireplace. It may be non-working or a real one, with candles or logs inside, decorated with molding or stone around, and it will definitely add more coziness to your living room. Lamps and lights can be used for accentuating a space. Bold brass chandeliers, unique mid-century modern floor lamps or geometric pendant ones taken in various colors will pop up in the interior besides giving some light.
This French-style living room has an eclectic design that's familiar, but is unified with a color story that is springy and pretty. The use of concrete and wood turn this modern living room into a testament to mid-century design. This teak wood living room is perfect for a living room that doubles as an outdoor entertaining space. A spacious living room dominated by a soft gray sectional is perfect for a family that wants to relax in style.
Copper wall paneling gives this kitchen a bit of a design edge. Yellow Eames-inspired chairs are the ultimate pop of color in this otherwise neutral design. Stainless steel fixtures are all the shine this kitchen needs for its luxurious aura. Black and wood as used here are entirely minimalist, with every kitchen item hidden carefully away in recessed cabinets.
Cool greys and creamy whites are the perfect calming influence for this modern kitchen. The pops of yellow in the cabinets and backsplash of this kitchen make it extra welcoming. Done the wrong way, wood paneled cabinets can look kitschy, but the horizontal grain in this kitchen are elegant and sleek. Keeping the shelving in the island open in this sunny kitchen make the whole room feel bigger.
Each material seems carefully chosen to accent the brighter portions of the color palette. Yellow brings out the sunny tones of the wood, and the polished coppery bronze seems to reflect the depth of the orange. Other accents are more subtle but still fall along the spectrum of spicy appetizing hues – the deep carmine radio and coffee grinder and sage green scale are just two gorgeous examples.
Minimalism always works great in a kitchen, provided it has enough storage potential, which this one definitely does. Using a lowered ceiling in a room without windows can sometimes make a space too dark but the use of light materials with a slight sheen helps to maximize the lighting from other sources.
