Because dark colors can make a room feel more closed in than welcoming, they only work in a living room like this that has plenty of natural light. The contrast in the wood flooring helps, too. For a creative answer to the standard sofa, this urban living room uses upholstered platforms and movable pillows that allow whoever is sitting to create their own comfortable posture on the platforms or the floor. On the other end of the spectrum we have this light wood and white living room. It's on the small side but plenty big for a cozy night at home.
Not everyone has the luxury of an enormous shower room like the one pictured here, but that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from its striking décor. Large slate gray tiles look great even in a small room, as large tiles generally increase the look of space in confined quarters. In this example, striking color is washed over the top of the sombre ceramics in the form of bright blue LED lighting. LED lights are great for use in bathrooms, and programmable sets will even allow you to change their color to suit your mood or the time of day.
Tranquility can be found in this understated bathroom. The window looks out on the peaceful scenery. Traditional carpets are placed on a wood planked floor. The rectangular freestanding tub sits next to a marble wall opposite a double sink bathroom vanity. These grey concrete walls border a sleek bathroom with marble vanity and round vessel sink. The shower features a teak wood floor. The ceiling is open and this is where greenery encroaches upon the room. This look keeps it simple with both grey and taupe tile surrounding the bathroom. A rainfall showerhead keeps with the straight lines of the entire design.
In an otherwise classic space, industrial and oriental themes are both popular choices for bathroom interiors. Exposed plumbing lends an authenticity to industrial styles and this communicates effectively with a bathroom's territorial glazing, while natural wood blends with porcelain, marble and slate organically for an oriental feel.
To give the space a character and customize it more, the owner placed a vintage suitcase on a stand as a storage piece and hung a basket for towels. This is really a cute idea to repurpose a couple of old objects and make your space more personal.
Strong red accents steal the spotlight in this modern setup, contrasted beautifully by the rich blue window chair. The colors are unexpected against the swathe of beige and white units in this space–and the best part is that these color pops can be changed out, without the expense of ripping out cabinetry and shelving, if you should become tired of your color choices.
This bathroom takes on a garden theme, bringing what lies beyond the sliding doors inside. Lush greenery covers the wall just behind the white oval bathtub. The sink has been designed in a unique barrel shape and the water flows from a stainless faucet that comes from above and out of a mirrored stone wall. The open roof and glass doors allow ample natural lighting. Drop pendant lighting is added for after the sun goes down. To make a head-turning bathroom there are many Beautiful Bathtubs to choose from.
The tricky thing about living room design is that it needs to suit all your own personal quirks while also being welcoming to friends and family. In the modern trend of open floor plans, the living room also has to mesh well with the surrounding rooms while still managing to set itself apart. Overall, living room is much more than a sofa and a television: it's a place where you should feel safe and happy. Where a nap is easy and sometimes getting up is a little hard. Each of these 20 living rooms has its own distinct personality, but all manage to create an amazing space where anyone would be lucky to kick up her feet and spend a few hours.
The tile wall of this bathroom was broken up with texturing. The vessel sink on the marble counter and pendant lamp bring in contrast against the crème. This white bathroom has an added flash of dramatic red marble, creating a shocking contrast. The strokes of grey in the marble floor is picked up in white and grey in the wall. Straight lines repeat in the commodes, bathtub, and sink.
This ultra modern living room uses its clean lines to create an overwhelming atmosphere that is clean and serene. The round columns in this living room divide the room and give an otherwise industrial apartment a bit of a romantic spin. In this smaller living room, the white color scheme makes things feel more open.
