The living room is one of the most important spaces in the home, it is where we enjoy the company of our family and friends when we receive them at home. It must be a modern, cozy and comfortable place, capable of reflecting our personality and style. Fortunately, this can be achieved through decoration.
At Lyn´s Furniture we know this is why we bring you these practical tips to decorate a contemporary living room in an easy and creative way.
Let’s start with the colors
Color is the base of every living room decoration, so we must pay attention to it. Neutral colors are ideal for contemporary living rooms, and will never really go out of style. White, beige or cream will look great on the walls and furniture.
An advantage of these colors is that they offer a feeling of spaciousness that reflects the light, so the room will look more spacious. To make it a bit more interesting, we can combine these tones with more vivid and vibrant colors, so we will create greater contrast.
To play with the styles
To add more power to our home, we can mix different styles, even if they seem totally opposite. The result could pleasantly surprise us. One option is to combine modern furniture with some vintage decorative elements, such as that rug that belonged to our grandparents, a baroque style lamp or a brick wall.
But we must remember that these ancient elements must be integrated into the decoration in a careful and intelligent way. In this way the room will continue to look modern but with personality.
Simple lines offer a modern twist
Furniture with simple lines is our best alternative if what we are looking for is a modern style. We can even combine straight and diagonal lines, getting some visual interest without overloading the space. Geometric figures work great in decoration, so let’s bet on elements with these shapes.
Let’s light up the room
We can say that, after color, lighting is one of the most important aspects. Playing with the lights and creating layers is a way to add warmth to the living room. Natural lighting will always be the favorite, so we must make the most of it. Let’s avoid using heavy curtains that obstruct the passage of natural light and clear the windows.
A good idea is to place lamps of different heights, especially in the dining room. Imagination will allow us to create an interesting concept that is attractive to anyone.
A decoration with character and style
We must not forget that the home should be the reflection of our personality and lifestyle, and this can be achieved thanks to the decoration. Handmade decorative elements can bring that touch of personality and character that represents us. We can even do them ourselves, because we will be able to reinvent the space completely and in a fun way.
The perfect combination of materials
Especially when the living room is open concept, we must learn to combine the materials so that there is harmony between all spaces. Wood is one of the best materials for floors or furniture, specifically in light tones. When mixed with textiles, we can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that will invite us to rest and relax.
As we see, it is very easy to create that contemporary living room that we so desire. We just have to follow these practical tips and let our imagination fly.
