Style in the Living Room

June 6, 2011

Such wonderful colors in this room, though for my own living room I think I’d want to break it up a little bit with a few warmer colors here and there. What do you think? Would you mind having a room composed entirely of cool colors like blue and gray?

I love this style. Lots of decorative details, anything but pretentious, lived-in, homey, and personal. Via trendey.

I can never resist wood beams, especially against a white ceiling. I also love heathered fabric like the gray on this sofa. The home of Linnea of Linneas Blommande Värld which is currently for sale, via desire to inspire.

Love that lounge chair and I also love that both of the chairs appear to be in their original upholstery which gives the room a nice vintage feel. Via Dream Rooms.

Oh, to have a living space this large! Don’t feel like you have to fill “empty” spaces. Artists use negative space in their work, and so can you when designing a room! If your room is functional and makes you happy, there’s no need to bring in more stuff just to fill it up. Photographed by Andreas Mikkel Hansen for Bo Bedre, via My Scandinavian Retreat.

These colorful flowers illustrate beautifully how a pop of color can transform a room. If you’re not much of a green thumb, the same effect can be accomplished with any small accessory like a throw pillow. Also, how about that light fixture! I’m not always one for very out-of-the-box lighting, but this one looks like it absolutely belongs in the space. I think that’s the key to selecting unconventional pieces; they have to work with the spirit of the room. It’s no wonder this room is so expertly put together because it was styled by a favorite of mine, Cia Wedin, photographed by Magnus Anesund for ELLE Interiör SE.

    That large living area with all the “negative space” is FANTASTIC. Exactly what I like–minimal, simple modern furniture, wood flooring and brick walls to add warmth, and best of all…no clutter! It’s great.
