Out of all the areas in your home, the living room is perhaps the perfect place to make a style statement. Instead of starting a bathroom or kitchen remodel project, you should consider focusing on your living room and making it as warm, inviting, and stylish as possible. The living room is where you spend most of your time sharing moments with your family and friends, which makes it all the more important to style it in a way that evokes warmth and comfort. Here are five ways to create a warm, contemporary living room that will surely impress your family and your guests.
Choose Earthly Colors
Nothing evokes that warm feeling better than earthly colors for your walls. Warm colors such as beige, light brown, baby blue, and grey provide a pleasant atmosphere that reminds you of those luxury vacation homes with grand fireplaces. Dark shades can do that as well if you are into deeper hues. As much as possible, stay away from bright and vibrant colors as they tend to distract the eye.
Throw in Some Textiles
Textiles give the place a warm vibe due to the layering effect it produces. Think of old knitted sweaters that are extremely warm and comfortable. Putting textiles like curtains and rugs in your living room gives the same effect. Curtains are great for blocking out undesirable streetlights and they also add texture and warmth to a room. If you want to accentuate your sofa, using cushions are a great option to add interest to your room.
Cover the Floor
As mentioned above, rugs and carpets are a perfect choice for a warm and cozy living space. Leaving your floor bare and uncovered makes your living room feel cold and uninviting. We recommend getting a rug or carpet with a design and color that goes well with your living room’s color palette. Also rugs and carpets are great for absorbing some of the sounds that bounce off hard surfaces, reducing the noise and allowing for a more relaxing atmosphere.
Get Minimalist, Designer Lighting
In any interior design project lighting plays a central role in terms of style and functionality. Proper lighting is what connects all your living room pieces together to complete that comfortable and intimate feeling you are looking for. In order to ensure maximum visibility and comfort without compromising on aesthetics, select lighting fixtures with high technical performance, such as:
Use the Elements of Fire
If you really want to give that overall cozy look, then there is no better option than to go to the source, which is the element of fire. Fire provides warmth and light, but you need to incorporate it properly into your living room. After considering all other fixtures in your space, you should bring your attention to the fireplace, which should be the focal point of your living room.
