A grey living room would look both formal and stylish. It’s a tricky color but it can be very beautiful when combined with other colors. And because gray is not a very dynamic color you should use some focal points in your room. For example, a zebra rug would make a great addition to a gray living room design.
If you’d like the room to look cohesive and well put together, then the color you use on the walls, in this case a shade of turquoise, should also be included elsewhere in the room, in the form of accessories such as an ottoman, a lampshade, etc. the colors don’t have to be identical. You can pick one color to use as an accent in the living room and incorporate it using a variety of patterns. Although each with their own unique design, the elements will be linked through color.
The first rule in arranging the furniture in a livingroom is to see where the wall plugs are and to avoid covering them with any furniture. If you do that it will only make things more complicated, as you will not have easy access to the outlet and you will have to use extendable ones and this way you increase the hazard risk. So avoid covering them. The second tip is to spread the furniture in an even manner all over the livingroom. Avoid placing all the furniture in one place, for example one one side of the room or near the same wall, as it will be totally asymmetric and it will give the viewer the impression of a “sinking ship”. You remember the “Titanic”.
A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
Throughout the years, the living room has transformed from a formal parlor-esque space designed for entertaining guests to a cozy and relaxing everyday place for friends and family to kick back in front of the television or share stories about their day. Today, the purpose of your living room depends greatly on the size of your home. In larger houses, a living room may still be dedicated only to hosting company, but in most cases a living room may fulfill multiple functions – from a home theater or makeshift office to a party space for your children’s sleepovers.
