For many people, it is their most lived in room after the bedroom but of course, it is the most social space in the house.

An outstanding collection of books and memories is perfectly housed in a feature book shelf. It is a timeless piece; forever elegant and chic. If you keep the overall structure of the shelf simple, you have the ability to change the housed objects and update the look and style of the room as often as you see fit.

Modern Opulence

Navy blue is a forever regal colour to use in home decorating. When couple with exposed wood grain, it simply oozes with elegance. This room is both modern and classic at the same time; a culmination of different furniture pieces from different styles.

One can never go wrong in home decorating when beige or chocolate brown are used. This colour scheme transcends most design styles but of course, the overall effect is governed by the shape of furniture you choose. In this case, the couches are a simple modern shape, but the room has been cleverly highlighted with bold details such as the candelabra, candle holders and the Asian head. Whilst still retaining the muted tones of the scheme, the coffee table lifts the entire room with its decorative surface. A contemporary yet classic touch.

Retro Chic

If you are a bit more daring, you can achieve an extremely aesthetically pleasing lounge room with a bit of vintage retro charm. If salvage and antique shop purchases are not for you, there are many furniture manufacturers recreating timeless and elegant pieces. Or, if you are on a budget, you can always mix between new and old items. As you can see, the chairs in the foreground are distinctly from the 70s, whereas the couch in the background, has a more modern shape. These two styles compliment one another in the perfect fusion between old and new worlds. Note how well the updated soft furnishings lift the room; the geometric carpet and pillows add another dimension.

Seaside Escape

If you find yourself endlessly daydreaming about vacations or the seaside, then why not create your own person retreat in your lounge room? The exposed timber rafters and chest which cleverly doubles up as a storage solution, gives a elegant nautical feel to the space. The ingenious use of different shades of cream and white, make room appear airy and spacious.
