The living room: the space where you invite your guests to sit down and join you for a cup of tea (or glass of wine) and a chat. Of course the living room can also be the room where you enjoy some quality time with your thoughts and/or a good book in solitude. Or veg out in front of the TV on a comfy sofa… so many possibilities!
Of course this means that the living room needs to not only be practical, but also pretty. And that means adequate legroom for movement, comfortable seating spots, window treatment that ushers in enough lighting (yet doesn’t blind you or your visitors), décor that speaks of your personal taste, enough colours and patterns/textures to instil some character, etc.
Let’s take a look at 20 living rooms that are quite perfect in terms of layout and furnishing/décor – which style tips will you spot in these pictures and recreate back home?
