We don't think there's any such thing as too much inspiration, especially when it comes to your most lived in rooms. That's why we've found some of the most fantastic living rooms to show you! If you're already thinking about having a revamp, don't call in the interior design team until you've seen these examples and if you think you're happy with your space, prepare to second guess that.

From simple and sweet through to all out luxury, we've found a living room for everyone, so get comfy on your (current) sofa and let's take a look!

1. A few pops of colour really lift a neutral sofa and make a rug easy to integrate

2. Large statement items will help to break up an understated feel. We love these oversized table lamps!

3. If you're going to try an open plan theme, let this perfectly coordinated colour scheme be your inspiration

4. Funky shapes and unusual materials have a huge impact on your cosiest space. All the metal in here is such a contrast with the soft sofa

5. You don't have to go overboard with furniture to make a big impact, especially if you have a great view and a big window

6. A little bit of tradition never hurt anyone. These chintz patterns look wonderful with the period fireplace

7. If you don't want to embrace a full living room feel, think about something more minimalist, like a single armchair

8. A rich mix of retro and modern styling will always create an eye-catching juxtaposition. This Chesterfield sofa works so well with modern art

9. Comfort doesn't always have to be king. If aesthetics are more important go all out, like this scheme has!

12. ​Don't just consider sofas and armchairs when it comes to living room seating. Window nooks are perfect for bookworms!

13. A television isn't a necessary focal point so if you have something better to look at, arrange your seating around it

16. Who doesn't love a room that won't be dictated to? Fairly neutral for the most part, we love the use of patterns and colours here, which really change the room's look and feel

17. Simpler can sometimes be better. This pared back set up looks great, welcoming and comfortable. What more could you want?

18. Don't forget to give your living room floor some consideration. If you can be swayed, parquet is the perfect choice. Elegant and stunning!

19. This contemporary rustic living room feels calm, cool and has us seriously considering more pastels for our home

20. For a sociable home, we love layouts that seem to encourage conversation and interaction. This corner sofa hits the nail on the head!

21. When all around you is grey, choose a bright colour to make your most treasured items stand out. This bright red sofa is working wonders

22. Traditional homes can make any colour work but old fashioned hues, like this bluebell blue, look incredible

25. You wouldn't need to go overboard with the décor in this space as the glass walls give you all the colour and excitement you need!

26. We love spaces that mix it up when it comes to furniture styles so this is a real favourite. Modern, antique and classic all together!
