Inside any home, one of the most important rooms and where more life we do is without a doubt the living room. This is the place where we have fun, where we receive visits and even where we have dinner. Because of all this, it is very important to have a good decoration that allows us to get the most out of it. To achieve this, it is necessary to know how to choose each and every one of the furniture that will be part of this room.
Combine different styles
According to contemporary interior design trends, the most common approach is to be eclectic, combining pieces of different styles and adding accessories to create a warm atmosphere where we can tell the stories of our trips and spend time with family and friends.
If we focus on the interiors of the duplex apartment that Atelier Ligia Casanova designed in Lisbon, we will realize that it is an excellent representation of this eclectic style. The use of a shelf and a two-story storage unit, with its own sliding staircase, frames the double-height living room.
In the center of this living room, a blue carpet Rhodes and another gray Silaï. This is responsible for creating a relaxing atmosphere that integrates with the walls while the sun invades the room through the balcony doors.
The Mediterranean light is amplified with the inclusion of Canevas and Knotwork in this home in Israel, a house and garden designed by Levy Chamizer Architects in a city near Tel Aviv. The boundaries between the outer and inner areas are blurred with the addition of the flowered Canevas carpet by Charlotte Lancelot.
In its decoration we find an abstract floral pattern that recalls the vegetation surrounding the house. The Aram tables, designed by Nendo for GAN, also take up these color tones and continue to blur the interior / exterior boundary.
Project Living in yellow
This other project is found inside a historic building. It has a living room with four glazed openings that act as doors and that face the street. All this within a generous space defined by wooden floors and designer furniture elements. Here, the seating modules and carpets form an island in the center of the space. The yellow color is used as an accent throughout the apartment and resonates with the more neutral palette used for the rest of the elements.
The importance of a carpet
Although it may sound strange, a simple rug can have a great impact on the decoration of any room. The clearest example we have in this project in Tallinn by DM3 and Dimitri Pisarenko. This space is defined by its high ceilings and its generous spatial proportions.
The project uses the kilim carpets Siracusa and Palermo, both designed by Sandra Figuerola for GAN: these rugs attract attention and define the areas around which the furniture is organized, which provides functionality and structure to the home.
Its colorful geometric patterns unify the eclectic mix of materials and furniture.
