Family House East DulwichContemporary Living Room, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Assess the layoutOnce you’ve removed day-to-day mess from your living room, you should have a clear walkway that will save you having to hop over obstacles. Allocate storage for items that have to stay, such as magazines, favourite toys and remote controls, to help you limit what you have in the room and enable you to find things easily. To create a sense of order in the rest of the room, try to introduce symmetrical elements, such as pairs of candles and standard lamps.
At the far end of the family zone is a comfortable sofa where the kids can watch TV. Dadswell chose grey for the wall to give it a contemporary feel, but ensured it was a light enough hue to keep the space bright.Lime green Roman blinds and bright cushions continue the midcentury colour scheme.Sofa, Sofa.com.

What Houzz users are commenting on:
I like the parquet floor here and light walls, though a bit cool in tone for my liking. I like all the individual colours - turquoise, fresh lime/olive green, flashes of red and mustard. I'm less sure that the blinds work for me and I'm not confident about blending/pulling different prints, patterns and textures together...
