Despite natural light to one side of this lower ground floor, the space comes alive at night. The area is divided into a games area with glass wine cabinetry display pertaining the bar and pool table from this super relaxed media area with an array of lighting controls.
The living room is designed to be a predominantly adult space with large TV and home bar, for entertaining friends and family. There is an open-plan living area elsewhere for the children to play.
Our objective was to create a relaxed, bright and airy living space with a contemporary edge. Making the most of the lovely south-facing aspect, we chose a calm blue colour palette, with pops of sunny yellow to achieve this effect.
This is an example of a contemporary living room in London.
Living Space Ideas and Designs
The social hub of the home; living rooms, sitting rooms and family rooms are where we head to lounge, entertain and and truly live our lives. As the most “public” rooms in the house, the ideal designs for living areas are not only welcoming, comfortable and practical, but also should offer a reflection of your personal style. When considering a living room redesign or designing your living areas for the first time, you should not only consider the kinds of activities that will take place in the space but also the kind of feel you want from the room. Whether you want a relaxed, cosy lounge space or home cinema, a fun family room for the kids, a bright and airy sitting room or even conservatory, or a grander more formal living room, you will need to start by making some practical choices about furniture and storage before then looking at decoration and accessories.
