For an elegant but informal living room, you can and you should inspire yourself in the image above: a beige sofá, with white side tables, a metallic center table, golden wallpaper (patterned or not), a white and golden foot lamp and an unusual mirror. The mirror you’re seeing is Venice, by Boca do Lobo and the lighting by DelightFULL.
Again by DelightFULL, Coltrane suspension. But the star of the image is the amazing light brown tufted sofa, at the Paramount Hotel in New York City.
This blue velvet armchair with a patterned back is so perfect for contemporary living rooms. The golden side table is the perfect match.
Maree Sofa by Brabbu is inspired in the Scottish lake with the same name. A beautiful velvet piece for contemporary living rooms.
Aged wood and fabric for the perfect rustic-modern living area.
Grey is always a good idea. Try to pair your grey sofá with an animal leather rug and your informal living room is ready for the funniest and happiest visits.
Or use a fur carpet and get a Scandinavian style.
Grey is good for an elegant and chic living room as well. Mainly if you have that river or sea view… Classic sofas and a black center table for the coziest room.
Talking about cozy living rooms: this unusual contemporary 2 seater sofas are perfect for a lounge area.
It’s not difficult to love these green velvet sofas by Brabbu with legs in aged casted brass. Elegance is the word for the Malay sofa, and that wooden sideboard the perfect pairing.
Brown will always be a good choice for sofas and for every kind of living room.
This luxurious interior would never be the same without this contemporary brown sofa.
This vintage sofa at the image above was the perfect choice for a romantic and feminine living room. Every single detail is just perfect, starting with the center table and ending with those pictures on the wall.
The same in this case: a beautiful leathered 2 seater sofa with the perfect shade of brown. The frames on the wall are completely modern (though a bit minimalistic) and the round pillows imitating bicycles wheels are so cute, don’t you think?
For a less vintage and more contemporary living room, try a lighter brown shade for your sofa. And what about that suspended fireplace?
Let’s jump from browns to stronger colors. Marsala was chosen as the color of the year by Pantone and it really is a must-have for your interiors.
Gold and browns are a perfect match for this color.
Celestial blue isn’t only 2015’s color of the year – it’s the color for every single year. So modern and beautiful it hurts. Golden again as the perfect combination.
And darker shades of blue are beautiful tones for velvet sofás.
Green is a must have too. This olive green pairs very well with a grey wall, a golden lighting and a big carpet.
And this mint green with a copper mirror and a big plant beside it.
Pistachio green is a beautiful color too. And this sofa really is amazing for big living rooms.
Dark green sofas and dark grey leathered armchairs turn out to be an elegant combo. The icing on the cake is DelightFULL’s foot lamp, Simone. The perfect name for a visit.
Why not choose beige or white sofas? And leather is easy to clean. Choose a beige leather sofa, a fur blanket, a big carpet and voilá: now you have your perfect living room.
Can’t stop loving this ambiance. The rustic floor, walls and ceiling; the vintage armchairs, the contemporary center table and the white sofa… I would add a copper lighting and this space would be just perfect.
If you think that white is too plain, bright up your white sofa with patterned pillows.
Or a simple blanket.
The truth is: velvet really is a beautiful fabric for sofas. It gives that mid-century look to any room and can be mixed with several different materials and colors.
Don’t you love it with wood?
Ochre yellow is that color that looks just perfect in velvet. And this sofa is so elegant.
Are you in love with this color too?
Purple is also a beautiful color for sofas. And it looks so good alongside that leathered armchairs with metallic details.
If you have a light sofa and a dark floor, you should use a rug the same color as your sofa – the effect is great.
Try to mix strong colors. It’s risky but it can turn out to be great. This tufted green sofa pairs very well with the purple pillow.
Marsala again with colorful pillows.
Those blue velvet sofas are a God’s product. The grey carpet could not be better.
Tufted sofas have that royal look, don’t you think?
And they can have funny details like this one in yellow.
Your sofa can be the most beautiful thing on earth, but if you put it by itself in a room, this space would feel empty. Get some paintings, unusual pillows, colorful blankets and everything you may need to spice up your living room.
Be inspired by this amazing example: nature patterns at the pillow and some real plants in the room. Very green, very good.
Flowers are happy elements for decoration projects – and not only for women.
The same with fur. Scandinavian style is so simple and so elegant. And you can achieve it just with a few fur elements and by using lots of white.
For a traditional living room, you ought to use velvet sofas and lots of golden details. Brown is always an option to pair with yellow and eclectic foot lamps are mandatory.
I won’t give up on pillows. This purple Colette sofá by Koket looks great too with those blue patterned pillows and the geometric mat.
Use pillows frequently and choose modern patterns like dots and stripes.
And don’t forget ethnic and animal patterns.
For a total Scandinavian look, a white sofa is the perfect choice.
As well as vintage industrial lighting and fur details.
You don’t need to always choose the beiges for a more formal design: be bold on the color choice for your sofas and chairs and get your perfect, happy living room.
