Luxurious Living Rooms

Whether you call it the front room, the sitting room, the family room or the den, the living room sets the tone for the rest of the house. If you create a luxurious atmosphere in the living room then the rest of the house will be sure to quickly follow. How are people creating luxurious living rooms in 2018? Colour, colour and more colour! The days of classy neutral greys are gone and in their place are moody, emotive colours such as turbulent violet, passionate red, and tumultuous turquoise.

Living rooms in 2018 are spaces that do the talking for you. Think of an injection of colour that makes makes a statement and creates a feeling that stays with its inhabitants long after they’ve moved on elsewhere. The best place to start your colour experience is those all encompassing living room walls. Statement walls, feature walls, exposed brickwork or colour blocking are just some of the best interior design ideas to play around with.

Colour blocking is huge this season. For those of you new to the wonderful world of colour blocking all you need to do is select a few shades from your chosen colour palette and incorporate them all onto one wall for a bold, seamless look. At first colour blocking might sound counterintuitive and a far too chaotic method of interior design but the effects are surprisingly good.

When it comes to your furnishings, nothing says luxury like velvet. The fabric is continuing to rise in popularity and is perfect for sofas, curtains, cushions, rugs and more. Soft fabrics and furnishings are so welcoming and comforting, the ideal combination for the living room. A luxurious living room is one that envelopes everyone in it, a cosy cocoon that is far too inviting for anyone to ever want to visit another room of the home.

Creating a luxury living room is easier than you think and doesn’t need to cost the earth. The easiest way to do this is by creating a focal point. Hanging artwork is often the quickest and most inexpensive way to do this. You can even use a photograph you’ve snapped yourself and get it framed or printed on a canvas. You can easily free up a wall to use as your focal point by changing where the TV lives.

Traditionally, mounting TVs to the wall has been the typical living room set up that we have come to expect. Choosing to house your TV on an entertainment unit instead frees up another wall to play around with, hang artwork on or whatever else you fancy. It’s also far easier to move your living room around when you fancy a change if the TV sits on a free standing unit.

Creating a luxury living room is easily achieved with just a splash of colour, a few interesting textiles and a strategically placed focal point. The ultimate luxury comes from sitting back, appreciating the space and admiring all your hard work as you kick back and relax at the end of a long, hard day. After all, life’s too short not to enjoy a bit of luxury from time to time!
