A contemporary living room incorporates clean cuts, sharp lies, lots of accessories and ample lighting. Besides lower pitched roof profiles also create a dynamic impact in the overall look. In order to slot in all these elements, one has to employ a strong architectural element and this is possible only if the home-owner is an architect themselves or a professional is allowed to step in.

In order to bring in a high end interior design with a contemporary touch in the living room, one has to use different patterns, textures, prints, colours and other design elements together. However, it is crucial that all these elements must be perfectly balanced for a look that is well coordinated. In case the house is going through a remodelling, one can visit a designer furniture store to lay hands on plush sofas, matching sectionals and contrasting bookcases. Some stores also deal in make-shift or actual fireplace mantels made up of wood; these furniture pieces can be made to match with media consoles and coffee tables to complete the look.

Here are a few ways to obtain a balanced and elegant living space that emanates contemporary artistry.

  • Lovers of red can actually paint the entire room in this colour. Interestingly enough this fiery tone can be subtly balanced with pops of white here and there. Another key is to paint the ceiling white for equilibrium. Accessories such as white curtains, floor lamps, cushions, wall frames, coffee tables etc can be used.
  • Small living rooms can be filled up with essential furniture like a sofa set, coffee table as well as a dining set! By using correctly sized furniture, the space can be given an airy feel. It is good to have huge unobstructed walls of windows for letting in light and openness. But ensure that the furniture is light and small in size to let people move around freely. Besides, keeping the colour on a subtle shade such as those of fawn, beige, light yellow or baby pink is advisable.
  • Having an all white space is the safest and most popular contemporary space design. Several high end interior designers use this technique to do up a space with the correct combination of textures; with crocheted throws, some cosy looking nubby rugs and a rough-hewn linen sofa can actually add depth to this monochromatic set up.
  • Book lovers who think book cases are inevitable can create a pretty little reading nook in the living space. It is best to keep a plush chair beside a window with the book rack readily accessible close by. A floor lamp can also be placed for late night reading.

After all the living room is the only place of the house where one can pour in their heart and soul. Besides doing up this space is a great way to showcase the artistic flair and panache of the owner. Thus investing in designer furniture is a great way to achieve a contemporary design in the living area.
