The tricky thing about living room design is that it needs to suit all your own personal quirks while also being welcoming to friends and family. In the modern trend of open floor plans, the living room also has to mesh well with the surrounding rooms while still managing to set itself apart. Overall, living room is much more than a sofa and a television: it's a place where you should feel safe and happy. Where a nap is easy and sometimes getting up is a little hard. Each of these 20 living rooms has its own distinct personality, but all manage to create an amazing space where anyone would be lucky to kick up her feet and spend a few hours.
Strong red accents steal the spotlight in this modern setup, contrasted beautifully by the rich blue window chair. The colors are unexpected against the swathe of beige and white units in this space–and the best part is that these color pops can be changed out, without the expense of ripping out cabinetry and shelving, if you should become tired of your color choices.
Yellow is a bold design choice, but it's popular in adventurous kitchens for a good reason – it's a cheerful color full of energy and optimism, associated with cleanliness and freshness. Part of this energetic perception contributes to its association with the marketing of healthy foods. It's appetizing! Yellow is the color of ripe bananas and fresh citrus fruits like tart pineapples and lemons. And if you're working with an especially dark kitchen, there's simply no better way to brighten the space and let this warm natural tone bring nature to you. Check out our yellow room inspiration post to see ideas for the rest of the home.
Industrial is the word to describe this living space, backgrounded by black. A large winding ventilator fan and SMEG fridge block give white, while the majority converts to black. A simplistic look makes a black kitchen a winner. Clean black panels pop out beside a wooden knife holder and potted plant.
Lights and lamps should highlight your décor and make a statement if needed. Refined crystal chandeliers are the most popular ones for a feminine space, they can fit any style from vintage to modern and give an exquisite feel to the space. Sculptural lamps with petals, flowers and butterflies will make a bold girlish statement even in the simplest room. You can also rock various lamps of girlish shades like blush, pink and purple to complement your feminine living room.
What can add to your living room décor? First of all, a fireplace. It may be non-working or a real one, with candles or logs inside, decorated with molding or stone around, and it will definitely add more coziness to your living room. Lamps and lights can be used for accentuating a space. Bold brass chandeliers, unique mid-century modern floor lamps or geometric pendant ones taken in various colors will pop up in the interior besides giving some light.

Feminine living rooms are cute, inviting and soft like no other, whatever style you choose. By the way, the most popular styles are vintage, modern, Scandinavian, rustic and just glam. As for colors, pastels, purple, red and metallic shades create a cool feminine look. If you don't like these ideas, you can try neutrals with a couple of pastel touches. As for furniture, sofas, chairs, coffee table and ottomans are the most important items for rocking in this space. I'd like to include lamps on the list because they often create an ambience. Let's take a closer look at the units.
Industrial influences define this sleek space. The chairs and stools are from the Steelwood collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec – named after the strikingly unusual combination of materials used in their design. It would be hard to go wrong with such a nice view through expansive corner windows like those. Uncomplicated decor preserves the emphasis on the garden outside, and a nice blue rug enhances the connection with the sky.
