10 Aesthetic Living Rooms And Tips To Help You Design Yours

Celebrate high ceilings. Lofty living rooms should be filled with an impressive light feature, like this stunning, oversized sputnik chandelier.

Floral fun factor. This red living room sends out cheerful summer vibes with a giant daisy-shaped coffee table and flower motif round side tables, alongside bright, inviting scatter cushions and a rainbow rug.

Open up the layout. A four-sided lounge seating arrangement feels cosy and is ideal for conversation, but consider opening up the aesthetic with a backless bench that allows the eye to travel straight over. It will make the sitting area appear far more welcoming than a fully closed-in arrangement. A busy wooden coffee table with decorative bowls and books add to the look.

Work the room. A corner sectional sofa arrangement draws attention to a fabulous corner window feature in this room.

All hail the hero. Neutral decor schemes don’t have to be plain or boring. Picking out just one hero piece can transform an understated space from “meh” into amazing. This mesmerising little piece is Frank Gehry’s Wiggle chair.

Use a unique chair, side table and living room lamp to create an appealing reading corner.

Make it natural. Warm wood tone, a natural woven large area rug and soft white walls make a peaceful setting. Add in a mature indoor plant for a fresh spray of lush greenery.

Bright and botanical. Cool grey, white and oak get an uplift from a plethora of small plants in this botanical themed living room.

Golden brown and black. This deep colour combination is a rich upgrade on a neutral idea. Light walls and flooring prevent the palette from appearing dull or dowdy. The circular chandelier helps anchor the space.

Casually cushioned. Many tufted sofa designs can appear a little stuffy and uninviting but sectional sofas like this cushiony soft design could not look more cosy. Add scatter cushions and throws in complementary tones for extra appeal.
