COZY INTERIOR LIVING SMALL APARTMENTS

COZY INTERIOR LIVING SMALL APARTMENTS

Decorate the living room and make you feel comfortable

Good day, dear readers living room design  . Today we look at some of the interiors living rooms, suitable for small apartments. Good design is a small living room - it's an elaborate composition, in which a small area harmoniously coexist upholstered furniture, work space and dining furniture. The simpler and more concise selected style rooms, the easier it is to beat. Take, for example, the interiors presented in IKEA stores: a simple modern white furniture combined everything. Therefore, their ideas are often used to process one-bedroom apartments.
Another thing, if the owners are thinking about the more expensive furniture made ​​of natural wood and opt for a classic warm interior design living room . It is worth more attention to the zoning area. About the visual separation of the room, in order to separate the dining room from the corner of the TV, I wrote in detail in the subject: "The dining table in the interior of a small living room" . These ideas can be used to isolate the working area.
Anyone who believes that without shelving, screens or partitions living room does not normally divide, is mistaken. There are simpler options that are based on human visual perception of the features. For example, properly placed accent colors attract the eye to the right areas of the room, pushing her other band in the background. Wall painted in alternative colors, different floor coverings can also serve as visual separators.
On the group photo below shows the interior of a small living room, designed in warm monochrome colors - from coffee with milk to brown. The atmosphere of the room sets a relaxing stay. In its design, there are elements of oriental culture: it can be seen in the figures and vases on shelves, paintings, bent legs tea table, orange color decorative pillows.
In this photos clearly shows that the center of the focus of attention of the living room - an area where the sofa. View incoming is confined to a bright orange detail: pillows, candles, a vase and a lamp. As an additional room divider into two zones used carpets of different texture and its own source of light over the dining table.
We proceed to the living room, in the interior of which there is a work area . The room seems more spacious because its basically Bright colors: white, cream, green, and in the decoration of blue, yellow and pink. This is a good example of a professional working with color: bright pillows and pull a blanket account logged on to itself, and elegant desktop white light from windows visually dissolve somewhere in the background.
Design living room, shown in the next picture shows how it is possible to divert attention from a black screen TV, if the owners do not want to make it the centerpiece of the room. On similar methods we discussed in the topic: "TV Room: to be beautiful and comfortable" . In this case, the focus falls on the big table lamp and repeat it in the color scheme painting. The very same TV "hidden" between the ridge and the shelf with a vase of flowers.
Our generation is witnessing the rapid development of digital technology, fewer people read paper books. But to refuse bookshelves and cabinets while not all ready. Many of us have no idea how to create around himself a familiar cozy environment without your favorite publications. The other day I was sitting in line at a government department with a talkative granny 84 years old, she told us that in her two-room apartment of 16 ovens books. Mentally, I tried to put them in their dvushke and realized that for this I would have to move all the furniture.
When a large number of books have been an indicator of learning and intelligence of the hosts, but those days are long gone. And yet a couple of cabinets with these wonderful mediums will not damage the interior design apartment, and we ourselves will be comfortable among the familiar and dear to the heart of things.
My today's show would not be complete if I did not mention home textiles . In each of his topic, I do not get tired of repeating that this is a real "magic wand" owners of small apartments. If the area of the living room can not put decorative pieces of furniture, and even the question of the purchase of one chair is in doubt, we can always rely on him. Curtains, decorative pillows , blankets and bedspreads will set the right mood, warm the cold room, expand the space, decorate the living room and make you feel comfortable. The main thing is not afraid to experiment with color, and then the result will justify the expectations. Hopefully, this material was interesting and useful for you!

THE COZY INTERIOR IN THE LIVING ROOM WITH WHITE WALLS

THE COZY INTERIOR IN THE LIVING ROOM WITH WHITE WALLS

living room design ideas with white wall 

Today in living room design again we return to the topic of design in a small apartment living room and talk about how their own hands to create a warm cozy interior, if the basis for our main room to take the white walls.
White walls are very popular with designers, open any western magazine about interior design, apartment in the fashionable style of hi-tech, minimalist - all entirely white. On the one hand is nothing surprising in this, because this color is the perfect backdrop for all the compositions, taking it as a basis, the designer can demonstrate their skills.
On the other hand - the big white rooms often look uninhabited, soulless, cold and uncomfortable, and in this regard I have always wondered why these apartments enjoy doing it by designers from the Nordic countries, because the interior of the white bears cool and the most suitable place for him there, year-round heat. Consider, for example, this image odnushki small (36 m) from Sweden, I even look at her coldly.
In the topic "Apply knowledge of color in practice: achromatic color" we were introduced to the features of white. The first is its neutrality to other colors, and the ability to reflect light rays, which is the basis of its most useful features for the interior design - the visual space expansion. Simply put, a room with white walls to the human eye seems more spacious than any other of the same area. To make their homes more, they should at least visually - the dream of every owner of the small apartment, so the white walls for us is a very tempting idea. But how to make sure that our room did not look like the first picture, and were warm and cozy? That's what we talk today.

Choosing a floor in the living room with white walls

So, the white walls, we have already set the groundwork for future interior room, our task - to choose the right color of furniture and decor. And, of course, do not forget about the floor. If we want to make a warm cozy design of a small room, the wooden furniture and flooring is better to take dark colors (bright white walls will not add heat). Picking up the cover, do not overdo it: too dark color will create an unnecessary contrast, the most suitable option, will be the one when the floor is a few shades lighter than the furniture.
As you can see from the photos, the room with white walls, dark furniture and the floor looks more colorful than the interior in a soft light brown colors. However, both of these options are the right to life, and when properly selected textiles will meet our requirements of warmth and comfort, so it all depends on the preferences of the owners of the apartment. In addition, correct color of the floor in the living room you can always carpet.

Color scheme of the living room with white walls

Look at these two pictures of the same white living room, one of which is the "before" and the second "after." Is not it amazing transformation? A good example of how using only one fabric, you can create beauty and comfort in the house. In the living room carpet and changed the curtains, threw blankets, pillows add color and as a result our room an entirely new look.
To achieve this effect, the first step is to choose the right colors and textures of fabrics. For a basis we take warm colors: these include the whole palette of red, orange, yellow, green (with a predominance of yellow), brown. Some of these colors will look good on a white background in monochrome, and yet to achieve the best results, I would suggest experimenting with combinations.
The most suitable colors for the living room from the point of view of their psychological impact on a person considered to be a green and brown, in some cases, fit and orange. But the red and yellow are best left to bright accents. Both of them are strong boost of energy, exciting man, while our living room is designed for a relaxing pastime and recreation.
Speaking of appropriate color combinations for a small living room with white walls, I do not call for using in interior only warm shades, it is quite possible and the introduction of cold (blue range) tone, as in the photo of our living room "after." The main thing that their participation can be traced only in the details, and did not go to the front.

What fabrics are suitable for creating a warm interior room

To create a warm and cozy atmosphere in a small living room with the help of textiles plays an important role not only correct color, but also texture of fabrics. Smooth shiny materials such as silk, satin, satin, organza and viscose not the best option for curtains and upholstery, better use them for decoration decorative pillows . For our purpose it is necessary to take velvet, velor, velvet, tapestry and dense printed fabric. For blankets and capes nice soft fleecy knitted fabrics or large knitting of wool. A couple of shaggy pillows Lama - another nice and useful element of the decor cozy little living room.
Finishing touch to a cozy interior will be a variety of cute little things, decorative items, wall hangings, paintings, interesting light fixtures on the photos to this topic you can spy a lot of ideas. I hope you enjoyed my article today, and it will help you in creating your unique design a small living room with white walls!

CHOOSE A DESIGN LIVING ROOM 2015

Design guests in rooms - photos for inspiration

Once you have looked around and decided to make a difference not only in their own homes, but also in life, you need to think about the proper organization of your living space. It depends on you, how energy-field will be filled with it. Let's start with the design of the living room.

Small living room

Obviously, the design of a small living room to be materially different from the design spacious room. If space is limited, that every square inch should be used rationally as possible. For this purpose, suitable modular furniture for the living room. It can be placed so as to have the opportunity, changing place and location, it is easy to transform your home cozy corner in a room for receiving guests. Appropriate in this case will be items such frameless furniture like chair and pear bean bag. This chair can relax in the evening after work - though the soft contours envelop the whole body comfort. And when at the threshold will visit, you can either slide away into a corner, or use as a chair.
For a small room suitable for the living room wall, modern, not too overall, with lots of open shelves. On these shelves designers recommend to place flowers, photos, souvenirs, and in some cases - books and dishes. But clutter the small space furniture and too many things are not worth it. Each item should organically fit into the interior and to be relevant here. Minimum of decoration, simplicity, neutral colors will help to create a harmonious space even in a small living room. Visually enlarge the space will allow:
light ceiling, walls and floor,
transparent or delicate furniture,
transparent tulle,
proper lighting.
To visually expand the area and s tioning room to the bedroom and the living room can be used decoration (painting, painting, wallpaper pasting) harmonizing the two colors together. A very appropriate design method in a studio apartment. One of the walls crumble, for example, white color, and the others - in beige, or vice versa. Wall, which is different in color, can become the background for placing pictures, interior, indoor plants.

Spacious living room

If enough space, you can afford an interior living room in a classic style, baroque, art nouveau, and many others.
For classic living room suit with gilt mirrors, gilded lamps, antiques, wooden furniture. Very living room furniture (classic, retro, artsy Empire or any other style) is better to locate along the walls or in the corners. Doing so will significantly expand the space, and you can make a living in such a big group of friends.
To order your living room into a baroque, use murals, stucco ceiling, massive decorated furniture and sculptures. Of fabrics suitable satin, brocade, velvet. Curtains made of these materials will look at the windows just gorgeous.
A flight of fancy design gives the living room in a modern style. You can use cloth or paper butterflies, waves, handicraft, elegant cabinet and upholstered furniture.
Whatever style decor room is chosen based on the fact that each item must be in place. Thus, the central issue in the interior will be a fireplace, a couch and a coffee table, the original self-leveling floor. The combination of the large central lamp with local spotlight will highlight the all the dark corners and make the play of light and shadow, which will positively affect the energy of all the premises. Do not forget to "neutralize" and sharp corners, placing them near the plants.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOFA FOR THE LIVING ROOM

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOFA FOR THE LIVING ROOM

correct design of your living room with sofa 

Today in living room design we'll talk about how to pick up a sofa in the living room, what to look for when buying and what color upholstery is suitable for decoration of a room.
Purchase of upholstered furniture in the living room - it is responsible, which should approach seriously without taking hasty decisions. And not only because such an acquisition is designed for long life and is not cheap. The interior of a small city apartment sofa takes on the role of the central element, attracting to itself the focus, and its shape and color will set the general mood of your living room.
Important criteria to consider when choosing the sofa: functionality, usability, quality, value and, of course, the compatibility of the furniture with the style and color scheme of the room. In this publication, the emphasis I want to do it on the last point, as for the rest, we will go over them quite short, as information on the subject abound.
Those who live in small apartments, forced to choose functional furniture. Sofa-transformer can become an extra bed or home office (see. Theme "Transformers in our house" ), is practical furniture with built-in drawers for storage. And even if living conditions allow to do without all these tricks, big massive sofas with large decorative elements still not suitable for homes with the typical layout - rooms are too small. It is better to look at the simple and concise model without frills. Want to make your sofa look luxuriously - to invest in expensive high-quality upholstery.
Convenience does not always go hand in hand with functionality, and sacrifice them in favor of the latter is not recommended. It is necessary to find the optimal balance in which the new furniture will be fully satisfactory to you on these two parameters.
As for another criteria - price, it all depends on your ability and understanding, which is expensive, and that cheap. It is clear that high-quality products imply a higher cost than the furniture, designed for a short life. Although in our reality is easily accessible by beautiful design and songs of praise and sellers for 150-300 thousand rubles to buy a sofa with foam cushions, not like the one that was in the cabin (that sinned, for example, outside Moscow factory Estetica). So here I can only advise to be more careful in the first place to look beyond the appearance, and the fact that inside. Well, if the frame is made of wood (not particle board), and pillows will be batting, felt, down / feather, very reliable and good old spring combination with them.

Sofa, as an element of interior design living room

Sofa, as an essential element a small living room, must meet the style of the room. If you are staying on a simple model of the neutral form, to achieve the desired result, you can use upholstery, specifically its billing. For example, suitable for classical living tapestry, jacquard and chenille, to the style of minimalism - black leather, wool and cotton navy blue or gray. For owners of modern urban apartments with children and pets practical solution is inexpensive flock and microfiber. Covers for sofas in the rustic style can be stitched linen, as well as fabrics with high cotton and viscose. We are for the correct design of your living room !
To choose the right color of upholstered furniture guided by the color of the walls. If they are in your living room a neutral light, the upholstery is better to use rich expressive shades. The brighter they are - the more stand out sofa. White covers - a good idea for a living room with colored walls, especially when it is too obscured. And, of course, there is no point in buying a sofa to match the wallpaper - it just will merge with them.
The question you need to ask yourself when selecting colors for your couch - whether it used decorative pillows. The fact that some colors require reinforcement. In particular this applies an achromatic color that works great as a background, and in its pure form can lose their expressiveness.
To get the bright beautiful interior with properly spaced accents pillows require white, gray, black, cream and brown sofas, upholstered furniture most shades of green. Lack of decorative pillows quietly survive red, orange, yellow sofa and couch in blue, lilac and violet tones.
Widely used in upholstery found shades of brown . In the background, you can create a series of warm (so cozy house) combinations. By this color is well suited orange, yellow, green, pink. Very curious combination with blue and lilac. Important is the fact that the brown sofa always favorably with many of your favorite beige and cream walls.
In recent years, the upholstery is very popular gray. Ranging from light shades and up to the stylish graphite. Designers love it for its conciseness, versatility, precision shapes. Gray sofas look good in the interior with red, yellow, lilac accents. This color is also practical and suitable for families with children and pets - on such surfaces are barely visible stains and residues of wool.
Black sofas needs space, so living with such furniture should be light, with a minimal amount of other elements of the situation. For small apartments are the optimal partner of black - white , and for accents can take a red, turquoise, purple or yellow.
Lots of interesting color combinations can be created based on the green couch. How can hemp plant it will provide an excellent basis for the placement of red, pink, yellow, orange, blue pillows. Special attention is given noble classic combination of green and brown.
Red sofa - suitable solution for creating a cozy living room. It will look good on the background of gray, beige or light green walls.
And finally, another popular color, widely used in the upholstery of the sofa - blue. It will be good if you want to create a relaxing atmosphere in the room (because of its psychological effects on man - calm). Shades of blue are always to be found in the interiors of marine subjects. They belong to the cold scale, so often in city apartments combine with warm blue red, yellow and orange flowers.
Today, I talked about how you should pay attention when choosing the sofa in the living room and how to choose the texture and color of the upholstery to match the style of interior design. I hope this article was interesting and useful for you!
