If a fireplace is the type of thing that keeps the room warm and cozy, you’ve probably seen this type of fireplace in private homes. They’re a great element for creating a comfortable and unique interior décor. There’s something about them that makes them very inviting. We’re particularly fond of the Mediterranean décor.
This living room, for example, features a fireplace which is almost invisible. It sits in the side corner and doesn’t take away the coziness of the room. The length of the fireplace is coordinated with the sofa and the matching chairs. The whole décor is very well balanced.
A spacious living room like this one, with a window covered in bricks that frames the space, can be interpreted as having a cold and unfurnished interior. An interior décor like this one is often defined by uneven proportions. In this case, the balance is even more minimalistic.
The fireplace is not the only warm feature in this room. The brick wall that separates the living room from the hallway and the bathroom still doesn’t feel that cold but at the same time it becomes part of the whole eclectic interior design, being flanked by wood-covered accent details and featuring the same beautiful greenish color.
If you want to keep the décor simple and modern, a single fireplace such as this one is enough. It fits perfectly in the corner, allowing the corner windows to fit in seamlessly. This also solves the problem of not having enough natural light which can be solved with light tiles.
A large fireplace can be an inconvenient for a small room. Nevertheless, if you choose a large fireplace such as this one then you can put it in the continuation of the library wall, over the sofa. And if you look at the large bedroom window, you can even sit comfortably in the armchair and read a book.
This particular living room is part of an open floor plan and its interior was designed to be flexible and adaptable to various situations and settings. This is a space which can either be a cozy space or a trilogy of comfortable spaces.
The whole interior design of this living room is meant to be flexible and versatile. It has large windows, a space for a small television and various seating options like the sofa, armchairs or coffee table. The area rug also has a geometrical design which matches the rug used for the living room in the case of this casual/ chic configuration.
Here’s a living room with twin beds with coffee tables on either side. One side of the room has two kids sharing a bedroom while the other is a full/ sleeping space with two large windows and a view of the surroundings. The narrow corridor with red walls is the dynamic space between these two areas.
A red trunk serves as a coffee table focal point for this simple and chic living room. It’s the perfect accent piece for the side table.
If you prefer a coffee table that has a more traditional or rustic design, consider a trunk side table. It will add texture and rusticity to the room, especially if complemented by exposed wood beams.
Swings are fun to plan or to listen to. They used to be popular a lot more until furniture made it easy to move them to another location or to store them somewhere else. But they can now finally be admired in a modern setting, when you put them on a side table or on a nightstand.
Round-top side tables are really practical when you want to add texture to a space or to make it feel more inviting and relaxing. Also, they can be very versatile and styles suit a variety of decors and layouts. So consider a bar table for the living room, a side table for the bedroom or a console table for the reading corner.
If you think your living room would be able to accommodate a side table on one end, then go ahead and make one. If not, you can opt for an ottoman which you can add to the living room or for a console table that matches the rest of the furniture.
When choosing a side table, pay special attention to the material, finish and color. The side table should be comfortable to sit on so make sure it’s a neutral and simple piece. It should also look good in the context of the sofa.
When choosing a side table, think of it as a piece of furniture that complements the sofa and in that regard it should also have similar characteristics. At the end of the day, it’s just a matter of looking for the right side table.
