Contemporary living rooms are an ever increasingly popular choice for people. However the clean lines and minimalistic look can make a space appear cold and sterile. There are some small and very easy ways to make your contemporary living room be a warm and welcoming room.
Incorporate nature and use colours that tie in with the outdoor scenery.
Bring nature inside the living room by adding plants. Green leafy plants are a good option for a modern space, bringing with it a fresh and happy feeling.
Using a pop of colour is also another way to warm up the feel of an otherwise sterile living room. The colour you choose will be your accent colour and can be repeated in small ways throughout the space. For instance, in the picture below the use of a warm orange accent colour is used for the curtains, cushions and art work, creating a cheerful ambience in a room that would otherwise look very stark and sterile.
Using wood introduces a beautiful natural element into your contemporary living room, whether it is used for flooring, furniture or accessories. A fireplace certainly physically warms up a space, and because it is also a natural element, it is a forever changing display of warm colour.
Add different textures to cosy up your living room with the use of different fabrics. A plush shaggy rug certainly adds comfort, defines an individual area and also looks great.
