Timeless and light, neutral shades are often the go-to colours for those wanting to bring a more contemporary feel to their scheme. However, there is no rule book on how you should decorate your interiors, you can still achieve a contemporary space by simply mixing and matching different styles.

From décor and design to furniture, if you’re looking for inspiration on how to achieve an up-to-the-minute modern living room, you’ve come to the right place. Take a scroll through our blog for tips on creating the perfect on-trend look for the most used place in the house.

Minimalist Living Room Style

Less is more when it comes to minimalist design - keeping it sophisticated and clean is key when creating this look. Starting with colour palettes, we recommend opting for subtle tones of soft grey and white. Initially it’s important to strip the space back, not only should the interior feel minimal, the design of furniture and fittings should also be clean-lined and completely functional. Our Donato Grey Sofa is the perfect choice for creating a minimal interior scheme. With its sleek lines and stunning shape, the Donato boasts a number of different qualities, from smart technology to handy storage, without compromising on style or comfort. For a truly minimalist scheme, simply pair the stunning sofa with contemporary lampshades, hints of greenery and a striking canvas for a scheme that exudes modern minimalist style.

Bold Contemporary Design

Create a confident explosion of colour by introducing bold tones of bottle green and mustard yellows. It’s so easy to inject vibrancy and life into your living room, whether you are updating textiles, prints, wall art or even your sofa, there are many ways to add a burst of colour. Whether it’s a lick of paint or a full interior scheme, the key to harmonising different shades is to keep to the same undertone.  We recommend going for wonderful greens - opt for a dark tone on the walls and a softer shade on the sofa. Our Colorado Green sofa works especially well with pops of pink, structured black picture frames and simple finishes for a contemporary twist.

Wood Accents in the Living Room

For those looking to introduce an organic feel into their contemporary living room, we recommend bringing elements of wood into the mix. Not only do the natural tones add a stylish appeal to interiors but they also add texture whilst complementing the rest of the scheme. These finishes can be implemented in many ways, whether you incorporate it onto your walls or in subtle accents throughout the room, it is certain to add a contemporary feel to living spaces.  Our Cadini sofa in a soft grey finish works beautifully with hints of honey-toned wood and crisp white wood panelling for the walls, the mix of the different colour contrasts beautifully– creating a truly sought after look that will last will for years to come.
