Get the Look: Contemporary Living Room

Category: ,

One of the most popular rooms I’ve ever worked on is this contemporary living room. Even though it was a few years ago people still ask about it. I chalk up its popularity to the fact that it’s comfortable, family-friendly, and is neither too modern or too traditional. Just about anyone could walk into this space and imagine themselves living in it.

If you want to create a contemporary living room like this one I recommend keeping the colors neutral and the lines fairly clean and modern. Add comfort with upholstered furnishings and through the use of soft accessories such as pillows and throws. And like with any room, try to add some sort of organic material in order to offset all the manmade materials in the room – in this case it was done with the leather-top stools and the rattan basket under the console table. It softens all the straight lines and hard edges, making the space more livable.

Don’t put too much stock in trades who give free estimates over the phone. A plumber or electrician can’t properly diagnose an issue unless it’s in person. A free estimate given over the phone is likely to go up significantly once he or she is on-site.
