Get the Look – Contemporary Casual Living Room

Category: ,

If you’re a fan of comfortable, no-frills design, a space like this contemporary casual living room could be exactly what you need. Modest but comfortable, it incorporates simple shapes and hardy textiles to create a clean and family-friendly environment. Warm wood accents and a few cozy pillows add a sense of comfort, but accessories are used sparingly and the overall atmosphere is one of pared down comfort.

If you want to recreate a similar look, opt for the simple lines of mid century modern furniture and fixtures. You can have a little fun with shape when it comes to accessories, but overall the lines should be pretty streamlined. A neutral color palette will work best, as bright hits of color could be a bit jarring.
