Before & After: Contemporary Living Room Design Online

Contemporary Living Room Design Online

Is it possible to create a warm and contemporary style in a monochromatic and industrial space? The owner of this one bedroom loft liked the warmth and layout of the space when the previous owner occupied it, but wanted less of a monochromatic palette. The white walls make a great neutral backdrop, but placing color strategically within the space is what would make it feel like home. One simple application to Decorilla for contemporary living room design online helped to create the perfect home decor for the client’s brand new condo. 

THE CHALLENGE

  • Defining living and dining spaces within the open floor plan.
  • Balancing warm and feminine decor within a monochromatic space.

THE INSPIRATION

The client picked images of transitional and contemporary living room design online to show her Decorilla designer what she liked. The results proved she wanted a living and dining room with simple, clean lines and warn, neutral tones. Artwork that the client owned introduced reds and blues that also helped to inspire decor selected by the designer. She provided several images for the designer to use to inspire the final design of the living and dining areas. It helped that she knew exactly what table and chairs she wanted, but it is not necessary, as long as you can provide visual examples of styles you like. Pinterest is a great tool to search for the images that best describe how you want your home to look. The examples provided helped Decorilla designer Lauren A. develop a beautiful contemporary style living area for the client.

THE DESIGN

Decorilla interior designer, Lauren, took the blank, white walls of this Boston loft space and designed a creative an inviting layout and color scheme. While the majority of the space still has monochrome tones, it is layered with colorful accents that enrich it. Online home design helped to easily and effortlessly elevate the design aesthetic of this client’s loft.

THE MOODBOARD

The winning moodboard created by Lauren A.


Given the choice between two different designer’s take on her design needs, the client felt that Lauren’s moodboard was exactly the style she was looking for. They both had a similar, well-functioning layout, but there was one subtle difference – the color red. Lauren’s warmer approach and incorporation of red tones really caught the client’s eye.

THE RESULT

The final look of the loft’s design is one of elegance and comfort, while still very modern and chic – a true contemporary interior design solution to marvel at. To take away from the starkness of all white walls, Decorilla designer Lauren recommended painting the walls with the color “Sterling” by Benjamin Moore. Colors from accent pillows, paintings, and plants are the final touch needed to make the loft feel like a home.
