THE INSPIRATION: MID CENTURY MODERN LIVING ROOM IDEAS
When they were searching for living room design ideas they were drawn to mid century modern interior design. Part of the attraction is the shape of the furniture itself. Normally having straight, clean lines with accented smooth, curved angles, mid century pieces stand apart and are wonderfully kid-friendly. Minimalist in nature, a room in this style is rarely ornate and finishes usually use only one or two colors with few or no patterns. Pieces rely on the use of wood which is warming but can also include fiberglass for added interest.
COLLECTED AND COZY LIVING ROOM INTERIOR DESIGN
With an inspiring style to guide her, online interior designer, Anna T., started with the most prominent piece in a living room design, the sofa. She switched out the large, bulky sectional for one sleek lined and on lovely walnut wooden legs.
An oversized abstract painting directs the color palette with teal and deep navy accents bringing a calming feel to the room great for lounging after a long day. Iconic arc-shaped lamps provide additional, versatile lighting. In addition, long mid century modern style media console and geometric patterned rug accentuate the room.
With a distinct style that is appealing and comfortable pieces enhancing the livability of the space, Anna successfully created the room this family craved. Want to see more? Check out the whole online interior design project here.
