Living room inspiration

by Amy Collins, Monday 20 April 2015

As estate agents in Bournemouth and Ferndown, here at YOUhome Bournemouth we love and appreciate beautiful and well considered home design. The hub of the home is usually the living room as it is a communication centre for friends, families and housemates. Interior design should reflect your personal traits and your creativity. Your living room is a great place to showcase this. We have found a selection of living room designs that inspired us and we wanted to share them with you. Happy decorating!

Window seat

Large bay windows add a sense of character to any room and if you’re lucky to have one in your living room, you should make the most of it. Window seats allow you to take advantage of the natural light and warmth as well as being a creative addition to your space. Add chunky knitted throws and comfy cushions to accessorise the area.

Arm rest table

This arm chair table is extremely useful if you’re looking to optimise space in your living room. Swap your space consuming table for this quirky table that attaches to your chair or sofa arm rest and have the perfect spot to hold your coffee and newspaper.

Bookcases and shelving

Storage in the home can be made to look attractive, and in your living room you should strive to make this a feature. Invest in large, floor to ceiling shelves, bookcases or cabinets to create ample storage space and accessorise them with plants and photos to add a personal, artistic touch. Shelves built into wall alcoves work in the same way and give the same illusion as a bookcase.

Corner sofas

The living room is the social core of the home and a corner sofa is a great addition to the room. The L-shaped design encourages interaction as well as being a unique design which adds character to the space. The design of the couch offers ample comfort and relaxing space, especially if you’re lucky enough to win the right angle seat!

Bursts of colour

If the current décor in your living room is neutral, you can add small bursts of colour to add something more to the room without redecorating. Do not assume that you need to stick to a colour scheme; compliment the room with small bursts of colour in the form of ornaments and flowers to add personality and freshness to the room.
