Putting the words timeless and modern in one sentence might seem like the perfect paradox, how can something be modern yet timeless at the same time? The answer is simple, in order for a room to be timeless there has to be key elements that create a seamless appeal while still being up to date and modern with the trends that are currently taking over the home interior design space. With that being said, meshing the two together might seem more of a task, then what it actually is, here are timeless living rooms that scream modern in their very own unique kind of way.
One look that is currently very much on trend as it has been thus far is lacquered walls; however, this look has mainly remained as part of the kitchen area. But with that being said, the trend is slowly migrating to the living room and we are loving it. The living room can always make great use of shiny walls that bring everything together in one simple space.
Keep it Laidback
When it comes to the living room many of us want to keep it chic and elegant but sometimes you really want a laidback look where you can relax while being timeless. That is exactly what this look will give you, consider having a comfy couch and adding chairs that are less structured and have a sleeker appeal to them.
Large entertainment centers are no longer the go-to look, instead, sleeker spaces are. Therefore, floating shelves are an excellent element to have. They can be hung from different areas of the living room and allow you to display the décor you would like displayed instead of having it hidden.
Bringing in bold colors, textures, and patterns is excellent to bring a twist of modern as its core element. The bold contrasts will bring that unique element that brightens up the room, in order to bring that timeless appeal, you want to ensure you add contrasting bits in neutral.
Time and time again we will always reiterate the benefits of having colorful chairs as part of the main décor. The colorful chairs add contrast in the space while making a statement in their very own right. Choose a bold color that is still subtle enough that it blends with the room’s natural aesthetics.
When considering how to create a layout for your living room choose a rounded look. The rounded look feels charming and appealing in its own right while giving you the familiar aesthetics we all know and love. Additionally, a rounded layout allows you to work with tables and accent chairs that need a bit of a spotlight.
Black and White
When it comes to color, black and white will forever remain a classic. Add them in together for a twist on a classic or even in patterns for a beautiful contrasting element. The key is having them be focused as part of the core of your décor without taking away from what you have to offer.
Having natural elements not only allows you to bring a hint of uniqueness, but it further emphasizes what you already have. Add a plant or two to the room to bring forth that crisp, natural appeal that completely makes sense. You could even add a daring plant-based wallpaper as well.
Wallpaper is always an excellent idea, there is something about it that makes the room have a unique twist. Additionally, a wallpaper allows you to make a statement in a big way, without having to add different bits of furniture that are not much needed in the space but are added to create a “filled” effect.
Linen Sofa and Leather Chairs
A linen sofa works well in any room because of how versatile it is, regardless of what your décor looks like a linen sofa helps bring the space together. Whereas, the leather chairs add a modern twist. Leather has an edgy element, it that is felt in the entire room, without taking away from what you already have.
