In this airy lounge-diner, all of the main items of furniture have been kept pale to match the walls, which makes the addition of a chartreuse area rug all the more unexpected. The zingy color works beautifully against white, and smaller black side pieces.

Glowing Interior Designs

A set of sparkling interior designs with fresh features to bring interest and color to the home.

Our first visit is to an attic above the old fishermen's harbour of Camogli, a village near Genova. The project, by architectural firm gosplan, aimed to incorporate a living room, a kitchen, a studio, two bedrooms and a bathroom into the flat, despite the awkward shaped gambrel roof and the tiny floor area. The outcome is described as being halfway between existenzminimum (a subsistence dwelling) and a fashionable Le-Corbusierian cabanon.

Couture House in Tel Aviv

Striking modern architecture mixed with elements of traditional home style.

As is typical now in modern life, an entire wall has been dedicated to home entertainment-though on this occasion the design incorporates an attractive bank of wooden fuel for the fire that has been moved to a second billing position at the side. This shuffling of priorities allows the TV to be enjoyed at the optimum position whilst avoiding heat damage, but still allows the homeowner to enjoy a cozy fireside ambiance as an alternative to the hidden heating system.

In the living room, a white sofa that would look at home in a spaceship swoops into position in front of a TV wall that has an integrated sound system and concealed media cabinets beneath the screen. The ceiling cutaway forges a path from the lounge area around to the kitchen and dining spaces, revealing an overhead river of light.

Futuristic Penthouse with Twin Toilets!

This home would suit those who would love to live in a space station-but could you cope with the communal toilets?

There is inspiration for rooms all over the home in this fresh looking dwelling, so let us see which ideas we can borrow starting in the main room. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a long open space, but there are several factors at play to prevent it from appearing plain. The first element is the stripe of glossy teal created by a run of wall units on the kitchen side. The base units are knocked back in a more subtle shade, so that the left wall does not overpower the lounge area on the right.

Spacious Apartment With Family Friendly Decor

See how this apartment design achieves attractive and original decor solutions in a modern open plan space.

To begin with a neutral palette, like this creamy sofa and rug ensemble, we can see that the series of swatches across the canvass picks up not only the paler hues, but works through the spectrum to tie in every shade right through to the black accent cushions. Of course, your wall art doesn't have to appear as a spectrum, but look for pieces that work all the way though your color story, from light to dark.

Ideas to make your living room somewhere you'll want to lounge in.

The first apartment has the foundations of a monochrome dream, with striking black and white chevron rug, and snow-white sofa and accent chairs. However, as you wander a little further into the scheme warm notes appear in the form of purposefully placed red home accessories such as a large plant pot and a scattering of rosy vases in the display nooks of the built in bookcase.
