Modern interior design ideas for the living room

Modern trends in the living room design are aimed at combining with the dining room and kitchen to create a space of a comfortable family for communication with each other and with guests. We present photos of modern interior design from Germany, the USA, Great Britain, Finland, and Australia. Designers from three continents use the same organization of space and the selection of color combinations suitable for a large living room.

The living room in a modern house is 3 in one: a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen. The absence of partitions increases the room's area, making it easier to move around the house. You can easily communicate with each other when you are in the same room. Thus, modern design trends are spacious rooms for day activities and small rooms for sleeping.

To properly plan an open living room, place the dining room next to the kitchen.

The living room can be located anywhere, but preferably next to the dining room. Choose furniture and decor in one color scheme. You should not have more than three colors for the ceiling, walls, floor, and furniture with the decor. Change only the shades and color saturation. Use neutral natural colors.

In 2018, the most popular colors in the interior design were white, gray, and beige. To give brightness and individuality, add a drop of bright color, such as in this living room, created by German designers.

Living room with elevator and sloped ceiling at Villa Barvon in Australia

Here is a great idea for the design of a living room in a modern style: white walls, a floor covered with grey ceramic tiles, a ceiling and a loft hanging over a sofa and a kitchen table made and light boards. With the finishing materials of the living room, the furniture is combined in modern style: white glossy facades of the kitchen, a table and chairs of light wood, a sofa with white upholstery. The interior was light and airy. For accents, blue and blue colours are used.

Open layout of the living-room in the house of Hobb's

In the photo above, the idea of designing a living room with a kitchen and a dining room in warm pastel colours. A light golden shade of the floor from a massive wooden board is combined with beige walls. To the color of the floor and walls do not merge, white wide skirting boards and white casing around the door and window openings are used. Kitchen cabinets with glass doors and kitchen island are also white. To better illuminate such a large room, there is an entrance door entirely of glass, a series of narrow windows and a window of the second light.
