Formal Living Room

contempo glam

Deck the halls with sass and class! This chic living room showcases the best of contemporary design. Colour, texture and elegant architectural form come together in a space that’s as unique as it is luxurious. Here’s how to get the look, with tips and tricks for the holidays and beyond.

Shop this room:

Tip 1: DON’T BE AFRAID OF COLOUR

The deep emerald hue of this velvet armchair is everything! In a basic neutral, it wouldn’t have the same impact. A small pop of look-at-me colour is all it takes to add instant drama to your living room.

HOLIDAY TWEAK: Use bright ornaments to add extra hits of colour throughout the space.

Tip 2: EMBRACE ART DECO ELEMENTS

This early 20th century design style is known for its elegance and luxury. The geometric lines and gleaming polished chrome of this eye-catching coffee table are classic art deco motifs.

TRY THIS: Work an art deco piece such as a glass coffee table or mirrored credenza into your living room for an instant wow factor.

Tip 3: ACCESSORIZE, ACCESSORIZE, ACCESSORIZE!

We anchored this living room with a big, bold sectional in “statement white.” (Sure, white is neutral, but it makes a big impact in leather.)

DESIGN LESSON: The perfect complement to a neutral sofa are shaggy throw pillows, a tonal rug and a beautifully textured ottoman in a sweet pastel hue.

Tip 4: CLAIM MORE LIVING SPACE

By adding a bench ottoman and floor runner, we’ve given this foyer the living room treatment. It provides more social space, while sending a warm welcome to everyone who walks in the door.

DESIGN HACK: Use your staircase as a mini wall; here, we hung wire sculptures, then used them to display holiday cards.
