Apartment living room décor means you get to cut corners on size, but you should never cut corners with style. We love this modern look, all based around this sofa. When colour meets texture, that’s when the magic happens.
With design pieces ranging from classic Art Deco (that statement sofa!) to mid-century modern (those space-age chairs!), this living room could have ended up feeling like a blast from the past. But, thanks to its playful mix-and-match approach, it all adds up to a cozy look that’s very much of the moment.
The secret to apartment living decor is a commitment to colour. The star of the space is a jewel-tone green sofa. Supporting pieces draw from a palette of mustard yellow and warm, mixed metals, plus a seamless glass coffee table.
Tub chairs are a fickle decorator’s best friend. Use a duo as a love seat alternative. Or break them up, and move each one from spot to spot.
“Glass goes well with both neutrals and colour. It’s always simple, clean and elegant,” explains Matthew, Coffee Table, Wall Unit & Office Buyer.
The club chairs, boho brass mirror, gold-framed side table and copper cage lamp, layer beautifully since they have similar tones.
Apartment living room decor should be all about layers
The play of texture and pattern is also very welcoming. Lush velvet, woven pillows, cool glass, and a nubby rug make guests want to touch everything! The geometric pattern of the rug is picked up in the pillows and the fish-scale lattice of the mirror. As summer turns to fall, this is a room worth retreating to – a warm, stylish cocoon for the cooler months ahead.
