Cozy Modern Living Room Lounge From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, this once dated living room got a chic update with a fresh coat of white paint, neutral wood flooring and a plush, white mid-century sectional sofa. Designer Sarah Richardson chose a modern wood coffee table and large decorative palm leaves to add warmth and interest to this otherwise neutral space.
Incorporating bold abstract art and large-scale geometric patterns helped achieve a unique and retro look in this living room. Yellow throw pillows add bright color, while a thick-striped rug adds bold pattern. Unique tables complete the funky, fresh decor.
Living Room With Striped Rug and Colorful Throw Pillows
Keep in mind that your furnishings should be in proportion not only to the actual size of the space but also to the perceived size — which can be affected by such elements as paint color or extensive areas of glass. In this project, the latter came into play. “The floor-to-ceiling windows make this small space feel larger, and to keep that open feeling the furniture needed to be scaled appropriately,” says architect Leslie Arnold. “Choosing furniture that was open at the bottom — i.e. pieces that do not go all the way to the floor — ’enlarges’ the room by allowing the entire floor to be visually unbroken. The simple, solid colored upholstered furniture allows the brightly colored rug and wall art to be the main focus of the room.”
