4 Living Room Looks We Love for 2018! | Gold Coast Interior Design

Living rooms would have to be one of our favourite spaces to fit-out! Being the central area of your home, the styling of your living room will really set the tone for the rest of your household. So it’s important to create an inviting, comfortable space that works harmoniously with your existing interior design.

Most homeowners will gravitate naturally towards a certain design style, whether that’s Scandinavian, coastal, urban or bohemian (if you’re not sure, check out our style profiles to find the perfect fit!). So we thought we’d share some modern living room ideas we are loving for 2018, to give you some inspiration for your very own home!

Keep reading for 4 living room looks we love, as well as our suggestions to help you achieve this look at home using our range of living room furniture and decor.

Scandinavian Living Room Inspiration

If your home features minimal design and a neutral colour palette, a Scandinavian-inspired living room will complement your styling perfectly!

When it comes to creating a Scandinavian living room, it’s all about simplicity and refined details. Instead of cluttering your space with smaller items, focus on one or two statement pieces like a contemporary sofa or modern coffee table that will make the biggest impact.

We love bringing a Scandinavian living room to life by using lounges in pale grey tones, paired with timber accents and neutral textiles. Abstract artworks in shades of black and white are also the perfect decor piece to tie this look together.

Our top furniture picks for a Scandinavian living room include:

Coastal Living Room Inspiration

For relaxed, light-filled homes inspired by the ocean, a coastal-inspired living room is the perfect fit.

This living room style is all about a neutral base with subtle coastal accents and organic textures. Comfortable linen lounges paired with jute rugs, whitewashed or timber coffee tables, natural textiles and statement accessories like rattan baskets, bamboo armchairs or chunky coral all work well within a coastal-inspired space.

Be sure to bring in some beautiful coastal shades such as pale blue, sea green, cream and sand through your cushions, vases and artwork.

Bohemian Living Room Inspiration

For lovers of quirky design and eclectic styling, you’ll probably find yourself naturally drawn to a bohemian-inspired living room.

This look is all about mixing and matching colours, textures and design elements in a tasteful and refined way. Furniture and decor in earthy tones such as charcoal, sage, amber and navy work beautifully together for bohemian design, with a big focus on textiles - leather cushions and patterned rugs will always be a winner.

Metallic accents can also add a touch of luxe into the space, while potted plants and greenery will help to tie this look together. When it comes to artwork, consider a botanical print or macrame wall hanging to complete the space.

Our top furniture picks for a bohemian living room include:

Urban Living Room Inspiration

Chic and sophisticated styling is what you’ll find in an urban-inspired living room, best suited for lovers of modern and contemporary design. Urban design is perfect for those who want to achieve a softer, more relaxed version of an industrial-style space.

To get this look, we love layering grey accents with darker tones to provide contrast. Light timber pieces and velvet items work well in an urban-inspired space, so consider a statement console or some ottomans to balance out the look - think "New York Loft" style.

Modern accessories like lamps, mirrors and vases made from steel or glass can be used to dress the space, along with contemporary artworks. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour - deep blues, oranges or even pastels can work well when used sparingly in an urban living room.
