But there are some tricks to making a long and narrow room into a comfortable living space. Past the front foyer, the home opens up into this living and dining space.
The color palette of greys which is accented with yellows and blues look really eye-catching and interesting. If you notice the rectangular TV console, area rug and the furniture are slimmer than usual. Even when the color palette is a bit darker than usual, we sure think that it is pretty as it already is – contemporary living room at its best. If a chaise is out of your budget, you can re-create the same idea with backless seats or benches.
We love the color palette used in this living room and if you notice, like in some of the photos above, rectangular or slim item are ever present in the spaces. The main living space features a cathedral ceiling with paneling and chamfered beams, and a stone fireplace and chimney. Living room with paneling on all walls, coffered ceiling, Oly pendant, built-in book cases, bay window, calacatta slab fireplace surround and hearth, 2-way fireplace with wall sconces shared between the family and living room.
JDG undertook a complete transformation of this family residence, taking it from bleak to chic.
The space marries custom furnishings, fabulous art and vintage pieces, showcasing them against graphic pops of pattern and color. Aside from this space being long, it’s kind of wide too, so you’ll notice that there is a rather spacious area for circulation.
The seating is also longer than usual and adding stand out decors help to add designs on corners. Long, narrow spaces may seem like a decorating nightmare, but they’re really an entertaining dream as they’re ideal for setting up several seating areas.
This one manages to set up two different seating areas with minimal furnishings, thus maintaining the room’s open flow.
If you need free-standing storage pieces, placing them at the end of the room keeps it from looking narrower.
The living room is very long and narrow, so finding the right sofa was of utmost importance. The designer decided to create 2 distinct entertaining areas using the Molteni & C Freestlyle Sectional.
Since the backs are separate pieces from the seats, the whole sofa can be reconfigured in any number of ways to fit the situation.
