Japanese style living rooms possess these simplicity, comfort, serene and modern, sometimes ultra-minimalist elements, and the word Zen sums it all up. Clean and uncluttered living, holding tightly to balance, order, ancient customs and a love for natural beauty – this is what a Japanese living room is about. So, how to add a Japanese feel to your living room? Japanese homes are usually decorated in natural colors, which are derived from the browns of wooden elements, and the greens of plants. Grey and neutrals are widely used everywhere in the rooms, so the result is a calming, soothing modern space. Don’t forget of houseplants to bring more nature inside. Adding traditional Japanese plants, such as bonsai and bamboo, into your home will give it a small Japanese cultural touch. Fill the home with natural light – make large windows and ceiling openings with skylights. Try keeping your windows clear of any obstruction, but if this is not possible, then opt for a simple bamboo shade or sheer, gauzy curtain panels.
Grey is one of the most popular basic colors that is easy to mix and match and is great for every space. But a grey living room can look too boring and impersonal and adding different hues of greens to it, makes a whole lot of difference. Various shades of green make the space cooler, bolder, fresher and much more eye-catching. Green reminds of natural world around us, and it’s perfect if you want to create a fall or a spring mood. Grey and green are a very natural combo, they are suitable for almost any décor style, from moody dark or art deco to light Scandinavian or mid-century modern. Vary the shades and complement neutral tones with vivacious green pops. Neutrals or moodies? Choose the shades of grey to your liking: from very light and subtle to dark charcoals and almost black to create an ambience that you like. It will be a perfect base for further decorating, and then choose shades of green that you like: emerald, mint, sage, lime or else, it depends on your taste and mood you want to create.

By the way, the most popular styles are vintage, modern, Scandinavian, rustic and just glam. As for colors, pastels, purple, red and metallic shades create a cool feminine look.

I’d like to include lamps on the list because they often create an ambience. Let’s take a closer look at the units. A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I’d like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
A sunken conversation pit used to be a trend in the middle of the 20th century and the trend is coming back getting more interesting shapes. Now you can see not only sunken lounges, both outdoor and indoor ones, but also whole living rooms! Sounds cool, right? Let’s discuss indoor sunken living rooms and conversation pits. Both sunken living rooms and conversation pits have the same advantages: the space feels larger and airier because you slightly separate the zones without a serious division just using the difference in the floor heights. Plus, the ceiling seems to be higher and it adds a spacious feel again. Now let’s take a look at some examples. A sunken living room is a cool idea for any decor style, it allows to visually separate the room and achieve it just with a different floor height, so your space won’t feel smaller or darker. This is a gorgeous idea for any open layout that are a hot trend now. Make an open layout with a kitchen, dining space and a sunken living room and you’ll see how comfortable and cool it is. If your sunken living room has beautiful views, it’s even cooler, it will make the space feel more relaxing. Highlight the sunken living room with a border of wood or stone for a more catchy look.
