17 August 2021

Our home is the expression of our lifestyle and luxury living rooms are the icing on the cake to make all those who visit us fall in love. The decoration of these spaces is a challenge to create an atmosphere that conveys peace, harmony, relaxation and exquisiteness.

The design of the living room is one of the most important decisions in luxury homes, as it is the most versatile and multifunctional room. Decorating it to our taste is one of the small pleasures that interior design offers us and everything depends, to a large extent, on the materials and the taste for details.

Top quality materials and soft textures are the best allies to create luxury living rooms. Wood is the right choice if we want a living room that breathes warmth, microcement brings elegance, helps to expand and illuminate the space and combines perfectly with any decorative style. Stone adds a rustic touch and leather adds texture.

All these materials have a place in our luxury living room, as they contribute to create exquisite finishes and also make the interior design much richer. From Luxury Concrete we present you several proposals for decorating luxury living rooms that will help you find your own style.

Modern luxury living-rooms

The living room is the room where we usually combine leisure with work when we are at home. It is the space where we watch television, read, use the computer or spend time with the family. To create modern luxury living rooms it is important to opt for colours that help to gain luminosity.

Ecru and light tones, such as white, are an excellent choice to enhance the light in luxury living rooms. This chromatic range is ideal because it also translates into elegant atmospheres and focuses all the attention on the decoration of the space. White is perfect for combining with the colours of the furniture and does not overload the decoration.

But exclusivity and luxury are not always related to size. Furniture and design can help us to create luxury living rooms without the need for a large room.

The living room pictured above is a good example of how attention to detail can help create a sense of luxury and warmth. Designer furnishings help to create a room that shows how exquisiteness can be conveyed in small spaces.

In such a room it is advisable to have elements that are easy to find. A designer lamp or an authentic painting are ideal objects to achieve a luxurious aesthetic without overloading the décor.

Classic luxury living rooms

The classic style in luxury living rooms is one of the decorative models that lasts over time and never goes out of fashion. Sobriety and elegance mean that this style is still present in interior design.

This type of living room is a good letter of introduction to our home. If you want to achieve a living room with personality, character and a refined style, the classic style is made for you. It is perfect for decorating large spaces, as in small spaces we risk overloading the atmosphere.

The combination of this style with a modern setting results in a pleasant atmosphere that conveys serenity and tranquillity. Warm and soft tones make the difference in this type of decoration.

The classic living room in the image has a renewed air where the furniture and decoration coexist with modern designs to create a fresh room. The integration of the sofa and coffee table with the privileged views of the garden creates a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.

In this luxury living room we can appreciate how the white and cream tones create a sense of comfort, as no strong colour breaks the harmony of the room.

Consejos para decorar salones de lujo con un estilo clásico

To decorate a luxury living room in a classic style, the first thing to do is to make the most of the space. The need for spaciousness is important to avoid the room lacking light and being excessively cluttered.

  • Combine warm colours: to enhance the light, a good resource is to combine warm colours. In this way we can give the living room a romantic atmosphere and make the most of the natural light that enters the room. In the absence of light, another solution is to use large lamps on the ceiling.
  • It's time for the fireplace: a large part of the differential touch of a classic living room lies in the fireplace. A piece of furniture with an integrated fireplace is a good option to create an authentic classic style.
  • Wooden pieces and mouldings: wooden pieces and mouldings give a stately air to the living room. Wood is a natural ally to give the living room a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Nordic style in luxurious living rooms

The popularity of the Nordic style has skyrocketed and in recent years it has become increasingly popular due to the harmony and simplicity it conveys. It is a universal style that is ideal for relaxing and unwinding in a luxurious atmosphere. To achieve this, it is necessary to choose the right materials and colours.

The colour range is led by white, grey or beige tones. In general, muted colours are an excellent choice, especially if combined with softer contrasts.

In luxury Nordic-style living rooms, the maxim 'less is more' should prevail. Opt for a pleasant atmosphere, with white tables and little furniture. It is important to find points of light to create a pleasant atmosphere, which is especially useful on harsh winter days. Calm tones add an attractive touch and emphasise the spaciousness of the room.

But how can we round off the Nordic style for our luxury living room? The roadmap involves wooden furniture, plants and a sofa with a straight silhouette. Handcrafted ceramic pieces help this room convey serenity.

Vintage luxury living rooms

There are styles that never go out of fashion and are a safe bet for a luxury living room that exudes exclusivity. Vintage style never fails, but you need to have a clear idea of what you want to decorate before you start working on it.

With the vintage touch, the living room decoration has a more antique look but with the highest quality. It is the style associated with elegance, exclusivity and a unique ambience. The vintage style is the opposite of Scandinavian decoration. The muted tones give way to bright and strong colours that conquer the spaces.

This type of decoration for luxury living rooms also involves simple, but very elegant furniture design. Combining vintage-style furniture, which takes us back to bygone eras, with a modern ambience based on a contemporary décor, results in visually appealing compositions.

The charm of vintage decoration will flood the living room with luxury, as with this style you are looking for plenty of natural light to enjoy the finishes, the compositions and the furniture.

Microcement for creating unique luxury living rooms
