Living room DESIGN

Tailoring living room design to the specific characteristics of your home is essential, regardless of size or layout. For small apartments or studios, multifunctional furniture can be a game-changer. Think ottomans with storage, or a sofa that can double as a guest bed. Larger homes or open floor plans require scaled-up furnishings and varied seating options to ensure that the living area feels engaging and inviting. Different architectural styles may call for specific design approaches. A contemporary space might benefit from understated and streamlined design, while a classic Victorian room would prosper with rich, heavier textures and ornate details.

At Sean Symington Design, we understand the central role the living room plays in the overall aesthetic and functionality of a residence. Our approach to living room design is rooted in the belief that this space should be a reflection of the occupants’ lifestyle and personality. From the selection of furniture to the arrangement of decor elements, our team at Sean Symington Design is dedicated to curating living rooms that are both inviting and stylish, tailored to the unique preferences and needs of our clients.

If you’re considering a living room redesign or renovation project, Sean Symington Design is poised to bring your vision to fruition. Our experienced designers work closely with clients to understand their aesthetic preferences, functional requirements, and the atmosphere they wish to create in their living space. We specialise in creating harmonious designs that balance comfort with sophistication, integrating elements such as lighting, colour schemes, and furniture layout to maximise both visual appeal and practicality.

Living room design

When it comes to the architecture and interior design of a home, the living room stands as a cornerstone — the area where form and function intersect most vividly. As the primary communal space, your living room’s aesthetics and layout significantly impact the overall ambiance and utility of your living space.

Balance functionality with personal aesthetics to ensure the space serves the household’s daily needs and is a visual embodiment of its members’ collective personality. Incorporate meaningful decor and personal touches to infuse the space with history and emotion. Family heirlooms, travel souvenirs, and curated artwork add layers of interest and warmth. Reflect your lifestyle and preferences in the choice of materials, textures, and forms. Whether you favor a sleek modern aesthetic or a cosy traditional style, make sure your living room design aligns with your way of living.

Your living room stands as the soul of your residential project, inviting and embracing those who cross its threshold. Its design is an intricate dance between aesthetics and function, and mastering this balance is key to creating a home that resonates deeply with you. Engaging with the living room’s potential to accentuate your residential project is not merely a matter of visual appeal; it’s about crafting a space that supports your lifestyle and becomes an integral part of your identity.

What our Clients Say

Finished interior design
"Sean was really engaged in the project from the first call. Really understood what I wanted and was able to interpret it into a fully rounded design plan. The level of detail and support was incredible, more than I could have expected. Great discussions about every aspect and where I wasn’t sure he either sent pictures to show the concept or adapted it. Thoroughly enjoyed the process and the outcome was amazing. I genuinely could not have done it without him. Pictures coming soon as just in the final stages. Highly recommend Sean for any size of project - I’ve never regretted the decision."
