Integrating your TV is so important because your living room needs to pull double-duty. It can’t just be a space for entertainment, it also needs to be a space for entertaining. When choosing electronics, furniture, decor and lighting for your dream living room, picture the space full of people. Will it comfortably accommodate the groups you plan to host? Sectional furniture that can be moved around can help you carve out a better entertaining area. Hideaway TVs can make the space feel more intimate and dimmable lights can create ambiance. In short, when planning your dream living room, think through how it will function whether you’re curled up on the couch solo or you’re entertaining a large group.
Under a wooden ceiling, a sunken living room rich in colorful details warms up the concrete connection to the outdoors.

An L-shaped sofa in the living room next to a robust wooden coffee table entices guests and family to enjoy each other’s company. A socially compact living room with the necessities at hand is preferred to a spacious but cold space. The Brindabella Residence offers a version of this idea, a very warm and sleek design, a hybrid between minimalism, traditionalism and functionality.
