Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Beautiful Homes

Do you use your living room? That’s a question I like to ask because so many times we spend a great amount of money in it and rarely are we there to enjoy it. Is that the point? Is it a room only for special occasions or is it a room that you are able to sit in, be comfortable and take all the beauty in? I think a living room is almost like the “post card” of your house. It should be beautiful, it should have interesting pieces, it should be very organized and have some glamour to it, but more importantly, it has to be yours! It has to have your personality. That’s what makes me really enjoy a living room, to feel that the place belongs to the person I’m visiting and not feel that it was just a copy from a magazine cover.

Sitting & Chatting

Pillows can add so much to a living room, but don’t overdo it. Leave some space for the people to sit!

I love the colors used here.

Cozy

This is not huge in space, but it’s huge in charm. Beautifully done.

Chic

How can’t you fall in love with this space?

Sophisticated

Take a closer look at the beautiful details in the celling.

Modernized

A perfect combination of clean lines and comfort.

Safari

I love how warm this room feels.

Spacious

That rug works perfectly in this room. Love the comfy couches and the sleek chairs. The chandelier adds some shine to this living room.

Serenity

It feels open and bigger than it is because of the patio. Fun table lamps and extraordinary furnishings.

Pretty Lady

Dramatic and calming at the same time.

Fireplace

See closely the gorgeous details of this fireplace.

Remember that it doesn’t really matter what kind of living room you’re looking at when you go home, what matters the most is if you feel happy when you’re there. If you don’t feel too happy there yet, I hope you can feel inspired by the ones I’ve posted today, but this is just an “inspiration”. You have to do it your way, with the things you love and with what feels right for you.

I always say that you have to feel welcome in your own home and you just feel that way when you add your personal touch to it.

Please come back tomorrow to see yet another Celebrity house!

    Those furry pillows are not my style but I liked the clean lines and bright rooms.

    My friend Liz comes to your blog every day because she says she gets lots of decorating ideas. This post is a fine example of that. Some wonderful spaces. I like Serenity and Spacious. 🙂

  3. Karen,

    Thank you so much for sending your friend to HomeBunch! That’s great! Please, say “hello” to Liz for me! 😉

    Can you tell us more about the first picture? It is, for me, absolute perfection. Who’s home, where is it, are there more photos available? Great blog.

  5. Hello, Dear Debra.

    I also LOVE the first picture! I love everything about it. Even the furry pillows which wouldn’t be my first choice, but it looks so perfect and cozy by the fire. I wish I knew more about it too, I found it at: http://www.raymain.co.uk/ . Ray Main is a great photographer from the UK.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you for your comment! 🙂

    Hi Luciane, I wanted to email you but couldn’t find your email… thank you for always leaving such lovely comments on my blog. You are so sweet! I am checking into which Dexter episode it is – I have not seen it yet myself. They also had B.H.90210 film a couple of episodes but for those they cleared most of my furnishings out and replaced them with their own set, but for Dexter they left a lot of the furnishings which made it more fun for me! It was very exciting to watch the filming. RE: your post, we have a very small house and yes, we use every square inch of it. I am really opposed to having any room in your house un-used.. it doesn’t make sense to me to have a ‘show’ room. I try to get people to use their dining room, living room, etc. for what makes sense to them at the phase they are in. Make your dining room a craft room if that is what you need and you don’t ‘dine’ for example. xo Sherri (sorry for the long comment).

  8. Sherri!

    I love your comment! 🙂 I totally agree… you should use every room in your house. That makes sense to me too.

    That so exciting that you could watch the filming of Dexter! And yes, I shouldn’t but I watch BH90210!!! LOL

    Thank you so much for everything, Sherri. You’re a great person and I adore your blog!

    What a collection of fab living rooms…each room has its own charm:)

    Yes, our family loves it in our living room, we often lounge there and entertain guests:)

  10. Greet said,

    Hi Luciane,
    I hope you had wonderful Holidays! And I wish you a wonderful 2011 with a lot of gorgeous blogposts!
    This one today is yet beautiful! The living rooms are all so charming! As you said , the most important is that you feel good coming home!

    PS Thank you so much for your sweetest comments on my posts!

  11. Cole@LavishProperty said,

    Very nice! Nothing extravagant or overpowering in any of the rooms, and I like that.

  12. Rachel said,

    I love all of these, but wonder if any of these homes have kids living in them! Ha! Or maybe the kids can’t go into these rooms. All the colors are so light and bright, which makes me think they would get trashed pretty quickly. I got a white area rug for our family room and it had a spot on it within a day! I guess I should consider those “love spots” from the kids.

  13. Hello Rachel!

    Hahaha… I’m right there with you! I also have kids and I know how it is! My solution? Leather couches! Much easier to keep it clean! 🙂

    Hi dear Luciane, it always makes me happy to see your comments! This post is full of elegant and glamorous interiors, just as I like it! I could move into every image!!! I agree with you though, a living room should be beautiful, but also used! Have a great day!!!

    Kristin xoxo

    Your right, Luciane. Back in the day living rooms were just for show, not living. A prime example is my parents’ living room…very well appointed, but can’t remember when anyone ever enjoyed it. Even for Holiday gatherings everyone was always in the Kitchen/Dining rooms. However, I use and love my living.

  19. Nice to see you here, Sharon!

    Luciane, I just discovered you. What a great blog with such beautiful photography and narrative. Congratulations on making your dreams a reality.

  21. Hello, Jaclyn!

    Thank you very much!

    I do try to make my dreams a reality. You need to work hard and believe, even when nobody else does. 😉

    My house is so small, so we use our living room all the time! These are all such beautiful, inspiring examples. I especially love the first one…so cozy and warm! Those pillows are funky too!

  23. TC, Bella Boho said,

    The first room is to die for, rustic and glam, so freaking cozy! I love, love, love it! I’ll have to send you a pic of a living room/parlour that I am working on, well, when it’s done 😉 It’ll be on my blog as well.

  24. mydesignchic said,

    Fabulous living room picks. The first image is perfection…love the serene feel combined with the rough texture of the beams and the wonderfully whimsical pillows!!

  25. Tereza said,

    Oi, Luciane!
    Que salas lindas, minha favorita é a Pretty Lady, achei o ambiente super relaxante, o azul e o branco ficam fantásticos junto.
    Beijos.

    ai, Lu! Perdão! eu não tinha te dado os créditos, né? desculpe, mas já tá lá beijos

  27. Nichole@40daysof said,

    I am dying to use my living room. But I don’t have a couch for it yet. I do have two chairs, but I also need an ottoman, coffee table, and on and on. That desk/console that I posted Friday is going in that room. So, slowly but surely I will get there. Maybe by the end of 2011…

    Great post!

  28. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    Spacious… love all of them!

  29. O'Style said,

    Happy New Year!!

    I wanted to come back and look at this post. I really like the style of photos you use.

    Do we ever get to see some of *your* home????
