While we can’t argue that kitchen and dining are the most popular rooms of the house, there is something about the living room that makes it equally special. In fact, Filipinos spend majority of their time in this particular area watching TV, eating, and napping, apart from entertaining visitors. And, this is the main reason why we need to make sure this area is as comfortable as possible for everyone and, generally, choosing a modern living room design is the way to go. Wondering how you can achieve that chic and contemporary look? Read this guide below to find out!

Where can I find modern living room inspirations?

The internet is brimming with beautiful photos for modern living inspirations. Apps and sites such as Pinterest and Instagram are great avenues for finding images related to home and design, while magazines such as Elle Decor, Dwell, or Vogue (in the Philippines, we have Real Living and Town & Country) are also great sources of style advice for your abode. Aside from the usual, there is also homify Philippines, which features thousands of professionals ranging from architects to interior designers to product designers from all over the world. Their photos and works can be found on the website, which users can pin their images to an ideabook. Ideabooks serve as a moodboard for users and it is a great way to stay inspired throughout your home decorating process. You can also go to Homify’s free consultation page to further consult with professionals.

How can I create a living room that is modern?

Choosing modern design is always great for homes with small spaces and for homeowners whoare on a budget. Following contemporary principles, a modern space should focus on only theessentials, on what is important. For the living room, it is, of course, important to have sofas anda coffee table. Adding plants is also a good idea because of its many benefits (it cools thetemperature and reduces dust and carbon dioxide levels). For most Filipino homes, the sala also doubles as a media room, so a flatscreen TV and entertainment are good additions for this space.

Where can I find modern furniture in the Philippines?

The Philippines is home to many furniture brands and designers. Award-winning Filipino industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue is famous for his innovative designs and you can purchase his works at his Cebu shop or his Makati showroom. Another noted Cebu designer is Debbie Palao, who is famous for blending rustic with contemporary elements beautifully. If you are looking for something more Scandinavian-inspired, you can visit Heima, a home and lifestyle shop, with branches in Makati and Pasig (they also have an online shop for more convenience!). There are also numerous options for people on a budget. SM Department Store is usually the go-to place for people looking to buy furniture in the Philippines. But, aside from that, people can also visit stores such Dimensione and Urban Concepts.

Which colours are common in modern living rooms?

The word modern in home and design is often associated with something subdued or something minimal. That is why we often associate the colors black, white, and beige with the contemporary home look. But we should limit ourselves to only these colors. In fact, we can also achieve that chic, modern living room aesthetic with other colors. If you want to be on trend, Pantone releases a “color of the year,” which are colors you can adapt for your home. In 2016, it was rose Quartz and Serenity, while it was all about Greenery for 2017. If you can’t paint the entire room, we recommend a feature wall or simply adding some touches via accenting such as throw cushions.

How can I incorporate antique furniture to my modern living room?

In the Philippines, most homes would have antique furniture passed down from generations. If you have one at home and don’t want to sell them just yet, there are ways to incorporate these old possessions with your modern ones. For example, you can combine a wooden cabinet with modern accents such as a lamp or a chair. An antique sofa can be refurbished with modern upholstery or you can simply add colorful throw pillows if you want to keep the original. If you have an old dining table, which is also very common in the country, you can dress it up with a patterned tablecloth or you can mix and match it with contemporary chairs from IKEA.
