My small but cozy Livingroom

My small but cozy Livingroom

Mirewen15

"Small". That's like when my sister apologizes for the "mess" when there is a sock on the floor upstairs in her bedroom and the door is closed. Very nice space. I love natural light and high ceilings. This looks like it smells like fresh air. The colour combos go great together as well.


W_83

Oh I know that "mess" lol


Saltycow

Guess my perception of small is kinda off from spending too much time at the hometheater sub lol


CanAlwaysBeBetter

But like... What's in the other 3/4ths of the room?


Saltycow

My workstation and dinning table, made another post just for that. [https://old.reddit.com/r/CozyPlaces/comments/pjd7kr/the\_other\_side\_of\_my\_cozy\_livingroom/?ref=share&ref\_source=link](https://old.reddit.com/r/CozyPlaces/comments/pjd7kr/the_other_side_of_my_cozy_livingroom/?ref=share&ref_source=link)


CanAlwaysBeBetter

Dope


Oddgenetix

What speakers are those if you don't mind my asking? I love to see people with good stereo setup instead of a sound bar. Not that sound bars are bad, they've done remarkable things for acoustic imaging in the space of a sound bar. But I love the true space and warmth of that wider stereo sound stage. EDIT: I just noticed the ghost outline of the center channel in the console. Is it a 5.1 setup?


Saltycow

Bowers & Wilkins 5.1.4 603 s2 anniversary fronts HTM6 center 607 s2 anniversary surrounds SVS PB1000 Klipsch 3650 x4 for Atmos height I started out with a flagship soundbar but wanted more so upgraded to these B&Ws. They fit my room perfectly and sound amazing. The clarity and soundstage are unreal.


Oddgenetix

Somehow didn't notice the surrounds or the wall speakers. I've had a long day. but: THAT. IS. DOPE. I'm more of a stereo purist hipster myself, but I have a profound appreciation for a good setup. I don't have much experience with B&W but I hear great things. Next time you hear the deep spatial qualities and nuance of that rig, know that there's an audio nerd out there in the ether remembering your setup and thinking "I bet saltycow's atmos rig sounds dope tonight."


Saltycow

Lol no worries, I like them because how they blend in with my space. I also listen to music in stereo, the surrounds are for movies. B&Ws are known for their clarity, very forward, engaging sound.


Oddgenetix

That's awesome! And ya, the surrounds and wall speakers blended in the space so well I just overlooked them. It's Disneyland level engineering.


Gastronomicus

Your living room is as big as my entire apartment.


Mirewen15

It's a great space. I could totally curl up on the sofa.


Momes2018

I’m going to lol at the small, but it’s very inviting!


Queen_Nature

Exactly... I'm here looking for the "small" lol


mooseyoriginal

"It's not a competition, but I'm winnin' You won't hear me admit it Because I'm so timid and submissive I treat fat people like they were thin Talk simple for the dumbos I'm so humble" Love the lighting either way


feminine_power

Came in to say the same thing! Not small at all! But cozy yes...


coffeeandgatorade

if this is small, then my living room is minuscule!


CanAlwaysBeBetter

Small in the same way Charlie's Kirk's face is small: there's plenty of real estate but it ain't getting used


tapiocatapioca

Poetic.


Nootkasound

Was gonna say that’s twice the size of mine, but nice cozy look.


neutral-mente

My first thought too.


shewy92

If there's room for a king sized bed it isn't small in my book


AbitComplicated

I love what you’ve done. It’s light, airy, and colorful. The blues and oranges tie everything together nicely.


Saltycow

Thank you, those are two fave colors!


Athaelan

Same here! This picture is making me regret some interior design decisions I made haha. But inspiring for how I can make some changes. :)


Saltycow

Go for it! It's never too late to make some changes.


Octavian_202

Where did you get that book shelf/stand with the dice on it ?? I need it!


Saltycow

That's the Herman Miller/Design Within Reach Story bookcase. I absolutely love it too, it fits that small area perfectly.


CharlesV_

That shelf tells me you have no cats… but then there’s a cat picture just to the left. Do you have really well behaved cats or just the picture?


Saltycow

I have a super scaredy cat so he doesn't really mess with the shelf. The towels on the back of accent chair is his usual napping spot. https://imgur.com/a/95B0BfV


Always_Left

Omg he is just the cutest! This picture is way cozier than the original, your little kitty definitely warms up the room.


Saltycow

Thank you lol, yes he is the cutest, here's another just for you https://i.imgur.com/hK2Beiw.jpg


pawn_guy

Cat tax has been paid. Here's your upvote.


Octavian_202

Very nice, thanks!


Beach_rat90

Same!


benderlicious54

This picture smells like Febreze.


Saltycow

I'm more of a Sicilian Lemon kinda guy.


_Aqueox_

>Blocks the door Haha! FUCK YOU, *DOOR!*


Saltycow

Lol, that “door” actually doesn’t open, no hinge or handle, the one that does open is on the opposite side not shown in the pic.


_Aqueox_

Goootcha, I'm on my phone and tired at that so I didn't notice the fine details. As ye were my dude.


89MichaelAdams89

Depends on the wall, this is Patrick


InspectorLD

The colors are so bright! I love it!


tooth_mascarpone

So light and soft! Your place is quite energizing


Saltycow

Thanks, it took a bit of time to get it where I want it but so worth it to come home to after a long day.


Apx2dnt

Coastal cottage done right


wikedsmaht

That’s bigger than my living room! Looks lovely - very tranquil 💕


ashman508

The orange car by the way is a McLaren 570S


Saltycow

Good eye, my dream car :D


LooseFilters

Why not a 720S? Dream? Dream big.


Saltycow

While the 720s is way faster, I do love the styling of the 570s more.


NuklearFerret

Where did you get it in triptych like that?


Saltycow

From Amazon, no longer available tho :(


cutewindowcat

By chance do you still have the link to the unavailable page? I really want to find this somewhere but I'm not sure which keywords to use


quarantinedinVegas

Gorgeous colors. I love it!


Popular_Blacksmith_1

YOO I HAVE THE EXACT SAME BLUE ARMCHAIR


Saltycow

IKEA Strandmon gang assemble!


satirious

Ive never seen the Strandmon in that colour before! It’s such a refreshing shade of blue!


Winter141

I do love being able to visit other people's cozy spaces remotely. There is something so cheerful and airy about this room and it feels fun.


BulkyChemistry10

Where did you get those planters hanging on the wall on the top left corner? Thanks! Super cute space!


Saltycow

From Amazon, called "Modern White Ceramic Hanging Planter Succulent Air Plant Flower Pot Wall Decor." Unfortunately the one I have is no longer available but there are plenty that are similar.


SmallTownJerseyBoy

Gives me beachy vibes almost. love it


MITUmakrame

Small? This is a penthouse for someone :-D but i love the colors and everything. It is stunning. Goood job


gnarlyknurling

I feel like the trash is staged lol


Saltycow

Lmao what do you mean?


gnarlyknurling

Just that the little orange bit matches the room/esthetic lol it’s fun


Saltycow

Lol that's one of those sold stickers from a dealership. I took this picture just after picking up my new motorcycle xD


gnarlyknurling

Does the motorcycle also match the esthetic?


Dark_Eyes

I have that table! Bed Bath and Beyond :)


Tanager_Summer

That's gorgeous!


enx337

Can confirm would go in for a warm coffee or hot chocolate


akrilugo

*cries in UK living room size*


Saltycow

Cheer up mate, at least you guys have better tea and biscuits.


eurasianblue

Bright and cozy is hard to achieve! Well done!


CharlyShouldWork

Love It


haappygooluckyy

I love the lights colors! Beautiful room


seahorse_party

I love how you used the bright coral-y orange! Inspiring. :)


kszark

where is this furniture from? love it!


Saltycow

The couch with ottoman is from Amazon.


alexamarie9

really! I feel so wary of buying furniture off of Amazon, but that looks really nice! How comfy is it?


Saltycow

It’s big and supportive but might be too stiff for some people. It’s a couch you sit or float on, not the kind you sink in. I love it tho.


Defiant-Branch4346

Ah this is so neat


placeholder_u_

WOW! So bright!


ElectronicDingos

Do you have a link or name for the couch?


Saltycow

Yup, just search Modway Engage on Amazon.


talessy

Lovely


Placeholder0550

I love how you've managed to fit in some proper speakers and make them blend in with the rest of the room/decor. Bravo!


Saltycow

These are the new B&W 600 series in oak. Took me a while to find something that matches the space and sounds great.


_bubble-t

Wow looks amazing!


thurmanmermen

What kind of speakers do you use?


Saltycow

I have a 5.1.4 mainly consists of Bowers & Wilkin's 600 Anniversary edition, with a SVS PB1000 sub and 4 Klipsch in wall speakers. Here's front speakers. https://i.imgur.com/8j2R7qq.jpg


thurmanmermen

Damn dude I’ve been wanting to get those towers for a while. Your setup must sound pretty kickass. What kind of receiver do you use?


thurmanmermen

I also couldn’t help but notice your jbl monitors ;) I have the and ones but in black


Jolly_Efficiency4550

This was such Inspo. Thanks for sharing


Guswoman

This is sweet thank you for sharing ☺️


citrustrees

CC (badass Custom Content created by players) Sims 4 vibes. I love it.


tooabsurdforthis

Its so beautiful! The color coordination is spot on Enjoy it!


throwawayathrowaway0

In my living room, it's literally a game of human tetris to get from one side of the other because it's so small. I also have pretty normal-sized ceilings, which adds to the small factor.


Lazuliv

Small? If this is small I wonder what big is to you OP. Sick place!


coffeecakesupernova

I love the colors you use. It makes it feel so full of life and light. Looking at it made me smile.


Lethophobia

The pop of orange here and there is genius.


thebalancewithin

Incredible


miktoo

Wow, that's a nice color scheme, love it!


NoTalkeeBeforeCoffee

I totally zoomed to see what books were there.


Saltycow

Just Leigh Bardugo and Neil Gaiman mostly.


onepissedoffturkey

This is so beautiful! I can imagine many relaxing evenings spent in there.


Saltycow

Lol it's too relaxing, I have fallen asleep on the couch many times on accident.


Glittering-Doctor-47

Very cozy


shutupdigit

This is really beautiful


bete0noire

Your livingroom is larger than my 2 bedrooms combined. Rent in NYC is not fun...


Newbie-Tailor-Guy

Is the portrait collection of a Need For Speed cover?!


DolphinRx

Where did you get the throw on the ottoman? Love it!


PutASausageInYoButt

I love the color scheme.


Clockwork_Kitsune

Your small living room looks to be bigger than my entire apartment.


acass23

Bright, stylish, homey, and inviting! I love it. May I ask where you got your couch/ottoman? Looking for a new couch for my space and would be curious what you have here!


Saltycow

Thanks! It’s the Modway Engage, got it from Amazon. Really well built for the price.


acass23

Thank you !


KoalaBackfist

Looks so tight and well done. Boy… I just never know how the heck to layout artwork on my walls. I have 2 more blank walls left and I get headaches overthinking about sizes… frame types and measuring non-stop. I suck at this kinda thing :(


Saltycow

I would start with finding artworks that you love and putting them up and see how it looks.


dustyTrails2u

I need you to decorate for me. Your space is great!


SarahPallorMortis

Small? That room is about 3 times as big as our living room.


Rampant_baconator

Hmmm. I suppose some people define “small” differently from myself.


imran-shaikh

Why do you use the ottoman for? It has no storage space.


godamongmen22

Just a subjective nitpick, but the McLaren painting seems out of place. I really would not know what to put there, but I wouldn’t put that. Not to knock this spot, it’s nice as hell.


liltxchicken

That rug is stunning


smithtelula

I wish I had your talent for interior design


the_hardest_part

I love it! I wish I had those floors.


ckalmond

That’s the size of my apartment lol


alwayscomplimenting

I love this, it’s so cheery and cozy. The curtain idea is brilliant, it never occurred to me to use hooks rather than a rod. Did you use command hooks?


Love_at_First_Cut

Love the colors.


asuravirochana

"sMaLl" Yeah right LOL


tony_thegreat

the McLaren on the wall makes it


Bastette54

This room looks really bright and cheerful!


Can_make_shitty_gifs

I'm in love with your carpet


Saltycow

Me too, it's the Ikea VALLÖBY.


Can_make_shitty_gifs

Oooh, gotta get one if it's from Ikea ! Thanks for the reference


Constant_Court_4639

In what world is this small O.O


MochaJ95

This living room is huge


LoudGuest4028

The ceiling doesn’t not make it small


Mooncinder

I love the colour scheme and the bright, airy atmosphere.


SqueegeeBeckenheim11

I love your color palette! It’s so warm and homey, and stylish at the same time!


clintCamp

Not small, but you can use that ceiling as a great lay back recliner projector screen


milky_eyes

In what world is this a small living room? Haha


NickTheThick

not small + very pretty tho


matildaduddlesinc

ihavetenpotatoes

Very lovely, beautiful space!

Nextplz06gt

I love the choice of McLaren on the wall!


xCarfaxAbbeyx

Love it. Nice eye.


outsidestatus

Small?


csimonson

Where'd you get the sweet looking McLaren canvas? EDIT: Nevermind, thanks though.


marcie1214

I love the round end table you have.I have the same round end table! Your room looks great!


shewshine

i LOVE your color scheme 🥰


subliminallyNoted

Great to see that colour combo balanced with all the white. Makes eye candy.


MesWantooth

Space looks great…a 3 panel painting of a modern McLaren automobile is a very unusual choice!


iamjdoza

I have that same mandala table! Two of them actually!


williamtbash

Love everything about it. Great job.


ravenoustemptress

How do you get to that door in the corner? Do you not use it or is there more of a pathway than it looks? Super cute room!


Saltycow

That’s a decorative French door, no door hinges or handles. There is a matching door on the other side that actually opens.


yargyargyargyarg

Where did you get the car canvases?


Mizr333

It is clear that you don’t own any cats otherwise your plants would all be dead


Saltycow

I have one actually, he’s just super well behaved.


Mizr333

Lucky you!


runnyeggyolks

Beautiful area! Where is the chair from?


tomuelmerson

Wait, so what does a large living room look like to you?


Lilvn22

I really like what you did to have a beautiful room like this. It is light and bright. The way you use and combine pastel colors makes the room much more lovely


JustPonsie

It looks so pretty. Well done!!


Wibbits

The colors are so welcoming and warm! I love it


pressurepoint13

Airy


senseq00

Cozy without being lavish. +1


doornroosje

Small? Lol. Nice room though!


Stormhammer

Dig the McLaren artwork!


dleifdnalh

Did you make that blanket with loops yarn?


Saltycow

My ex-girlfriend did, super comfy.


ams5657

I love your blue chair!


greenrangerguy

I love the colours.


Switchroo

What are those vines hanging on the wall?


OMMFGitsAustin

I've said it before when you posted but the taycan? Whatever the car is, you did really well tying that into the room, and using such a bold color but keeping it cozy.


Kenji44

I really like your decorating style. I’m redoing a small condo and this is quite helpful.


STylerMLmusic

This isn't small. Stop like baiting.


GorillaAttacks

I’ll need an itemized list of everything in this photo. Thank you!


Saltycow

Lol I'll try my best Couch+Ottoman : Modway Engage on Amazon Mandela round table: Bed Bath Beyond Story Bookcase : DWR/Herman Miller Accent Chair+Ottoman: Ikea Strandmon


Blue_bitterfly333

I absolutely love it!


ForceGauge

Is that a La-Z-Boy sofa + ottoman combo?


lilbootz

Wow I love all the colors!


Emotional_Breath_939

So pretty


twofourfixhate

I love it. Please come decorate my living room. 😍


Magen137

I like the mclaren painting!


justforthehellofit

I love the pops of orange!!


florali13

Where did you get the display cabinet?


Saltycow

Oops, the display cabinet is the Hemnes from IKEA


Shitmybad

This room would house three families in some countries lol.


Trackerbait

everyone else sees the car, I see the Iron Man helmet. lol That's a nice rug.


Saltycow

Oh yeah I'm also a marvel nerd lol, the top shelf has the Infinity Gauntlet, Mjolnir not in frame.
