My small but cozy Livingroom
By - Saltycow
"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.
Oh I know that "mess" lol
Guess my perception of small is kinda off from spending too much time at the hometheater sub lol
But like... What's in the other 3/4ths of the room?
My workstation and dinning table, made another post just for that.
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?
Bowers & Wilkins 5.1.4
603 s2 anniversary fronts
607 s2 anniversary surrounds
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.
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."
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.
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.
Your living room is as big as my entire apartment.
It's a great space. I could totally curl up on the sofa.
I’m going to lol at the small, but it’s very inviting!
Exactly... I'm here looking for the "small" lol
"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
Came in to say the same thing! Not small at all! But cozy yes...
if this is small, then my living room is minuscule!
Small in the same way Charlie's Kirk's face is small: there's plenty of real estate but it ain't getting used
Was gonna say that’s twice the size of mine, but nice cozy look.
My first thought too.
If there's room for a king sized bed it isn't small in my book
I love what you’ve done. It’s light, airy, and colorful. The blues and oranges tie everything together nicely.
Thank you, those are two fave colors!
Same here! This picture is making me regret some interior design decisions I made haha. But inspiring for how I can make some changes. :)
Go for it! It's never too late to make some changes.
Where did you get that book shelf/stand with the dice on it ?? I need it!
That's the Herman Miller/Design Within Reach Story bookcase. I absolutely love it too, it fits that small area perfectly.
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?
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
Omg he is just the cutest! This picture is way cozier than the original, your little kitty definitely warms up the room.
Thank you lol, yes he is the cutest, here's another just for you https://i.imgur.com/hK2Beiw.jpg
Cat tax has been paid. Here's your upvote.
Very nice, thanks!
This picture smells like Febreze.
I'm more of a Sicilian Lemon kinda guy.
>Blocks the door
Haha! FUCK YOU, *DOOR!*
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.
Goootcha, I'm on my phone and tired at that so I didn't notice the fine details.
As ye were my dude.
Depends on the wall, this is Patrick
The colors are so bright! I love it!
So light and soft! Your place is quite energizing
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.
Coastal cottage done right
That’s bigger than my living room! Looks lovely - very tranquil 💕
The orange car by the way is a McLaren 570S
Good eye, my dream car :D
Why not a 720S? Dream? Dream big.
While the 720s is way faster, I do love the styling of the 570s more.
Where did you get it in triptych like that?
From Amazon, no longer available tho :(
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
Gorgeous colors. I love it!
YOO I HAVE THE EXACT SAME BLUE ARMCHAIR
IKEA Strandmon gang assemble!
Ive never seen the Strandmon in that colour before! It’s such a refreshing shade of blue!
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.
Where did you get those planters hanging on the wall on the top left corner? Thanks! Super cute space!
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.
Gives me beachy vibes almost. love it
Small? This is a penthouse for someone :-D but i love the colors and everything. It is stunning. Goood job
I feel like the trash is staged lol
Lmao what do you mean?
Just that the little orange bit matches the room/esthetic lol it’s fun
Lol that's one of those sold stickers from a dealership. I took this picture just after picking up my new motorcycle xD
Does the motorcycle also match the esthetic?
I have that table! Bed Bath and Beyond :)
Can confirm would go in for a warm coffee or hot chocolate
*cries in UK living room size*
Cheer up mate, at least you guys have better tea and biscuits.
Bright and cozy is hard to achieve! Well done!
I love the lights colors! Beautiful room
I love how you used the bright coral-y orange! Inspiring. :)
where is this furniture from? love it!
The couch with ottoman is from Amazon.
really! I feel so wary of buying furniture off of Amazon, but that looks really nice! How comfy is it?
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.
Ah this is so neat
WOW! So bright!
Do you have a link or name for the couch?
Yup, just search Modway Engage on Amazon.
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!
These are the new B&W 600 series in oak. Took me a while to find something that matches the space and sounds great.
Wow looks amazing!
What kind of speakers do you use?
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.
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?
I also couldn’t help but notice your jbl monitors ;) I have the and ones but in black
This was such Inspo. Thanks for sharing
This is sweet thank you for sharing ☺️
CC (badass Custom
Content created by players) Sims 4 vibes. I love it.
Its so beautiful! The color coordination is spot on
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.
Small? If this is small I wonder what big is to you OP. Sick place!
I love the colors you use. It makes it feel so full of life and light. Looking at it made me smile.
The pop of orange here and there is genius.
Wow, that's a nice color scheme, love it!
I totally zoomed to see what books were there.
Just Leigh Bardugo and Neil Gaiman mostly.
This is so beautiful! I can imagine many relaxing evenings spent in there.
Lol it's too relaxing, I have fallen asleep on the couch many times on accident.
This is really beautiful
Your livingroom is larger than my 2 bedrooms combined. Rent in NYC is not fun...
Is the portrait collection of a Need For Speed cover?!
Where did you get the throw on the ottoman? Love it!
I love the color scheme.
Your small living room looks to be bigger than my entire apartment.
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!
Thanks! It’s the Modway Engage, got it from Amazon. Really well built for the price.
Thank you !
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 :(
I would start with finding artworks that you love and putting them up and see how it looks.
I need you to decorate for me. Your space is great!
Small? That room is about 3 times as big as our living room.
Hmmm. I suppose some people define “small” differently from myself.
Why do you use the ottoman for?
It has no storage space.
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.
That rug is stunning
I wish I had your talent for interior design
I love it! I wish I had those floors.
That’s the size of my apartment lol
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 the colors.
"sMaLl" Yeah right LOL
the McLaren on the wall makes it
This room looks really bright and cheerful!
I'm in love with your carpet
Me too, it's the Ikea VALLÖBY.
Oooh, gotta get one if it's from Ikea ! Thanks for the reference
In what world is this small O.O
This living room is huge
The ceiling doesn’t not make it small
I love the colour scheme and the bright, airy atmosphere.
I love your color palette! It’s so warm and homey, and stylish at the same time!
Not small, but you can use that ceiling as a great lay back recliner projector screen
In what world is this a small living room? Haha
not small + very pretty tho
Small my azz
Very lovely, beautiful space!
TIL My living room is miniscule. Yours is lovely though.
I love the choice of McLaren on the wall!
Love it. Nice eye.
Where'd you get the sweet looking McLaren canvas?
EDIT: Nevermind, thanks though.
I love the round end table you have.I have the same round end table! Your room looks great!
i LOVE your color scheme 🥰
Great to see that colour combo balanced with all the white. Makes eye candy.
Space looks great…a 3 panel painting of a modern McLaren automobile is a very unusual choice!
I have that same mandala table! Two of them actually!
Love everything about it. Great job.
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!
That’s a decorative French door, no door hinges or handles. There is a matching door on the other side that actually opens.
Where did you get the car canvases?
It is clear that you don’t own any cats otherwise your plants would all be dead
I have one actually, he’s just super well behaved.
Beautiful area! Where is the chair from?
Wait, so what does a large living room look like to you?
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
It looks so pretty. Well done!!
The colors are so welcoming and warm! I love it
Cozy without being lavish. +1
Small? Lol. Nice room though!
Dig the McLaren artwork!
Did you make that blanket with loops yarn?
My ex-girlfriend did, super comfy.
I love your blue chair!
I love the colours.
What are those vines hanging on the wall?
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.
I really like your decorating style. I’m redoing a small condo and this is quite helpful.
This isn't small. Stop like baiting.
I’ll need an itemized list of everything in this photo. Thank you!
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
I absolutely love it!
Is that a La-Z-Boy sofa + ottoman combo?
Wow I love all the colors!
I love it. Please come decorate my living room. 😍
I like the mclaren painting!
I love the pops of orange!!
Where did you get the display cabinet?
Oops, the display cabinet is the Hemnes from IKEA
This room would house three families in some countries lol.
everyone else sees the car, I see the Iron Man helmet. lol
That's a nice rug.
Oh yeah I'm also a marvel nerd lol, the top shelf has the Infinity Gauntlet, Mjolnir not in frame.
