The design of the walls in the living room (12 photos), the interior and finishes of the walls in the living room


Living room is not only the place where you fall on the couch and turn on the TV. Here from time to time there are strangers: a neighbor, a school friend of your child, the mother, finally. They all (unconsciously) draw conclusions about you on your interior. So give them cause for reflection — make wall unusual. Here are three dozen ideas for decorating wall in living room.

1. Textile panels
Panels of fabric — warm and tactile alternative to the usual paintings and posters. The walls in the living room photo designer Irina Krasheninnikova decorated four piece of fabric Finnish brand Marimekko. At the entrance you can see the legendary floral print “Poppies” and a wide black-and-white Vatruska — both from designer Aino-Mayi Metsola.

3. Panels, garden and outputs, such as Windows
Often decisions of how to decorate walls in the living room dictates the overall concept of the interior. So, in a duplex apartment in the photo the designers Kristaleva Lyudmila and Oksana Panfilova task was to create the feeling of a country house.

4. Thoughts of different depths
Three-dimensional letters and words is not only emotionally charged wall decor in the living room, but also a way to blur the boundaries of a small room, shoot down the focus of the beholder. The project in the Dolgoprudny design Bureau DAO decor an interesting mix of different techniques and materials: stencil and decorative plaster, plastic and MDF. And the inscription in the center of the HOME — and at a lamp, made to order.

Message to the world on the wall you can even leave with an unusual bookshelves — as in the example in the photo. Initially designer Anna demushkina from the office of the DAO decor offered the customer two options shelves — home and sex. The young man decided that the scale fits better with the second. This choice is dictated by the bright color of the walls and the whole style of the project.

5. Plaster under concrete and invisible doors
Modern living rooms are often decorated in an industrial theme. Photo — decorative wall under the concrete with a specially created effect of drips. This finish does not require additional ornaments.

7. The mirror behind bars
Living in the village of Trouville for a photo with the project Vladislava Grabchikov of Desatori. Here we see the mirror panels is another technique as it can be interesting to decorate the wall. Typically, these panels are used to create the impression of perspective and relieve the pressure of a blank wall. However, “naked” mirror looks boring and cold. To make it more interesting you can use a graphic grid of MDF.


Mirror panels echo the decorative partitions between the living room and dining room.

11. Wallpaper for fabric
Wallpaper with a distinctive textile pattern — the easiest way to visually insulate the walls of the living room. The loft in the photo under the project of Dmitry Litvinov used the cover in tartan, to “domesticate” the texture of brick and concrete.

12. Wallpaper-mural

13. Roll color
Abstract painting — save for a decorator because on canvas art you can collect all colours of the interior or, conversely, to take colors from the picture as the basis for the selection of textiles. Such “coincidences” always seem to be very harmonious. Example — lounge on the project Irina Bubnova. The author of the paintings — Michael Novekmeny.

14. Black walls and a frieze with bas-reliefs
The host of this Moscow apartment is a great lover of painting and photography. For him the decoration of the walls in the living room began with the redevelopment: to place all the paintings and photographs, required open space. Living in this project occupies half the space of the apartment. Black wall color was the best for the organization of the gallery: it unites all works of art and not distracting.

Another interesting solution for the walls in the hall associated with friezes and decorated beams. They were decorated with plaster reliefs with the same ornament as on the racetrack, which is visible from the Windows of the apartment. The form of the reliefs ordered from specialized companies.
