The decor is an important moment in the design of the living room, because it can complement the missing moments in the room. In the modern style, the decorative motif was completely based on the vegetative lines, themes, creating the same solitude with nature, which was quite popular from the very beginning of the revival of modernism in the interior. Flowers had to be big, lush, which could become a kind of accent in this room. They support the whole system.

Ornaments in the room are often present and always on the plant theme. Ornaments may not necessarily be taken from Russian modern. The Belgian-French designs are perfectly combined with the Russian modern, especially on the doors and glass. Ornaments are also combined with antique furniture.

A peculiar element of decor - a large, large flower, which was a kind of accent in the living room, supported all the vegetative themes that are present in fabrics, furniture, and paintings.

The big problem in the historical style is to make upholstered furniture. It was not accepted to put a sofa in the middle of the room. In the center could stand chairs, armchairs. In the historic interior is very difficult to find furniture, whether classic or modern. Leather furniture was more typical of modern.

The sofas were leather, hard, bulky, not designed for placement in the living room, cabinet with wooden shelves. There were quite a few empty spaces with small groups: a table and an armchair, or a small table and armchairs, as well as a large table in the dining room.

The interiors began to be built not according to the principle “entered right and left - two identical entrances”, but in a circle. Apartments are built in an enfilade way: we enter the hallway, then the living room, office, bedroom and so on, on the other side of the hallway there is a hall, which also connects to the living room, which allows you to enter two rooms. To summarize, the suite building of the apartment allows you to go from one room to another in a circle, in fact, all the rooms have two doors: one can enter, the other - go out. Quite typical of modernity.

In some way it repeats roundness, smooth lines that were in nature. In general, modern has exhausted its ideas and decorative motif from nature.

Simple, discreet option

Basically, at the door of Art Nouveau style there are glass inserts with falsetto. Stained glass is not only found in Modern. Inserts are a bit lighter, the frame is darker. There are also typical modern curls and uneven lines resembling a flower.

For the franc of the Belgian branch of Modernity, increased decorativeness is characteristic. There is such a term "whip line", a smooth curve. Vegetative forms adjoin this line, which are intertwined and twisted. Favorite flowers in this period - iris.

The developing female hair, which creates the same effect, and the shape of the furniture, are very close to the scourge strike line. Its plastic, dynamics, tones, which should create a basic concept. This smoothly curving lines, were subject to purely ornamental motifs. It manifested itself in the forms of furniture, always curved smooth lines.

Suitable for wardrobe

Stained glass appears after a long oblivion in the period of modernity. As after the Renaissance, they disappeared from the interiors. Modern stained glass windows stylish, more restrained. The shape of the stained glass and ornamental decor can be on the walls, which manifests itself in a semi-mosaic pattern. It is always close in its style, that is, it is a single ensemble of winding lines that can move from the design.

BoardDo not overdo it with contrast, the exception is a vegetative plot. You can also use abstraction.

Light beige, cream shades of walls

Such walls are usually made behind the sofa or where the TV is located. This design is designed for spacious living rooms. For small rooms, it is inappropriate, because the walls with dark wallpaper will reduce the space.

The combination of colors is suitable for rooms with niches and various projections to emphasize the beauty of the design.
