Color Scheme

One of the easiest ways to transform your small living room is to choose a color scheme that suits your taste and personality. You can go for a neutral palette, such as light grey, taupe, or white, and add some pops of color with accents, such as soft pink, burgundy, royal blue, coral, or soft green. These colors can create a contrast and a focal point in your living room, making it more lively and inviting.

You can also experiment with different textures and patterns, such as velvet, faux fur, geometric, floral, or abstract, to add some depth and interest to your color scheme. You can use these elements in your furniture, rugs, pillows, curtains, or wall art.

Windows and Lighting

Another way to make your small living room look bigger and brighter is to take advantage of the natural light and the city view. If you have floor-to-ceiling windows, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the city skyline and let the sunlight fill your living room. You can also opt for sheer or light-colored curtains that allow the light to pass through and create a soft and airy effect.

For the artificial lighting, you can choose modern and sleek floor standing lamps and table lamps that complement your color scheme and furniture. You can also use candles and candlesticks to create a warm and cozy ambiance in the evening.

Furniture and Accessories

The furniture and accessories you choose for your small living room can make a big difference in how it looks and feels. You want to avoid clutter and overcrowding, but you also want to have enough seating and storage space for your needs. Here are some tips to help you choose the right furniture and accessories for your small living room:

Choose furniture that is multifunctional, such as a sofa bed, a coffee table with storage, or a TV stand with shelves. This way, you can save space and have more options for your living room.

Choose furniture that is proportional to your living room size and shape. For example, if you have a rectangular living room, you can use a sectional sofa or a L-shaped sofa to create a cozy seating area. If you have a square living room, you can use a round or oval coffee table to balance the angles and create a smooth flow.

Choose furniture that is light-colored or transparent, such as a glass coffee table, a white sofa, or a clear acrylic chair. This way, you can create an illusion of more space and avoid blocking the view and the light.

Choose accessories that are well-chosen and meaningful, such as decorative pillows, potted plants, vases, books, trays, pictures, framed pictures, candles, candlesticks, and others. These accessories can add some personality and charm to your living room, as well as some texture and color. However, you don’t want to overdo it and create a cluttered and messy look. You want to keep it simple and elegant, and only display the items that you love and use.


These are some of the new design ideas that you can use to create a modern and stylish living room in a small city apartment. You can mix and match these ideas according to your preference and budget and create a living room that reflects your style and personality. Remember, a small living room doesn’t have to be boring or cramped. It can be cozy and chic, and a place where you can relax and enjoy the city life.
