The exposed timber beam at the ceiling is one of the modern design element in this living. Instead of covering those timber beams with plaster ceiling, staining the timber beam with brown hue makes it stand out and match with the floor.

There is also a large glass sliding door that combining the outdoors and indoors area. It brings in an abundance of fresh air and natural lighting.

Muji is a well-known Japanese retail brand. Muji’s distinctive style is no-frills, minimalist and functional. When we incorporate it into interior design, it basically is minimalism design with a touch of Japanese element.

Muji-style usually features the use of white and grey colour as well as timber. In this living room, wall and ceiling are both painted in white. No plaster ceiling, track light with exposed wiring routing are presented here.

Everything is kept to minimal with Muji bean bags as seating, a TV and a simple TV console. Nothing extravagant.

The key elements of a luxury living room design are eye-catching furniture pieces, sculpture, feature walls, unique lighting fixtures, and metallic texture.

The living room shown above is luxury but not flamboyant. The luxury style is more subtle where the use of metallic gold colour is on the art piece as well as the gold-coloured feature wall.

The sumptuos sofa and the chairs set a luxury tone for the living rooms.
