As DFW homebuilders, Normandy Homes understands that homeowners prefer modern home designs and open floor plans. The open floor plan in a home should start with the living room. It’s the first room that guests will see and where everyone will gather to enjoy the company of others, which means it should be inviting and unique to you.

Here are a few modern home design ideas that can bring your Normandy Homes living room up a notch!





Sometimes true elegance comes from being a little playful. Try mixing and matching different, unique patterns to find your ideal living room décor.

Using light colors and allowing natural light in can make your living room feel open and inviting to anyone who enters. Add accent pillows of vibrant color to avoid a flat or dull color pallet.

You can never go wrong with creating an accent wall to give your living room an extra dimension. Whether you use wallpaper, like in the picture, or paint the wall, make sure the accent is consistent with the rest of the room’s design.

Natural Elements

Tying in natural elements of polished woods and minerals can make your space feel chic and rustic. Use different types and shades of wood to keep the design from appearing repetitive.
