The South African living room is a place to relax, entertain and unwind with family and friends. This Ideabook is filled with details and design ideas for a typical living area, that although may be small in size, is also quite big on elegance and simplicity. The ideal living room has a comfortable sofa, coffee table for resting drinks or food and of course a TV for those chilled nights. Modern homes now see the dining area incorporated into the living space, and the team of interior designers have expertly picked out which elements of decor are a must-have in this space, let's begin exploring!

1. Sofa selection

A dining area that forms part of an open plan living space doesn't require that many extra aspects to make it interesting, but for a personal touch without taking up too much space, a shelf with some photographs and mementos is a superb choice. The minimalist look of this dining area is uncluttered and tidy, just the way we like it!

4. Wallpaper and lighting
