11. Firm: fsndThe horizontal groove lines on the false ceiling gives this living and dining area a wider look.
1. Mind the traffic flowRearrange your living room layout to make space for the seniors to move around without knocking over or bumping into furniture. Opt for clean, clutter-free layouts that ensure comfortable thoroughfare. Here, an L-shaped sofa and round centre-table are cleverly spaced to allow free passage and yet maintain an elegant living room layout. A smaller portable table stands close to the sofa, and doesn’t interrupt the traffic flow in the rest of the space.Tip: Small pieces of furniture, such as a low ottoman or pouf, can come in handy when someone wants to put their feet up in the formal areas – and I’m pretty sure that won’t be only the over-sixties.

9. The classic L-shaped sectional sofa separates the seating area from the dining space. Along with track arms, it has console armrests in yellow and black. The subtle sheen of the upholstery brings a gentle touch of glamor.
For a crisp and contemporary look, stripes are a great choice. Stripes not only make the room look longer (when used along the shorter length), but also shifts the focus from the air-conditioning unit to the scenic ceiling. I love how the wood planked ceiling graces this living room with elegance. With such a simple ceiling, you need to balance the overall look by picking the right contrasting colours and materials for the whole living room. Consider a mix of light and dark shades, and rough and smooth textures. Again, this welcoming living room rightly caters to this design strategy, with the matte ceiling and soft drapes complementing the hard and glossy marble flooring. The feature wall balances the plain walls around the room.
3. Bring an element of colourA lamp can be used as the element that brings a pop of colour to the decor of a room. You can pick a lampshade of a hue that matches the general tone of the rest of the room or it could be in total contrast. Just like the red lampshade in this living-cum-dining room that is otherwise dominated by darker neutral tones.
