Diana's First HouseTraditional Living Room, London

This is a traditional Victorian terraced house with a double reception room separated by huge wooden doors. The front half is used as a living room where the family like to relax and watch TV, or sit when they are entertaining family and friends. The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball All White, and the skirting in Cornforth White. The floorboards are original, sanded and stained. Bright colours (purple sofa with lime green cushions) help inject colour whilst the black and white pattern, the glass and mirror finishes help keep the look stylish and chic.

Example of a classic formal and enclosed medium tone wood floor living room design in London with white walls, a standard fireplace, a metal fireplace and a tv stand —  Houzz

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Avoid the “corridor effect.” “Choose items that can be positioned to break up the feeling of a long, thin room, such as small coffee tables, side tables or armchairs,” Greenhalgh says. “Break up the corridor effect by positioning pieces of furniture in clusters, instead of in a row.” This tricks the eye into seeing a wider space. “For example, pick different seating options and arrange them together, instead of having just one long sofa against the long wall,” she says. And don’t be afraid to use bold furnishings, fixtures and fittings, Black advises, noting that they will add visual interest.

i like the green pillows with the purple. Maybe paint the wall mounted tv holder this color.
