When your vision for the bedroom includes a specific design for the walls, the best choice is custom-made tapestry that embodies all of your wishes and brings something exclusive to the magical blue bedroom! Look to the classic Greek houses for some white-and-blue interior inspiration! Their traditional look channels the beauty and the freedom of the open sea with the mesmerizing choice of colors! A well organized bedroom with many neutral elements can quickly start feeling monotonous, so a simplistic light blue wall is the best thing to keep the interior refreshing!
The first few months of 2017 have seen wood emerge as the big winner when it comes to home design and decorating. Inclination of homeowners and designers towards materials that are far more natural and an ambiance that is relaxing and warm has meant that wood has topped the trends chart in the past few months. From fabulous wooden siding, to wooden ceilings and slats that combine privacy with insulation, wood is quickly becoming the go to material in the contemporary interior. So, why not jump in on this natural bandwagon by bringing wood into your dining room?
In our opinion, every home should have some artwork. It's a part of interior design that can get put low on the priority list, for “art connoisseurs only”, or seen as optional in your space.
Decor with Personality Reclaimed barn wood need not always be relegated to the walls alone, and you can give it a more practical and prominent role in the dining room by using it to craft a custom dining table or chairs. These additions obviously seem more at home in rustic and farmhouse-style dining spaces, but they can also add an interesting twist to your modern dining room. If this little move away from the beaten path does not interest you, then you might want to consider a credenza or buffet covered in reclaimed wood to give the dining space a cozy, inviting aura.
Not only do plants give your home a touch of nature and organic influence, but they also greatly increase the air quality in your home. There are several different kinds of house plants that need little care and maintenance to flourish indoors, but provide big benefits by removing harmful toxins from your air. Our list of 9 air-cleaning houseplants is a pretty good place to get started.
A reclaimed wood accent wall with a distressed finish is a cool way to give the dining space that shabby chic vibe without moving away from the modern color palette. The rest of the room can still remain contemporary with a small accessory or the dining table complementing the wooden accent wall with a similar finish. Simple and neutral finishes for the reclaimed wood wall also help in blending it easily with the rest of the open plan living area.
Even if you lack a ‘green thumb', a plant is definitely one of the home essentials everyone should have — and not just for aesthetics.
You can also gather decor from around the house, such as greenery and metallic bowls. Today’s featured centerpiece includes a combination of warm and cool tones. Grey meets gold in an irresistible pairing that showcases the power of mixing metallics. To keep the display from being too busy, stick with neutrals, such as silver, gold, linen and natural wood. Pops of greenery will add life, along with selections such as seeded eucalyptus.
The key lies in how you incorporate trends into your space. Limit en vogue items to the cheaper and more replaceable aspects of the space — think throw pillows or lighting. That way, if styles change a few years down the road, you'll be able to easily swap those elements out for more current styles without a huge cost. Not exactly the case if you splurge on a green velvet sofa that you can't bear the sight of in a few years.
On the second floor, the floor-to-ceiling patio door and a skylight on one side both allow light to bound in. The central staircase is open so there no hallway walls close off the light. (Only simple white handrails mirror the geometry of the split floor layout.) And, the wood ceilings and interior windows make it seem as spacious and wondrous to look up as it is to look down.
