We did talk about the minimalist appeal and the space-savvy design of contemporary fireplaces, and the three kitchens below showcase this aspect in a truly mesmerizing fashion. The first kitchen in white utilizes the fireplace as a sculptural focal point that wows you instantly and gives the kitchen a fiery, dynamic backdrop. The second contemporary kitchen clad in marble turns the cool fireplace with a Calacatta marble surround into a feature that binds together the cozy conversation zone. And even if you want to usher in a hint of rustic magic into the contemporary kitchen, the sleek fireplace fits in elegantly!
How we style a dining room is one of those decisions that not only affects our home interior, but also our quality of life. A dining room must be beautiful to look at, sure, but it must also be convenient to dine in. The most important piece of the dining room is, understandably, a dining table. There’s more to decorating a dining room than just picking out a table and setting it in the center of the room. Additions like a stylish rug can make a big difference to the overall ambiance.
There isn‘t any doubt about the fact that the old world living rooms ooze ultimate charm. Traditional stuff bring in a classic touch to your home‘s interiors.
Adding to them, rich hued and heavily embroidered drapes would usher in the traditional charm by all means. If you remember, we all used to - and still do - love our furniture and curtain clothes made out of velvet, silk or brocade. The enticing presence the traditional stuff brings into your living rooms is beyond compare.
A popular style of L shaped sofa design comes from the minimalistic style of living. The clean lines of these sofas add to any living room and make a stylish talking point, as well as being the perfect place to curl up for an evening.
Open plan living room ideas Created by ‘Ownby Design‘, this living room is the part of an open floor plan but a few steps down distinguishes it from the rest of the space along with giving a touch of intimacy. Here, the living room, kitchen, and the dining area are flowing from one space to another but still have visibly distinct partitions. The sectional right in front of the divider and custom-designed pillows have created a comfy seating for watching your favorite show on the TV.
Ferm Living designs and manufactures “interior products with a graphic touch” - as they like to express themselves. Here, you can find beautiful items and accessories for your home and the showroom itself conveys inspiration and a feeling of comfort. Good thing we found it on Nordic Design - the showroom‘s interiors are meant to be shared and admired.
Another winning feminine touch? Floral patterns! The room below features them abundantly. From a red and white floral sofa to floral artwork and a vase of fresh blooms, there‘s no shortage of vegetation in this space. Yet the combination of bold red with crisp white keeps the room from being too girly.
There‘s a myth that your hardwood flooring shouldn‘t be too dark because it would shrink your living space even more. Well you know what? It‘s true. Colors have a big impact in creating that spacious feel for your home. You can use cream, beige, or light lime. Also, you can consider using lots of mirrors … they create that “large” feeling that you‘re chasing.
You can go after this design if you have an L-shaped divider or at least any kind of divider separating your living room from other spaces of the house. You can box in the divider with drywall and add an attractive wood top as shown in this picture. The divider can even be replaced by open shelving, railings, or possible with a built-in sofa. A couple of pots with flower and plant, table lamps, a ceiling fan, sectional, and a couple of sofas will do the rest for you.
