Embrace Minimalism. Add space to your bedroom by paring it down to your favorite essentials. The focus of this space is undeniably the bed, so keep furniture pieces and accessories down to a minimum. Even better, use sleek, contemporary built-ins for additional storage. Built-ins maximize storage while looking like they’re not even there. A good built-in around your bed creates a cozy sleeping nook while adding plenty of storage.
Stripes and Patterns. For a unique effect, try painting a stripe or several on your walls. Stripes don’t have to be uniform or always vertical. A stripe can run horizontally or in a pattern.
How do you go about finding a style that works for you? That’s easy. All you have to do is find pieces that you love and emulate their look. Design sites like Freshome are always a good place to start. But, don’t get too caught up in copying the pros. The best designs embrace individuality. Always remember to trust your instincts.
Draw the Eye Upward. A room has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal one. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a manner that draws the eye upward. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a stylish way to accomplish this goal. Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined.
Decorate with Mirrors. Designers often place mirrors strategically in small places in order to make them feel larger. One of the most common small living room ideas is to hang a large mirror in a central location to create a focal point. To reflect light and add a nice ambiance, put it behind a light source such as a candle or pendant lamp. If possible, position a mirror across from your window so it will reflect the view and give the illusion of another window.
Paint the Ceiling. Painting your bedroom ceiling can create a unique visual interest. For a bold look, paint your bed’s headboard wall as a continuous line that carries up to the ceiling, forming a canopy effect like the image below, or add stripes to the ceiling like the black and white bedroom below.
Looks aren’t everything, but don’t write them off. A beautiful kitchen has very tangible benefits. A design you love will impact your daily lifestyle — after all, most people spend a large percentage of their time at home in the kitchen, even if they aren’t cooking! The image above is the perfect example of a kitchen remodel that also fosters an environment to gather round during food prep.
All Over. If budget isn’t a factor, then all-over tile can be an interesting way to merge durability and easy cleaning with style. Vary the color, shape, pattern, size and texture of tiles by using different materials on the floors, on the walls and in the shower. Using all-over tile is a good way to make a small space brighter, as the tile will reflect light.
For those of us who are starting to experiment with interior design, the prospect of putting an entire room together can be daunting. After all, there are so many different components to take into account: furniture, floor coverings — don’t even get me started on art and decor. Going monochrome will guide your decisions, and pull everything together seamlessly.
Bookcase and Levitating Sofa. How many times did you wish to grab an object without having to leave your comfort zone? The Ramsa sofa was created by designer Younes Duret and originated in the idea of having your favorite books at your fingertips. You do not have to get up to greet your admired authors, instead reach out your hand and grab their knowledge in one single move.
It’s good to think about resale value when making changes to a bathroom, especially because white and off-white are the most popular color schemes in that room. That said, your bathroom is a space that all of your guests will likely see at some point; so if you want to make a statement, this is the place to do it. Think about it the same way you would your kitchen backsplash: You want it to be timeless and clean, and to not turn off potential buyers.
