If you could only choose one room in your home to put your heart and soul into designing, the living room would top the list. It’s that treasured (and often off-limits) space that sets the tone for your entire decorating style. Seeing Red: The secret to taming a fiery red? Balance it with pops of white. A smattering of dove white wall accents with the white fireplace, chair rail, and coffee table keep the bold color in check. Pattern Play: Trellis, ikats, florals oh my! The trick to mixing patterns is to pick a color theme here, reds, browns, and blues and to use big swaths of solid color (the brown sofa, red chairs, and green ottoman) to anchor the space. Light and Airy: You can pack a lot into your living room even a dining set if you keep furnishings from weighing the space down. Lucite dining chairs, an open weave coffee table, and an unobstructed wall of windows keeps this room from feeling cramped.

Mirrors: Like buying a rug that is the wrong size for the dining room, an inadequate mirror looks awkward above a vanity. The rules here are strict: The mirror should be exactly as wide as the vanity and hang in the middle of the wall space between the vanity and the ceiling, with about six inches of gap on either side. Of course, the second rule may change if your bathroom ceilings are particularly high; you may want to experiment by cutting facsimiles out of paper and judging the look. The current trend for bathroom mirrors is to surround the glass with a bold wooden frame, as though the mirror were decorative instead of a necessary bathroom feature. The effect does make the room look more polished, but it may be expensive if your mirror is large.
Let The Waterworks Begin. There’s something particularly attractive about water. Sometimes, we feel the need to get closer to it wherever we see it, especially if it’s good–looking.

For children of school age, when it comes for decorating their room especially important is the choice of a suitable desk and chair. Children now sit more than 10 hours a day, although the human body does not match such a passive lifestyle. Children are particularly susceptible to long periods of sitting in the wrong position. During the growing, they need to have furniture which can continuously adapt to their growing body. Good seating position is important for the proper development of the body. Furniture should not allow children to sit bent, feet not to hang in the air for too high chair, and should also provide enough legroom under the desk. The seat must have a back height adjustment to enable the legs while sitting, in the knee to be comfortable.
Thanks to our previous collections of mid–century designs linked above, you probably know what are the main features of this style as well as how to recognize one. To that, we are just going to add something about the mid–century dining room. As you will be able to notice from the following images, the dining tables are usually round and have space for 4 people, but that’s not always the case. Depending on the family size or owner preference, the dining table can be bigger as well as rectangular or square with sharp edges. The arrangement of small homes, inevitably, requires more creativity and diligence because their design often come across the problem with the lack of space that is difficult to deal. When space is not on our side, small and compact dining, arranged sophisticated and attractive, and skillfully planned, are increasingly ideal replacement. Compact small dining rooms show ingenuity in dealing with this problem everyday and eternal. With good organization of space and small dining can be functional and comfortable. You need to use small furniture and all that in bright colors. If possible, enter some mirror, that will visually increase the space. Here are a few examples of such dining rooms that can serve as idea if you have a small space.
Silver Accents: Cool metal touches give this room a sophisticated air. The scrolling mirror, the legs of the coffee table, even the fireplace andirons are all glossed in chic silver. Writing on the Wall: For truly unique (and sometimes quirky) decor. You can search by theme, type, even lyrics to your favorite Men Without Hats song. Does your living room work double duty as a front entry? Keep the two separated and well defined by lining one wall with a welcoming wallpaper, and keeping the living room furniture appropriated to an area rug. Flower Power: Here’s a bloomin’ brilliant idea: Keep oversized patterns in check by limiting them to well defined spaces (here a bouquet of blue flowers covers an occasional seat and an oversized roman shade). It will keep the powerful pattern from taking over the room. Back to Back: Create a dynamic seating arrangement by placing a set of sofas in the center of the room and with their backs to each other. It’s a bold move that creates two conversation corners.

The table is set so that light comes from the left side. If the table is not set next to a window, the lack of daylight should be upgraded with table lamp, which is mandatory. The functionality and design of the table, merged into one, should be perfect piece of furniture in your home. If you have little space available, you can opt for a compact work table that conceals the components of a computer, so when not in use, all parts will be hidden and placed in the drawers. Living room as the most visited place in one home, should represent your spirit and your affinities. It should be properly decorated with all required rules. Above all, it should be functional and comfortable, to provide pleasant stay and quality rest after a stressful day. When it comes for the living room, there are several thing that usually can be found here: sofa, small table, TV stand, and some decorative items such as shelves, mirrors, lamps. Coffee tables or club tables are part of every contemporary living room. They can be found in all desired styles. Today, we present you one collection of some modern coffee tables with storage. Beside its beauty, they are also functional because they have place for extra storage.
Viewing Area: The eternal question: What to do with the TV? If space allows, try placing your television in a corner so the flow of the room is uninterrupted (but where you can still enjoy Downton Abbey comfortably from the sofa). Bursts of Cheer: Maxi floral prints and super-sized stripes are whimsical touches that give this living room an affable appearance. Warm and Inviting: Nothing says, “curl up and stay awhile” like an extra-deep, sink into me sofa and a plush ottoman to rest your feet. Load on Layers: Stimulate the senses with plenty of textures, including a scratchy jute rug underfoot, a tweedy wallpaper, and a luxurious cashmere throw on the sofa. Polished Pairs: Ah, the power of two: A pair of identical console tables flank the fireplace and two different, but similarly colored, sofas face each other for a pulled together look. Natural Elements: A mix of polished and unfinished wood pieces, and a neutral shade on the wall, can make a room feel chic and not campy. Feeling the Blues: A palette of navy blues makes this room feel instantly inviting and cozy. It’s a durable color for big pieces of furniture, like this plush sectional, since it masks everyday dirt. Small-Space Solution: The trick to turning a small-space into an elegant living area is to use appropriately sized furniture. A sectional sofa might seem too big for a petite area but in fact it’s the perfect size and helps define the space. (Using small furniture in a tight space only exacerbates a compact feeling.)

In most people’s vocabularies‚ design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. by Steve Jobs
