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.
Besides the beautiful sandy beaches, which are our favorite in the summer, in the world there are places that are literally created for enjoyment. There are many luxury swimming pools with impressive views up to the pools in natural reserves, but we made one small collection of some of the most exotic pools in the world. In these photos you’ll believe that your fantasies can be realized, just need to choose your favorite destination. The mid–century swimming pool design is very similar to the modern swimming pool design so it might be a bit hard to tell the difference between the two. But there’s an easy way to make sure that your swimming pool would be discovered as a mid–century design. The best way to achieve that is to invest in a mid–century patio around your swimming pool. And of course, the most important thing is to make sure that your home gets a mid–century exterior design. The collections linked above contain a large amount of great designs as well as internal links to even more collections with even more mid–century designs.
Lighting in the kitchen of one of the most important elements of the interior – has to be perfectly functional and quality to be able to work safely and operate the machines, but also imaginatively and creatively arranged to provide a more comfortable environment. For pleasant lighting in the kitchen are the same rules as for other rooms – light must be varied and to comes from different sources. Most designers are using the lighting in the kitchen from three categories: central, functional and light that evokes the atmosphere. For all of them it is possible to install silencers. Functional lighting means bright light directly above the work surface, sink and electrical appliance. In some kitchens to the underside of the upper elements can be found red lights, while in the other in the cupboards can be built halogen lamps. There are cabinets with lamps that are placed above the desk. In addition you can see some inspirational ideas of track kitchen lighting. While browsing our previous collections of the traditional interior design style showcase, you might have noticed that we haven’t yet covered the traditional home bar. Well, we are going to fix that now and add it to our long list of collections featuring the traditional kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, dining room, home office and kids’ room.

Countertop: Usually, home remodelers devote weeks of deliberation to their kitchen countertops only to flippantly choose the material that makes up their bathroom vanities. However, vanity countertops are just as integral to the room’s design – if not more so, considering the smaller space. By hiring a reliable cabinetmaker, you can select from a bevy of countertop materials, including: granite, marble, quartzite, laminate, tile, wood, concrete. Of course, some countertop materials will be easier to maintain than others in the humid bathroom environment. For example, wood counters, unless immaculately sealed, will soak up steam like a sponge and rot. Tile, though amply customizable, may be difficult to clean with the small, rough grout lines. Generally, the safest and easiest choices are granite and marble, which create a sophisticated, stunning look and little hassle.
One of the most difficult tasks in creating a positive environment for work at home, is to create aesthetically refined space, productive and free from everything that takes attention. Thanks to the development of technology and the Internet, in the last few years home offices are becoming bigger hit in interior designing. Prior to engage enthusiastically in this adventure, you need to consider well what business you want to start and whether it is better to have a home office or classical. The home office is a true blessing for those who do not have funds, and want to start their own business. If you already have decided on this step, first you need to do is separate place in your home where you will be office. You can empty the room or to use a smaller room that you use constructively. If you don’t have big available space, find some corner, place one table and one comfortable chair, and your work space is nearly done. Check out some functional proposals how to make tiny home office for extra productivity. Depending on your job and it’s requirements, working in a home office might turn out to be far more productive instead of having to travel to work somewhere else. If this is how you are going to work, that means that you have the power to change it any way you want it. You can personalize it or style it according to your own taste.
Lighting: Because most of your day’s (and night’s) preparation takes place in the bathroom, it is perhaps most essential that you light this space in your house right. Too much, too little, or otherwise improper lighting around the vanity could result in garish grooming, so you don’t want to skimp on your lighting budget. While it may be wise to install dimmable recessed lighting around the rest of the room, such lights are dangerous around the vanity, where they can cast deceiving shadows on the face. Instead, vertical fixtures or sconces mounted on either side of the mirror will provide even light. These task lights should total 150 watts, providing sufficient brightness that won’t wash out the face’s features.
The busy lives of the modern human barely leave any space to spend more time for a healthy full–sized meal, especially with the whole family. But just because it is hard to find the time, doesn’t mean that you should give up and not make it real. Family meals are a great way to spend time with your family away from the TV, phone or computer. But in order to fully enjoy your family meal, your dining room needs to be taken good care of which is what we are going to show you with these Scandinavian dining room designs. You guessed right, today, we are going to be talking about the rustic dining room interior design. There is no need to say what makes a dining room to be rustic because we have had so many collections in which we have explained different aspects of the style by now. The most important features are easy to see right away by looking at the following pictures – vast use of wood as a material for furniture as well as construction, lots of accents and small details which ends up in having a very warm and cozy environment.
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.)

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.

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
