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 end of the hot and sunny days of summer is getting near but that is not a reason not to make the best of what’s left. There are numerous ways you can enjoy the summer and some of those include going on a vacation to a place that has a sea or if you prefer a mountain resort. But you can’t always be somewhere, so you should make sure that you can enjoy the beautiful weather even when you are at home. Do you feel your backyard lacks attitude and style? When was the last time you enjoyed spending some relaxing time out there? Summer is just around the corner and whether you have a big or small family, this is the ideal season to spend time having fun outside. Outdoor activities don’t have to be far from home when you have an inviting area designated for it.
The Mini Wine Cellar. Built into the cabinets beneath the counter, the mini wine cellar offers storage for entertaining your guests. Wines are held in this temperature–controlled fridge for easy access to your favorite beverages without over–packing the fridge. Your guests will love the seemingly never–ending supply of bottles kept at just the right temperature. Open Shelving. Not all of your cabinet space has to be hidden behind doors. Make convenient grab–and–go shelving that shows off your dishes, books or pantry items for an eclectic look in your kitchen. Now, your kitchen items become part of the decor! Hang open shelves or simply take off the cabinet doors and outline the boxes with 2×1 boards, painting the boards to match the rest of your cabinets and the interiors of the shelves white for a fresh look. More Hidden Storage. Don’t be afraid to try something different. Bring you cabinets all the way down to the countertops for an elegant look that actually provides more storage space. You now benefit from that extra shelf, something that works really well for long kitchens. You can also extend those cupboards up to the ceiling to get the full length of the cupboard. These cupboards can then be used for storing dishes, cookbooks, baking ingredients, and more in a convenient, but out of sight, location. Of course, if your kitchen needs updating, then consider fresh coats of paint, a new backsplash, tile floors and more for the ultimate workspace. With your kitchen in top–notch condition, you will be ready to shock and awe guests as the “hostess with the mostest.”
Bring On The Butterflies. If you are a less active person, you may see yourself drinking a refreshing beverage in the morning while you watch the butterflies dance around your garden. The best thing you can do to attract these beauties of nature is to plant flowers that are rich in nectar. You will then have double effectiveness, the soothing view of your gorgeous flower garden, and the ubiquitous presence of these curious little butterflies flying around your yard. Dress Your Deck. If you have a deck in your backyard, you have the advantage of various floor levels; this means you can easily design different zones for each of your favourite activities. For example, a dining area can be created with pergolas and vines to render a more secluded and private place for you and your guests to have a meal or share some drinks in. By making every space have its own function, you can enjoy the practicality of an organized backyard getaway.
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 bedroom should be synonym for relaxing and cozy place, where you will spend the most of the time. That’s why you need to try to find always some good ideas to improve the look of it, and make it more comfortable and more pleasant. The furniture should be comfortable to provide good and quality rest and sleep. Beside the bed, the bedroom should contain one cozy chair, where you will read some book, or drink tea. The chair also need to be comfortable to help you to relax after a long stressful day. The chairs need to be located near the bed, or if you want some modern design you can set one small table also. In addition, you can see a bunch of ideas how to decorate your dream bedroom with cozy chair! No matter how small, your garden or balcony is, it can be turned into an amazing outdoor oasis. There are numerous design elements which, when combined together, can create a wonderful place to enjoy in the hot summer days. The end result will be the escape from the reality that you can use every day – without travel and plane tickets. Tucked in a corner of the yard, you can use almost any objects to create a secret and cozy spot. Children and adults alike can get away from the bustle of everyday life. Use chairs, benches or swings. Sometimes you have to be inventive when it comes to a privacy. Well placed tree or shrub may help in the creation of a discrete space.
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.

In many homes the desk is mandatory piece of furniture. Whether it comes to children’s desk or a desk with a computer that is used by the whole family, the time spenden on this table is not negligible. Therefore, we should pay attention to choosing the appropriate table, depending on the type of work and the age of the person that will use it. The table should have above or below, shelves or drawers to store all needed stuff. This will enable greater visibility and more free surface to work. When it comes to teen’s room, table should be set that way, to allow full concentration of the child, such as, for example, in the corner of the room. An ideal place for a desk is by the window, to have natural light for succesfull work. If the table is not set by the window, the lack of daylight should be upgraded with table lamp, which is mandatory piece in every work space. Do you have a garden or terrace? Ah you are so lucky! Just look at our examples and your outdoor room might look like this, with a little imagination. Can you imagine that you are resting on one of these seductive beds with champagne in hand.

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
