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.
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 design and the position of the office in the home, belong to the group more complex and challenging sub–items in the designing of the entire home. Trap is that you need to distinguish domestic space from the office space. Here the major role plays and personal the profession, and that will help you to opt for a certain type of design of the home office. Hence, those with more complex professions who want space to be fully concentrated, without any visual element that would created some visual noise, can opt for a home office without windows, with a table set against the wall with minimal decor as not to distracts their attention at work. But when it comes for the artistic souls desired office should be open to the nature and landscape, with desk set against large windows that connect them with the nature as a constant source of inspiration and creativity, while offering a smooth and relaxing and working environment. The following proposals for contemporary design of the work space in the home, include ideas for the first and second type of home offices.
The contemporary design style is one of those styles that you just can’t say no to. This is the main reason why we have so many various collections featuring all kinds of designs from the contemporary style. Our latest collections featuring the contemporary design originate from a showcase that we are doing of this design which has by now completely covered the interior areas and pretty much all of the outdoor areas as well with collections featuring the contemporary patio, landscape, deck and porch. But the best part is yet to come in today’s collection which features the contemporary swimming pool design. We are talking about the traditional swimming pool. Creating one in your backyard is going to open so many possibilities for enjoyment and will make you stay a lot more outside.
The contemporary design style, especially the interior part of it is getting very popular as a great part of the new homeowners choose it as their base design of their new home. This is not the case with new homes only, in fact, a lot of the people that are renovating their home from whatever style it previously was design in (mostly traditional) decide to update their house with the contemporary design style. The vanity is without a doubt the most important feature in any bathroom, but it is often overlooked in favor of more dramatic bathroom fixtures like glamorous tubs and luxurious showers. Vanities are so significant because they are the locus of activity in the room: They are the sites of most daily hygienic activities and store most bathroom supplies. Plus, infinitely mutable, vanities usually set the style and atmosphere for a bathroom. If you are beginning a bathroom remodel – and you absolutely should, considering the boost in value homes receive from updated bathrooms – here’s what you should know about the all–important vanity.
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.
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.)
Sink and Fixtures: The sink is perhaps the most flexible and creative decision you have to make for your bathroom vanity. Bathroom sinks – unlike largely utilitarian kitchen sinks – are major design elements, and they come in all different styles and scopes to suit your tastes. Pedestal. Best for guest baths where storage isn’t a necessity, pedestals are sleek and simple. Wall–mount. Like pedestals, what wall–mounted sinks lack in storage they make up in chic simplicity. Under–counter. Allowing for plenty of counter space, under–counter sinks lack rims and look especially clean. Vessel. Dramatic focal points in the bathroom, vessel sinks sit on top of counters. Drop–ins. The most common style of bathroom sink, drop–ins are highly functional and easy to install. Once you choose a sink, you can dress it up with faucets that match its design. Like sinks themselves, bathroom bling comes in all shapes and sizes, but it is drastically easier to change fixtures if you decide you want a change. Thus, you should feel comfortable experimenting with different styles as your vanity tastes change.
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.
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.

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
