Laverne Beaulieu. Living Room. July 25th , 2017.
The history of houses as we know them today began back in prehistoric days. Back then people used to live in trees. They then moved into caves and later they started building shelters. With time, they began to create more elaborate designs and to make larger and stronger houses for their families. By the 1500s we already had houses that were 3 or 4-stories high.
This is another rather small living room with an interior based on strong and striking contrasts. Pattern also plays an important role in this case and was used to create focal points throughout the room. The wooden staircase adds color but it also maintains the simplicity of the decor with the glass handrail.
Besides the circular living room and the rectangular formal dining room – also open to the outdoors when its large glass doors are open – the first floor is one big, wide-open space. Shades of white are used extensively to let natural light bounce off of all of the surfaces and further add visual space to the home.
When the interior needs to be simple, clean and airy, many designers use contrasts to create focal points. For example, this living room features a combination of light and dark shades, beiges and dark brown or even black.
Hanging wall and flush floor units are more physically connected to wall surfaces, but the shelving and cabinets set in the center of a room are arguably even more architectural. These serve as spatial dividers and room separators, semi-permeable barriers that act like partition walls as well as storage areas. Crafting decor objects is a holiday tradition that some might find a bit dull for more adventurous designs lovers … unless (perhaps) it involves hot wax, a water balloon and the slight risk of having it all blow up in your face.
