Aubine Duclos. Living Room. January 31st , 2018.
The living room is the heart of every home, where the whole family gathers to spend time together and where guests are entertained. Achieving the perfect design for the living room is no easy task. There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration and color is at the top of the list.
The process is remarkably easy, though not without danger – fill a balloon with water, dip it up to the water level in melted wax and repeat. Go above the waterline and it might just pop. After a few times down and back, the exterior surface should be sufficiently waxed to form a rounded solid candle-worthy shape that can hold a small votive or tea light. After a few iterations, the resulting (cooled) candles should be tipped over and drained – and the water balloon remnants discarded. And to keep it level: setting the bottom on a solid surface during the process and the top after the balloon is removed should do the trick. For more science-minded types or slight thrill-seekers, these candles might make for a more festive holiday craft project than most. Full instructions at CandleTech.
Obviously, depending on the mood you’re trying to create, there are tons of colors to choose from. For a serene and relaxing ambiance, go with pastel colors like peach or white. If you want the room to feel extra warm and cozy you can paint the walls brown. If you like strong contrasts, then choose stripes. The black and white combo is always nice. Then there’s also the option of using a vibrant color like red, orange or green if you want the room to look fresh and energetic.
You can maintain the simplicity of your living room and still find a way to add color by introducing accent pieces. They can take the form of furniture or decorations such as the pillows or the rug.
Tall umbrella trees were the inspiration behind this home renovation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fabian Tan Architect was asked to turn a traditional pitched roof home into a striking modern home. While the upstairs renovation was minimal, the transformation on the ground floor was quite dramatic.
