Spring is in full bloom and as we inch deeper into the season, and closer to summer, people are looking for more reasons to spend their time outdoors. Indeed, the warmth of the sunshine, lush greenery and colorful palette of the outside world is difficult to ignore. Unfortunately we can’t be outside all of the time, but here are a few simple methods to bring the best elements of the outdoors in.
Or double the fun with a pair of matching sofas! Below we see a living room from the Brown Residence, designed by The Construction Zone. Two lean sofas add symmetry while creating the ideal face-to-face seating arrangement.
Even if you adore classic of massive wood furniture, it’s going to be hard to fit them in a small living room. And you know it. Therefore, it would be a much better idea to go for minimalist furniture (custom made would be ideal).
In small spaces and wide open spaces alike, delineating room from room is another design challenge that can’t be ignored! How do you divide your space with style? If built-ins are an option, why not use the fireplace as a functional screen? Below we see a Brio Clear Red tile fireplace from Modwalls.
The light is filtered through a precious shade of reflecting and refracting mouth-blown glass and polymethylmethacrylate beads to create subtle and intricate models on the walls.
Next, select furniture that is comfortable enough for an afternoon nap, but elegant enough for hosting company. Be sure there is plenty of seating and, if possible, arrange all furniture so those seated in the living room will have a clear view of each other and the entertainment center if one exists.
