There isn’t any doubt about the fact that the old world living rooms ooze ultimate charm. Traditional stuff bring in a classic touch to your home’s interiors. Try bringing back the traditional sofas made out of teak, walnut or mahogany, and you will know what it means to recline in those royal seats.
You can also add to the traditional lure by choosing different bold hues for your living room walls. But when you do that, make sure the colors stand well with your taste and that of the visitors too.
“Publish” the schedule and hang it up on the fridge or at a visible place in the kitchen so that every roommate has complete idea and cannot pretend that they were not aware of it! You cannot foresee every problem associated with a specific task and hence a bit of flexibility is advised as well. Tackle problems as they crop up and ensure that you take all your roommates into confidence before chalking up a schedule. There are a few people who genuine enjoy cleaning and if you are one of those, then the whole process should be definitely a lot easier for you!
A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
The divider doesn’t even have to be a sofa! A pair of chairs gets the job done, as shown by the gray and black chairs that separate living room and dining room below.
When you have a room in your home that has many purposes, choosing décor can seem a complex task to tackle. If you’re in this situation, you will need to create a design that is as flexible and versatile as the room itself. For example, select furniture that doubles as storage and a media center that can easily be closed to hide bulky or unsightly electronics such as game consoles.
