This year it is all about creating a new mixture of styles with the help of modern contrasting flooring, geometric area rugs or well placed light sources. Blinds, vertical or horizontal, will add a contemporary feel of industrial space to the comfortable living room. Quality furnishings and decorative elements can be combined to create an inviting living room interior design. Restored antique furniture items find their place in the trends of 2011, together with bold colour blends.
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 diffuse light is partly filtered through the epoxy lacquered metal frame whose shape reminds of stars. This decorative frame, in spite of being made of metal, seems delicate, airy and origami-like. It is available in glossy black, white, red or chartreuse green. This lamp is suitable to be hung as a cluster, at varying heights, in one larger and one smaller version in the same color or 2 different colors according to your design scheme, and makes a lovely and original impression.
Another key element is life and lots of it. Add a couple of house plants here and there to liven up your living space, and flowers to bring you joy. While fresh cut flowers can make a beautiful arrangement, planted flowers or bonsais are a gift that will keep on giving possibly even year round. However, if indoor flora will induce an allergy attack for you or someone in your family, fake it with synthetic plants and floral prints.
This beautifully designed showroom caught my attention from the first photo a clean and sleek white background pierced by black hanging lamps and inspiring details. The Ferm Living Showroom in Copenhagen, Denmark is a promising space that encompasses the Danish company’s products in a well-lit space.
