The first step that gets things moving along is designing a firm, fixed schedule for cleaning your home. It doesn’t matter whether you do it every day or once a week or even once a month; but having a well-defined schedule is crucial. It is one thing to have a schedule and a whole different proposition when it comes to following it strictly and without fail. Have the discipline to do so.
Ever wondered why you tend to take a trip down memory lane when you would want to experience something sweet? Being modern might be in, but things that give you the ultimate happiness could always be the traditional ones. That’s also true in the case of your living rooms, too. Try bringing back the olden day magic to your living rooms and you would agree with what we say remember how Steve Jobs was famous for saying ‘What is the purpose of a sofa?
Living room layout is a fascinating area of interior design, because the living room is the place where we spend time entertaining, relaxing, and visiting with others. One of the most visible areas of the home, your living room can set the tone for the entire dwelling. The fact that this part of the house is so much fun to decorate is both exciting and potentially problematic. Why problematic? Because we often cram all of our favorite belongings into the space without considering how the pieces fit together.
Designed by Poul Henningsen and first created 40 years ago, The PH Artichoke is one of the masterpieces of the house Louis Poulsen. Manufactured in a limited edition of 50, this exquisite pendant lamp is the final and perfected product in a series of variations. If you follow the PH series, you notice that each lamp seems to be a blooming and unfolding sequence, from the smallest lamp variant up to the refined artichoke. It is made from 72 leaves which cover the light source in such manner that one only perceives the reflected light. This gorgeous, golf leaf plated artichoke, with an 840 mm diameter, is an anniversary version that celebrates fine taste, exquisite design and not least, stuffed pockets.
Without being heartwrenchingly expensive, this original designer lamp can add a touch of modernism and glamor to your living room. Simple and geometric, it impresses through texture and light effect. The light source is enveloped by shades covered with actual 24 karat gold leaves. A bit of optical physics has gone into this design, in addition to the glam. The gold is hand-finished to be so thin as to permit the short-wave blue light to pervade through it, while the warm light components are reflected on the inner side of the lamp shades. That is why the light source appears a gentle blue through the shades, while the inside of the shades is covered in a deep golden shine.
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).
