Let’s say you’re not set on completely hiding your television. Try including the TV in a large shelving unit that displays a range of stylish items. Why not let it become a part of the decor?
Don’t forget that clear furnishings create the illusion of space. The living room below is obviously not a small interior, but a glass coffee table enhances the open feel created by floor-to-ceiling windows.
Designed by Louise Campbell for lighting company Louis Poulsen, the Collage pendant lamp is feminine by definition. The light source itself is concealed and shines diffusely through 3 layers made from laser cut acrylic layers. The vine and strand shaped cutouts make up an elegant and highly decorative pattern and filter a diffuse glow through and also allow for indirect light on the ceiling. It is a beautiful and versatile lamp, whether pink and trendy in the hotlips version, funky in the juicy orange version, ethereal and minimal in snow white, fresh and vivid in lemon yellow or timelessly elegant in the smoke-tinted version.
Looking for height as well as a clear separation of spaces? Go with a divider screen, such as a frosted Plexiglass selection that lets in the light while doing its job.
Saying that what you’re about to see is a wonderfully designed living room, is nothing but an understatement. This is so alluring! This is spectacular, it’s gorgeous. Mario Testino is a great photographer, but it looks like he has great taste when it comes to interior design as his living room has attracted everyone’s attention with its artistic look and the fact that everything is placed right where it should be placed.
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.
Or just hide the television in the cabinets across from the couch, as shown in the space below. Do you see the TV? That’s the point!
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.
