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.
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.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
The eccentric German lamp designer is known for his bold and delicate designs and artistic improvisations.
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?

Are you living in a small apartment, then you probably have space issues and you’re trying to find ways of making your living space seem larger. And while your bathroom and bedroom are usually the ones where you’d like to expand, it looks like no one would mind their living room to, at least, look bigger. Here are four tricks to a more spacious living room.
Designed by Francesco Giannattasio for the company Lumen Center Italia, this delicate and feminine lamp is not ridiculously expensive and easily finds its place in a modern, a minimalist or a vintage-inspired living room that is defined by one condition: the love of detail.
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.
