Living Room Sunday, July 16th 2017.
Kara Mann made sure that this living room is both casual and elegant. This is space where one can feel comfortable, being surrounded by light colors, comfortable furniture and a traditional fireplace. The design also integrates elements such as two flexible and sleek floor lamps and a combination of side tables which give the space a subtle vintage-industrial charm.
A living room can be expanded by being linked to an adjacent balcony, provided that space is protected and not open. The wall between them can be removed, allowing light to freely flow through and adding more floor space. That strategy can work for a small living room like this one. By exposing this living room to the outdoors and minimizing the barriers between the spaces, this area became a lot brighter and feels a lot more spacious, even though the two sofas framing the coffee table take up most of its floor space.
It’s common for living rooms to include staircases leading to a loft space of a different level. When the living room is large and spacious, integrating a sculptural staircase in its design is not a problem. However, when the space is small, other strategies must be found. Interior designer Lorenzo Castillo chose a compact spiral staircase for this project, a wise and practical idea.
The Vidpusk story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Alouria Mackenzie launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Vidpusk has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
