Living Room Sunday, July 16th 2017.
The ceiling is often overlooked. We focus so much on the furniture and the wall décor that we forget about this large surface which can easily become a focal point for the living room. There are numerous ways in which to make the most of a ceiling either by using sculptural molding, bold colors, wallpaper or by playing with contrasts.
Modern and contemporary living rooms often choose to explore the beauty of raw materials and include concrete walls and floors mixed with warm wood elements for a balanced and welcoming ambiance throughout. They also often feature bold focal points similar to these abstract art pieces in this case.
On the other hand, when the goal is a serene and simplistic décor, it’s good to eliminate any unnecessary details and to emphasize the basics. Kathleen Clements managed to do that here by placing a light gray sofa opposite to the fireplace and defining the seating area with a striped area rug. Exposed brick or stone walls are known for their ability to make living room look exquisite. Designer Karen Akers chose to paint the fireplace wall white which concealed its natural color but exposed its textured and imperfect structure.
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.
