Living Room Sunday, July 16th 2017.
A strategically-positioned armchair can be the accent piece your living room needs to feel complete. Consider creating a comfortable reading corner or simply using the armchair to fill an empty corner. Complement it with a large potted plant, a floor lamp or a side table. Benjamin Vandiver offers here some inspiration.
Another beautiful strategy is to take advantage of the home’s original architecture and design. When decorating a living room, for example, one can choose to explore the ceiling beams if there are any or to highlight an arched door or window, just like Wendy Haworth did when designing this elegant living room infused with mid-century style.
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.
