Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 17:54:17 PM
This alcove makes a great reading spot, as it’s next to the fire for warmth and the window for light. A round rattan chair and metallic floor lamp make stylish additions to the dark blue paint. The owners wrapped an existing shelf in marble-look vinyl to get the look at a fraction of the price of the real thing. A white-gloss storage unit houses the router, DVD player and so on, to keep unsightly wires and boxes out of the way, while providing a handy shelf to display prettier bits and pieces.
Get cosy, whether it’s a bijou country cottage or a studio flat, it can be tricky to create a relaxing bolt hole when your front door opens straight into your living room. Take the emphasis away from the entrance by creating a focal point with thoughtfully arranged seating. Here, a neat two-seater and comfy armchair have been placed at a 90-degree angle to a slim side table and lamp. A cool neutral palette works beautifully with the rustic plasterwork and the roller blind makes the most of a recessed window to add extra square inches to the room.
Make use of an awkward space, in a small living room, every piece of furniture has to earn its keep so it’s a great excuse to make a bold statement with striking modern chairs. These acid yellow beauties don’t overwhelm the space due to their fine steel frames, which allow you to see underneath and through them to make the room feel bigger. Continue the graphic theme with a round black table, monochrome rug and minimal floor lamp.
