Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 18:04:41 PM
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.
The fireplace is a natural focal point, while the stripey rug and cream pouffe add an exotic vibe to the scheme. A shelf along the front of the fireplace is great for adding colourful trinkets. Plenty of cushions and throws, plus individual touches such as the brass wall light, add character to the space. The owners are really happy with their room. ‘It looks much more interesting than before,’ they say. ‘And if we ever get tired of the feature wall, we can just paint over it – but that won’t be for a while.
Reach for the sky, take that décor up high when floor space is limited. Here, a small corner of a brilliant white room has been transformed with a column of geometric pattern that pulls the eye upwards to make the most of a high ceiling. The pattern is echoed at the window in a sheer voile, which allows the natural light to filter in for a clean and bright effect. The neat base of a marble floor lamp negates the need for a side table while providing great task lighting for when the sun sets.
