Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 18:04:46 PM
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.
Pare it back with wood, think about alternatives to traditional living room furniture, such as the three-piece suite. It’s still possible to have a cosy area for relaxing and reading with less space-greedy furnishings. Swap an upholstered armchair for a wooden rocker with cushions; and bookcases for slimline ladder-style shelving. Wash walls and accessorise with subtle colour.
Spotting a painted wall online that used lots of different shades of paint and big triangular shapes, the owners were keen to replicate the look. ‘We decided on different shapes of white, grey and peachy-pink for something unusual,’ they say.
