Kittrell. Living Room. May 05th , 2017.
Go for simple designed lamps and shades. Tiffany styles and faceted crystals are a no no. Lamp bases made of plain ceramic or wrought iron and contemporary, spare brass designs work well with the minimalist style. Use recessed fixtures, like cans, for ambient lighting. Ornate chandeliers and fussy shades over faux-candle lights do not enlist the minimalist designs. Let the windows be simple or leave them bare for maximum natural lighting. Various options for the windows could be tab-top curtains on a simple wrought-iron pod, plantation shutters, 2-inch-wide wood blinds and Roman shades. Remove all unwanted clutter from your living room. Abundant pictures on the walls and tabletop tchotchkes should all be removed. They just do not form a part of the minimalism. Instead of small clusters of pictures, a single large picture on each wall would be better. Floral chintz, shelves packed with knick-knacks, and ornate wrought iron just have to be removed from the living room.
What kind of living room furniture should I have? Because living rooms can serve many purposes, you’ll want to be sure to incorporate a variety of different furniture pieces to cover all possible activities. When considering Small living room ideas, start with your space. If your home is generally tight on space, having plenty of shelves, cabinets or drawers will be crucial to accommodating any storage needs. Built-ins are the best way to do this, since they take up less space and are often customized to meet your needs, however they can run on the more expensive side. If built-ins aren’t part of your living room design ideas, start with the big pieces, like an entertainment center or TV stand to house any electronics and accessories, or a bookcase to keep books, picture frames and knickknacks in check. Plenty of living room furniture ideas use pieces in multiple ways, like a desk or table as a craft station or homework spot, and a window seat as a go-to reading or nap station.
Wall Décor. You can cover your walls with beautiful wall hangings to impart character to the living room. In fact, you can make use of your creative abilities and create some homemade wall hangings, which are also non-expensive. Visit your local poster or art shop and pick some aesthetic prints, which you can get framed and use as wall hangings. Framed family photographs can also be hung on the walls. However, do not cover the walls completely, as it will make the room look cumbersome.
Spare the floor coverings and wall treatments. A simple area rug on a hard-surface floor would just be perfect. Paint the walls in one color. Choose a soothing neutral color to get a minimalist look.
Mediterranean Style Hallway. The walls are well painted in Venetian plaster and almost all wood beams are hand-hewn. A beautiful hallway lies to connect family room and the courtyard. This beautiful space build with traditional spanish colonial design. You can see it from the vaults in the ceiling as well as the wrought iron doors and sconces. The floor describe the style very well, a nice combination from travertine and walnut floors.
