We always advice our readers to think beyond the confines of the square footage of their home and to harness all that additional space which those walls have to offer. Wall-mounted décor not only frees up precious foot space, but these cool floating cabinets, shelves and modular units also give the living room a more cheerful, breezy ambiance. They undoubtedly cut back on visual clutter and you can even use them to introduce new patterns, textures and sculptural features. Just remember though that you might not want to go berserk with wall-mounted modular units in smaller living rooms as they can easily seem overbearing when done wrong.
If you have noticed it already, then wooden décor is on a grand comeback in recent months. It does not matter if your living room has a contemporary vibe or a cozy rustic appeal; décor in wood seems to find space in almost every living room these days. It is the silhouette of the décor that determines its style and an all-wood entertainment center with a cool TV stand, additional wooden cabinets and wall-mounted floating shelves can feel as much at home in a modern living room as it does in one with traditional flair. Just browse through the classic and yet timeless choices from the likes of ercol or Hartmann and you will not be disappointed.
The feeling that beige captures so well is one of comfort and security that we all yearn for within our homes. Emphasise that feeling by adding some wooden pieces to your neutral living room. A relaxing atmosphere by the fireplace calls for a color palette that knows how to channel tranquility. You could hardly find a better choice than beige. There are plenty of beige hues to play with, from soft cream to dark sand. You can easily layer them within one room and awaken the traditional ambiance. Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room’s incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames.
The Tibetan knot is an endless one, without beginning or end. It is an prehistoric motif found not only in Tibet but Mongolia and China. It symbolises the eternal interweaving of the Spiritual Path. Designer based his remarkable new collection on the Tibetan knot. His three pieces (two chairs and a light) entitled Art, Sky and Sun show his creative integrated approach. He said, “I finally see the first true union between sculpture with furniture and lighting.”
