Whether you have a fireplace with stockings, a ornamented Christmas tree, multicolored lighting installation or a creative message on one of the walls, the living room is the focal point of many residences and should set the tone for the entire house.

Shelving looked to be a very plentiful line of work for the designers who were present with creations at Milan Furniture Fair. We have seen so many distorted and completely unexpected shelves that we hardly managed to make a selection. We originally photographed this cool shelving plan but then recognized that the whole living space arrangement is worth sharing. So here it is, in all its creativity. A modern and yet warm atmosphere is generated by the simple and yet novel overall design. The beautiful white couch contrasts with the wooden surrounding furniture. And check out the highly primary table design with decorative wooden detail, some of them placed suddenly outside the table perimeter. Nicely done!

In our yard, we directed my “big dreams” by focusing on one “zone” at a time (see my post on how to design a backyard). See the backyard transformation here. Zeroing in on designing one unusual area can be a way to stretch the budget and resources as well as a way to help focus notice on one project at a time.

Pottery Barn is a design company founded in 1949 in Manhattan and planned on their work reflecting the idea that” home furnishings should be exceptional in comfort, style and quality.” We do not know much about their comfort and quality, but one thing we can say for sure: their furniture looks absolutely amazing! Perhaps it is the vintage touch or the original letters and numbers embedded in the decorations. Or the colors that are not too flashy, nor neutral. And what do you think about the overall arrangements? The flower arrangements really seem to fit in and light up the rooms. Whichever it is, we invite you to take a closer look and pick out those elements that you like the most. In other words, we hope you will find plenty of inspiration in the pictures below.

iPod and iPhone docks come in a myriad of shapes and colors, but this is the first dock that we have seen that actually doubles as a shelf, which is a really smart design.

As a result, in most residences this area is found near the entrance, most of the time on the ground level being used often and offering support for a lot of activities. These are some of the main reasons for which we should pay notice to it and ensure the propper comfort and atmosphere within. Probably the most fundamental thing in the design plan should be identifying the actual role of the space within the home. You should also keep in mind and design the living room for yourself! In the end you will be the one spending the most time in there and it should fit your requirement like a glove, no compromises should be made in this regard.

Hanging artwork: If you have lofty ceilings, artwork placed above the line of television sight viewing is a good idea. Consider making the artwork simple, and more abstract. Artwork that has physical content will make television viewers to concentrate on the artwork. For smaller ceilings, but lengthy walls, consider putting little collections of artwork, paintings, photographs etc… to the side(s) of your television. Whichever you scheme preference, attempt to let the television compliment the area, or be left on its own. For visual interest for wall ascended televisions add wainscoting or build decorative architectural niches into the wall.

Created by Jordi Vayreda, this welcoming residence in tone of gray, green also pink used to be a two extent industrial building. Luckily, it lately went to a complete make-over and now it looks like a vivid and playful crib. It is amazing how adding a little color can completely turn around the way a home feels. This was probably what the designers had in mind when filling this place up with colorful decorating elements such as fluffy pillows on the floor, small rugs and tiny rustic containers. Due to the white background, these items stand out and create a visually pleasant contrast. The living room, dining room also kitchen are linked not only physically, but design-wise also. We like how this home seems to be ornamented by respecting a fun pattern, one that involves color and youthfulness.
