To give the space a character and customize it more, the owner placed a vintage suitcase on a stand as a storage piece and hung a basket for towels. This is really a cute idea to repurpose a couple of old objects and make your space more personal.
Sleep is a beautiful thing. In the warmth and comfort of your own bed, sleep can help you stay healthy, improve mental dexterity and recharge for whatever tomorrow holds. While finding your perfect mattress is essential to a good night's rest, it's all for naught without a great pillow to rest your head.
There's nothing quite as refreshing as a good shower, whether you're after an early morning wakeup, a midday rejuvenation, or a hot blast to relax the muscles after a long tiring day; standing under that strong stream of droplets just takes some beating. So with that in mind, don't our beloved shower rooms deserve an extra special piece of our attention? Of course they do. Forget about the standard meager sized shower heads that dribble out an apologetic and spluttering jet, and the bog-standard off-the-rack cubicles that imprison you in their boring surrounds. We are talking about the world of wonderful waterfall shower heads that drench us in a soothing downpour, open plan settings that are inspired by nature, and just plain gorgeous shower room designs.
There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
The tricky thing about living room design is that it needs to suit all your own personal quirks while also being welcoming to friends and family. In the modern trend of open floor plans, the living room also has to mesh well with the surrounding rooms while still managing to set itself apart. Overall, living room is much more than a sofa and a television: it's a place where you should feel safe and happy. Where a nap is easy and sometimes getting up is a little hard. Each of these 20 living rooms has its own distinct personality, but all manage to create an amazing space where anyone would be lucky to kick up her feet and spend a few hours.
The living room is spacious and includes not only a living space but also a dining one and a playroom for the kids. Scandinavian style supposes lots of light and light shades, so the walls were painted white, and the original oak floor was restored. It was sanded, painted and refinished, so the wood grain was still visible. The original large window was also restored to flood the room with light. The fireplace divided the space into two parts: a living room and a dining room.
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
Be careful with blues: they can refresh the room décor or make it tasteless if you take a wrong shade. Spruce up a calm beige interior with a teal accent wall, pillows and accessories, and you'll refresh it. Combine rich brown and navy touches for a bold room with a moody atmosphere. Make a room more vivacious with cool blue draperies and a rug, even the most peaceful brown room will look livelier. If you are looking for luxurious combos, choose navy or dazzling blue and tan leather furniture and ocher wooden pieces, you are sure to impress everyone.
First built as a functional furniture item, the canopy bed became the canvas for inspiring carvings and design interpretations in different upscale residences. From four poster beds with curtains that kept warmth in and noise out to ornate canopy beds of the wealthy, this fairly simple bed design has seen a revival in contemporary interior design. Furthermore, the canopy bed is certainly no longer a luxury item for the wealthy, you can actually find some stylish and affordable canopy beds here on walmart.com (we were surprised with quality of their selection!).
The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it's to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they'll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both.
