IMPROVING INTERIOR COLORS – MAKE  SMALL SPACE LOOK  BIGGER 

Posted by on Nov 27, 2015 in Home Improvement, Interior Colors, Interior Design |

When we talk about living spaces, it often seems that the one rule is “the bigger, the better”. However, small rooms, hallways and even bedrooms offer special cosiness.

If the interior is well designed and a lot of attention is paid to every detail, small spaces can be so beautiful that you don’t even notice its size. If you want to make your bedroom, bathroom or any other space in your home visually bigger, you should start by picking the right color theme. Let’s talk about finding the right color for making those small places bigger and better.

Even though for some this kind of interior transformation is small and pretty easy to make, others might find it rather difficult. Many of them are not able to imagine the exact effect they would like to achieve in the interior they are transforming. Or, they simply can’t decide what kind of room would actually satisfy their needs. And there it is! It’s the very first question to ask yourself before buying any wall paint: what kind of room would I feel comfortable in? What am I going to use this room for? You might be planning to decorate your office space, but you’re actually going to spend much more time reading in it, or sewing or just napping on a comfortable chair. In that case, you certainly shouldn’t pick all the cold colors and combine them with metal minimalist chairs.small-room-larger-hero

You should also consider that some of the colors look different in day and night time. For example, some shades of orange can be beautiful when a discreet light of a night lamp shines over it, but in the daytime it might look a bit aggressive and hard to look at. That’s another thing you should be asking before deciding about the small room interior: what time of day will I be spending in this room?

Now, let’s talk about the exact effect you are after. Interior room design could be defined by its lightness and warmness. If you’re having a hard time handling small space and you simply want to make it bigger at any cost, you should go for airy interior. Lots of natural light, lots of light and thin materials, as little furniture as possible will give the impression of bigger space. If you’re the type of person that enjoys cosiness in living spaces, soft blankets and generally a home that feels like real romantic family homes, you should go for warm color themes and interior that says soft and inviting.

After these few steps, you’re prepared to choose actual wall paint colors and make your small room look bigger. Even if it’s obvious that light and cold colors give the impression of openness and a big size, well done interior design can also make spaces look big enough by using some shades of warm colors.

Posted by on Dec 15, 2015 in Classy Way Design |

1.HANG AN INTERIOR CURTAIN 

According to Webb: In the kitchen of the same Atlanta house, a linen curtain runs on a track spanning the room and can be pulled “to conceal the mess of preparation.”

2.REUPHOLSTER FURNITURE WITH OLD CURTAINS 

When it comes to decorating the cottage’s living room, a designer Podge Bune told: “Everything in this room has a story. The easy chair is covered in my old dining room curtains, a Designers Guild fabric they no longer make.” 

3.COVER A WALL WITH PLATES 

There are a lot of cheap plates on eBay; you can start collecting them for your dining room. It can be said that by covering the whole wall with plates you will create the same effect as “one big piece of art.”

4.PAINT AN INEXPENSIVE PIECE OF FURNITURE WHITE 

Designer and homeowner, Zim Loy, of a Kansas City house, claims that “a dining room in is light, bright, and airy and I accomplished that with lots of white paint.” What she has done is buying a beat-up old table that has cost $60 at a sale; it provided a fresh and new look, especially when the base is painted with the high-gloss white.

5.DISPLAY A GREAT COLLECTION ON A DINING ROOM TABLE

Webb claims: “The pieces don’t have to match, but they do have to play together well.” 

6.WALLPAPER YOUR VINYL WINDOW SHADES 

According to a designer and homeowner Loy Zim: “I had a roll of wallpaper in my office that was left over from a photo shoot we did, and I was about to put it in the trash when I thought, ‘No, I can do something with this.” “Then I thought of the vinyl shades in our guest room. So I wallpapered them. You gotta go for it.”

7.MOVE SEATING AWAY FROM THE WALLS 

Designer Betsy Burnham claims that: “Float furniture away from the walls: It creates more intimate seating.” This is what she has done in the living room of her California house. “For a Tony Duquette, William Haines flavor,” the console table separates back-to-back sofas. It is decorated with lamps that are vintage/goddess/figurine.

8.PUT AN ANTIQUE IN THE BATHROOM 

One guest of the Atlanta house said: “feels authentic to the period of the house, but also clean and modern.”

9.DRESS UP HALLWAYS WITH TURKISH RUNNERS 

An interior designer Betsy Burnham buys furniture from the Turkish furniture store called ‘’Rugs & Art’’, pointing out a reading nook inspired by Moroccan. Burnham claims that the vintage carpets “can transform a plain hallway into a decorated space. Also:A really faded, tattered rug is instantly Bohemian.

10.GIVE THE ROOM A CHEERY ACCENT COLOR 

According to a designer Gideon Mendelson, he would add shiny fresh yellow flowers in order to flip a usual dark, blue-and-white color scheme of a certain room.

INTERIOR DESIGN IDEAS – HOW TO DECORATE DINNING AREA 

Posted by on Dec 6, 2015 in Dinning Area |

Although the dining area usually isn’t the central room in a house or apartment, it seems to be the most important space in a home. It’s the area where family gathers every evening and spends precious time together. That’s the reason why it needs to be designed with precision, creativity and love. Family is the most important thing one can have, so let’s see how you can use some interior design ideas to improve the dining area.

Before you start buying new furniture for your dining area, there are some things to think about.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE STYLE. First of all, even if you’re planning to redecorate it completely and change every single thing, be aware of the fact that it shouldn’t be much different from the rest of the house. By that, we mean that it should still be compatible with the style and design of other rooms surrounding it. According to Pasadena interior design firm 27 Diamonds, a modern dining area isn’t going to send the right message if it’s placed next to an old fashion living room.

MAKE IT AS COMFORTABLE POSSIBLE. The second thing you should think about is the color theme that would suit the best. If you’re spending your family time every night dining together, the best decision would be to make it warm and cosy. Although it might seem to be dated, warm colors and natural materials like wood can still make an interior very modern and fully functional. Modern architecture actually uses nature as an inspiration more than ever. The secret is that nature gives serenity, relaxation and softness. All of that matters in a home.

INSPIRATION IS ALL AROUND. When you’re preparing to remodel your dining area, it’s always a good idea to search for some inspiration online. See what colors you like, what styles would make you happy, see what of the things you like you can actually afford. Also, it’s always interesting to see how some of your favorite restaurants got your attention. See what effects designers of their interior were going for and think about how you could apply some of those rules in your own dining area.

MAKE SOME BOLD COMBINATIONS. The modern age brings many innovations considering design, so now it’s possible to combine things which were once considered totally incompatible. It means that it’s totally fine to have four different chairs, or a huge orange pendant hanging over a red table. It’s fine and desired to be creative. On the other hand, if you’re not under an interior decorator’s watch, be sure to copy some innovative combination and leave no room for mistakes. It’s allowed to create some playful visual effects. For example, a casual dining area can be made interesting by adding a colorful, eye catching rug. Wood floor will make colored chairs pop.

Classic table can be combined with wallpapered ceiling. Adding extra natural light and some handmade details will bring all the warmth needed.
