Living Room / June 23, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
At first glance, this elegant setting showcasing the Caracole collection from Bloomingdale’s Home Dubai, appears purely symmetrical, thanks to the curved seating, wall panelling and windows, but look closely, and there are elements that make it far more asymmetrical: the coffee table duo is off centre, while a throw on one chair is balanced by the plant on the cabinet.
With such a large window here, the living room itself almost plays second fiddle to the view, which works terrifically well. Understated colours and minimal furniture is elegantly lit by the natural light that pours in and helps to create a space that is really inspired by the natural world outside.
Simple can be better, as this very simple and unfussy space proves. A stripped feature wall, combined with an elegant sofa and neutral rug looks great and definitely keeps the functionality of the room at the forefront.
Practicalities must be considered, of course, and furnishings chosen to suit our lifestyle, but there’s more to it than that: as any interior designer will tell you, a great scheme depends on principles that might not be immediately obvious, but which, when successfully employed, make a world of difference not only to the look of a room, but to the way it makes you feel in it.
