Living Room / June 30, 2018 / Gaetane Noemi.
In terms of living room ideas, UK homes often seek to use traditional design motifs, particularly in period homes that wouldn't look quite right with anything else. There's a real time and a place for classic and sophisticated recognisable tropes of interior design and older homes with a little history are most definitely the right location.
Combining different elements – wood, stone, glass, metal, leather – together with a variety of surfaces, from smooth and shiny to rough and nubbly, is easy to achieve. Layering different fabrics is a great way to bring texture to the fore – provided patterns are all within the same colour family, it will work.
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.
Great for a living room that is perhaps an unusual shape or unfortunately sized, an eclectic design ethos can be wonderfully adaptable, exciting and eye-catching, not to mention a fabulous way to express your true self.
