Living Room / March 2, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
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.
Real wood flooring, exposed bricks, interior wood wall cladding and a real fire or stove will make for a gorgeous room that is undeniably connected to nature and the outside world, which is what rustic aesthetics are all about. You could definitely look to include some wools, felt and leather too.
Now this living room is very clever! Take a quick glance and it looks colourful and fun, but really focus in and you see that the main hue is actually plain white! Thanks to a few bright touches, the entire vibe has been transformed into a more kaleidoscopic feel, but not in a cloying or over the top way.
A room will feel more comfortable and inviting if it has a focal point, whether that’s an architectural feature, a fantastic view, an arresting piece of furniture, or artwork. The idea is that it draws the eye – it should be the first thing that’s noticed on entering a room - and if possible, furnishings should be arranged around it.
