The history of houses as we know them today began back in prehistoric days. Back then people used to live in trees. They then moved into caves and later they started building shelters. With time, they began to create more elaborate designs and to make larger and stronger houses for their families. By the 1500s we already had houses that were 3 or 4-stories high.
Furniture taken out of context can be misleading – sure, it looks great in the pictures but what will it do for (or to) an actual living space in a real room of your home? These sizable shelving units are as much about making space as they are about storing books and other odds and ends. Most importantly, they are shown in creative interior design contexts rathre than posed against blank white backgrounds.
As the current dictates, a modern living room is characterized by simplicity and minimalism. The furniture has clean lines and there are no unnecessary details or decorations. The accent falls on practicality, functionality and the ability to save space and create an airy and spacious decor. Of course, they can also feature accent elements that are characteristic to other styles. In this case they are used as focal point and they don’t define the living room as a whole.
Choosing a color theme for the living room is one of the first steps when redecorating. Even though gray is not technically a color it s a great choice for basically everything. It is also a very fashionable tone these days. There are lots of different hues of grey as well and you can play with that when decorating your home.
You can also use blue for the rug or carpet and for other items as well such as the lamps, the decorative pillows or even the furniture itself. Blue is a color that looks absolutely wonderful when combined with brown and beige. The atmosphere becomes so inviting and calm that you’ll want to spend the whole day in the living room.
