Katherina Kolb. Living Room. August 30th , 2017.
London-based designer Manuel Teicu recently sent us these photos of a project he recently completed in Brasov, Romania. The owners of the home wanted a warm and cozy lounge space with an eclectic vibe that would suit their young family well. Teicu turned their simple garage into their fantasy room.
At the core of it all, a custom yellow sofa that was developed on site adds brightness and storage. The matching ottoman can be turned into a small coffee table. The white chimney with its powerful rustic character adds to the eclectic atmosphere. During the day, natural lighting floods the space through a traditional window that’s painted blue.
Want to show off your travel bucket list, or keep a reminder of your hometown in a new city? These custom-made maps are available as murals or posters, giving you the option of traveling the world in your living room or taking a little piece of home wherever you go.
The first piece that comes to mind when furnishing a living room is generally a sofa. But without a coffee table, the room — no matter how beautiful — looks incomplete. Metaphorically, think of your sofa as a great outfit and your coffee table as the perfect pair of shoes to go with it.
Embrace the seasons, and not just the ones at the end of the year. Add fresh flowers in the spring, tall grasses or bowls of slow-ripening fruit in the summer, or vases of cranberries as fall approaches to keep your mantel current. While mantel decorating creates an important focal point in a living room, it’s also one of the easiest things to change out — whether seasonally or with the trends. A good way to keep yourself from going into design despair is to collect several pieces to use together for a fresh look.
