Sara Castell. Living Room. August 27th , 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.
Take a look at your living room and measure your space to see how much room you have for a small modern sectional. With so many options available, you’re bound to find one that works perfectly for your home.
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.
A pop of green complements an array of design styles, while floral arrangements add a more feminine tone. Tall grasses are becoming increasingly popular as a relatively neutral and delicate plant that adds eye-catching height.
Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined.
