Katherina Kolb. Living Room. August 23rd , 2017.

A patchwork of blue panels that line a comfy nook on the side of this wave creation. This built-in sitting area looks like a great place to crash after a long day in the sun. To top off the space, the design team included a pool table and punching bag for boxing practice.
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.

The teenager that lives in this South African home has an entertainment room that would make Tony Hawk proud. Inhouse Brand Architects outfitted the space with a concrete skate bowl, inspired by a skate park in London, according to Visi Magazine. The design team amped up the wow factor with custom artwork by street artist Jack Fox covering the walls.
