Use White to Freshen Things Up, Mele is a huge proponent of painting things white, especially furniture. “I think white modernizes and freshens,” he says. “People are afraid of their old grandmother's found furniture, but their forms are so fabulous and remain timeless. White just gives furniture a contemporary personality, I think. A fresh youthful spirit.” To strike the right color balance in the home's formal dining room, Mele had the dining chairs bleached white from the original brown. Strike a Color-and-Pattern Compromise, When dialing up the pattern, it's sometimes best to dial down the color to achieve a calmer, less chaotic effect. When designing the home's master bedroom, Mele started with a bold, Matisse-esque pattern and made his color choices, or lack thereof, from there. “I just wanted to use that pattern everywhere and not break it up with different colors or patterns,” he says. To that end he refrained from introducing any of the vibrant colors he used on the home's ground floor. “I wanted it to feel a little calmer, quieter, even though it's not a calm, quiet fabric.
When design meets both form and function, it feels like money well spent. I mentioned in the previous post that we had a major heating issue in the house last winter. Upstairs was extremely hot at night. (It absorbed all the sun from the day and the rise of the heat from below). But the downstairs was an ice chest throughout the day. We have one system for the house, so when we'd heat the downstairs, it'd make upstairs perfect for hot yoga. We now use the fireplace as a heater to the first floor, and it's working beautifully. We've barely had to run our heater this fall. So here's our cozy modern living room. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad we waited a year plus to add the fireplace. It took us that long to get to know the room and the house.
Pick Elements in Warm Colours, The importance of room colour is often underestimated, but the effects of colour are subtle and significant, physical and psychological. For a quieter ambiance, pick colours are not exceptionally bright. The best colours scheme for any cozy room is the one featuring warm colours. Yellow, orange and different shades of beige and brown create a calm and welcoming space in your dream home. Add Rustic Details, The rustic decor style is truly warm and inviting that's why you should have at least one rustic element in your home. It can be a bench, a chair, a cabinet, or anything that has that country chic feeling. Also including a touch of leather can warm up an entire space. By adding greenery like potted plants and flower bouquets, which can also prevent a warm room from being too stuffy and brighten designing in the winter months. Small things like books or funny plush toys in the right place can give you a nice feeling of calm, but attention to detail can do wonders when having people over. Small things like a glass bedside carafe in their bedroom and the few copies of exciting magazines on the table give a little character and a sense of homeyness to a room.
