We keep a stack of magazines (fun for me). And I just procured those tic-tac-toe pieces from Target (for us). The “game board” it came with was an afterthought, so I ditched it and made my own game board with black washi tape. More often than not, that coffee table is Hal's craft table too despite having a craft table just her size. It endures a lot. bout that TV. We chose to keep in on the ledge and off to the side (not mounted permanently above the fireplace). It's hard to hide a TV in a minimally designed room but it took our out-of-town friend a couple hours to figure out where the TV was. I'll mark that as a success. Our contractor drilled a hole in the back corner of the bench and covered it with a plastic cord cap. We feed the cords through the hole to the preexisting outlets beneath both sides of the benches. The outlets are covered by the wood, so we look cordless!
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.
The wall-papers, flooring, ceiling, and colors blend into predominant furniture which is the main emphasis in neoclassical style. The furniture is usually Mahogany and wedge with heavy grains accentuated with either paler pallet or stainless steel embellishments. Furniture is characterized by restraint symmetrical designs with motifs utilized for decoration. A strong color is used in moderation to catch the eye instantly. Color like magenta, blues, greens, and yellows are used to just cheer up one corner. Lavish use of gold leaf and silver leaf are entrants into this style. Wooden paneling's, imported wallpapers and modern art paintings give additional opportunities to use color. Wallpapers with muted tones, simple repetitive patterns without any major color contrasts are used. Shades of cream, grays, sage greens, soft pink, muted rose, blues, mustard and ocher golds were popular. White became the hep most color apart from the veneered finishes. Flooring is kept UN-tone to either imported marble or wooden flooring.
