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.
Lighting, We often neglect the magical effects light can have on a room. So what is it about lighting that can make a place more inviting than the next? It may seem strange, but with just a few fixtures in the right place, a room can appear bigger, taller, longer, or even cozier. It's especially important to have multiple light sources in a living room - brighter ones for larger gatherings, smaller ones for more intimate gatherings or a night in. Table lamps can bring lighting down to a human level and make a room seem cozier. So consider placing several table lamps around the room for a more intimate atmosphere. Another easy trick is to switch 'cool' toned light bulbs for 'warm' tone ones. It's a tiny investment, minimal work, nearly instant cozification.
A lot has been talked about contemporary. A lot of designers have worked around contemporary and created excellent designs but the sudden change in designs reflected in latest Interior Designs exhibitions across the world makes us wonder what next? After studying exhibits in Asian countries and the European continent, there is definitely a common thread; Contemporary blending with classical to form neoclassical as the new design ventures. With the interior clearly demarcated into either ethnic or contemporary, neoclassical interior decor offers a blend. Taking the graceful curves of Rococo and blending it with straight lines of Georgian and creating your own style makes the neoclassical style unique in itself. The line and form take precedence over color in neoclassical. It is the blending of shapes which is the most important element.
