With summer here most of our days are spent on the pool deck, patio, or any other outdoor space that we can find. It is the time to shed layers of extra clothing and to embrace the warmth out there; a luxury for people in some parts of the world that is fleeting. Yet, there are ways in which you can still enjoy that fuzzy, warm feeling each morning (or even afternoon) all year long by turning towards the sunroom. Often, homeowners feel that a dedicated sunroom needs lot of space and that is definitely not always true. Everything from a long corridor with glass walls to a corner in the living room can be easily turned into your very own ‘sunroom’.
This open and bright living room looks free and airy! If you leave all the windows open and let the wind in it might feel like you are standing on a windy beach, surrounded by the sea, whose color is so beautifully represented by the blue furniture and pillows!
The beach has a magical atmosphere that instantly relaxes us and makes us happy. Maybe it’s the wind, maybe it’s the sun or the smell of the sea … if only we could bring these elements into our home! The next best thing to actually being at the beach, soaking it all in, is turning your living space into a coastal fairytale! If you are yearning for the beach, these coastal living rooms will offer some much-needed inspiration!
Big full-size windows will allow the sunlight to illuminate your living room and make every day feel like the peak of summertime, even if you don’t have a view of the ocean. The vast and spacious room is a comfortable and welcoming space for the entire family to relax in!
In the design world, having ‘more of the same’ generally does not work all too well as a decorating approach. This is truer in case of color. Filling up a room with the same color is considered both ungainly and bland. It is often the contrast between three or more colors that gives a room its uniqueness and personality. Yet, for those who are really set on using largely one color to shape their living room, there are still plenty of exciting options around! Monochromatic living rooms are once again trendy and as is the case in most other rooms, it is neutrals that hold sway here.
When it comes down to making your living room look bright and fresh, don’t forget about the importance of the curtains that you choose. They can either make or break the room, so choose wisely! If you are wishing for a refreshed, pastel look that will help your living room reach its potential, mint curtains are the latest trend!
