An adjacent kitchenette creates a place to cool off or grab snacks. As an added bonus, the industrial black shelves that line the back wall have a rack for storing surf boards.
This Austin home has a beige sectional sofa, a contemporary rocking chair and classic windows and doors to show for itself, but it is the vault ceiling that highlight the space and light of this living room. Renovation of existing family room, custom built-in cabinetry for TV, drops down movie screen and books. A new articulated ceiling along with wall panels, a bench and other storage was designed as well. One look and you can see the curved beams which are exposed for us to be able to see the vaulted ceiling. An artistic way of showing off with contemporary finds decorated in this room. The aim was to make a sleek and clean look for this living space which has a great view of the sea - plus point is the floor to ceiling windows with gorgeous black blinds complementing the sofa and the flooring.
We see everyday the work of some of the most brilliant minds, designers and architects, that create out of nothing impressive living spaces and yet, we rarely think about their homes and how do they look like. So here we are, “sneaking” inside the house of a designer, Susan Drover from SAM Design and exploring her “imaginarium”.
The ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked. By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic. The effect can be subtle if you choose a muted shade, or you can brighten a white room with a bold color. If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.
Many small living room ideas revolve around tricking the eye into making the area appear more spacious. Such strategies can transform an area that feels cramped and claustrophobic into one that feels cozy and aesthetically pleasing. Decorate in a way that maximizes light and space, and pay attention to how you use color, shade, scale and weight. It can make quite a difference.
It`s very funny how we usually wander with our minds, imagining all sorts of beautiful places: from spacious luxury homes with breezy patios, to NY lofts with a particular bohemian flair or small compact Scandinavian apartments with a sharp sense of style.
