We’ve been in our home for 4 years now, and for 3 of these years, the entrance room of our home—the formal lounge, the very first thing you see from the entrance door—was lovingly referred to as “the soccer room,” which after all was as a result of it was an enormous empty area the place my husband, Daniel, arrange a big soccer purpose in order that he might play soccer at any second! It was very cool for him and really mortifying for me. So final yr we determined it was time to maneuver the soccer to the basement and furnish the room. I’m so blissful with the transformation. (Scroll all the way down to the tip of the publish for the record of the place I received furnishings, lamps, curtains, and so forth.)
Transitional Type Residing Room
My house fashion is transitional, a mix of conventional and up to date (fashionable). I’m drawn to all issues mild and brilliant, neutrals, the grounding high quality of heat wooden tones and pure woven parts like jute, wicker, and rattan. I like the colour blue. And whereas I get pleasure from numerous the trendy design tendencies (mid-century clear traces, white sofas, impartial colour schemes, a lot of woven textures), I in the end need my decor to really feel timeless. So I weave conventional, classic items (assume mahogany finish tables, vintage-looking rugs) into that up to date aesthetic as a result of they a.) by no means exit of favor, and b.) add richness and character (in any other case, an all-modern look can really feel a little bit chilly and flat).
