Not everyone has the luxury of an enormous shower room like the one pictured here, but that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from its striking décor. Large slate gray tiles look great even in a small room, as large tiles generally increase the look of space in confined quarters. In this example, striking color is washed over the top of the sombre ceramics in the form of bright blue LED lighting. LED lights are great for use in bathrooms, and programmable sets will even allow you to change their color to suit your mood or the time of day.
Comparing mattresses can feel like comparing apples to oranges, since everyone has a finely tuned preference for what sends them off to snoozeville. Some want to sleep like Aslan on the stone table in Narnia; others prefer to feel like they're sinking in a vat of quicksand.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
Admittedly this shower head is of minuscule proportions, but just look at how serene it's sun dappled surroundings are. Another beautiful open air bathing area–though you had better be good at stepping stones if you forget your flip-flops, journeying in and out of the tub over that harsh pebble floor could be painful!
The first kitchen uses cool beige tones and recessed lighting to create a sense of calm. This kitchen really brightens things up with open cabinets of sunny yellow for a distinctly modern vibe. The reddish orange accents in this kitchen, and the creative sunken dining table, give the kitchen a really retro feel. Another neutral option lets the practical elements of the kitchen itself all but disappear, highlighting beautiful views and open windows.
An LED light is a closet necessity for many reasons. The quality of light this battery-powered fixture emits is excellent, replicating bright daylight. Your space will look bigger, clothing colors will read true and you'll be able to more easily see what's in your closet.
This ultra modern white kitchen has a multi-level island and bar on painted concrete floors. The mini cabinets above the sink house glassware behind sliding doors. This step-down kitchen sits in a multi-level duplex in the Netherlands. The house is brightened with a sunlight above the all-white kitchen which is central in this home. Geometric shapes command attention. This white kitchen shares a space with the living area and adds a pop of grey with the contemporary circle back chairs.
A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I'd like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined; the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken.
