The pitched roof in this stylish home from visualizer Vizuall gives the living room a bit of height. Coupled with the low, angular sofa and modern sling chairs, the contrast creates visual interest while serving its practical purpose. Speaking of creative roofs and ceilings, the exposed brick ceiling in this living room from the same visualizer is so stunning that it's easy to get lost in it. It stands again in contrast to the simplicity and clean lines of the neutral colored furnishings.
All the walls are sunny yellow, the shelving unit is bold blue, and there are some cream-colored cupboards. The china collection on the shelves becomes a part of decor, and there's a rustic vintage dining table of wood. The kitchen countertop is clad with white marble, and the lamps are vintage brass ones. There's a vintage black hearth and a white tile backsplash around it with some shelves. The space is made cozier with a wooden dresser, curtains and a vintage upholstered chair with carved legs.
First built as a functional furniture item, the canopy bed became the canvas for inspiring carvings and design interpretations in different upscale residences. From four poster beds with curtains that kept warmth in and noise out to ornate canopy beds of the wealthy, this fairly simple bed design has seen a revival in contemporary interior design. Furthermore, the canopy bed is certainly no longer a luxury item for the wealthy, you can actually find some stylish and affordable canopy beds here on walmart.com (we were surprised with quality of their selection!).
Because dark colors can make a room feel more closed in than welcoming, they only work in a living room like this that has plenty of natural light. The contrast in the wood flooring helps, too. For a creative answer to the standard sofa, this urban living room uses upholstered platforms and movable pillows that allow whoever is sitting to create their own comfortable posture on the platforms or the floor. On the other end of the spectrum we have this light wood and white living room. It's on the small side but plenty big for a cozy night at home.
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
The next step is to determine how much work, cost and house renovating it will take to convert your attic into a master bedroom. For older houses, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning will have to be run to the attic and possibly plumbing pipes. For many home owners, the expense of having to run new services to the attic is minimal in comparison to the benefit of added space and functionality. Before you get started, ask a contractor or a home improvement professional to assist you in estimating the costs. Remember return on investment (ROI) could bring you back more money than you invested into the initial conversion.
