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 known as “the soccer room,” which after all was as a result of it was an enormous empty house the place my husband, Daniel, arrange a big soccer aim in order that he may play soccer at any second! It was very cool for him and really mortifying for me. So final 12 months we determined it was time to maneuver the soccer to the basement and furnish the room. I’m so completely satisfied with the transformation. (Scroll right down to the tip of the submit for the listing of the place I acquired furnishings, lamps, curtains, and so forth.)
Transitional Model Residing Room
My dwelling type is transitional, a mix of conventional and modern (trendy). I’m drawn to all issues mild and vibrant, 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 a whole lot of the trendy design developments (mid-century clear strains, white sofas, impartial shade schemes, a number of woven textures), I finally need my decor to really feel timeless. So I weave conventional, classic items (assume mahogany finish tables, vintage-looking rugs) into that modern aesthetic as a result of they a.) by no means exit of fashion, and b.) add richness and character (in any other case, an all-modern look can really feel a bit chilly and flat).
