[&#8230;] <p>Feast your eyes on these three juicy orange and blue home interiors, and see the visual impact that a complementary colour scheme can bring. These designs show how to achieve a good balance with hues that sit opposite on the colour wheel &#8211; without becoming too strong a palette that could completely overwhelm a space. This collection of room ideas includes orange sofas for your living room, blue kitchen ideas, a blue bathroom, bright accent chairs, colour pop scatter cushions, modern dining sets, and colourful feature walls that would brighten up just about any part of the home. Smooth neutral decor bridges the gap between the stronger shades, whilst beautiful accent pieces add polish.</p> <p><a target="_blank" href="http://www.home-designing.com/interior-design-using-orange-blue-tips-to-help-you-decorate-using-complementary-colors"><img class="attachment-thumbnail" width="600" height="480" src="http://cdn.home-designing.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/modern-sofa-600x480.jpg" /></a><br />Designer: <a href="http://zrobym.by">Zrobym</a>&nbsp;&nbsp; Visualizer: <a href="http://zrobym.by">Zrobym</a>&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /><br />A <a href="http://www.home-designing.com/20-modern-sofas-to-go-with-any-type-of-decor" title="20 Modern Sofas To Go With Any Type Of Decor">modern sofa</a> stands wrapped in a bold orange tone in the centre of our first complementary colour living space.

Now the couple are living the dream &#8212; their 360-square-foot <a href="https://www.zeenafontanilla.com/">tiny house</a> is parked on a wide stretch of land on their native island, along with their young son, Maverick. The picture looks pretty perfect now, but it wasn&#8217;t an easy (or quick) road to this dream realized.</p> <p>The couple, who works for a family <a href="https://www.zoebuilders.com/">residential construction company</a> &#8212; Shane works in the field and Zeena works in the office &#8212; kickstarted the process in April 2015. This was after they were engaged and just eight months before their wedding date. &#8220;Binge-watching <em>Tiny House Nation</em> on HGTV helped us hone in our ideal design,&#8221; Zeena shares. &#8220;It took us two years to complete with only nights and weekends to work on the house.&#8221; This project was completed by Zeena, Shane, and Shane&#8217;s father. &#8220;My husband grew up in a family of builders so he always had the dream to build his own home,&#8221; Zeena begins. &#8220;I don&#8217;t think he imagined it to be this small, but I think this was the perfect size for our first build together. This project was the best premarital counseling we could&#8217;ve asked for. Prior to starting our project I knew many joint decisions would need to be made. &#8216;Many&#8217; was an understatement, try one billion decisions needed to be made. Let&#8217;s just say our communication skills are top notch. One exercise that is extremely helpful in any miscommunication is choosing a number between 1-10 displaying how much this matter means to you. You quickly realize which person this matter means the most to, which diffuses the argument quite fast.&#8221;</p> <p>Once the hard work was behind them and the couple moved in (now with 19-month-old son, Maverick), a whole new set of challenges presented themselves to the family. &#8220;Unlearning what &#8216;normal home life&#8217; means was a challenge we faced in our first six months in the tiny house,&#8221; Zeena reveals. &#8220;My husband and I became off-grid dwellers in our mid- to late-twenties with no prior experience. We went from never questioning electricity use at night to thinking twice about turning on a switch. Even though we had our battery storage customized to our electrical output plus some, it felt scary to trust a system we didn’t quite understand.&#8221;</p> <p>Setbacks and learning curves aside, they have gained a wealth of knowledge, and have much to be thankful for, including, &#8220;The financial freedom it&#8217;s given us in such an expensive state,&#8221; Zeena notes. &#8220;We spent $45,000 to build our home when &#8216;normal&#8217; homes on Maui cost around $400,000+.&#8221; The home was built and then driven to and parked on less than .25 acres of pasture land, which the Fontanillas rent from a family friend.</p> <p>What quickly connected the couple over that first blind date &#8212; their &#8220;mutual love for exploring the many ecosystems Maui has to offer&#8221; (&#8220;and the fact that we both LOVE Mexican food,&#8221; Zeena adds) &#8212; ended up becoming a full-circle theme for Zeena and Shane as they find themselves navigating life truly off the grid. Their shared devotion for their home, their family, and the beauty that surrounds them is so evident, it&#8217;s definitely not lost on others who set foot in their home.</p> <p>&#8220;Many people have confirmed this when they&#8217;ve visited our home but I feel a wave of peace each time I walk through the door,&#8221; Zeena shares. &#8220;We are surrounded by pasture land with grazing animals and a cool breeze that comes off the mountains. The 13-foot ceilings you experience as you first walk into the house add to that peaceful, light, airy feeling.&#8221; Scroll down to see what it&#8217;s like to live tiny on the island of Maui. &#8212;<a href="https://www.instagram.com/kellikehler/?hl=en"><em>Kelli</em></a></p> <p><em>Photography by <a href="https://www.stephaniebetsill.com/">Stephanie Betsill</a> </em></p> <p><em>Image above: Zeena shares a favorite memory from her home, &#8220;Our first night sleeping in our home [was] Christmas Eve. This was before we had running water and electricity &#8212; three weeks prior to us actually moving in. We filled up our car with pillows and blankets to sleep on the only piece of furniture in the house, our pull-out couch. It was so exciting to camp out in our soon-to-be home that we worked so hard for.&#8221; And another story: &#8220;Our little 360-square-foot oasis [is] built on a 26-foot goose-neck trailer. The morning we planned to move the house [by driving it to this spot], we woke up before light out with the intention of getting the house on the road right at sunrise (because less cars on the road meant an easier move, right?!).

Two or three years later, when we started the second phase, we were a little more confident in the execution. It definitely shows the growth of our office, and allowed us to test different ideas.”</p> <div class="c-float-right c-float-hang"> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/ReYNWpfaFUtZh0LoMo44unX_1Go=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/15980298/House_Calls_Compton_Kuball_SanMiguel_bathroom.jpg"> <figcaption>The architects dubbed the guest bathroom the “Marshmallow” for its curved stucco-and-plaster walls.

The mirror is custom, designed by Dash Marshall and fabricated by <a class="ql-link" href="http://www.ormondeconstruction.com/" target="_blank">Ormonde Construction</a>. </figcaption> </figure> </div> <p id="racpkg">The renovation is full of thoughtful details, many of which feel as though they’ve been in the house the whole time, and others that give the interiors a revelatory refresh. Dash Marshall connected the sightline between the entry and kitchen island by installing a custom walnut column in homage to the family’s farming history. Walnut bumpers, installed on stairway bannisters and corners, offer a bit of warmth; they also help mitigate damage to plaster in high-traffic areas.</p> <p id="Zv0sxN">In addition to the “Super Pantry,” another crucial element of the interior design is the main-floor guest bathroom, dubbed the Marshmallow because of its curved stucco-and-plaster walls. With an ouroboros-like circulation—sink, vanity, shower, toilet—someone using the Marshmallow moves through each function while being intrigued to keep turning the corner. The bathroom is tucked underneath the home’s second floor, which is an open-plan level in which the family can gather, and that includes a full bath. </p> <p id="Cc0WKN">Both the Marshmallow and the supports beneath the staircase reference the whimsical designs of John Hejduk, whose “little creatures are a constant inspiration for us,” says Boyer.</p> <div class="c-wide-block"><div class="c-image-grid"> <div class="c-image-grid__item"> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/vxFiaIWNqif0j2LMv64SjP4fy88=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/15980305/House_Calls_Compton_Kuball_SanMiguel_bathroom_detail.jpg"> <figcaption>The master bathroom features curved wooden storage and custom leather pulls.</figcaption> </figure> </div> <div class="c-image-grid__item"> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/JTZ-mBZ05-Ph8rlunhYMaV0A-sE=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/15980306/House_Calls_Compton_Kuball_SanMiguel_bathroom_detail_1.jpg"> <figcaption>A seating nook in the master bathroom.</figcaption> </figure> </div> </div></div> <p id="t4YPG8">“We’re super nerdy architects at heart, but we try to hide our own internal fascinations inside a bigger story that you don’t need to be an architect to appreciate,” he adds.</p> <p id="TTo3gN">The master bathroom is dashing, with curved, wooden storage and a seating nook. There is just a small stationary mirror on an island in the center of the room, which also houses a hatch for toiletries. The entry from the bedroom was relocated from its original position off to the left to create an easy transition both physically and visually.</p> <p id="ufIyky">“These small alignments were made throughout the house—moving doorways and passageways—here and there to create views at the end of wherever you’re walking,” Boyer explains.</p> <div class="c-wide-block"> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/q9shkEGwETDas1UMuQaz-J26x-8=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/15980307/House_Calls_Compton_Kuball_SanMiguel_architecture_detail.jpg"> <figcaption>“The materiality of the [original] ceiling against the white walls is part of what makes the Mission reference work for us,” says Boyer.</figcaption> </figure> </div> <div class="c-float-right c-float-hang"> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/QdaF4KAG3mQ77IaCmnmD8SDlGWk=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/15980309/House_Calls_Compton_Kuball_SanMiguel_staircase_detail.jpg"> <figcaption>Dash Marshall designed the walnut bumper seen here to complement the white walls and mitigate damage to high-traffic areas.</figcaption> </figure> </div> <p id="hRmEe9">The challenge of the step-by-step renovation approach is laid bare in the living room, Boyer says. Instead of removing the fireplace, for example, something Yao suggested at the time, they just painted the tan bricks white to better blend in with the walls, and had to hang a tapestry to cover a carved sculpture above it. </p> <p id="R3DcBd">“The materiality of the [original] ceiling against the white walls is part of what makes the Mission reference work for us,” he says. “We were taking those things and trying to work <em>with</em> them.”</p> <p id="mh5QsU">Compton appreciates that the interiors can be delightfully startling for an unexpecting guest, but says they’re still warm enough to be cozy; Yao and Boyer feel like they made a space where someone can relate to the architecture without knowing its whole story. This is especially important in a multi-year renovation, where spaces can easily begin to feel disjointed and reference points obtuse and esoteric.</p> <p class="c-end-para" id="3oWBGo">“One of the great things about the project was that we had an opportunity not only to explore [form and material], but to explore it in a manner that evolved over time,” Boyer says. They didn’t experiment for the sake of experimentation, he adds. Instead, they worked “from the perspective of how people want to live in the space,” says Boyer. “And understanding the way that those rituals or routines play out in a building.” </p> <p id="Bp7Kvo"></p> <p id="aK1Ikc"></p> Top 20 Home Tours of All Time: #14 A Stylist’s 1830s East Coast Farmhouse https://www.designsponge.com/2019/03/top-20-home-tours-of-all-time-14-a-stylists-1830s-east-coast-farmhouse.html Design*Sponge » Interiors urn:uuid:f9bb30bf-68a9-67fa-9c8e-7bee4e0b06f2 Mon, 25 Mar 2019 13:00:13 +0000 <img src="https://www.designsponge.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Joyelle_150407_0181-500x750.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="display: block; margin: auto; margin-bottom: 5px;max-width: 100%;" srcset="https://www.designsponge.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Joyelle_150407_0181-500x750.jpg 500w, https://www.designsponge.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Joyelle_150407_0181-200x300.jpg 200w, https://www.designsponge.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Joyelle_150407_0181.jpg 667w" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px" />There are few things I love more in a home than funny little nooks, exposed beams, and angled walls that make a space feel like a tree house or a doll house.

Those special moments make a home memorable for me and make me feel like a little kid again, wanting to decorate a doll house from top to bottom. The #14 spot on our Design*Sponge Top 20 Home Tours of All Time list belongs to a house that has exactly that feeling to me: <a href="https://www.designsponge.com/2015/04/a-stylists-1830s-east-coast-farmhouse.html">Emily and Bill&#8217;s Massachusetts farmhouse</a>.</p> <p>Originally built in the 1830s, this beautiful farmhouse felt so perfect that Emily, a <a href="http://www.mstarrdesign.com/">stylist</a>, and her husband Bill, who works as the marketing and outreach director of a <a href="https://www.pmc.org/">nonprofit</a> group, made an offer one day after the house went on the market. Their offer was accepted and they were delighted to find a space with so much historic detail that could be a home to their family and Emily&#8217;s growing business. Their kitchen is one of my favorites we&#8217;ve ever run, so I was delighted to relive and revisit this tour and all of its amazing exposed wooden beams. And of course, their sweet pup, Bruno!

What better way to do this than to learn about the latest spring trend’s and incorporate them into your current decor. With that being said, here are the latest spring trends that are completely taken over.</p><h2>Less is More</h2><figure id="attachment_101929" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101929" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101929 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/minimal-living-room.jpg" alt="" width="1200" height="796" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101929" class="wp-caption-text"><em>This spring you want to have one the items that make sense to you in the room, if it feels a bit too much you don&#8217;t want to have it at all.</em></figcaption></figure><p>This spring we are focusing more on sustainability and less on adding too many details to the room. Being strategic of what pieces of furniture you use is the key. You want to have signature pieces with other hints of detailing that bring character and beauty to a room.</p><h2>Feminine Hues</h2><figure id="attachment_101931" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101931" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101931 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/dusty-rose.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="1000" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101931" class="wp-caption-text"><em>When working with feminine hues you want to make sure you add those warmer hues in order to create a sleek balance. </em></figcaption></figure><p>Colors are becoming less about gender and more about personality- that is where feminine hues come into play. The biggest color palette this year will be a dusty rose, blush, and bronze. These shades have something quite feminine about them yet extremely versatile. Pair with warm hues to break up your feminine shades and give the room a more updated fresh look.</p><h2>Dominating Art</h2><figure id="attachment_101933" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101933" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101933 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/large-art-work.png" alt="" width="2000" height="1449" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101933" class="wp-caption-text"><em>When it comes to large art pieces you want to have as much color as possible for a beautiful contrast that expands throughout the room in a cohesive manner. </em></figcaption></figure><p>Artwork is coming with a vengeance this year! The bigger the art piece the better. The idea is to have a bold art piece and working with daring colors, patterns, and textures. Do not be afraid of taking charge of the room and making it feel as risky as possible. Think of “more is more” as the main purpose of the room.</p><h2>Floral Fabrics &amp; Wallpaper</h2><figure id="attachment_101935" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101935" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101935" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/large-floral.jpg" alt="" width="826" height="1487" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101935" class="wp-caption-text"><em>You want an almost fabric feel to your walls, your floral display should feel almost as if you can touch it and make it come to life.</em></figcaption></figure><p>If you were thinking floral is out of style you are mistaken, floral is coming in extremely strong this year. This is particularly true when it comes to floral fabric and wallpaper. Abstract or full-on floral will be the appeal to look out for.</p><h2>Rich Jewel Tones</h2><figure id="attachment_101937" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101937" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101937 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/layered-jewel-tones.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="1000" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101937" class="wp-caption-text"><em>Jewel tones are coming grand as you want to work on layering with them as much as possible. The key is layering as many </em>tones<em> as possible for a seamless touch that brings an edge to the room in a cohesive manner. </em></figcaption></figure><p>We are looking at rich jewel tones as the hues to look out for. The key is layering the rich tones one on top of the other and allowing them to mesh well together. Add a bold wall and allow the rich tones to bounce off the jewel hues for a bold pairing that adding a risky almost eclectic factor.</p><h2>Backsplash</h2><figure id="attachment_98521" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-98521" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-98521 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/eclectic-kitchen-with-wallpaper.jpg" alt="" width="1032" height="892" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-98521" class="wp-caption-text"><em>A pattern </em>backsplash<em> is an excellent option when you want to bring forth the beauty of your room with color and appeal.</em></figcaption></figure><p>Kitchens are getting a makeover, we are no longer looking at simple backdrops that add subtle color, this season we are gravitating towards bold, vibrant colors and patterns. The key is adding a touch of something special to the kitchen space while changing the feel of the room.</p><h2>Four-poster Bed</h2><figure id="attachment_101939" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101939" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101939 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/four-poster-bed.jpg" alt="" width="1600" height="900" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101939" class="wp-caption-text"><em>A four-poster bed will command your attention no matter where you place it, therefore, you want to decorate around it for a cohesive, </em>feel<em> in the room. </em></figcaption></figure><p>If you are looking for a bed that will feel cozy and intimate from the moment you see it, this bed is the way to go. The reason for this being it comes with four sides, which means the bed has an intimate shape that gives you hat extra dose of comfort.</p><h2>Bright Boho</h2><figure id="attachment_101943" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101943" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101943 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Boho-dining-room.jpg" alt="" width="2048" height="1365" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101943" class="wp-caption-text"><em>When it comes to Boho brights the brighter the better, the idea is to have as many colors layered as possible. The idea is to have a bold touch to your colorful element. </em></figcaption></figure><p>While layering fabrics is very much on trend, this season we will be seeing them with a boho feel that is brighter. We are looking at more curved lines with a mixture of vintage and traditional while making the space feel unique and put together. The idea is to make the room have a boho vibe while being crisp and clean.</p><h2>Acrylic Bits</h2><figure id="attachment_101945" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101945" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101945" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/acrylic-table.jpg" alt="" width="822" height="1248" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101945" class="wp-caption-text"><em>Place your acrylic table in the middle of the table to make the room feel put together and cohesive while being appealing and fun to the room.</em></figcaption></figure><p>Acrylic furniture is coming in a huge way, due to how versatile they can be. Pair them in a colorful room for a beautiful contrast that brightens the room in an overall manner. The key is to have the acrylic table be one of the biggest statement pieces in the room.</p><h2>Black Bathrooms</h2><figure id="attachment_101947" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-101947" class="wp-caption alignnone"><span class="post-image"><img class="wp-image-101947 size-full" src="https://cdn.trendir.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/black-bathroom.jpg" alt="" width="1131" height="841" /></span><figcaption id="caption-attachment-101947" class="wp-caption-text"><em>A dark shade such as black might not seem like the best color for a room when you are working on incorporating spring to your decor but it&#8217;s quite versatile </em></figcaption></figure><p>Black bathrooms are a top favorite this year. We are looking at a spa-like touch that is still extremely edgy and appealing to the eye. The idea is to add a sultry touch that makes the room come back to life in a versatile manner. You want to consider the size of your room before using this idea. Nonetheless, a smaller bathroom might feel over baring due to how darkening a dark hue can be.</p><p>Which of these spring trends are you most excited about?

However, undertaking this process is anything but simple. There are so many little decisions to make and important factors to consider that it&#8217;s easy to get overwhelmed. With that in mind, we&#8217;ve brought you four factors that make all the difference in <a href="https://brandcycle.shop/homedepot-updating-your-bathroom" target="_blank" rel="noopener">your bathroom remodel</a>. Concentrate on these and you&#8217;ll end up with a final product that you&#8217;ll be in love with for years.</p> <div id="attachment_315558" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-315558" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/shutterstock_1085882414.jpg" alt="bathroom remodel" width="550" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Plan the layout first. Image: Peshkova/Shutterstock</p> </div> <h2>The layout</h2> <p>The layout is a key part of the remodeling process. For one, if you decide to change the layout from its existing structure, it will likely be one of the most expensive parts of the entire remodel. For another, it&#8217;s one of the least likely facets of the remodel to be able to be altered if you decide you don&#8217;t like the end result. In light of that, it&#8217;s important to take this step of the process seriously.</p> <p>To do so, your first step is to think about how well your bathroom functions currently. Are you able to move through your daily routines with ease or are there certain areas where you continually get frustrated? Maybe you and a partner have trouble getting ready at the same time or there isn&#8217;t enough storage space to suit the needs of your whole family.</p> <p>Whatever your pain points are with the existing layout, be sure to write them down, along with the measurements for your current space. Then, bring these notes to a <a href="https://freshome.com/tips-for-hiring-remodeling-contractor/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">qualified contractor</a>. He or she will be able to walk you through your options for solving your current space issues and help you come up with a new layout that truly suits your needs.</p> <div id="attachment_315559" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-315559" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/shutterstock_614574728.jpg" alt="lighting" width="550" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Make sure to include plenty of lighting. Image: Lungkit/Shutterstock</p> </div> <h2>The lighting</h2> <p>Lighting is often one of the most overlooked components of the remodeling process, yet — especially when you&#8217;re redoing a bathroom — it is also one of the most crucial. Don&#8217;t believe us? Just think about how hard it is to complete daily grooming tasks like shaving or putting on makeup without a proper light source. To that end, you need to make sure lighting remains a priority as you undertake this project.</p> <p>We&#8217;ve said it before, but it bears repeating: the key to good lighting is layering. There are three main types of lighting that you can use and, ideally, your bathroom will include a mixture of all of them. They are as follows:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Ambient: </strong>Also known as general lighting, ambient light fills the majority of the room and allows you to move around safely. It usually comes from recessed lighting, track lighting or wall-mounted fixtures.</li> <li><strong>Accent: </strong>Accent lighting is used to highlight a particular focal point, such as a statement shower. Picture lights, wall-mounted-fixtures or track lighting are common, and dimmers are often used on these features to provide mood lighting.</li> <li><strong>Task</strong>: As the name suggests, task lights are used to assist you in completing a particular function. This could be anything from a lighted mirror to a pendant light that hangs over the tub.</li> </ul> <div id="attachment_315560" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-315560" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/shutterstock_525109642.jpg" alt="materials" width="550" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Pick your materials carefully. Image: ArchiVIZ/Shutterstock</p> </div> <h2>The materials</h2> <p>Though the materials that you choose to use are an important consideration for any remodeling project, the materials that you choose for a bathroom remodel are even more crucial because they make up the majority of the room&#8217;s functional and aesthetic potential. Truth be told, in a bathroom, there&#8217;s little to hide behind, so you want to make sure that every material you choose is the right one.</p> <p>As you plan out the remodel, you&#8217;re going to want to select materials for the following areas:</p> <ul> <li>Flooring</li> <li>Countertops</li> <li>Cabinets</li> <li>Bath Fixtures</li> <li>Backsplashes</li> <li>Waterproofing</li> <li>Lighting</li> <li>Specialty Features</li> </ul> <p>For each of these materials, head to a showroom and talk to a specialist about your options. In addition to aesthetics, evaluate each one in terms of price, safety and the required upkeep. Do your best to make decisions on each one before starting the remodeling process. Otherwise, you run the risk of making a decision that accidentally overinflates <a href="https://freshome.com/renovation-on-budget" target="_blank" rel="noopener">your budget</a>.</p> <div id="attachment_315561" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-315561" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/shutterstock_547769878.jpg" alt="aesthetics" width="550" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Don&#8217;t forget to consider the aesthetics. Image: PlusONE/Shutterstock</p> </div> <h2>The aesthetics</h2> <p>Finally, consider the aesthetics of the room. Though a bathroom may lead with its functionality, that doesn&#8217;t mean it should be entirely devoid of aesthetic value. Use the materials that you&#8217;ve chosen as the backbone of your design and then make choices on purely aesthetic factors — like the paint color or any accessories — that complement that backdrop.</p> <p>If you need help deciding on a direction to take, don&#8217;t hesitate to use sites like Freshome as a source of <a href="https://freshome.com/rooms/bathroom/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">design inspiration</a>.

Just so you are aware, Freshome may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. </em></p> <p class="p1">Sometimes we take for granted that the living room is, in fact, the place where we do most of our living. It&#8217;s a space that needs to serve multiple purposes and please multiple personalities. The living room is a place for parties and the location for movie nights. It&#8217;s a harbor where you can catch your breath after a long day, and the space where families can come together through the thick and thin and enjoy each other&#8217;s company. So it&#8217;s no surprise that the Freshome team has some opinions on what makes a good living room. Let&#8217;s take a quick look at what we think the dream living room needs to really shine.</p> <p class="p1">When polled, we all agreed that there are a few key elements every living room simply must contain. There&#8217;s the couch, comfortable and large enough to seat everyone in the family. Then there&#8217;s the accent furniture that makes the space pop. And we can&#8217;t forget the TV that often serves as the hearth of the home in the digital age. But what sets one living room apart from another? It&#8217;s all about the personality and the pieces you gather in the space. We polled our Freshome team to find out which pieces are absolutely critical in a dream living room and which can make all the difference when it comes to your design.</p> <div id="attachment_304171" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-304171" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa.jpg" alt="dream living room - accent sofa" width="550" srcset="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa.jpg 800w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa-150x150.jpg 150w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa-300x300.jpg 300w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa-768x768.jpg 768w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa-395x395.jpg 395w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-accent-sofa-324x324.jpg 324w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Your accent sofa is the place to show off your personal design flair. The <a href="https://brandcycle.shop/westelm-drake-sofa" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Drake Sofa</a> in mustard yellow? Why not! Image: <a href="https://brandcycle.shop/freshome-westelm" target="_blank" rel="noopener">West Elm</a></p> </div> <h2><span style="color: #000000;">#1: An accent color loveseat or sofa</span></h2> <p>One of the most fun pieces to shop for your dream living room is the accent loveseat or sofa. While you may want to go more traditional with your primary couch color (see below), this is a place to have some fun. With <a href="https://freshome.com/maximalism-trend/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">maximalism</a> trending, who says you can&#8217;t get a <a href="https://freshome.com/jewel-tone-colors/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">jewel-toned</a> sofa is a rich <a href="https://freshome.com/velvet-sofas/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">velvet</a>? Or a bold, patterned upholstery? Really, this is your opportunity to dream something up in your head, then buy it for your home.</p> <p>If you&#8217;re looking for a place to get started, we recommend one of our Freshome favorites: the <a href="https://brandcycle.shop/westelm-drake-sofa" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Drake Sofa</a> from West Elm, pictured above in Twill in Dark Horseradish. Some of our writers love the bright pop of yellow, while others prefer the more lush look of Distressed Velvet in Forest or Dusty Blush. All this to say, your accent furniture is a place to showcase your design preferences and pick a piece that will wow your friends.</p> <div id="attachment_314731" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-314731" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-couch.jpg" alt="dream living room - couch" width="550" srcset="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-couch.jpg 1067w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-couch-300x169.jpg 300w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-couch-768x432.jpg 768w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-couch-600x337.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1067px) 100vw, 1067px" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">A giant couch invites friends and family to gather – or gives you a place to stretch out by yourself. Image: CreativaStudio/<a href="https://www.gettyimages.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Getty Images</a></p> </div> <h2>#2: A giant couch</h2> <p>The right couch can be the centerpiece of any dream living room. When it comes to choosing your couch color, it&#8217;s tempting to want to go big and bold. After all, this is a piece that everyone&#8217;s going to be looking at – and sitting on. But don&#8217;t forget that this will be one of the biggest investments in your home (good couches aren&#8217;t cheap!) and you&#8217;re going to want to love it for years to come.</p> <p>Neutral colors give you the flexibility to change the room without needing to buy a new couch. All you need are new throw pillows and you can make your couch work with virtually any theme. When it comes to the shape, try to strike a balance between interesting and classic so you choose a design that has staying power. We love a good, square sectional sofa or one that invites you to plop down, like the <a href="http://brandcycle.shop/rnt7i" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Hamilton Leather Sofa</a> from West Elm. Still not sure which couch is right for you?

Maybe you want a bright and open feel to your living room space. In that case, an oversized mirror is just the thing to place on one of the prominent walls. It reflects light, making the space feel brighter, and adds an interesting design element.</p> <p>Or maybe you want to really add some personal flair. The living room is the perfect place for a gallery wall. When putting together a gallery wall, our Freshome team says you need:</p> <ul> <li>Art you truly love, like photos with personal meaning or paintings your kids made in class.</li> <li>Something thought-provoking, like a mounted sculptural element, an abstract art piece or black and white photos.</li> <li>A large piece to anchor the layout. If there&#8217;s no single piece you want to spotlight, consider adding a floating ledge to serve as your anchor.</li> </ul> <p>We&#8217;ve rounded up more <a href="https://freshome.com/gallery-wall-hacks/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">gallery wall hacks</a> to help you pull the whole thing together.</p> <p>When looking for art for your living room, don&#8217;t settle just because you feel like you need to get something up on the walls. Wait until something really speaks to you. Remember, you&#8217;re working to create your dream living room! And being surrounded by art you really love makes your dream living room a truly enjoyable place to spend time.</p> <div id="attachment_304175" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-304175" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-entertainment.jpg" alt="dream living room - entertainment" width="550" srcset="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-entertainment.jpg 619w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-entertainment-232x300.jpg 232w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-entertainment-306x395.jpg 306w" sizes="(max-width: 619px) 100vw, 619px" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Your living room can easily pull double-duty when it&#8217;s simple to tuck away your TV.

A flatscreen TV is a must (here&#8217;s a <a href="http://brandcycle.shop/jjihe" target="_blank" rel="noopener">VIZIO D-Series 24&#8243;</a> option from Target to get you started), but it doesn&#8217;t necessarily have to be the focal point of the room. We&#8217;ve highlighted a number of ways you can seamlessly <a href="https://freshome.com/2010/03/30/20-ideas-on-how-to-integrate-a-tv-in-the-living-room/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">integrate your TV</a> into the room or cleverly <a href="https://freshome.com/hidden-tvs/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">hide it</a> away. For example, you can tuck it away in a polished entertainment center, like the <a href="https://brandcycle.shop/crateandbarrel-cameo-entertainment-center" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Cameo 2-Piece Entertainment Center</a> from Crate &amp; Barrel.</p> <p>Integrating your TV is so important because your living room needs to pull double-duty. It can&#8217;t just be a space for entertain<em>ment</em>, it also needs to be a space for entertain<em>ing. </em>When choosing electronics, furniture, decor and lighting for your dream living room, picture the space full of people. Will it comfortably accommodate the groups you plan to host? Sectional furniture that can be moved around can help you carve out a better entertaining area. Hideaway TVs can make the space feel more intimate and dimmable lights can create ambiance. In short, when planning your dream living room, think through how it will function whether you&#8217;re curled up on the couch solo or you&#8217;re entertaining a large group.</p> <div id="attachment_314732" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-314732" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-chair.jpg" alt="dream living room - chair" width="550" srcset="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-chair.jpg 1000w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-chair-300x200.jpg 300w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-chair-768x512.jpg 768w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-chair-592x395.jpg 592w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dream-living-room-chair-323x216.jpg 323w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">Give yourself a space to relax by adding a comfortable chair to your living room. Image: Photographee.eu/<a href="https://www.shutterstock.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Shutterstock</a></p> </div> <h2>#5: A comfortable chair</h2> <p class="p1">Sure, a big couch is key in every living room. But what about when you want a little more space for yourself? A big, cozy chair is the ideal place to curl up and grab the aforementioned alone time. Plus, it&#8217;s a great addition to the living room of anyone who entertains. Not every guest wants to sit side-by-side with a complete stranger – or even a close friend. Add an accent pillow and a cozy throw and you&#8217;ve created an inviting addition to your dream living room.</p> <div id="attachment_304173" style="width: 560px; border: 1px solid #dddddd; background-color: #f3f3f3; padding-top: 4px; margin: 10px; text-align:center; display: block; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto;" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-full wp-image-304173" src="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-coffee-table.jpg" alt="dream living room - coffee table" width="550" srcset="https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-coffee-table.jpg 800w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-coffee-table-300x240.jpg 300w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-coffee-table-768x615.jpg 768w, https://freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/dream-living-room-coffee-table-493x395.jpg 493w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p style=' padding: 0 4px 5px; margin: 0;' class="wp-caption-text">When picking furniture, remember that an interesting coffee table (like the <a href="http://brandcycle.shop/xodja" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Yukon Natural Coffee Table</a>) makes even the simplest living room pop. Image: <a href="https://brandcycle.shop/freshome-crateandbarrel" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Crate &amp; Barrel</a></p> </div> <h2><span style="color: #000000;">#6: A memorable coffee table</span></h2> <p>No living room would be complete without a coffee table where you can place decor, books and drinks.
