The living room above is a great example of how to maximize a small living space. A room of this size has the tendency to seem cramped, but the large windows, light colored walls and ample use of mirrors not only reflect the natural light pouring in from the doors and the windows but the use of mirrors also gives the optical illusion of space, making the room seem larger than it actually is. Conversely, darker colors will make a room feel smaller. Even with the abundance of natural light and the strategic placement of the mirrors, this room in a darker shade would have a more boxed-in feel to it.
Design offers you a many ways to warm up a blue hue. "Even if you choose a cooler blue, you can warm it up through layers of texture and lighting. Warm white bulbs in lighting that spreads from ceiling pendant to wall lights and table lamps and exposed timber floorboards, cosy wool rugs, warming oak furniture and an abundance of textiles from fully-lined curtains to upholstery will promise your room temperature feels balanced, whatever shade of blue you pick," Amy reassures.
Some may see a blank corridor, but we see a gallery just waiting to happen. Hanging family portraits, photos, and artwork is a simple solution to give your pathway a personal touch. Choosing coordinating frames in a single color, like we see in this long hallway from Style at Home, creates a cohesive look.
