An open living space can have its benefits – great light and a sense of spaciousness. However, even an open living space needs a little organization to function well. Create a simple lightweight room divider with an open shelving unit. You can use high units or low units, either will create definition, without making your living space feel smaller. It will also provide great storage. Place larger storage items at the bottom of the shelving unit and lightweight objects above to keep that open feel.
The modern couch you fell in love with and simply had to purchase also tells a story, your present story, and there is no reason why the present and past can’t co-exist beautifully together. The same can be said for art. Now you might not want to place a painting by Salvador Dali on the same wall next to a Monet, but there’s no reason why they can’t be in the same room together. With fabrics whether it be furniture, rugs or pillows, varied colors and patterns can bring warmth and texture into your living space.
Every interior design project starts with a planning phase. What are you trying to achieve? Is it a remodel or a new build? Either way, for best results, you want to start with creating a floor plan – either of the room, the entire floor, or the whole house. If you already have a blueprint, you can use this as the basis for your project. If not, spend time measuring the walls and making a sketch – this is time well spent for later.
