With the arrival of autumn we feel the need to make the house a welcoming retreat, a nest in which to take refuge when the days get shorter and protect us from the temperatures that begin to drop.

Let’s discover together the most effective tricks to use to decorate the house in the cold seasons!

Accessories

It takes little to give rooms a more comfortable look, for example by choosing the right textiles for the living room and bedroom, opting for soft and comfortable pillows, rugs, poufs, wool blankets and fabric covers.

The Sofa

If you are planning to change the sofa, we suggest you to choose a very soft and enveloping fabric model with a chaise longue or additional modules that allow the user to lie down and sleep.

The Reading Corner

A reading corner is one of the focal points of the home during the cold seasons. Also in this case a very comfortable armchair with a high and enveloping backrest is a must. Another solution could be a chaise longue that would give a touch of style to the room.

A Cozy Bedroom

As far as the bedroom is concerned, you have to focus on the most important element: the bed. If you have a bed with a wooden frame and headboard, we recommend you to abound with accessories: pillows, blankets, upholstered benches and furnishing accessories that balance the minimalism of the bed.

If you feel like changing your bed, we recommend a model with upholstered frame and headboard; a soft but modern, comfortable and informal one like Flou’s Nathalie bed designed by the great architect Vico Magistretti

When you have a small living room you should use some tricks to make it cosy and elegant, avoiding the two most common mistakes: making the room “heavy” and making it less functional. So the two keywords for this year will be: order and minimalism!

Order

Order always comes first! In a small space it is necessary that the visual impact is always pleasant and harmonious, so it is important to avoid clutter or a decorative style that includes too many accessories, such as the Boho Chic style, for example.

Minimalist style

As far as style is concerned, it is advisable to opt for minimalist and/or modern style. Few pieces of furniture with clean, rounded lines (the new trend for the autumn/winter season), accompanied by some design elements to give a touch of class to the environment.

Small comfortable sofa/armchair

The living room, regardless of its size, must be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertainment. So, let’s opt for an extremely comfortable and enveloping sofa and/or armchair with soft lines that will create a pleasant contrast with the minimalist style of the room.

Pouf

The pouf, versatile and multifunctional, is a useful and almost indispensable element in a small living room. It can be used in various ways, to sit, rest your feet when lying on the sofa or as a coffee table.

How to Decorate a Small Flat

How to decorate a small flat: the keyword is few, but designer pieces of furniture!

alki furniture

Decorating a small flat can be a pleasant and fun experience. You don’t necessarily need an interior designer, just follow a few small steps for a satisfactory result!

1) The first rule is not to overfill the space by “smothering” it with furniture and accessories. Few but the right pieces!

saba valentine armchair

2) Be sure about the style you want: modern, shabby chic, vintage, contemporary, boho chic… Try not to mix the various styles together, because you would risk the “bazaar” effect that is not suitable for a small environment.

3) Study the lighting points well. Light is a fundamental element especially for a small flat that may not have a terrace. Focus first on how to use the available natural light and then on artificial light.

4) As far as colour combinations are concerned, it is better not to exaggerate! It is not recommended to create an environment that is too neutral, but also an environment with too bright colours. The key word here is: Balance.

5) If you can, we advise you to choose designer furniture and avoid custom-made furniture, as if you were to change home one day you would avoid buying other furniture. Designer furniture is of excellent quality, long-lasting and easily adaptable to any space.

Ideas for Decorating and Empty Wall

vitra accessories collection

Some interesting ideas for decorating an empty wall using designer accessories.

vitra wall decor 1

Leaving a wall of the house completely empty could, in some cases, compromise the visual impact and harmony of a room. Especially in large rooms, if they are not palaces or period houses, it is always advisable to decorate the walls with method, using different colours, wallpaper, silk-screen printing or elegant design accessories. And it is precisely the latter ones that we will deal with in this post.

Wall clocks

Design accessories, such as those of Vitra, can be easily combined with any furniture and style of the house but also with any wall colour. They are miniatures of iconic furniture, colourful coat hangers or elegant and sophisticated clocks.

Tapestry rugs

Another idea we propose you is to use tapestry carpets, such as Nanimarquina’s Hayon x Nani instead of a painting. These types of accessories, made entirely by hand, are true works of art.

Acoustic panels

How about, instead, using nice acoustic panels, like the Beetle from Sancal company, to decorate the wall of your living room? The designer was inspired by the exhibition rooms dedicated to entomology and their terrifying showcases of insects…

Coat hangers

If the empty wall is located at the entrance of the house or in the hallway an idea would be to opt for a wall hanger… maybe coloured or in contrast with the colour of the wall.

Mirrors

Rediscover the Domestic Environment

Rediscover the domestic environment: how to re-evaluate and make our home more comfortable.

lomuarredi blog

Re-evaluating your home and then turning into an interior designer can be a funny and rewarding experience. No one knows its own home better than you and especially its weaknesses and strengths.

lomuarredi blog 1

Whether you decide to totally change the decor, simply repaint the walls or add a few new accessories, the keyword remains the same: comfort!

lomuarredi blog 2

All the boredom and anxiety we’ve experienced during this lockdown can be turned into creativity! We realized that home, being the place where we spent the most time during this period, must be suitable for our needs, must be a peaceful and relaxing environment, now more than ever!

lomuarredi blog 3

It doesn’t matter if we don’t live in a super luxurious environment; the important thing is that it reflects our personality, so that we like it and that it is comfortable.

lomuarredi blog 4

Definitely the living room is the most used area of the house. So we recommend quality armchairs and sofas that will last over time; a versatile design that fits almost any style and that it looks beautiful to the looking eye, turning the living room into our “corner of paradise”.

lomuarredi blog 5

The bedroom, which until a while ago was used only for sleeping, has now taken on a new role. Indeed, if it is skilfully furnished it can become almost a second living room. Thanks to chaise longue, benches, armchairs and coffee tables the bedroom can be used for breakfast, to rest and even to work.

lomuarredi blog 6

Another simpler way to re-evaluate your home is to add objects and decorative elements such as plants and flowers (both real and fake) that give a touch of colour and liveliness to the environment.

lomuarredi blog 7

Finally, you can opt to change the color of the walls, perhaps taking a bit of a risk and avoiding the usual white color. Painting the walls can be a very fun activity that involves the whole family!

Let’s use our creativity and the time we have at our disposal in a constructive way creating a small refuge that can make us happy!

Smart Working at Home

Smart working at home: how to furnish the office space at home.

molteni home office collection

Due also to the health emergency from corona virus the concept of office work has completely changed. The work of the new millennium is smart and mainly “from home”. The advantage is time management: in order to achieve the required goals or deadlines we can modulate it independently, the risk is that we never disconnect.

smart working

Create a cozy environment.

In this new context, the boundaries between work and private life seem increasingly blurred and balancing needs is not always easy. It is advisable to create a small working corner all for us, even if you live in a small apartment, where you can arrange your working day in a harmonious way.

In today’s modern homes, an environment specifically dedicated to smart working, like a real studio, is a bit obsolete. Hence the need to set up a space inside the living room or even in a bedroom, with versatile and very elegant solutions. Let’s see some examples.

Avoid office furniture.

One very important thing: no desks and office chairs or cold materials, which remind us of the rigidity and formality of the workplace. The smart working  corner should be pleasant, welcoming and reflect our personality and tastes. So even a simple footstool could be used as a chair…

A very important element is the lighting.

If your office corner is illuminated by natural light, this is sure to be a great luxury. Sunlight makes everything more relaxing not only for the spirit, but also for the view.

But in the evening or on dark days it is important to have a good source of artificial light at your disposal; for this you will need to choose the most suitable desk lamp.

Finally, don’t forget the comfort!

If, as in this period, you are forced to work from home for many hours, choose ergonomic, enveloping armchairs, perhaps even with a high backrest that allows the spine to remain straight.

In today’s houses, often very small, especially in the city, combining living room and kitchen can be a necessity as well as a trend: the result is a living area where the actual working area and the typical elements of the living area such as cupboards, bookcases and equipped walls coexist.

Opting for the uniformity of the furniture, the modular elements that furnish the kitchen extend with the same finishes and the same colors to the living room, creating a pleasant common thread. You can also give a touch of liveliness to the environment by choosing some colorful furniture, with an original shape.

By combining kitchen, living room and dining room you certainly gain more space and above all more light. In addition, family relationships also change. Nowadays it is almost unthinkable to have in an apartment with less than 80 sqm a kitchen divided from the living room. So let’s give life to our inventiveness and imagination!

Opt for sustainability which means furniture that will stay with us for the longest time possible. Furniture we won’t want to throw out. Consequently, the concept of environmental sustainability becomes very important from the furniture’s conception, right through its design until the end of its useful life cycle. Buy sensibly and consume no more than necessary. Quality ahead of quantity.

One of the key points of the Mediterranean style is to furnish without weighing it down. Furniture and accessories must be able to find space without overfilling the rooms. The impact of natural light in the living room is crucial.
If there are large windows in the room, light and light curtains will allow the sun’s rays to filter into the room.

New trends 2020: fitted carpet

lomuarredi blog post

You can breathe the 70s in the latest trends, so let’s welcome back the fitted carpet!

fitted carpet ideas 1

All other materials, such as wallpaper, have been brought back into vogue in recent years by many designers. Now it’s time for fitted carpet, which will be the new home furnishing trend of the year 2020. And there are many signs of this return. Perhaps due to the velvet coverings so present in the proposals of recent years.

 

fitted carpet ideas 6

A return that has little of what we were used to. A recovery that, as often happens, is a consequence of the new technical possibilities that allow to give a new life to a material, which in the case of fitted carpet, can be said to be entirely reinvented. Because the new 3D printing solutions offer yields and thicknesses that were not possible before and that bring us closer to the manufacture of long-haired carpets. Then it is up to designers and decorators to find original colours, new textures or imagine new applications.

One is to use this coating also on the walls and ceiling, not just on the floor, creating a sense of soft and fluid continuity. And during the week of the Salone del Mobile in Milan, among the stands of the fair, it was easy to meet spaces that used fitted carpet mainly as a technical solution, perhaps to soundproof an environment, but with good examples of decorative applications.

You can tell by the colours, the surfaces that give back that very refined material sensation. Obviously these are applications that at the moment are mainly suggested for public spaces, but these choices are also moving into the residential sector with very satisfactory results.

Complements That Favour Relaxation In The Bedroom

Complements that promote relaxation in the bedroom.
Furnishing elements and accessories that make the sleeping area a more conducive environment to sleep.

ercol bosco bed 1

Sleeping well is not optional: during sleep the body regenerates itself, a fundamental phase of psychophysical well-being. Sleeping poorly or badly can cause many problems, there are several studies. From mood swings to worsening of the immune system, from weight gain to the simple inability to concentrate the next day: failure to rest often has negative consequences. There are many factors that can affect the quality of sleep. Stress, anxiety, worries, health problems. But sometimes we do not realize that even the bedroom itself can alter the way we sleep.

sleeping well

And let’s not just talk about the quality of the mattress, which, of course, is essential. Even when we are awake we are strongly conditioned by the environment in which we find ourselves. The moment of night’s rest is no less important. Some environments can make it difficult to fall into a long restful sleep (too noisy, or too hot, for example).

sleeping well 1

According to feng shui, a thousand-year-old oriental tradition applied to architecture and furnishing, regular shapes and natural materials should always be preferred, and the accumulation of objects and disorder should be avoided. However, it is not necessary to apply the principles of feng shui strictly to understand that in a clean, tidy, cluttered room you sleep better than in confusion. The less furniture and objects are around you, the less the brain will be stimulated in the resting phase. In addition, numerous studies state that it is necessary to disconnect, separate from technology at least 2 hours before going to bed. In addition, it is very useful to furnish the room with sober colors, light, embracing pastels, relaxing and earthly nuances. Do not underestimate the importance of a soft, warm light point. A heavy curtain to create darkness. A carpet that makes pleasant contact with the floor of the room. There are many elements that can promote relaxation.

Wooden Furniture

Wooden furniture radiates warmth, relaxes the senses and can adapt to any decor as well as being eco-friendly. You have the feeling of being immersed in nature, into calm and serenity.

There’s nothing like a soft carpet to sink your bare feet into before going to bed or in the morning when you’ve just woken up. So, soft rugs, made with natural fibres and with warm and welcoming colours.

Design Curtains

External noise and natural light are two elements that can drastically reduce the quality of sleep. For this reason, it is important to place the sleeping area in a silent part of the house where light can only penetrate indirectly, as well as having good windows (with double glazing) and blackout blinds. But if for logistical or economic reasons you cannot intervene structurally, at least opt for blinds and insulating design curtains.
