Decorating Home with Mirrors.

Decorating your home with mirrors: how to decorate different rooms in your home with mirrors.

Decorating with mirrors 1

The mirror was created primarily as a purely functional element and finds its natural place in rooms such as the bedroom, the bathroom or the entrance to the house or to diffuse light in the rooms, or even increase the perspective of the spaces. But mirrors can also be used as decorative elements to decorate the home, to transform a room and give it a particular style and/or character.

Decorating with mirrors 2

A mirror is an extremely versatile piece of furniture, as it can be placed in any room, can have any shape, size and can be part of a composition. With mirrors you can renovate and decorate your home, even with little money, creating original and designer settings.

There are many places where a mirror can be placed: from the entrance to the hallway, the bedroom to the living room, a mirror in the right place harmonises the environment and creates pleasant perspectives. We recommend opting for modern, minimalist mirrors that can always be moved to other rooms or reused over time without compromising the visual harmony of the space.

The various models of mirrors available on the market create different effects in an environment; a mirror with an important frame or with a particular shape/size finds its maximum decorative expression when placed on the ground, becoming an important furnishing element of the environment, able to enhance the chosen style. This type of mirror finds its maximum expression when placed in a bedroom…

The use of mirrors is an excellent solution for cramped and poorly lit rooms; in this case you don’t need a huge mirror, just one of the right size and shape for the space available, meaning that in a small bathroom you don’t need a full wall mirror!

Creating a Stylish Bar Corner at Home.

Creating a stylish bar corner at home: achieve the perfect bar corner without compromising on style and design!

Who wouldn’t want a small bar in their home where they can enjoy cocktails with friends or family in total relaxation without having to go to a bar? If you are lucky enough to have a large kitchen or an open space where the kitchen, dining room and living room are all in one room, creating a corner bar would give your home a touch of elegance and exclusivity.

Sancal magnum stool

The possibilities are endless, but as a general rule it is advisable to use the top of the kitchen island as a counter, preferably made of marble, with several high stools around it – bar stools – in a modern, essential and minimalist style. The minimalist style, in fact, is versatile and adapts to any type of existing furniture.

A wide range of interesting stool models is available on the market, with wooden and metal frames, from original and artistic shapes to more classic and well-known models.

If you have a lot of friends, you will certainly not be able to accommodate them all in the counter area of your bar corner. It is therefore a good idea to make the relaxation area ultra comfortable: with high tables and other stools that perfectly recreate the atmosphere of a real bar!

New look for your home: trends for spring 2021. Let’s discover together the interior designers tips!

New furnishing trends for this spring include eco-friendly materials, neutral colours and the downsizing of spaces to increase the comfort and brightness of the home.

If you are not lucky enough to have a house with a garden, the only solution is to recreate a relaxing and serene environment inside, using eco-friendly materials such as wood or natural stone. And to make the atmosphere lighter, there is nothing better than wood or stone in light shades, which makes us imagine we are in a garden even inside the city flat.

Renovating the home doesn’t mean that you have to change all the furniture. Sometimes you just need to redistribute the space in order to increase the natural light coming in through the windows and optimise the artificial light through lighting systems.

It is not necessary to furnish the whole house with expensive designer pieces. Sometimes all that is needed is an object that stands out, and that connotes the whole environment with its distinctive personality. So an original table or particular chairs may be enough to give a touch of class to an entire environment.

Neutral colours such as grey in all its shades are back in vogue at this time. Leaving bright colours aside, interior designers recommend using the most neutral, versatile and elegant palettes as the main colour, and adding a few touches of colour here and there… for example on accessories…

Obviously, due to this period of health emergency, we are forced to redesign and rethink living spaces through the use of functional, convertible and versatile furniture that allows us to work and at the same time live our daily lives.

Ideas and Tips: How to Make the Living Room Larger

Ideas and tips: how to make the living room larger in just a few steps.

sancal alpino sofa

The sofa is the reference point and focal element of the living room, and it is on this piece of furniture that we must focus all our attention to make the living room larger. The choice of sofa is certainly one of the best memories we all have of when we were setting up our home. The simplest and most obvious reasoning would lead us to prefer a small sofa, and perhaps a couple of armchairs, in a small living room. This is a furnishing mistake, for the simple reason that so many small pieces of furniture “suffocate” the room!

So when furnishing a living room, always focus on the essentials: a large, comfortable and enveloping sofa, one or more coffee tables and a carpet. These few essential elements will create a functional, bright and spacious environment.

Another trick of many interior designers is to use sliding fabric doors to divide the various rooms in the house, reclaiming precious space, giving a touch of elegance to the house and the feeling of a larger room with more light.

An elegant rug is a must in any self-respecting living room, a decorative element that is becoming increasingly popular in new furniture designs.
The inclusion of a rug in the living room used to be a habit that has almost been lost with the latest generations, who prefer more modern styles.

But, in recent years it has come back into fashion as, a large rug, perhaps in light shades, will give us the feeling of open space and a larger living room. Even better if we match the colours of the rug to those of the surrounding walls, because we will also gain the light effect.

Where to Place the Dining Table

bonaldo furniture

Where to place the dining table: tips and ideas on the best positions for the table in the dining room, living room or kitchen.

bonaldo circus table

Current interior design trends see the dining table not as a stand-alone element but as an integral part of the home. When it comes to inserting this accessory in the dining room, living room or kitchen, it is necessary to carefully consider where to place it in order to maintain the visual harmony of the environment.

Placing the table in the dining room:

This is the most popular choice. For those who have a space to devote entirely to the dining room, the table becomes the focal point, the most important piece of furniture on which to adapt the rest of the decor. In this case, interior designers opt for placing the table in the centre of the room, choosing models with an elegant and refined design without forgetting functionality.

In a dining room, a rectangular or oval table is always perfect for any occasion!

Placing the table in the kitchen:

The kitchen is a cosy, intimate place for meals shared with one’s family. For this type of environment, we recommend placing the table near a source of natural light such as a window. If you have enough space it is best to choose a rectangular table, otherwise it is better to opt for a round one that does not take up too much space but at the same time can fill a gap that would be otherwise difficult to enhance.

Placing the table in the living room:

If you decide to place the dining table in the living room, you will have to design the room to create two different areas in the same space: the living area and the dining area. The table will no longer be the protagonist, but will have to coexist in balance with the sofa and with all the typical furniture of a living room: sideboard, coffee table, armchair, rugs…

One of the most important criteria when deciding where to place the table in the living room is to establish the correct distance from the sofa. You need to consider at least 60 cm of space that will allow you to move easily around the sofa and generally speaking at least one metre or a little more between the table and the sofa.

Relaxing in our own bedroom for a deep and restful sleep able to give us new energy: this is everyone’s dream, maybe at the end of a long day of work. To make it come true, it is important to furnish the room with care, creating a relaxing and restorative environment.

There is no need to ask for help from a specialised designer or interior architect to create a warm and welcoming environment, capable of giving peace and serenity: just follow a few style tricks and work on a few simple details.

Decorate the walls.

If you desire to change the colour of the walls, we recommend relaxing colours such as blue and light blue; or very soft colours such as cream, pastel green or lilac.

flou notturno bed

Another idea could be to consider wallpaper, or wood-panelled walls or stylized floral decorations for a minimal and personalised style.

Decorative Elements.

Equally important are the furnishing accessories. If space permits, it is possible to furnish the room with a refined and elegant pouf and footrest. Placed near a coffee table, they will create a corner of privacy and relaxation where you can dedicate yourself to your hobbies, from reading to listening to music.

The Upholstery.

But in the bedroom the real protagonists are the fabrics, i.e. the upholstery of the bed, curtains, rug and furnishing accessories: choosing the right ones means revolutionizing the appearance of the room in a single stroke.

Cushions and Pillows.

To complete the bed area there are soft pillows to be placed over the blankets. The most appreciated are the rectangular or square ones which, if combined correctly with the linen and the walls of the room, can recreate suggestive plays of colour and make the room welcoming as well as chic.

Home decor ideas for autumn season: how to give the home a warmer and more comfortable look.

home decor trends 1

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.

home decor trends 2

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

Small living room decor: some creative and smart solutions to furnish a small living room following the latest trends.

miniforms botera sofa

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.

miniforms boterina armchair

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.

miniforms soda coffee table

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!

saba geo armchair

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 an Empty Wall

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

wall decor 2

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 with original shapes can be easily combined with any furniture and style of the house but also with any wall colour. For example coat hangers or colorful, elegant and sophisticated wall 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.
