Although it may seem an odd choice, choosing blue as the main colour in the home is a winning tactic in most cases! Blue is by far the most relaxing and elegant colour; it gives a lot of depth to the environment, enriching it with its strong but discreet personality.

Painting the walls in blue creates a backdrop against which you can play with the colour of the furniture, ranging from pastel colours to neutral shades or daring here and there with some brighter shades such as yellow or orange…

If you are afraid of being too daring by painting your walls blue, you can opt for a more ‘classic’ style, i.e. combine white walls with blue furniture, such as armchairs, a sofa or other objects, and combine the various existing types of blue: Indigo, Ottanio, Avio, Oceano etc…

The main characteristics of this colour are:
-it adapts well to all styles, both classic and contemporary;
-it can be combined with a wide variety of materials: marble, wood, metal, even difficult ones!
-it adapts to all rooms in the house, from the kitchen to the living room, from the dining room to the bedroom…
-The colour blue influences the mood. Being the colour of the sky and the sea, blue has a calming effect.

It is not recommended to use dark blue in large quantities in large rooms: you may cause a depressing and gloomy atmosphere. Moreover, always make sure that the room is well lit by natural light, which, when combined with blue, will create bright and elegant shades.

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.

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!

Large vertical mirrors are perfect for use in entrance halls or corridors, complete with accessories such as an object holder or clothes racks; in the case of Benvenuto by Miniforms, the mirror is transformed from a decorative to a functional element!

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…

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.

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.
