1. Furnish for different needs
“Furnish your living room to suit everyone’s needs and not necessarily around the TV,” designer says. “You want a space where it’s easy to be together, but remember to include small oases of calm for time alone too. Include chairs for the people who live in your home, but make sure you have some extra seats you can pull out for guests.”
“A minimalistic, balanced look will come naturally if you don’t have too many things. Use a modular sofa that you can easily adapt to suit your space so you get just the right combination for your needs. Try one with lots of loose cushions so you can make the perfect spot to sit back and unwind.”
2. Limit materials
If you want to create balance and harmony, we suggest using just a few colors and materials. In this flat, designer combined white with ash-colored wood.
3. A place to relax and recharge
“Make your bedroom all about rest and relaxation. Choose natural materials and warm colors and use hidden storage for clothes.”
