Room in a Magazine!

We are extremely excited for our post today!  Any feedback from our readers is appreciated.  We want to know what you think about our newest posts.  So, make sure and leave a comment about your favorite piece of information shared!

The room that was chosen by our readers is room "A".

This room has a ton of awesome features and offers an excellent contemporary look.  Today, we are going to answer three important questions.  Which will help you achieve the look and feel of this room in your own home!

 Question number one:  What aspects make it clearly a contemporary style?

Answer:  Let's break the room down into two individual elements.  The first feature that catches the eye are the cleanlines of the cieling, furniture, and cabinentry.  Cleanlines are typical of the contemporary style.

The decor offers a modern feeling as well.  Not only do the accessories have cleanlines, but they are simple.  Even though they are simple they have class and aren't junk. The contempory style is clean and uncluttered.

Question number two: What makes it flow and harmonize so well?

Answer: The furniture isn't obstructing the walkways.  So many times we focus souly on the look and forget about function.  Function is key in making your room flow and harmonize.

 The surfaces aren't cluttered with stuff.  There is an apmle amount of decor to make the room feel homey and designed, but there isn't so much that it is suffocating.

 Question number three: How did they make the room appear light and airy?

Answer: The designers chose a bright, light color and used it multiple places in the space.  On the cabinents, ceiling, light fixture, table, and walls.  Now all white isn't for everyone, but use the same concept of applying light reflecting colors (not black) throughout your space.  By doing so, it brightens the room.

The other features they took advantages of, are the windows.  Utilizing that natural light allows it to be bright and airy without needing to add extra lighting.  This was accomplished by using minimal window coverings.  Such as blinds or blinds paired with light drapery panels or a valance.

Now take your favorite tidbits and incorporate them into your space, so you can love your room too.  Also, don't forget about letting us know what your favorite part of the article is.  As design lovers we always want to share, right?  We are excited to hear from you!
