20 Charming Living Rooms With Wooden Panel Walls

In the past couple of articles, we have compared the living room’ walls as an empty canvas waiting to be filled with art and provide the interior with specific energy, and now we are here again with the idea of how walls and more precisely wood panels on the walls will help you to beautify the living room. The usage of materials has a direct connection with creating a specific layout, style and ambiance in the living room. For instance, concrete can work for a modern living room, but it will also provide the place with cold ambiance. Therefore, if you want to attain a warmer and more profound energy in your living room, then you should think about using warmer material such as wood panel walls. The best thing about wood paneling, is the flexibility of the panel to adapt to every style and setting of the place, because

Bedroom Deco and Design Ideas

The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house.  It’s the room we spend the most time in.

It’s where we recharge, reconnect with our partners, reflect and recuperate.

We owe it to ourselves to create intimate sanctuaries that resonate with who we are, but also embody the tranquility we’re searching for.

If you’re looking to create a peaceful bedroom, the Japanese platform bed is the perfect piece of furniture that will set this tone.

The Japanese platform bed’s clean lines lend it a look of beauty and simplicity.

It differs from other platform beds in that the Japanese platform bed does not require the use of a box spring mattress and typically does not use head or foot-boards. 

They sit close to the ground on four posts, an unpretentious design that evokes an old world Asian aesthetic.

The mattress simply sits atop surrounded by a stunning

50 Marvelous Cottage House Exterior Design Ideas

The Harmony Mountain Cottage Home Plan is based upon the presence of a splendid vista in a natural setting. There can be two options available, namely buying vacant land, or buying an existing cottage, tearing it down, and rebuilding. The advantage of the following the tear-down route is existing amenities, such as access to roads, electric and water lines and perhaps even a septic system. And it is often possible to rebuild upon the old base, which allows economies in construction (and sometimes circumvents newer zoning restrictions). However, vacant land is usually cheaper to buy. Prospective buyers must check to see if there is year-round road access; existing electrical, water, and telephone lines; and if not, how much it would cost to bring in these utilities. Check out the view from possible building sites. Check that, if the land is on or near a shoreline, it is suitable for swimming,

A dining-and-family-room combination is a common layout in modern homes. But when it comes time to decorate the space, choosing a paint scheme can be a challenge. Whether you want to separate the rooms, unite the rooms or just create a look that wows friends and families, there are several options for creating a beautiful space.

Unite the Space

When your intention is to unite the dining and family room, there are a few ways to go about it. The first method is the simplest, which is to paint both rooms the same color. This creates a visually seamless room from one end to the next. To create a little more visual interest, paint an accent wall at the end of each room, creating a frame around the space. This works best when you paint the main area

What Are the Responsibilities of an Interior Designer?

If you have a flair for design and enjoy working with people, interior design may be an ideal career choice. Interior designers use artistic elements to create living and working spaces that meet the needs of various clients. In contrast to an interior decorator, interior designers have specialized education in building codes, environmental sustainability, technological design and other physical design considerations. Interior decorators furnish a space, without advanced knowledge of artistic and mechanical design elements.

Job Description

Residential Design

If you specialize in residential interior design, you will work closely with clients to determine their needs and wants for a specific room, or an entire home. In some cases, you may provide design expertise for a new building project. You may also be called upon to help with a single indoor or outdoor living space. Most design projects involve meeting several times with clients, creating a design and providing furniture

15 Exterior Design Trends for 2019

With 2019 well underway and springtime approaching, many of us are thinking about the exterior home projects we can start when the weather warms up. Whether you’re the DIY type or looking to bring in the experts for a major exterior remodel, we’ve got plenty of inspiration in these 15 exterior design trends for 2019.


Painted Brick

Painted brick is certainly nothing new; you can find it on modern homes and historic homes alike. But we’ve seen a growing trend in homeowners electing to cover traditional red brick with a fresh coat of paint with the results feeling both timeless and totally fresh. We love the way white paint transformed this mid-1980s red colonial from Young House Love to a stunning and stately home that looks like it has been around for centuries.

Modern Farmhouse

42 Things in Your Living Room, Family Room and Great Room cover

I know 42 Things in Your Living Room, Family Room and/or Great Room is an exceedingly long title!  But, it didn’t seem right to create 3 separate lists for these 3 separate types of rooms because, well, they are so similar {grin}.  So, if by chance you have all 3 of these rooms in your home, you’ll need to print the list 3 times.

In my house, I only have one such room.  I have a Great Room combined with my kitchen.  We don’t have a separate living room, but we do have a separate dining room.  When we had the opportunity to choose a new floor plan, after our house burned to the ground in the 2007 Southern California wildfire known as the Witch Fire, we decided we’d rather have the one large
