Adding midcentury complicated aptitude to a guest bedroom
November 12, 2015 - table lamp
Hilary Tomeny would like to supplement celebrity and aptitude to a 10-by-13-foot guest bedroom that also serves as a home bureau and practice space in her Alexandria home. She wants to optimize a good light that a room gets while adding a few astonishing touches to emanate a space that is ease and relaxing though also quirky.
Designer Lok Yan uses splendid colors and purify lines to move a mid-century complicated vibe to a room. An accent wall with a healthy timber demeanour and lots of art pull a eye adult and creates a room seem larger.
Yan, with Perceptions Interiors (www.perceptionsinteriors.com, 202-330-5619), is formed in a District.
Paint a walls a soft, pointed gray, such as Benjamin Moore’s Shoreline , to give a room a neutral backdrop.
A daybed in a confidant valuables tone serves double avocation as lounging space and a bed for guests.
Choose vertical, rather than horizontal, artwork to element a room’s sloped ceiling.
Mix materials and textures, such as timber and metal, to give a room regard and visible interest.
A complicated swing-arm wall lamp creates an insinuate seating vignette and a gentle place for reading.
Add seductiveness to a space with bright colors and confidant patterns in upholstery and art.
