Focal Point – Fireplace

In this living room the fireplace takes center stage. Accentuated with a mirror above and a set of candles that can again be found throughout the room everything is set to promote the center piece, the fireplace. The candles and warm colors create warmth and make it an inviting space.

Focal Point – Window Shades

In this room the windows are the point of interest. The woven wood shades made of natural bamboos pop and stand out while creating relaxed comfort. The rest of the room complements the natural shades by utilizing earthy tones and naturals. A splash of color is added with a few throw pillows to complete the look.

Focal Point – Color

Here the color talks the talk. Using bright strong yellow in several areas like furniture and accent pieces in contrast to the white walls and flooring, an energized, young atmosphere is created. This room comes to live with its vibrancy and is complemented by a soft plush carpet to soften the look. The yellow parts are in balance and frame the room nicely.

Focal Point – Lighting

The detail is in the lighting. While the color scheme is kept neutral and with two tones only, the room comes to live through lighting. Using lot’s of overhead lights and an interesting oversized glowing light stand, the room gets its soft and inviting character. It transforms the walls and sitting area into an piece of art.

The main point of all these living rooms is that somebody took one idea and then worked the rest of the room around that thought. So… what’s your idea?

Natural elements feel comfortable, organic and can bring a room to life. Here are some natural decor items to transform your home:

Blinds & Shades
While there are the more traditional wood blinds that are nature inspired, the true newcomer are bamboo shades or woven wood shades. Made of woods, reeds, bamboos and grasses, these natural shades are simplistic yet stunning and a true focal point in any room.
