Living Room Concept Ideas

19th March 2013
As many of you know I am working on my new home and rather excited that it is slowly coming together. Today I thought I would share with you the concept behind the living room. We have original terracotta flooring and high vault ceilings so I feel it is important to keep certain elements quite classical. However I love to mix in some contemporary pieces keeping it quite cool and industrial at the same time. So far we have ordered that exact sofa featured on the moodboard and those white unit shelves. We restored the fireplace and covered it in bricks – the exact one is also shown below. Still many bits and bobs to buy but I am longing for a trunk to act as a coffee table and dreaming of a similar rug to the Jonathan Adler for the Rug Company – it’s divine but not within my budget. I currently have two Kartell Bourgie lamps that were given to me as a wedding present – thought it would be nice to incorporate them over a rustic console table… Anyway it’s still a work in progress and as many of you know sometimes we move away from our initial concept plans as more ideas evolve – I guess that’s the beauty of design.
