Living in the space

The all-in-one space

When you first move out of the nest your new place is not the biggest of places and spaces normally need to be used for a variety of things, such as a living room which serves as a dining room, T.V room and a study. This design is the perfect solution for that.

Bright white

Keep it simple and uncluttered by using white as much as possible, even the T.V is hidden behind the cabinet doors.

Naturally chic

If white is too bright for you but you still want to create a space that is uncluttered and filled with simple, clean lines rather opt for a more neutral colour while still playing with the natural light.

Loft like

Another twist on the all-in-one space idea but this time the design uses a toned colour palette and also creates an artsy atmosphere by using a variety of design pieces.

Bold and strong

This space is unapologetic with its use of colour and strong lines. It lends a more masculine energy to the space and we can almost see this space as belonging to a jet setting graphic designer.

Open plan

Rather than demarcating different spaces, play with an open plan creating a space that uses one design element, thus ensuring that the space feels bigger than it really is and also creates a sense of tranquility.

Prussian blue

Why not create a statement by painting your media unit a bold colour, this not only creates a focal point in the room but can also serve as a conversation starter.
