Cure space deficiencies with color

KNOW-HOW

Color is one of the most powerful tools in interior design and home decoration. A space on the other hand, may have several deficiencies that you can work out by using color in a clever way. See some common space issues and how they can be cured with color. 

Issue: Low ceiling space

Match a vintage ceiling light with country style

KNOW-HOW

Country style is not a one answer question, since it accepts several interpretations and approaches. Typically, the style is associated with rustic, slightly cluttered, warm and comfort spaces, full of natural surfaces and vintage textiles and accessories.

Furnishing is typically rustic. This means that any antique piece you inherited from your grandparents can fit perfectly to the overall scheme. Preferable materials for furniture is wood, such as pine, maple, teak and oak. Wood surfaces can be painted or simple varnished to allow the grain to remain visible. Apart from wood, country style fits perfectly with wrought iron. If metal is used, it is better to have a rustic, matte finish.

Country style is mostly inspired by traditional and vintage styles. However, with time, the style is becoming more encompassing. So today, you may feel free to blend country style, with several romantic, ethnic or even contemporary elements.

Its catchword is versatility, the result of the best Italian craftsmanship tradition. With Amalong, Giulio Iacchetti scored the second episode of his collaboration with Bross, radically changing the ingredients of the recipe: if Ademar suggests a collection of important tables, with generous dimensions, almost statuesque with their elliptical or round shape, Amalong wants instead to be an eclectic project, attentive to the different needs of use.
