ADVICE

Reader’s question

“I am currently renovating my house and I would like some advice regarding the W.C, the bathroom and the kitchen. My house is quite old, made out of stones and the space layout is a bit off.

1. W.C: we are placing it underneath a wooden staircase and we were wondering what kind of coating we should use to protect the wood.

2. Bathroom: we have split the bathroom in two separate spaces. One is very small and works as a cupboard and the other is the main bathroom with some alternations to the windows.

   

What colours to choose for my living room?

ADVICE

     

Reader's question:

I need your help to choose colours for my living room’s curtain, wall, ceiling and carpet. The living room is small but perfect square shape. Two wall sides having windows with 3 columns and two rows, one side having door in the end, other side too having door in the end. In the living room there is one big sofa and two small sofa chairs (dark wood brown body and cream colour seating). My home is in white and grey combination. All the furniture are of classic style. I like modern style living room but simple. The flooring is in white black and gray mixed marbles. I like vivid, fresh colours and contrast.

Our advice:

We made two schemes for you living rooms: 

  • Play with the contrast between cold and warm. In the first scheme we played with the classic contrast between warm and cold colors. Pick for the walls a light blue. This particular tone is optimistic and will definitely bring harmony and light into your living room. To balance the visual effect of the cold and light background we suggest for the floor to select a carpet with warm/ earth hues, like orange, terracotta, brown, red-brown, etc. Moreover, add orange details, like cushions and decorative items to accent further the contrast between warm and cold. In relation to the curtains, pick a neutral textile in grey, white, cream tones with a simple pattern.

KNOW-HOW

              

Buildings and generally architectural projects, are too large to be drawn full size on a sheet of paper. So, everything must be drawn to scale, or in other words smaller than they are in reality.
