Like many of our clients, I have little kiddos running around and understand the need for a balance between luxury and functionality when it comes to selecting flooring. But with so many choices, how do you know which one to use? It may seem like you have to choose between aesthetics and functionality, but the great news is that you don’t! Today, I’m breaking down how to select functional and beautiful flooring for any space.
It is no secret that I am a big fan of drapery! Functionality and luxury are two words that come to mind when I think about window coverings of any kind. Though the main purposes of drapery are to provide privacy from your home and to protect your furnishings from the sun, they are also a way to enhance the overall space both visually and acoustically. Use your drapery to bring in a fun print or trim, enhance your interior with a vibrant color or provide a simple, or create a soft, neutral backdrop for your interior.
Designing kids playrooms is an absolute joy! Children are so invested in the spaces that are theirs, and they’re never afraid to play with bold colors and whimsical accessories. Maybe I’m just a kid at heart, but children make the perfect design clients.
I love incorporating vivid colors and prints into my designs. It can range from geometric, animal prints, organic shapes or the good ole’ stripes and polka dots – there’s always a place for patterned fabrics in your interiors. Prints and patterns are a great way to add depth, interest and personal touches to your home! So whether you like to layer patterns with solid colors or other prints, they allow for you to make as bold or as subtle of a statement as you like.
Physical walls used to determine the furniture layout of a room, but architectural designs have since evolved to include more open spaces. I love an open space plan because it gives you the opportunity to create various layouts using sectionals, sofas and lounge chairs! The position of each piece determines how the room flows and what the vibe of the room will be. So whether you want one large open space or one with a smaller space within, you have the flexibility to make it your own!
When you’re looking to make a statement in a room, furniture and accessories are fabulous. But for something a little more unique, a bold ceiling color is a great way to make a statement. It’s not too overwhelming, totally unexpected and it shows off your personality.
If you’ve been following the Ohorona24.in.ua team for a while now, you know that we’re a tad obsessed with unexpected statement pieces. An interesting piece of art or a fabulous accessory are great “go to” pieces, but sometimes you just need to let the walls to do the talking. Wallpaper is one of our favorite ways to incorporate a unique element of surprise into a space – especially when there are one or two walls that need some extra love.
Do you remember when it was a huge faux pas to wear white after Labor Day or when your shoes had to match your bag? It sounds so silly now because people don’t really follow these rules anymore, but there really was a time when ladies strictly followed those guidelines. Fortunately, the fashion industry has evolved and women are now dressing for their personal taste rather than following the rules.
The word “home” has a million meanings. It may be your place for relaxing or entertaining. Maybe it is the concept of time spent with friends and family. No matter what comes to mind when you think of home, there’s one important thing that is a constant: YOU!
Interior Design is always evolving. The industry itself expands and experiments, creating strong looks and philosophies like mid-century modern or shabby chic. And just as traditional begins to mesh with contemporary and formal with casual chic, your own style matures over your lifetime. So how do you keep up? Well, that’s where we come in! It’s our job (and specialty!) to help steer you in the right direction and find a style that is unique, timeless and classically you.
