Who said that you can't have an elaborate living area in the attic, complete with an entertainment unit and even a cozy fireplace? The television becomes the focal point of this attic living space, along with the sleek, contemporary fireplace. Skylights usher in natural ventilation, while the plush rug and the seating options bring in chic textural contrast. It is not just the modern homes that can put the attic to use. In fact, old structures that have been ingeniously renovated can play host to even more enchanting attic living rooms. This classic barn was transformed into a gorgeous home while keeping some of the features like the wooden trusses and the stone walls intact. Using these elements to its advantage, this attic space creates a cozy retreat right at home.
Sectionals often emphasize the power of straight lines, but they can also celebrate the art of the curve. A curved leather sectional is the perfect choice for a modern white space with a wall of windows. Note how the Arco floor lamp below mirrors the curved form of the room's sofa.
Since grass cloth comes in a wide range of weaves, you can pick a pattern that you like to give the living room walls a glamorous upgrade. But it is not just texture that these `wall wonders` offer. By picking a grass cloth in a vivacious color, one can easily create an accent wall without turning towards paint. But when using grass cloth in a bright color, make sure that you do not overwhelm the room and create a gaudy, intense space.
In our quest for the right living room color and the perfect patterns to bring it alive, we often ignore another very important facet of interior design that can play a huge role in shaping a perfect home. Texture is as important as color in creating a beautifully balanced and exquisite living room. In fact, you can use just a couple of simple neutral shades, embrace a tone-on-tone approach and use just texture to design a dashing room! While we regularly turn to concrete, wood and creative furnishings to add texture to the room, grass cloth is another great choice.
This is a perfect example of how symmetry can elevate the appeal of the small attic room. The twin table lamps in orange, the placement of the stools and even the chandelier in the context of the backdrop play a major role in defining the ambiance of the room. Repeating an accent color in more than one place and using visual symmetry can greatly enhance the appeal of such small spaces. Finally, we have a large attic that has enough space for a dedicated second kitchen, a pool table and a fabulous living area. A window seat in the attic is also a great choice and gives you an additional seating option when you invite guests over for a game night. Remember, though, that you will need to take the necessary permits and check the building code requirements before giving your attic that much needed makeover this holiday season.
