Frame your fireplace with a set of built-in shelves. This is a great way to create a feature wall in a living room. Feature walls look best when they are symmetrical, so make your shelving units equal in size. In the living room design above, we used open shelves. You can also add doors to cover the lower portion for closed storage. Add a pair of sconces and a mirror or painting above the fireplace to complete the look.
Beige is a beautiful and elegant color which looks particularly chic here when combined with a bunch of wood accents and especially given the green wall visible through the glass doors. This whole space feels very cozy and comfortable despite its simplicity. Wood-burning fireplaces and stoves add a unique touch to living rooms. They can be introduced in modern interiors without disrupting the balance, especially if you want to give the room a charming, bohemian feel. By mixing diverse materials, finishes, textures and patterns you can emphasize the desired characteristics and make other seem less striking.
When we think about usable space, we tend to focus on floor space. However, if the ceilings are not too low – think vertical and take advantage of available wall space for storage. Try a well-placed bookshelf or a group of staggered open shelves on the wall. Mix in a few decorative objects to make it an interesting as well useful addition to your living room.
Another strategy is to emphasize the height of the room. Having a living room with a double height ceiling is definitely an advantage in this case. You can further highlight that by displaying long curtains and a low hanging chandelier or pendant lamp. Arent & Pike had the right idea when designing this space.
