Choose Stone and Brick For Interior Design

Is just another brick in the wall, Pink Floyd may say. But the next photos don’t match at all the negative sense of the wall from the psychedelic song. On the contrary, interior walls with exposed brick, stone or concrete make a statement for men’s freedom and love for nature. Originally, interior bricked walls were specific for basements, towers or citadels. But modern art consists in the tradition retrieval, by adapting it into a contemporary manner, conform with our actual needs and tastes.

For the ones that are bored by simple drywalls, the brick wall could be an option to give a new blast to their room.

The Crystal Chandelier Like Centerpiece In Our Homes

Chandeliers are for rooms what jewelry is for women. Large charged sumptuous rooms demand the central presence of an elegant chandelier, but sometimes chandeliers fit very well also a simple modern room. It’s just like in women’s fashion. A simple little black dress always matches a diamond necklace.

Specially created for ballrooms, chandeliers are a symbol of elegance and pretention. As we may see them also in churches, we may consider they also are a symbol of respect and sacredness. This is why in time they became a symbol of select people. Today you may also see them in restaurants and concert halls. The normal placement of a chandelier is in the middle of the room. It attracts all attention toward this central point that spreads all the light. The chandelier must be elegantly designed and luxurious because it becomes the source of light which is the symbol of life.

Pure White interior Design Ideas

White color has a very strong meaning, primarily white symbolizes purity in some cultures, white symbolizes goodness, white is Monday’s color, and not least the white daisies are a symbol of loyal love.In technical terms, white is not a color, but a manifest of all colors, which is forming a complex energy field of light. White is the color of truth, the color of power, white in one simple word is perfection.

The first room has a clear style, white, used almost everywhere, symbolizing purity. The modern style room, along the play of white from the smallest mirror, to the white stripes on the couch with the beautiful white flowers clearly sends a cheerful mood. Windows, also white, let the light into the room, an on to every object, lighting and raising all the room. Once the light is in the room, the whole room just feels like it had just been lighten up. In the second room, which style is also classic, white is used sparingly on the walls, on a picture and lamp. However it feels like a clear room; although we see it used less in the room, the white overbears in competition with the other colors.

 

Using white, inside an apartment, you can see clearly that you have given a modern, yet classic touch. White can create a joyful and also a serious space. White is the color of peace, that’s why at battles men used to wave a white material to the opponent forcing it to make peace. From my perspective white themes are the greatest that you can use in your house. White is perfect for all rooms inside your house or apartment. Doing well and giving a good clear feeling, white, used in the lobby to the kitchen, bedroom, living room, bathroom, bacon, is making your home glowing with positive energy.{found on decorati}.

14 Staircases design ideas

Staircases are like a path between two spaces, the floor and its upper floor. Although at first sight they look insignificant, the truth is they have the power to complete, improve or worsen the look of your house.  Depending on your house dimensions and on how much space you are willing to occupy with your staircases, there are different designs. You may choose a straight staircase, a square staircase, a spiral shaped staircase, a semi-circle staircase or fractured staircase which follows the wall shape.

Besides its shape, a staircase can differ from another by its design.The staircase can have or have not stair risers. If it hasn’t, then probably it will be made from wood or a metallic material, having a schematic look. This type of staircase can fit a modern house, a studio or a lodge. If the staircase has a riser, you can paint this one with different models and colors or you can order some special made stencils. You’ll personalize the look of your house and you’ll prove that you are interested about every detail.

Pale blue interior design ideas

Among all colors, blue is the most immaterial one, making you think about the sky or the sea. Although it is a cool color, it doesn’t give you the chills. You will feel very welcomed and peaceful in a pale blue room. A blue environment calms you in the stressful days. Sitting in a blue room is like forgetting all about the reality, entering an unreal territory.  In Tibetan Buddhism, blue is the color o wisdom, creating a copy for the sky’s infinity.

If you want to create a calm, almost unreal feeling for your house, you should think about painting your walls in pale blue with all its hues. We have already seen the meaning of blue. When you choose a pale blue, a new sense is given. The pale hue is very discrete and fine giving the impression of a very delicate space.

Decorate Using Oversized Mirrors

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? That’s what every woman asks herself, not only the witch from ‘Snow White’. Since always women, and not only them, were fascinated by their image and, by extension, by mirrors. In fact, the mirror has a larger symbolism. On one hand, the mirror can be considered the symbol of Narcis, the mythological character that felt in love with himself after seeing his reflected imaged in the water. These are the roots of narcissism, the mirror being on object of self-admiration. On the other hand, the mirror is a symbol of a person’s double. It’s considered that the image from the mirror is a overturned alterity, most likely a malefic one, due to its turned position. But loving your own self is a vanity, and vanities are malefic.

Whether they know or not about these ancient myths, everyone has a mirror and some people even make a fetish of it. More and more people opt for large mirrors, not only for their utility, but also for their beauty. You can put a mirror anywhere, with the exception of the kitchen, but nevertheless no one stops you to do even that.
