LIVING ROOM: MODERN HOUSE DESIGN IDEAS AND INTERIORS
LIVING ROOM- It’s no secret that it is in the design of the house that most modern ideas are concentrated. The interiors house design of private residences in 2018 confirm this opinion. The area of houses is usually much larger than the footage of ordinary urban apartments.
This means that owners of cottages initially have many chances to give vent to their imagination. Bath complexes with hammams, Greek columns and round baths, luxurious attics with gyms, mini-bars and dance floor, cozy winter gardens, comfortable home cinema halls, stained-glass windows and rich decor – all of this we can often find in big private houses, which were repaired on a professional design project. In this article, we illustrate the interiors house design of private designers Ruslan and Maria Green examine the ways of applying modern ideas in the arrangement of houses.
THE DESIGN OF THE LIVING ROOM WITH A TILED FIREPLACE
The stove with tiles was always an ornament of Russian houses and estates. Modern ideas of house design in 2015 suggest recollecting again the elegant tiled fireplaces – symbols of prosperity and hospitality of landlord and merchant life. The stove with tiles in the photo above perfectly fits into the interior of the living room with a slope in the country style. Designers even managed, without prejudice to the overall composition, to bring in the room elements of Art Nouveau. This design project demonstrates that the tile stove can look very modern after long years of oblivion.
CEILINGS WITH CAISSONS IN THE DESIGN OF THE BEDROOM IN THE HOUSE
Did you know that coffered ceilings were originally applied in order to relieve the load from the beams by facilitating the construction? Now, this type of ceiling coating is used more for decorative purposes, than for the sake of reducing the mass of slabs. Although the ceiling with caissons continues to solve purely practical tasks today. For example, it improves acoustics well. In the center of the caisson ceiling, in the area of the chandelier, you can place the decor of the fabric. Such a drapery, equipped with internal lighting, makes the room more luxurious and aristocratic.
DESIGN OF A BATHROOM WITH A WINDOW IN A PRIVATE HOUSE
The design of a bathroom in a private house is often in no way inferior to the interior of a living room. In modern bathrooms now you can see and luxurious chandeliers with crystal pendants, and murals, and stucco, and the classic columns. Studying modern ideas in the world of interiors house interiors house design, you, probably, already managed to pay attention to the fact that the bathrooms now often provide windows, the decor of which is given considerable attention. And there, where there is a window, almost necessarily must be curtains.
WALL CLOCK WITHOUT DIGITS
Today you will easily find a watch not only without numbers but even without arrows and a dial. However, in the design of this cabinet in the attic is used quite a traditional clock mechanism, which differs from the usual devices to us only because the figures here are replaced by figures of flying birds. A similar design of the watch contains some subtext. He recalls the transience of time. For the design of a small attic, this solution is also successful in that it, being very light and barely noticeable, does not make heavier the already limited space.
COMBINING THE KITCHEN AND HALLWAY
Introduced in the photo above, the interior of the year 2015 was created as part of the design of the townhouse project. The customer did not want to combine the kitchen with the living room, and the designers did not allocate a separate room for the kitchen space because of the limited footage. So there was the idea of uniting the kitchen from the hallway. The conditional boundary between these two zones in a single room helps kitchen island.
COLUMNS IN BATHHOUSES AND BATHROOMS OF THE HOUSE
Bathrooms and saunas in private homes are a separate topic for conversation. Often they replace their owners with spa salons. Bath complexes can extend to huge areas, creating a lot of zones for relaxation, recreation, and water procedures. The design of a bathroom in a house is often fundamentally different from the interior of a city apartment. In the first case, you can even forget that you are in a room related to the so-called “wet zones”. Designers often strive to make bathrooms in homes as luxurious as living rooms. Therefore, in the decoration of saunas, swimming pools and bathrooms in homes often used columns. This classic element is used for framing bathing bowls. It helps to allocate a pool or bath in a separate zone, giving space order. Columns can also serve as the basis for the dome above the bowl, forming a sort of gazebo and bringing together the usual bath with a bath in the country garden.
WINTER GARDEN ADJOINING THE LIVING ROOM
Modern ideas, embodied in the design of the house, now promote winter gardens. For the Russian latitudes, this is especially true, because even in cold weather, households have the opportunity to admire the green plants. Winter gardens are small corners for rest and relaxation, they are often arranged in the neighborhood with living rooms or in attics. The main thing to remember is that plants need sunlight, so it is better to break such “green” oases in well-lit rooms. As, for example, designers Ruslan and Maria Greene did in one of the projects. By increasing the doorway between the living room and the conservatory, the specialists succeeded in making the two rooms appear uniform. Thanks to this method, the beauty of the picturesque plants from the garden can be enjoyed without leaving the living room. The sculptures of the Atlanteans supporting the arch, like any reminder of the Hermitage and the Winter Palace, emphasize the classic character of the composition.
