This week's interior just makes me say,"wow!!!!!" With five exclamation points. it comes to us from one of my favorite design sites, lonny.com.
My favorite way to design a home is to cluster separate living spaces around the home. This may be impractical for those of us in small homes or apartments, but when I have a larger house I am going to organize it this way in every single room.
Take a look at this floor plan I found online, here. I highlighted all the separate living, or seating areas.
As you can see, most rooms have multiple seating areas. Giving the residents a variety of options on where to sit. I love this because it avoids redundancy. You can have a chair for reading, a stool for eating, and a bench for putting your shoes on.
This week's room is a great example of this idea. A lovely and loungey daybed Is the source of this new living space. You can do a clustered arrangement by adding a nice floor lamp or table. Or a combo! I love this bamboo table/ lamp. What a clever idea. How nice would it be to lay on the daybed reading a classic novel by the light of the window.
Here is another example of a clustered living area. A bright breakfast "nook" full of mismatched chairs and a minimal table. Wow I think this is straight from my dreams.
In my own small home I have created living spaces with single benches or chars. I love the flexibility it provides. and I just plan, love furniture.
How have you, or can you create a variety of seating spaces in your home?
Have a beautiful and bright day!
