Make Smart Choices
Whether it’s a condo, townhome or single family home, all Branthaven interiors are designed with multifunctional interiors and spacious layouts that are open concept, easy to furnish and maintain and most importantly, have no wasted space. Transitions between living, dining and kitchen areas flow effortlessly and are visually appealing. Layouts have been designed to make life simple, easy and effortlessly in sync with modern living.
CREATE A FOCAL POINT OR TWO
Carefully arranging the furniture in a room with two focal points makes the space unique and interesting. If it’s your favourite piece of furniture, your fireplace mantle or a favourite piece of artwork, a focal point can attract the eye and bring all the elements together. To keep your space interesting and create “movement,” spread the wealth. Consider choosing one color or pattern from your focal piece and apply it in small touches throughout your room.
When decorating a living room, one of the most common mistakes is to rely on overhead lighting. Harsh direct lighting is not conducive to relaxation. Lamps are a great way to soften a space. Consider an assortment of lamps at different heights (with an assortment of bulb watts) spread throughout your room. Recessed or track ceiling lighting is great for feature areas as well as under-counter lighting, and art lighting can help highlight specific areas while providing ambient lighting throughout the rest of your space.
WALLS AREN’T ONLY FOR PAINTING
Bookshelves can be traditional, modern or contemporary. They service as great feature areas, but remember: not everything has to go on your shelves. Keep it clutter-free. Consider wall decor or hanging a collection. Almost anything can be framed. Adding a stone feature or accent wall helps separate spaces within an open concept area.
Creating a clutter zone or a drop zone can help keep the rest of your home clutter free. The best space for a clutter catchall is right beside the door that you use most frequently, but other areas may work also. Access your needs as you begin your day.
