I have a living room/dining room combo(all one room) that is long but somewhat narrow..I have the wall color and blinds already picked out.Now I need ideas for style...Looking for new couch also..
I like simple cottage or country looks..but can be alittle elegant if I want it to be.
Here are to pic to help with the vision.
Wow... seems like you are wide open for anything you like. But since you have bamboo shades or blinds, you could go with a beach theme. Your wall color is going to be a neutral when you get it up. Am I right? You are changing the gold shown in the first picture?
I have done many a room around a picture, even a greeting card.
I believe that rustic or eclectic styles will perfectly match the window blinds. But if you ask me, you'd better check some fine sources for interior design ideas, like http://houzz.com for example. Explore some photo galleries and pick the style that you like most :) Good luck, CountryLisa72 ;)
I loved the upstairs' wall color and the first thing that came to my mind is some hangings in the wall, but not the normal ones but something out from your collectibles; something old but classy. Like, something that are memories of your childhood that you think can be threaded into a hanging model type or something will really give a magic to those walls.
I have this crave for the collectible items and I guess that grew from the day I bought few things, rare and memories of old times, which was once a collectible of someone, but will definitely bring back our past, from a self-storage facility You won't believe, if you have any such places in your area should definitely check out and you will get cheap but really valuable things that you definitely crave for.
I think you shuold try out concetto tiles as they are made of semi precious stone and it will give your home a unique and elegant look. When it come to concetto tile I trust Omicron Granite. You can see read reviews about it at http://www.yelp.com/biz/omicron-granite-and-tile-miami-2 and it will help you to decide.
I guess you want ideas for decorating your empty living room and dining room. You can create your own style by different methods like adding a random collection of art pieces on the wall, giving natural colors and textures for wall to get an earthy feeling, creating intimate seating areas for conversations, etc. I had decorated my living room by mixing modern and traditional accessories and furnitures. My living room is spacious enough and I have a red coffee table in the middle of it. I used to buy fresh flowers regularly from an online flower delivery service in Toronto ( http://www.flowerscanada.com/ ) and place it on my coffee table. It made my room fresh and lively. Try to choose furnitures and accessories that match your room structure. All the best.
If you want to try lots of styles to make up your mind, I know a great website that allows you to do it quickly and very simply ! You can take a look if you want : http://home.by.me/en/
If you want to have a more full idea of what your living or dining room will look like you can also ad furniture similar to yours (or new) to have an idea.
I used it when I redecorated my whole house last year and since, I just can't help myself, I recommend it to everyone.
Hope you'll find what please you, good luck !
