Make any room feel bigger

November 2014 Redbook has a great article in the Design School series.

Make any room feel bigger Tiny space? No problem. Listen to this wisdom and you’ll swear that someone snuck in and added some serious square footage to your home.

Redbook Design School series November 2014

Make any room feel bigger

Tiny space? No problem. Listen to this wisdom and you’ll swear that someone snuck in and added some serious square footage to your home.

  1. Opt for a dark accent wall-it will make that area recede and the room look larger.
  2. Mirrors reflect light and create the appearance of more depth.
  3. Limit big bold prints to throw pillows or small furniture ranther than dominant pieces like the sofa.
  4. Go for glass or acrylic tables. Because you can see through them, they don’t take up any visual space.
  5. Light it up! Dim areas disappear, so add lamps or sconces (to free up floor space) in at least three corners.
  6. Another way to open up a room: Buy curtains and paint bookshelves in similar tones as the wall. They’ll blend in, creating a streamlined effect.
  7. Play with scale. A tiny room full of tiny furniture appears even smaller than it is.
  8. Floor to ceiling drapes draw the eye upward, making the ceiling seem higher.
  9. The low profile of backless seating-think poufs, X-benches, and garden stools-won’t add visual clutter.
  10. Invest in a large area rug. Your eye naturally goes to the outer edges which maximizes your square footage.

Dining Room in The 2014 Southern Living Idea House

Dining Room in The 2014 Southern Living Idea House

Dining Room in The 2014 Southern Living Idea House

The 2014 Southern Living Idea House is Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina

“In perfect tandem, architect Ken Pursley and interior designer Suzanne Kasler work together to write the next chapter of southern style. It’s lighter, fresher and more livable than ever before.”

I love the whole house. The over-sized pendants make the dining room. They are described as having “the feel of an art installation.” A series of lanterns with glass globes rather than a chandelier or single pendant allow you to  see through them right out to the water

The Decorating

“Like Ken, Suzanne encourages people to explore and use every part of a home. ‘In a house like this, most of the eating happens outdoors,’ Suzanne says. She laid the proper foundation for a dining room, a rug to anchor the space, a trestle style table, and a variety of seating options. But then she took a thoroughly modern approach, pulling an ottoman (which is more useful than a bench) right up to the table and using the dining area more like a library table. This home’s dining room, like every other one in the South shouldn’t be relegated to occasional-use-only status. Enjoy it every day. ‘This is today’s way of living.’ says Suzanne.”

The Details

“The six pendants have the feel of an art installation and further accentuate the lowered, beamed ceiling. Combining these lights with the tabletops driftwood and globe accessories, Suzanne established an entry point for her layered sculptural look. ‘I wanted to show a casually elegant side of living.’ she says.”

Past Master

“He may be a furniture restorer to the stars, but in his own Brooklyn townhouse, Karl Kipfmueller opts for the worn and the faded

“The kitchen cabinetry and stainless steel countertops are by Galesi Design, the pendant lights are by Progress Lighting, the under counter freezer and refrigerator drawers are by Summit, and the Wolf stove is vintage; the walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Dulamel in White and the flooring is cork.”

Desk Lamps

The right light makes all the difference in your home office. You need a desk lamp that is truly adjustable. When you adjust it, it should stay adjusted! You need to be able to position it to easily see your papers without glare and without reflections from your monitor. You should be able to adjust it without burning yourself. The light should not shine directly into your eyes. The right lighting in your office can keep you from getting headaches and eyestrain.

Whether you have vision problems or not, good light is essential. As your eyes age or if you are faced with vision issues, lighting becomes even more important.

“Traditional table lamps with lampshades do not provide a way to direct light to where you need it to read or perform tasks such as writing checks or any other close work. When you select a lamp for a table or desk, choose one with a flexible gooseneck than can be turned to direct light where it’s needed.”
Macular Disease: Practical Strategies for Living with Vision Loss by Peggy R. Wolfe

There are so many choices available, but all good desk lamps have the same qualities! In Oliver Heath’s Home Book he says on desk lamps; “There are a massive variety on offer, but these lights generally have a solid base and a stand with the light bulb shielded or directed by the shade. It’s important to pick for your work area a light with a shade that will prevent glare from the light bulb, which can potentially create eye strain. Try to choose a desk lamp with some level of flexibility, such as an angle-poise lamp, which allows you to manipulate it into a variety of positions to best suit the task you are carrying out – for example, to shine light onto a surface or onto a wall to balance the light levels.”

You don’t have to give up style and fun for efficiency. There are a lot of options available to fit any style.
