You can go after this design if you have an L-shaped divider or at least any kind of divider separating your living room from other spaces of the house. You can box in the divider with drywall and add an attractive wood top as shown in this picture. The divider can even be replaced by open shelving, railings, or possible with a built-in sofa. A couple of pots with flower and plant, table lamps, a ceiling fan, sectional, and a couple of sofas will do the rest for you.
Step-down or sunken living spaces have a long history that goes back to the late ‘50s. The style is making its way back to the modern interiors because of more practical purposes. This style of dropping the floor is necessary where raising the roof is not possible. The use of partitions, walls, or thresholds also facilitates smooth transition from one material to another, which is rather difficult with open floor plans characteristic of mainstream design.
Stylish Gray and Yellow Bathrooms Even though most people associate yellow and gray with styles that are strictly ’modern’, that is far from the truth. Gray and yellow can work equally well in bathrooms that range from styles such as eclectic and farmhouse to minimal and industrial! Those wanting to usher in a farmhouse, rustic, eclectic or even traditional style can use yellow in a far more exuberant and energetic fashion than homeowners seeking to shape a serene, contemporary bathroom. A balance between two lighter hues of gray and yellow is also a great way to create a polished, modern bathroom that looks even more splendid when filled with ample natural light.
The reason why vessel sinks are so popular among lovers of minimalism is because they have a really clean look and their design offers no room for clutter! If you use a vessel sink in combination with wall mounted faucets, you get a great addition to an already tidy bathroom, one that assures even more space and openness.

Have You Considered Pink? Pink might not really be a color of choice for most in the modern bathroom, but it surely stands out from the pack and gives the gray bathroom a snazzy, cheerful appeal. Since the color is inevitably associated with all things feminine, you cannot really escape this aspect while using it in the bathroom as well. But those daring enough to try hot pinks and bolder fuchsia will be able to fashion a modern bathroom that is anything but girlish! Look beyond the stereotype and you will easily see how this combination of gray and pink can create a cozy and comforting escape.
If you want your bathroom to be decorated in light tones, but would still like your vanity to stand out, choose a cream colored interior and pair it with a bright white vessel sink for the effect of gentle contrast. This bathroom, featured at HGTV, is smaller in size but nonetheless has a glamorous look thanks to the two vessel sinks! A stand alone sink creates a lovely purposed corner inside of your bathroom and gives off the feeling of independency and innovation. Among many benefits of having a vessel sink, one is surely having a lot of room all around the sink. Since bathrooms always need smart storage solutions, this can easily be one of them!
For the Modern Powder Room Before we move on any further, it is important to remember that orange comes in a wide range of shades and hues. Often the light peach and apricot are forgotten, and one always thinks of bright and brilliant versions of the color with a glossy glint. When using orange in the contemporary or modern powder room, do flip through all of its shades before you settle on your absolute favorite. If you still want a powder room filled with a bright orange glow, combining it with black is a sensible and stylish choice. And once Halloween or Thanksgiving rolls in, your guests will step into a powder room that seems naturally festive and bold!
Textured Walls and Pattern I was discussing wall colors with a friend recently and was surprised to hear that the first hue she could come up with for a living room accent wall was ‘burnt orange‘. Another shade that seems to be climbing up the popularity chart, burnt orange seems even more alluring in a powder room when coupled with textured walls. You need not move away from contemporary style to get this done, and combining it with white gives the small space a more relaxing aura. For those bored with the idea of repainting the powder room, wallpaper in orange provides a fun alternative that fills the room with a pattern of your choice.
It is often the smallest of details that makes a big difference to the overall appeal of a room. When it comes to the modern bathroom, there are things beyond tiles, color scheme, style and fittings that can instantly alter its ambiance without demanding too much time or effort. Much like neatly stacked toiletries, a clutter-free bathroom vanity counter and lovely lighting; neatly displayed towels give the space a touch of refinement. What seems like a minor detail goes a long way in transforming your bathroom’s visual appeal and ushers in a sense of sophistication.
