This year it is all about creating a new mixture of styles with the help of modern contrasting flooring, geometric area rugs or well placed light sources. Blinds, vertical or horizontal, will add a contemporary feel of industrial space to the comfortable living room. Quality furnishings and decorative elements can be combined to create an inviting living room interior design. Restored antique furniture items find their place in the trends of 2011, together with bold colour blends.
If you‘re shopping for sheets, you may be surprised by the number of choices, both in terms of design and quality. And if you‘re on a tight budget, you may find your hunt for bed sheets to be even more challenging. Rest assured, you don’t have to sleep on sheets that aren‘t comfy. Between end-of-season sales and a range of new eye-catching options, shopping for bedding has never been more fun. Below we share a few tips and pointers to consider as you check out the wide array of possibilities awaiting you
SOL (short for “sustained organic living”) offers luxury sheets and pillow cases crafted from Fair Trade Certified fine long-staple organic cotton. Color offerings are kept simple in shades of white, ivory and blue. Only eco-friendly, low-impact, water-based dyes are used, and products are recyclable and biodegradable. Choose from plain, pleated and hemmed styles.
To accent this palette, bring in a hint of brass, and don’t shy away from deep wooden tones for serving pieces, chairs and bowls. White marble can add contrast to the darker hues, as well as a sense of elegance. So serve up a delicious cheese plate on a marble board, and don’t forget the figs! More is more when it comes to this palette
When buying sheets, also consider the weave. Do some quick research to determine which type of weave (sateen, percale, etc.) is best for you. For example, percale is known for its refreshing, crisp feel, making it a great fit for those living in warm-weather climates.

Cozy Contemporary Bedrooms We feature smart home renovations, additions, extensions and revamps on almost a daily basis here at Decoist. Many of these projects not only see a complete transformation of the interior, its ambiance and style, but also old attics, sheds, garages and unwanted extensions being done away with in favor of contemporary extensions. It is wood drawn from these structures that can revitalize your bedroom by transforming itself into a stunning accent wall. Sure, reclaimed wood does need some work, and you will always find some scrap and unusable material in every pile. But be patient and let your old home become a part of your new bedroom!
Adding Black to the Mix A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
