    Home design ideas: Decorating a living room in an open floor plan

    John Bradfield’s friends hired him to turn the blank living room in their historic South End triplex into a warm, bright, and inviting space. “The owners are creative and intellectual, so I wanted to make it interesting and artful, with a mix of forms and layers of textural finishes,” the designer says. The layout also had to remain open enough for easy circulation among adjacent spaces. With the living room transformed into a cocktail party haven, Bradfield has moved onto designs elsewhere in the home. “Once you decorate one room, there’s a domino effect,” he says. “This living room was the catalyst.” 1 The Phase Design chair offers interest to…

    Tricks To Decorating Your Living Room For A Quick Style Boost

    How to decorate your living room? There are many options: buy unusual lamps and pieces of furniture, put up floor vases and clocks, buy a beautiful carpet, fill the aquarium with goldfish, etc. Choose The Right Furniture Whether you are starting with bare walls or deciding to update the interior, it is important to be very sensible and impartial in assessing the furniture that you have – how comfortable it is and how it fits into the space.

    How to Marie Kondo Your WFH Space, If It’s Taken Over Your Living Room

    Working from home has completely changed our living spaces. Whether we’ve spent time hunting for the most comfortable chairs, daydreaming about Louis Vuitton’s compact secretary desk, or scrounging for any work table that won’t take up too much square footage, we have all made adjustments—some having a less than ideal impact on our home’s design. Marie Kondo, the patron saint of minimizing the stress of interiors, is here to help, though. Just as many of us were settling into our newfound home offices in April of 2020, Kondo’s most recent book, Joy at Work, was released. The question of a tidy workspace has become much more pressing since Kondo wrote…

    Fall Home Design: 20 memorable NW Living moments (plus 5 bonus bathtubs!)

    THEY FLASH LIKE FIREFLIES: vivid, unbidden, briefly flitting mini-memories — sometimes individually, sometimes in a swarm, always somewhat magically. Out of the dim twilight of that nowhere bridging Right This Second and Some Other Time, they materialize: a home. A room. A setting. A conversation. All originate from one dusty-but-apparently-not-totally-rusty attic of the past: NW Living, the architecture and design feature that was a weekly staple in these pages for decades. It makes sense, I guess, that those stories, and places, and memories, would linger. When people invite you into their homes — whether it’s through a tattered screen door at Grampa’s lopsided fishing cabin or a mahogany masterpiece framed…

    Fall Home Design: Welcome to our not-quite-a-coffee-table-book collection of NW Living highlights

    IT’S CROSSED MY MIND a jillion times that it’d be cool to pull together a coffee-table book of NW Living highlights. Or maybe an entire encyclopedic series. (It would take an extra-trenta coffee table to contain all the NW Living stories we’ve published over the decades.) Just in the time I carried the NW Living mantle — from fall 2015 until we retired the feature in June 2020 — we (and, by extension, all of you) were warmly welcomed into more than 200 distinctly designed local homes. (And wow; did we see some awesome mantels.) Add in all the other writers, all the photographers, all the homes over all the…
