Kitchens. When considering marble for your kitchen, countertops and table tops are the obvious places to begin and without a question, will bring a whole new look and feel to your cooking area. As you can see from below, it isn't just about adding marble. The details in the installation and the surrounding accents are what will take your marble kitchen over the top. Be sure to consider beveled edges for the marble, types of sinks, surrounding surfaces, and cabinetry to compliment the marble. Add your own signature pieces such as marble mosaic tiles to the walls, your table top, or even the back splash area. Even think about a custom marble hot pan holder. The possibilities are endless. The key to a beautiful dream marble kitchen is to consider the whole picture and sweat the details, not just the obvious large surface areas.
Armoires, are available in an enormous number of sizes styles and configurations. They can be used for combination storage-tv on top, table linens in the drawers, or clothing if the armoire is in the bedroom. Moving beyond furniture, screens either decorative or purchased from the home store, will hide work spaces and storage. Architectural elements such as columns or bricks can be used for display, as shelving and to hide 'uglies.' Plants, real or really good artificial plants, add interest and can be used to hide an awkward corner. If these are lit with some of the new halogen spots they make a really beautiful accent corner and brighten a room.
One word of advice: if you fall in love with a piece of furniture just because it is beautiful, buy it. Everything in your home doesn't have to be practical and a truly beautiful piece of furniture is something you will enjoy for years. Use it as a focal point, light it and decorate it and don't worry if it doesn't have half a dozen uses. These pieces become your treasures and you will move them form place to place and design rooms around them.
* Mediterranean: This home decorative style conjures the Italian and French seaside. Think warm yellows and earth tones, as well as simple patterns set off by blue and gold accents. Chunky, natural wood tables fit right in, as do patterns of sunflowers or ships. * Oriental: As the name implies, this style invokes the simple and sleek lines of the Orient. Less is more with this look, so choose pieces like teak and lacquered tables, armoires and coffee tables sparingly. Accessorize with Oriental rugs, silk prints and pictures of dragons or Japanese seascapes.
Flooring too is an important aspect of the living rooms. If you are thinking of white flooring tiles or marble flooring, good; because the room will look bigger than it actually is. Even if the living room is big enough there is no harm in fixing these tiles as a bigger looking room is welcome anyways. Try to keep the rooms clutter free as much as possible. Putting up picture frames which compliment the black and white theme of the living room is a good idea.
