A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
When pairing a bright pastel such as Lemon Sorbet one needs to think closely about the other colors it’s paired with. Darker and more subdued colors tone the yellow down and therefore make it seem less bright and easier on the eye. Here Lemon Sorbet is paired with a dark, rich wood, a bright raspberry for a pop of color and a soft, cool grey. On the ceiling is Blue Ice, a perfect complimentary color that that brings out the room’s architectural details. Without these other colors and textures to offset the brightness of the Lemon Sorbet might be too bright for this room.
Whether you love the retro metal arc floor lamp with the big lampshade that was popular in the 1970’s gracing everyone’s living room or you prefer the introduction of aluminum into wall and pendant fixtures of the late 1960’s – lighting was an integral part of retro furniture decor. Look to your favorite lighting manufacturers for lighting reproductions for your ceiling, walls, floor in every retro style imaginable.
