Hello, everyone! I’m so excited to be here at Design Confidential with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It’s a great place to find lots of interior design inspiration including beautiful home décor ideas from appealing foyer lights to fabulous wall art and much more.
Today, we’re going to take a look at eight rooms that are at once stylish and functional, showing how well design can work when furnishings are chosen based upon ways a space will be used from day to day. Please enjoy!
The foyer or entryway of a home is a versatile space, one that might simply function as a beautifully decorated passage way, but can also be furnished to meet the needs of a busy family. Here, the foyer is turned into a tiny sitting room.
In this chic white living room, furnishings have been chosen to create a conversation area in front of the fireplace for family gatherings or entertaining friends.
Much thought was given to the way this master suite would function. In the end, two seating areas were included in the design. The soft color palette creates a retreat-like atmosphere, while the contemporary pendant light is simply beautiful.
Obviously, the kitchen is one room in the house where planning for functionality is of the utmost importance. Here, one unexpected additions, a convenient beverage cooler, is one of the homeowner’s favorite elements.
This slightly masculine home office is at once beautiful and functional with its spacious layout and meticulously planned storage. I love the soft houndstooth patterned rug.
This spacious traditional white bath with pops of red in its Chinoiserie elements is large enough to allow for inclusion of an armchair and garden stool.
With walls of windows on three sides, this lofty family room with a stunning view needed a lot of thoughtful planning before furnishings were chosen. In the end, pulling the carefully chosen seating pieces in from the window walls and onto a large area rug worked beautifully.
Lots of planning goes into furnishing baby’s first room. Here it was decided that in addition to the crib and storage pieces, a cozy window seat and comfy rocker and ottoman were important for Mom and Dad. Drum pendant lighting is a great choice for this nursery design. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
