One of the biggest misconceptions about designing a space is the assumption that it must be either timeless or trendy, with no middle ground. In reality, your rooms can contain both elements in a way that is both modern and budget-friendly.
As always, there are exceptions to every rule. In this case, it‘s how much you love a particular design element. If you find a particular item that speaks to your personal sense of style and you can’t stop thinking about — go for it. Taking pride in your home will never go out of fashion.
The space afforded by the 11-foot ceilings is put to good use, with a loft converted into an entertainment area. Museum-style track lighting increases the perception that one is in an art gallery. Certain soothing details such as soft features and warm neutral colors create a grounding, casual atmosphere. There‘s also a fun dose of pop art: A handmade “Open“ sign, built from a wine crate and neon wording, hangs from the loft and illuminatesdepictions of both Queen Elizabeth of England and Chairman Mao.
When painting or wallpapering isn‘t an option, adding striped curtains may be all the stripe you need. Aim for rich colors and a floor-to-ceiling length that creates the illusion of taller ceilings.
