Why This Room Caught My Eye

9 December 2014 0


Winter time calls for cosiness – that is pretty obvious. And the epitome of a cosy nook in a home is a fireplace – at least for me. Probably because I’ve never had one, I imagine it super cosy and inviting to light up a fire on cold and gloomy winter days. Fireplaces can come in all shapes and styles and they can quickly become a room’s focal point. However, the room and the dweller’s style will define how the fireplace looks like – will it be modern, retro, classical, bohemian, eclectic, Scandinavian etc.

The above shown living room with a fireplace belong to a Parisian apartment and was designed and styled by Paris based interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch. This interior looks very contemporary and sophisticated – the clean, neutral and uncluttered room is juxtaposed by organic, round shapes and lines with the dominating use of natural materials such as wood and cork. But let me sum up the three main points that caught my eye:

  • Modern Fireplace: The fireplace is definitely a visual focus – the clean, modern lines of it make it perfect for a contemporary interior design and styling as showcased above.
  • Cork Coffee Table: The coffee table with a wooden base and an organic shaped cork tabletop is acting like a leading cast in this room – exceptionally unusual while perfectly unpretentious it is an excellent choice for this style.
  • Wooden Beams: The oh so typical wooden beams of Parisian apartments add warmth and character to any room. They frame the styling and serve as an inspiration for the usage of natural materials such as wood and cork in this room.
Does this room catch your eye too?
