NEW LIVING ROOM
FOR JAN AND KRIS



LAYOUT EXPLANATION

 

DESIGN:  KRISTINA SCHIRMER

 

 

MY HUSBAND JAN AND I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT, VERY CLOSE TO THE QUARRY LAKES, WITH A GREAT VIEW FROM OUR LIVING ROOM. WE LOOK STRAIGHT INTO A BIG PINE TREE WHICH COVERS THE LARGEST PART OF THE WINDOW. ON THE RIGHT SIDE WE SEE THE TWINKLING BLUE OF ONE OF THE QUARRY LAKES IN FRONT OF THE MELLOW NILES RIDGE.

 

THE ROOM IS NOT VERY BIG WITH ITS 266 SQF, AND THE TREE CAST A SHADOW ON THE LIVING ROOM. THAT WE DO NOT HAVE SO MUCH LIGHT IN THE WINTER MONTH IN THIS AREA,

ESPECIALLY BECAUSE WE MISS THE SECOND ROW OF WINDOWS ABOVE - LIKE IN THE MASTER BEDROOM - , BECAUSE THE ROOF ON THIS SIDE IS LOWER.

BESIDES THAT THE LIVING ROOM IS FACING MORE OR LESS TO THE NORTH.

 

OUR LIVING ROOM IS AN OPEN AREA – OPEN TO THE KITCHEN AND ENTRANCE AREA HOW THE PICTURES SHOWS.

 

REQUIREMENTS

 

-          NATURAL LIGHT IN THE APARTMENT ( IF THE APARTMENT WOULD BE OURS, WE WOULD BUILD IN A SKYLIGHT)

SOLUTION: MIRRORS, WHICH REFLECT THE NATURAL LIGHT AND LET THE SPACE APPEAR LARGER.

 

-          SPACE FOR ALL OF OUR BOOKS AND MONTHLY JOURNALS > SHELVES

SOLUTION: MANY LARGE SHELVES IN THE UPPER ZONE OF THE ROOM.

 

-          SOME STORAGE FOR OTHER THINGS (GUESTS BEDDING AND BLANKETS)          

SOLUTION: 3 LARGE BOXES ON CASTERS UNDERNEATH THE SOFA.

 

-          A TEMPORARY DINING TABLE, WHICH WE CAN USE, IF WE HAVE FRIENDS OVER FOR DINNER IN OUR APARTMENT

SOLUTION: ONE LARGE FOLDED DINING TABLE WHICH IS A PIECE OF THE WALL DESIGN ABOVE THE BAR WHEN IT IS NOT IN USE.

 

COMFORTABLE BAR STOOLS (INDUSTRIAL STYLE)

SOLUTION: 4 BAR STOOLS ARE PLACED UNDER THE BAR WHEN NOT IN USE.

-          LIGHTS IN THE COUCH AREA (READING)

SOLUTION: THREE CROSS PENDANTS

 

-          A VERY COMFORTABLE COUCH WITH MANY PILLOWS, WHERE YOU REALLY ENJOY READING A BOOK, OR SIT WITH FRIENDS AND TALK ABOUT PROJECTS WHILE HAVING A REALLY STRONG ESPRESSO ;)

-          A CONCRETE COUCH TABLE ON RUBBER CASTERS

-          A VERY SOFT,LIGHT COLOURED (WHITE) WALL 2 WALL CARPET (NATURAL MATERIAL, LIKE WOOL), BECAUSE WE LOVE WALKING BAREFOOT AT HOME
