Truly an exercise in fantasy, none of us will ever live inside a clock. A soft rug for bare feet is perfect as long as you don’t stub your town on the ultralow chrome coffee table. The wood slats running across the ceiling in this space give the illusion of a much bigger room and provide an interesting texture.
Wood cornices are one of the most classic window treatment ideas, but they are often overlooked as an option in contemporary homes because of their traditional nature. Used alone, however, cornices can create a sleek, modern look. Though they can be paired with curtains, stained or painted, wood boxes are perfect for the kitchen and bath, where fabric can succumb to water damage. These are best built by a skilled carpenter for a custom fit, so they can be expensive if you aren’t handy. Cornices hide curtain hardware and blend well with luxurious detailing, like crown molding, to give your home a gracious, regal look.
A sectional. The cousin to the sofa is the sectional, as seen in this small-scale room. Sectionals usually take up more space, but when placed carefully, they can be very cozy. Notice how the rich color of this sectional anchors the otherwise ethereal scheme. One modern metal chair placed in the opposite corner is an extra seat for when company drops by. Essentially made up of two sofas placed perpendicular to each other, so that other upholstered furniture isn’t needed. As with sofas, sectionals come in various sizes. Two 84-in. (213-cm) sectional pieces together need a space that is 7 feet (213 cm) wide and 10 feet (305 cm) long, which is usually a significant portion of a room.
