Because dark colors can make a room feel more closed in than welcoming, they only work in a living room like this that has plenty of natural light. The contrast in the wood flooring helps, too. For a creative answer to the standard sofa, this urban living room uses upholstered platforms and movable pillows that allow whoever is sitting to create their own comfortable posture on the platforms or the floor. On the other end of the spectrum we have this light wood and white living room. It's on the small side but plenty big for a cozy night at home.
Admittedly this shower head is of minuscule proportions, but just look at how serene it's sun dappled surroundings are. Another beautiful open air bathing area–though you had better be good at stepping stones if you forget your flip-flops, journeying in and out of the tub over that harsh pebble floor could be painful!
We continue sharing ideas for decorating your personal feminine spaces, and today we'll have a look at bathrooms. A bathroom is like a sanctuary: there you wash all the cares away, relax taking a bath, enjoy your home spa procedures and so on.

Bathrooms lend themselves to personalization due to the function they serve. A bathroom should be a place where an individual, alone and at rest, feels completely comfortable, content and calm, no matter what image the greater space endeavors to project. Here are the ones that caught our attention lately.
A separate feature holds the hardware and doubles as the perfect place to set a book or glass of wine – very usable, and a pleasure to look at.

What's characteristic of feminine coffee tables is that they very often double as ottomans, which is a smart idea. Choose a cute upholstered ottoman and coffee table in one in some girlish color like pink, blush, lavender or just white, it will create an inviting ambience. To add a glam feel to your space, choose a glass coffee table with gilded legs and framing. If you have a modern living room, why not try trendy and edgy acrylic coffee tables? They can have metallic corners for a chic look or be just sheer and seem to disappear in the air.
When it comes to sleep, comfort is not a luxury, it's a necessity. For many, finding the right mattress can be the difference between waking up well-rested and “stay out of my way, there literally isn't enough coffee in the world.”
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard.
