100 Brick Wall Living Rooms That Inspire Your Design Creativity

Brick walls and modern interiors – one would imagine that they would be at odds with one another. But the last few years have seen architects and homeowners gravitate towards the beautiful brick wall whenever they need a touch of texture, unique character and a dab of timeless charm sprinkled in the living room. For some, the exposed brick wall in the living room is an expression of the rich, historic past of the building and a blend of the past and the present. For others, it is a way to add elegance and personality to an otherwise boring interior dominated by glass and stone. No matter what your reason is, there is no doubting the fact that brick walls are here to stay.

7 Exterior Window Trim Ideas to Inspire your Next Home Project

Windows complete any home’s design. From an interior standpoint, they help let in light and allow those inside a chance to take in the view. From the exterior, windows help complete the home’s style and curb appeal.

Things That Inspire: Breakfast Rooms

For more inspirational finds, please visit www.quatrefoildesign.com

As much as I have blogged about formal dining rooms, I have barely mentioned a room that is used many times on a daily basis: the breakfast room (or casual dining area) that is usually found within or adjacent to the kitchen. I might have mentioned breakfast rooms in the context of an architectural feature, or maybe as a sidekick to a kitchen post, but I have never really focused much on breakfast rooms. I wonder why? Is it because the breakfast room can seem somewhat ordinary given its everyday use? Or maybe because my own breakfast room is shamefully neglected from a decor perspective. It could be that breakfast rooms are often lumped together with kitchens. Whatever the case may be, the homes that I have visited recently have given me a new appreciation for the function of the casual dining area,

Arranging furniture in a 16×16 foot square Living Room

The topic of arranging furniture has been a subject a lot of my readers have been interested in. Recently someone inquired about arranging furniture in a square living room. Their inquiry brought about this post, I hope you find it inspiring.

When I first started thinking about a square living room, I had to come up with a room size. I thought a 16×16 foot room did not seem too out of the ordinary, and a person with a 16×18 foot living room, or longer could take my ideas and modify them to fit their space.

To see what a 16×16 foot space looked like, I took four pieces of computer printer paper and taped them together to form a 16×16 inch square (one square inch equals one square foot). After that I marked off one inch intervals, horizontally and vertically
