LIVING AND DINING ROOMS
STORAGE NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED carefully here – this is a well-used area in the home, so it’s important to create a relaxed rather than cluttered environment.
Books often form the bulk of items that we keep and want to display. Consider shelving one entire wall for a bold and ordered look or think about siting them elsewhere – perhaps in a bedroom or hallway – which will allow you to have a calmer living area. Colour-theming covers may be a step too far for some but a well-ordered display is great to look at and makes the collection easy to use. Cutting-edge technology can be visually jarring in a country setting, so contemplate hiding your television in a purpose-built cupboard.
