Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
There is nothing quite like enjoying a lovely view outside the window as you relax indoors and catch up on your favorite reading material while sipping on a beverage of your choice. With summer here the idea of a fabulous window seat that overlooks the scenic landscape outside or connects the interior with the small rear garden or poolscape is even more tantalizing. Window seats combine the comfort of indoor seating with aesthetics of the outdoors; acting as a bridge between both the realms. They are pretty easy to install and in modern homes where large glass windows are increasingly becoming common window seats make plenty of sense.
