Form and Function
“The particular relationships of ceiling, wall, and floor; of door and passageway, of window and roof; and of the furnishings within the built frame—all factor into the physical and emotional impact of a given place,” explains designer and architect Ray Booth in Evocative Interiors (Rizzoli, 2018). Open up a small space by keeping the majority of the room white and add in pops of color like turquoise and fuchsia. Low ceilings can become playful with adjustable architectural lighting. Create an intimate conversation area by using curved seating like these velvet club chairs and sectional sofa. Don’t let unused space go to waste— have fun with small side tables in various sizes and media; they not only make perfect spots to showcase your pottery collection but also provide guests with a place to put down their drinks.
