Showcase Design in Living Rooms

A showcase, by definition, is a glassed-in cabinet or display case for displaying delicate or valuable articles such as objects of art, trophies or memorabilia. In Kerala House Design, built-in showcases are often provided in the living room.

Following are the benefits of having a showcase-
1. An aesthetic showcase design will make an instant impression on guests giving an extra edge over the room decor.
2. Mementoes, awards, family heirlooms, curios and other memorabilia can be displayed on the showcases.
3. They are also ideal as bookshelves.

4. Antique showpieces, dinner sets, crockery etc. can also be kept in the showcase units.
5. They can also serve to protect the showpieces from dust and breakage.

A Brick Exterior with a Fresh New Look!

 

When it comes to picking paint colours for the exterior, there are SO many things to consider: roof, brick/stone, driveway, exposure, landscaping, and then, of course, you throw personal tastes into the mix and it’s no WONDER it’s a stressful process!

And this cute little rancher is the PERFECT example of ‘high needs’ as we had to accommodate ALL of the above considerations. Luckily, she had the right bones to be a beauty, she just needed a lil’ facelift!

Exterior with brick before KYlie M Edesign (2)

From their questionnaire, I knew the owners were looking for something NOT warm, NOT yellow and HOPEFULLY taupe or gray – with green undertones. I figured we could squeeze in gray, but I couldn’t accommodate the green undertone. Why? Well, the majority of the products on this property are warm – orange to be specific. Sure, there’s some purple in the roof and driveway, but the dominant colour is orange. So,

Stone Exterior Luxury Design – 6962AM | Architectural Designs

Exterior Elevations: In addition to the front exterior, your
drawing set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well.
These drawings give notes on exterior materials and finishes. Particular
attention is given to cornice detail, brick and stone accents, or other finish
items that make your home unique.

Foundation Plan: The foundation page dimensions, concrete
walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and any stepped foundation
information along with any retaining wall info (schematic only). A typical wall
section for the home is also usually included on this page (if not, it is
elsewhere in your plan set, as space allows). If your plan features a poured
concrete slab rather than a basement or crawlspace, the foundation page shows
footings and details for the slab, and includes plumbing locations.

Floor Plan(s): Exterior and interior wall framing, and
windows/doors are dimensioned. Room sizes are indicated and

design dump: house #5: family room before/after

before:

ceiling fan, brass trim and boring white tile around fireplace, cream colored carpet and *no personality*

(my little shadow…can ya guess where she gets her nickname?)

the carpet comes up, the hardwood goes down.

preparations begin for the coffered ceiling. i know…it looks weird at first, doesn’t it?

the ceiling is almost finished. we also installed a surround and wiring for a television above the fireplace.

a look towards the kitchen.

It’s the second day of the week and here we are, talking about luxury in home design. We are sure, that at one point in your lives, you have met or actually know Architects, Designers and Decorators. Maybe talked to them about how to go about in starting to create your dream house or to renovate or recreate the existing design that you have at home – whether it will be for the facade of your house, or the interiors of your home!

We would like to quote Audre Lorde when he said, “for women, poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence.” Well, we are not really talking about poetry in this list, but like in all other art form, designing our homes is like a vital thing for us since there is always something that we want to add, or something that we
