Customer's Request:My house is still unfinished but I would like to have some ideas about my Open Space.The floor will completely be made of light parquet, while the walls will be white. Furniture should be modern but with warm colours and I'd like a kitchen made of light wood and with a stone counter-top.My family is composed of 4 people, for this reason the kitchen should have an extending table as well as a peninsula, in this way we will be able to easily handle everyone's needs. I'd also like to have a sofa with chaise longue and a bookcase with closed storage units as well. Lastly, I'm planning to put a fireplace on the indicated wall.For the furniture I'd rather not use a white colour, it's too cold, while I like the idea of an accent colour.The Interior Designer's Comments:Considering the position of the entrance, the kitchen will be placed on the opposite side, this allows to cross the whole living room environment before getting to the kitchen.The kitchen layout is linear and the majority of the functions/appliances will find place on the line along the wall, leaving only the under built oven in the peninsula, together with the snack-bar top. The refrigerator is going to be placed near the French window, in this way it's possible to have access to it without passing near all the other household appliances. Additional tops can be found on both sides of the basin and cook-top.Unlike a "T" shaped solution, the chosen kitchen layout makes the passage from one appliance to another much easier, since none of the elements stand in the way.Concerning the finishes we chose a natural oak wood matched with a sahara coloured glossy lacquer, in this way the kitchen will stand out from every points of view, even the most shaded ones, while the grey stone counter-top creates a pleasant contrast both with the light parquet floor and with the other finishes used.An extending round table has been placed near the wall with the two French windows; the table comes with glossy lacquered glass top while its shape (without sharp edges) makes it perfect for a chat with friends or a dinner, since all guests are equidistant from the centre and everything is close at hand.Chairs and stools with fabric seat and chromed metal structure are practical and elegant at the same time, moreover their structure finish match with the table chromed legs.On the opposite wall we inserted some shelves in terracotta glossy lacquer, partially using the niche already present on the wall, the shelves can be used both as a bookcase or as a surface for objects of everyday use.The fireplace has been located in a way to leave the right amount of space next to the sofa, and increase the value of both: the fireplace, with a convenient basket just below, matches the kitchen top thanks to its stone frame, while the sofa, made of grey fabric, recalls the chromed metal finish of the chairs and table thanks to its structure placed on its sides.We created a small plasterboard structure, with the same angle of the sofa wall, and thanks to a free standing TV stand, the TV screen is perfectly visible from the sofa, moreover all the people entering the Open Space will be stricken by the wide and bright space.The same effect couldn't simply be obtained by placing a cabinet parallel to the fireplace wall or by maintaining the wall that created the small space near the entrance; infact, including this space into the living room, we were able to place abookcase with sides and shelves in opaque lacquer and fronts in glossy lacquer, visible from the sofa as well. With this layout the entrance will result brighter thanks to the light coming from the French window.The living room is completed by a swivel chaise longue made of fabric that, unlike any other classic armchair, can rotate both towards the fireplace and the TV. This chaise longue can also be transformed in a swivel armchair thanks to a couple of hinges placed on the sides. We also added some additional accessories, together with a round rug, matching the extending table shape, and an elliptical coffee table with transparent top and chromed base.
