This way the home activities can extend up to the outside, onto your beautiful terrace.

4. Use a colour palette that conveys tranquility

It is good to decide what shades to use and combine them in the form of different materials and surfaces. In this image, we can see how the living room sofa, rug, cushions and artwork bring different tones into the space.

5. Play with different shapes

Designing spaces with different heights enriches the space and gives it prominence.

6. Integrate the dining area in the kitchen

7. Don't hide the original structure

The ceiling beams are a good decorative element, which gives character to the space.

8. Have a corner to work in at home

Despite being a corner, this doesn't mean that it isn't cosy! Utilise it. 

9. Enjoy the space available

10. Give a natural touch to your decor

Add vases of fresh flowers or dried branches to your space. Where there is no nature, there is no peace of mind.

11. Combine contemporary decor with antique objects that have sentimental value
