Living room decoration: space, function and aesthetics
The place of decoration in interior design is redefined and takes very different forms. In general, we call "decoration", objects that have only one function: to decorate. In the minimalist design, the decoration is often absent or very little present. She is also the last to work. But what is "decoration" in reality? In the following lines, we will try to expand the sometimes restricted notion of "decoration" by making you discover our gallery of objects, to buy or do it yourself. They are more than decorative pieces, they are objects both aesthetic and practical.
Living room decoration: minimalism
Spring and summer are associated with flowers, the sun and bright, bright colors. To bring back the light spirit of the beautiful days in your living room, decorate your furniture with flowers and plants in pink, white and green. Bouquet flowers always attract attention with their natural charm, but unfortunately they do not last long. The flower pots, especially the succulents, will last a long time if you take enough care.
