We were recently sent an intriguing project that we would love to share further. The LusionBloom magnetic flower vase was designed by Jonathan Morgan and has an interesting story behind: “The project began as a one of a kind vase to be used for my wedding. While planning for my wedding, I brainstormed an eye-catching magnetic vase, sure to intrigue wedding guests. Familiar with magnetic field theory, as a result of my graduate thesis in magnetic field surgical robotics that I was working on at the time, I knew that the illusionary magnetic leaning vase was scientifically viable. I began prototyping a vase to be used for my wedding and ended up with a product that amazed everyone who saw it. The LusionBloom design is currently patent pending, has been manufactured, and is now on sale for everyone“.
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
