Modern living room ideas: why it is important to have a tastefully furnished environment

idee soggiorno moderno

The living room is the most lived environment of the house, it is the room where guests are welcomed, where tea is served, a movie is watched and one relaxes on his own or in company. Each piece of furniture is chosen to integrate a part of the lifestyle that feels closer, nothing should be left to chance.

Ideal for a living room with a dark floor and exposed brick walls in shades of white / gray.

Face to face with a passionate stylist and her house, full of lights, suggestions and wonderful mirrors

fashion-stylist

“She will be called Chiara because she will bring light with her smile”.

So my name was chosen, looking for a light that I follow every day.
Nomen omen, it is said, and I realized how true it was one evening when the electricity had gone away and to raise the sad mood, I opened an old wardrobe containing my grandmother’s clothes and accessories and I improvised a candle light catwalk, forcing the whole family to participate. Furs and spangles have given us a smile, and I immediately understood what my vocation would be.

 

In the beginning, clothes for me had that power: to make the atmosphere shine, to brighten the moods. Through the sequins on the clothes of the dolls and in the dressing room, during the shopping sessions after a bad day. The truth is that they still do it, but sometimes I find it hard to remember it. When you can transform your passion into your work, initially it may seem like a dream come true, but it can happen to lose sight of why you started, what drove you to do it. It is there that you need to find yourself and the motivations that have prompted you to start.
But my name is Chiara for a reason and, when needed, I know how to re-balance the areas of light and bring joy. On the job, of course: that of the fashion stylist is a constant commitment to the pursuit of the perfect outfit, the trendy décolleté, the detail capable of illuminating the wearer and giving an added value to a shot, a video, a happening.
And then, even and above all, at home: it is here that I can devote myself to my areas of light and rediscover the harmony that I miss between one shooting and another.
That’s why one of my favorite purchases is the Tiffany coffee table.

Those handles seem to indicate that someone will bring it to you, covered with sweets, like a tray. That someone is me: I spend my days available to models and make-up artists, but when I get home, what I want is a treat for me.

My house is bright and it is not only a question of windows, gimmicks with draperies and strategic calculations of the golden hour, but it is also thanks to the mirrors that I have carefully placed in strategic corners of the home. Perfect to reflect not only the sun’s rays, but also the smiles of everyone who comes to visit me.
Break hit me at first glance. I like it because it is split but compact, and this dual nature seems fitting: even I am “in pieces” when I come back from work, but I always keep myself together, I never let myself go. And just a glimpse to its frame is enough to remind me of it.

 

My favorite piece? I have no doubt, it is Clara, the leather chair with steel legs. It intrigued me first of all for the composition and convinced with its color: a tip of very elegant cobalt blue, chosen by the greatest painters, such as Renoir and Van Gogh, and because it owes its strength to what has been defined as its strength, or “its superior brilliance that knows how to overwhelm all the other nuances.”

But it is also its beautiful name that has persuaded me, so similar to mine … impossible not to notice it. I thought it would welcome me after a day of running between sets, it would be my daily shelter. And so it was.

The spotlessness and purity of white, but also the elegance and depth of black. They blend in the strong and shiny surface of Supermarble, a special material that guarantees a sophisticated and minimalist décor in style, solid and resistant in practicality.

bontempi supermarmo

Of marble we know the ethereal refinement, that symbolized the earthly perfection in the Greek and then neoclassical sculptures. We know its prestige, that transpires from the architecture of the rich houses of the Venetian merchants. Now let’s imagine a shiny, brilliant, compact and smooth stone just like marble, in shape and color. And let’s imagine that this stone has all the brilliance, elegance, refinement of the marble. Everything, except its fragility. Supermarble is an innovative material, unique in its kind, that combines the extraordinary characteristics of marble and transforms it into something modern and functional, without losing that unmistakable stately allure typical of marmaròn.

Supermarble is born from the brilliant combination of glass and porcelain stoneware, covered with a perfect marble print that incorporates the shine and natural striations of the most precious stone in the décor world. It can become a large table for the living room, a decorative element for every room in the house. Resistant to temperatures, impacts, chemical and organic substances. Durable and malleable in all external and internal environments. Its colors accurately reflect the color range of marble stones: from gray, delicately silvered, to the Noir Desir, streaked with gold and warm like the earth tones, passing through the pure Staturesque white and the pearly white of the onyx.

Preferring Supermarble is a smart, cunning, intelligent and even eco-friendly choice, because it is recyclable. Furnishing, decorating, embellishing your home with a piece of this magical element, comfortable yet sophisticated, is the first step to live with practicality, surround yourself with pure beauty and breathe serenity, peace and harmony.

The uniqueness of Supermarble according to Bontempi

Glamour

tavolo glamour bontempi

The Bontempi Glamour table is a precious table available in circular Supermarble that rests on a lacquered steel structure. Solid, resistant, stable. The anthracite black / gray color, streaked with pure white, and the glossy, compact and perfect surface, make it a unique object of décor, as well as a useful and functional piece of furniture. It combines harmoniously with chairs and armchairs upholstered in leather or fabric, in shades of teal, ultramarine or purple. To complete the furnishing are other decorative elements made of Supermarble in different shades, tone on tone, positioned on the surface of the table to create a balance of shapes and colors that becomes one.
The ideal choice for a classy living room, with clean lines, minimal in shape but refined in style. For those who love the design but also the durability of each individual décor object.

Versus

versus bontempi

The Versus table by Bontempi is a practical fixed or extendable table, square or rectangular, with legs in solid wood. Made of sturdy black Supermarble with golden stripes, whose shine becomes even more valuable if placed in stark contrast to a light wood parquet floor, such as Canadian maple, or darker, like walnut, both products equipped with a comfortable, cozy, warm allure. The most balanced combination is that of chairs or armchairs in burgundy leather and in shades of amaranth red, because the contrast of materials and colors is the stylistic channel that most enhances the noble character of this splendid Supermarble.
The perfect choice for a bon ton but not haughty living room, minimal chic never pretentious. For those who love contemporary taste but do not give up practicality.

Senso bontempi supermarmo

Password: total white. White on white, the Senso table by Bontempi, made of white staturesque Supermarble covertly streaked with gray and black, is the décor touch that gives harmony and balance to a large and luminous room. The extendable rectangular shape is practical, comfortable and modern; the surface and legs in white staturesque Supermarble allow to enlarge the view of the kitchen or living room. The ideal is to create an optical effect of light and shadow play, positioning mirrors of different sizes on the main wall. Glass vases and design objects to adorn the table, bright and tidy.
The perfect choice for a room to be illuminated, expanded, aired. For those who love the light and the sense of order and peace. To make room for positive emotions at any time of the day.

 

When Home becomes the most beautiful place in the world, even for a birthday party (surprise, but not too much).

His birthday would have been that Sunday. 10 years. 10. By now it was getting big, Matteo. He had spent the whole day fantasizing about his birthday party: all his friends would have a lot of fun, eating cheese pizza and playing outside in the garden, at the end of May the sun always shines; he would have received gifts to be unwrapped like candies, and he would have eaten his favorite cake: the vanilla ring-shaped cake covered with icing and sugar, the delight that his mother prepared with love. Yes, that’s right, his birthday would have been a fantastic day. He just had to ask his parents for permission to organize the party.

Tuesday, 8.00 am

Matteo wakes up happy and perky, goes down to the living room and finds his mother preparing the table for breakfast: coffee is only for adults, Matteo knows it well, and even if in a few days he will be big too, he is happy to “Be satisfied” with the tasty apple tartlets, hot and crunchy, just come out of the oven just for him. They are there, on the table, in a ceramic dish. “Good morning honey, are you ready for school?”. Matteo is very ready, just … He has a question.

“Mom, Sunday is my birthday. I’m 10 years old! 10! Can I have a party here at home? Please!”.

The tea kettle is whistling. The Lady, who still wears a pretty purple silk dressing gown, goes into the kitchen, fills the cup with hot water and places it on the large wooden table in the spacious living room. “No, I’m sorry, honey, we’ll be busy on Sunday. No party, this time. But out of curiosity, what would you have wanted to do at your party? “. Matteo is very disappointed, sad and even a little angry: why could not he have his birthday party? However, he responds politely: “Mom, I would love to have the colored balloons all over the house. And I would like to invite all my friends from school and football. And I would like to play outside in the garden, that you know, it’s good weather these days. Cannot I have my party? “. But it was late, mom had to rush to work.

Matteo does not give up: he will try again tomorrow.

Wednesday, 7.00 am

Now that he notices it, the table in the hall is very spacious. It is made of dark wood, as his father says “my little jewel, in solid walnut”, or “In short, something like that”, thinks Matteo, who for the first time is already awake at this time. He is in the living room, sitting on the beige chair Mum had wanted to combine with the dark table, and looks at the wooden surface of that solid, massive table. He reflects:

“In fact it is really great … There could also be trays with pizzas, and focaccias, and maybe even pretzels, those delicious and very salty”.

Today is a good day. I will ask dad for permission to have a party.

8.00 am

“Matteo, what are you doing already up? What a miracle!”. Matteo’s father does a strange job, “he creates advertising, he’s creative. He will definitely approve the idea of the party!” the almost-big-small Matteo thinks. “Daddy, look, can we have my birthday party on Sunday?” The father smiles at him, strokes his head and goes to pour his coffee. Back in the living room, he puts the cup on the jute napkin, bought during a trip to Marrakech.

“No Matteo, not this time, we are busy on Sunday. But out of curiosity, if we decided to have a party, what would you have liked to eat? “.

Matteo does not believe his ears: why not? What is there so special to do on Sunday? “Ugh. I wanted cheese pizza, focaccia and pretzels “.
And Dad, too, goes to the office. Mom takes him to school, and all is silent.

Thursday, 8.30 am

“Matteo, this way we’ll be late! Why are you still in bed? “. Mum opens the door of the room. The walls are light blue, and silver-colored adhesive stars gleam on the ceiling. They are a gift by Davide, his best friend. “Mom, can we have my party on Sunday?” asks Matteo, who peeks out from under the bed covers, still wearing his colored cotton pajamas. “No, honey, we’re busy on Sunday. But out of curiosity, if we decided to have the party, what gift would you like? “.
Little Matteo goes sulky to the living room, sits in the anthracite leather chair and sadly leans his head on the solid wood table. He dreams with open eyes the gift he would most want for his birthday: a bicycle. His first real big bike, like that of his parents – or almost – red, his favorite color. “The red bicycle”.

Matteo spends the following days drawing red bicycles and slices of pizza on sheets of paper, that he then leaves around the house. So it’s Sunday, it’s his birthday. But that morning Matteo does not want to get up. No cake, no party.

The doorbell of the front door rings. On the contrary, it shouts. Nobody seems to go to open though. It rings and shouts a second time. Matteo decides to go and see who he is there but, hey, where are his parents? He runs to open the door, who knows if that is also in solid walnut, and … “SURPRISE!”. In the courtyard there are Davide, Lorenzo, Simone, Andrea, Stefano, and also Omar, whom he has not seen for a long time. His friends are all there, with a package in their hands, someone also has a soccer ball and candy bags. “Happy birthday!” His friends shout. WOW! The children go to the living room and voilà, there are colorful balloons everywhere, and on the big dark table are paper trays full of pizzas with cheese, scones with olives, pretzels and … Mom and Dad are there, with a couple of small steel keys in their hands. “In the yard there is your gift, tied with a chain, these are the keys. But be careful, go slowly and stay on the right side of the road! “, his father  recommends. Matteo cannot believe it, he had his beautiful birthday party, his friends, his racy cheese pizza and focaccia, his first red bicycle like the big ones and … “But there’s also a vanilla ring-shaped cake! How did you know I wanted it? I did not tell you! ”

Mom and dad smile.

“Happy Birthday darling!”.

The sponge cake covered with white icing and colored sugar balls sits there, still and intact – even if only for a short time – on that beautiful solid walnut table. And that living room, Home, really seems the most beautiful place in the world.
