It's an old living room opening to a garden, made in the 70s with some wood brought from Anatolia. We have changed the mirrors, re-polished wood, removed some of the cabinet doors so we could use them as book shelves.

We like this ideas from San Interior Design, which shows how one could gut out a bedroom closet to be used for the purpose of creating an inset bedroom home theater setup. Many homes these days come with an excess of closet/storage options, so why not take advantage of the extra space and reconsider it to house and hide a television and components? Something like the Tria Self System or larger Stolmen Flat Panel Mount from IKEA could be the foundation of your home theater in a closet setup. Consider installing a bathroom fan to ventilate all your components, lest you overheat your setup. The best thing about a setup like this is you could keep doors to shut away the whole system while not in use, but with careful planning and hidden wires running through a wall or stand, the setup should be decor benign even if no doors are used, as shown in the first photo.
This apartment is located in the center of Moscow - only a five minute walk from the Red Square and Kremlin. It is located in a historic building and its surface is 65 square meters/700 square feet. My clients were a young couple - they travel a lot and wanted me to recreate a mixture of French and Scandinavian looks. I used lots of natural materials - the stump table was handmade, the headboard was covered with a linen slip cover, large windows were treated with semi transparent linen curtains that created a very light, relaxing and cozy feel. I didn't want to introduce lots of color, as this apartment has a very serene and relaxing feel and I didn't want to interrupt it. Despite its central location, the building is hidden in a very quiet corner, surrounded by lush vegetation. The walls were painted white to give the room additional space and light. The bedroom has very long square shape, so I decided to correct it using the mirrors - we attached several of them in the a sort of abstract mosaic. The living room was decorated with the photographs of the buildings that are located in the same street as this apartment.

Q: We just bought a 1930s tudor, and can't figure out how to layout our living room. The room has lots of openings as well as a fireplace. Should we mount the television over the fireplace, keep it on the wall where the previous owners had it, or something else? I wish scrapping the tv altogether was an option, but my husband won't oblige. We'd like to maximize our seating options without creating disjointed space or having to squeeze by furniture to get from room to room.

We're big fans of copper-both the rosy shine of new copper and the blue and green shades it takes on when it's old and oxidized. Too much of it might look a little garish, but judicious copper accents can really warm up a kitchen or bathroom. Our copper-lined bathroom shelf and kitchen cabinets; design by Bonnie Bridges and construction by Hughes/McGinnis Builders. Large copper fixtures like sinks and range hoods can be prohibitively expensive, but lining a cabinet or a shelf with a sheet of hammered copper is a cheaper, simpler way to bring a slice of copper into your kitchen or bath. Small appliances, accessories, and hardware are increasingly available in copper finishes too. This particular set has been sold, but we found similar canisters for sale on ebay. Here's some more copper kitchen inspiration from AT:. Look! Copper Tubing Makes Great Pot Rack.
