Take one console table and...

Console tables are versatile pieces of furniture. Most often they are used as sofa tables, but such a narrow application limits  this amazing piece of furniture which can  add interest, character and serviceability to many rooms in your home.  A little creativity will turn this long, leggy table into a showpiece.   You can keep your application simple or you can layer to your hearts delight.  It all depends on the look you want to achieve.

Keep it Simple

 Lauderdale By the Sea Condo modern living room
Stark simplicity has its advantages if you have an interestingly shaped/coloured table.  The lines/colour alone can be the statement.  Add a little detail to the top and you've completed the job. I love the starkness of the black table and accompanying mirror in this very contemporary white and black room.

Keeping the display  on the top of this table simple in colour and quantity allows the table to be the design statement. Design tip:  paint out the vent under the table. It is much too obvious.

 Create extra storage

In smaller rooms a console table with or without a shelf can solve some of your storage problems.  Of course the trick is to come up with interesting ways to do this. Stacked trunks and suitcases are a creative solution as are baskets.

The use of white unifies this arrangement  while the addition of green livens things up and creates a soft contrast. 

Store  extra seating

Tuck away extra seating by filling the space under the table with upholstered ottomans or 18 inch cubes.

I love this arrangement.  The ottoman is a good size for the space under the table.  There should be breathing room on both sides.  Stuffing in an oversized piece  will not give you the polished look you want. There is a nice play of dark against light and the arrangement on the table top works very well in terms of colour, scale and texture.

 Don't let limited space stop you from having an interesting and inviting  arrangement in a foyer or entrance.  By keeping the line of a table simple and using a monochromatic scheme you can have a lot going on in a limited space. It's also refreshing to see this combination with light wood.

Not many people would consider a console table as a night table, but this works very well because it is smaller in scale and the stool tucks in nicely .  Just pull it out and it's ready for use. The green looks so refreshing next to the wood tones.

When you place a table behind a sofa you can still think about it as a place to store extra seating.

Paired chairs on either side of  a console table also work well.   To flank a table with chairs you need roughly 6-8 feet of linear space. The scale of the chairs and the table should be in harmony.  A bulky table would overwhelm  smaller chairs.

This same arrangement can be used behind a long sofa.

 And sometimes one chair is best especially when the table is near a corner.

Bedroom-Naturalistic Interior Design Ideas

When you are searching for a different interior design idea to transform your bedroom, you might want to consider naturalistic interior design ideas. With the 'green' design movement, many natural materials are popular in modernist-style decorating which includes everything from sustainable and renewable materials like bamboo flooring to pebble-tiled floor tiles and natural rock walls or fireplaces. Incorporating naturalist interior design ideas might be easier than you think with faux leather, natural stone tiles and the use of natural lighting is a way to save energy costs.

If you have seen some of the top naturalistic interior design ideas that are offered in uniquely designed homes on the Internet, it isn't unusual to see a tree growing through a skylight tube fixture as the focal show-piece of the bedroom. You might find an architect that built a bedroom over an existing creek bed in contemporary luxury homes, but you can replicate this appearance with a dry creek bed in a corner sitting area or by incorporating a desktop fountain or water garden.

While these types of innovative decorating schemes might be a little more than you have in mind for your naturalistic bedroom interior design, you can incorporate live plants, faux leather head-boards and flooring made from bamboo, quite easily. Strategically placed wild potted grasses can be natural window treatments that allow light in when you want it and give you privacy when you don't. Natural wood artifacts can add interest to your bedroom as sculpture or artwork replacements, while simple 'water-walls' can offer the relaxing sound of moving water, which can lower stress or help you rest better.

When you start thinking about naturalistic interior design ideas, there are a number of ways to incorporate this style in your bedroom. Consider the use of a faux leather sleigh bed, natural cotton bedding or seascape-inspired table accessories, such as a handsome wooden bowl with natural seashells from a special trip to the beach. If you pick a neutral wall colour from the earth tones, you can add plants, interesting items from nature, such as dried flowers in natural clay vases or pottery or use creativity to glue twigs into folding privacy screens to be used for window treatments.

Your bed might be the most important feature in the bedroom, but there are plenty of naturalistic interior design ideas that are perfect for adding serenity and uniqueness. If you are not sure about the components you should consider, you might consult the places where you shop for your bedroom furnishings. Most likely, they will have design ideas of all kinds, but today's contemporary and modern bedrooms might easily become part of the "green" decorating design movement by using faux leather beds rather than actual animal hides.

Whether you are saving the environment by using faux leather beds for natural texturing or you are incorporating your own "green-scaping" with potted plants in a corner rock garden display, you can use nature to inspire your decorating scheme and design a relaxing retreat to get a good night's sleep. Today's bedrooms themes are taking advantage of naturalistic interior design ideas and it is a design idea that is earth-friendly, while offering serenity in your private retreat.
