Is decoration functionality overrated? the question of the week

You know that every Wednesday we raise a question of the week in Decoesfera. Sometimes they are doubts of the readers, others we look for that you speak to us about your experiences in decoration and today, for example, what we want is to initiate a small debate on the functionality in front of the creativity in decoration.

Recycling: stair rails lined with old carpets

Nowadays it is becoming very fashionable to expose the wooden floors and use less and less carpets, although some at home we always place, it is a reality that are less and less, especially in homes with a new floor or renewed according to current trends. But it is a shame to throw away those carpets that are no longer used, you have to think about options to reuse them.
Kitchen

Do you dare with a blue kitchen?

I have a clear answer to the question precisely because my kitchen is blue. It is true that the floor is second-hand and that it came like this in the pack, but it was precisely that one of the points that made me fall in love when I saw my house for the first time. I like it because it is intense blue and therefore transmits energy, but at the same time blue is a cold color and that balances the whole generating a sense of serenity.

Amazing chair, with one leg

This time it is not about transparent legs like other times, it is not a misleading image, the chair is as it is seen and three of its legs are cut so it is held only with one. The chair, which is called Cut Chair in honor of its trimmed legs is an invention of Peter Bristol and is perfectly functional no matter how incredible it may seem.

A bad idea: take pictures with the lid lifted

Although photos may seem to lie with the lid lifted, like the idealist we see on these lines, they are very frequent on the net. And I really tell you, that is a very bad idea, whether we want to sell our house or want to show it for any other reason. As we have already commented on Decoesfera on different occasions, the way in which we take the photographs of our house will have a decisive influence on the perception of it: bigger or smaller, more interesting or even brighter.

Accessories for working from bed

It is not that working from bed is something usual in my life, but at some specific time, such as some kind of lazy weekend morning, some very rainy and cold winter day or being sick to leave, but not as much as not to be able to work a little comfortably ... if I recognize that I have installed my office in the bedroom and in particular in the bed.

Learning to photograph indoors with Scott Hargis

Good or bad idea? The ladder that makes shelving

It is increasingly common to see stairs doing the work of shelves. A decorative fashion that I just did not get the point (like many others) and I want to know what your opinion is. It is also true that it has a lot to do with what you want to put into them. For example, the option of hanging the blankets on a ladder I do not see a bad idea but every time I see more stairs in living rooms and bedrooms in which to leave books and magazines, and with that I am not at all convinced.
