Concrete. A favorite of eclectic and industrial styles raw concrete is durable and different. Aim for this sturdy solution when you want an edgy outside-the-box look. Using exposed hardware to adhere the concrete panels to the fireplace adds a small detail that makes a big difference.

Metal. Edgy but old school this firebox surrounded puts an old-world material in a more modern form. Mixing and matching finishes — such as with the raw wood planking metal fireplace and highly lacquered furniture here — feels eclectic and spontaneous.

This fireplace is an off-the-shelf Town & Country model from Rustic Fire Place but it came with options. “It runs on natural gas or propane with choices of colors for firebox panels and with either glass or river rock. It can be vented several different ways depending on where it is installed” says Mike Dawson of Rustic Fire Place.

This living room gets added drama with a white back-painted glass mantel and fireplace surround that replaced a traditional paneled fireplace. The glass-and-metal mantel is kept sleek thanks to minimal accessories. The key here is to vary the height of the accessories to keep the eye moving along the space.

Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!

Sort your seating. What good is a home cinema without cinema-quality seating? With a home control system and D-Box technology you can have your seating rumble and vibrate in time with the action up on the big screen! Another option to consider especially if the room will be used by children is soundproofing. Not only does soundproofing mean you can turn up the volume; it also ensures that the little ones’ shouts of excitement won’t be heard by anyone next door.

To take a less hypermodern approach place a TV in a full bookshelf system (rather than free-floating minimalist shelves) to create a more transitional look. Encasing the TV in custom framing helps it blend even further into the casework so only the essential screen is visible (and not shiny brand names). Keep in mind that a frame will block the remote receiver so you may need a device to reroute the signal from a receiver tucked on a nearby shelf.

Faux fur never looked this cool. Add this pouf to a nursery or a living room for an extra-warm touch.

I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.
