Accessorizing with vintage winter sporting equipment, such as skis, snowshoes, a sled and skates, gives a rustic cottage appearance to a North Carolina front porch decorated by blogger Amy Buchanan of AttaGirlSays. The sports equipment joins yard sale finds, including the table, vintage wooden toolbox and the dresser frame.
Home decor blogger Amy Buchanan started with a yard sale table and layered in finds, such as a tobacco stick star, a pinecone garland and a frame from an old dresser. Ticking ribbon and wooden Christmas trees painted to look like old grain sacks are in keeping with the farmhouse theme. "I love collecting vintage items throughout the year, then mixing them together to create rustic and farm-style vignettes," says Buchanan, who blogs at AttaGirlSays.
In imagining the look of this living room, the biggest design challenge was its narrow shape and the low windows. Furniture couldn't go up against the walls, as it would block windows and doorways. The solution: Use the rug to center furniture in the middle of the space.
The homeowners wanted a luxurious master space for their elegant winter home that was layered in rich texture and metallics, but didn't take away from the open, calming view of the mountains and palm trees that surround the home. To appease these desires, designers wrapped the room in textured metallic grasscloth wallpaper and layered tonal fabrics that make the room rich with shine and depth.
The view into the living room area displays the white on white texture of unbleached macrame fiber art on the white ship lap. The coffee table is a DIY - a broken clock face transformed into a live edge table with hair pin legs. A tall floor lamp arches over the large brown leather sectional.
White walls and open spaces characterize the living area of this show-stopping Malibu home. A sitting room features Mid-Century Modern furniture and a modern glass light fixture, while a unique glassed-in wine cellar divides the space from the global-infused living room beyond. Modern art defines a seating niche with a contemporary bench that provides extra seating.
A white ship lap wall creates a bright background for the wood furniture and vibrant plant life in this dining room. Natural wood finishes bring a beautiful and cozy look to the design. Art mounted over the wet bar decorates the wall and compliments the southwestern influence in the room.
Woven baskets in this family room are perfectly for stowing away toys or books for quick clean up. For a personal touch, as well as design contrast, a large horse portrait fills the wall behind the sectional.
An oversized upholstered ottoman packs a powerful design punch in this kid-friendly living room. The soft performance fabric coordinates with the tonal blue on the walls, art, and other textiles in the space. The ottoman is versatile for entertaining, relaxation or for the kiddos to jump and play on.
A cheery surprise awaits in this neutral living room: One of the shelf's cubbies is painted a soft sunshine yellow. In the rest of the room, varying neutral shades pair with natural elements (wood floors and coffee tables) to create an airy, comfortable feel.
A large blue sofa turns the corner in this deep navy living room. Alternating neutral and blue pillows line the sofa for a checkerboard effect. A blue-and-white spotted rug complements the color scheme, and an acrylic-topped wood coffee table catches light from the window.
