Contemporary photography by Richard Learoyd and Richard Misarch add drama to this eclectic living room. Neutral overstuffed furniture offsets the deep red walls, while layered area rugs add texture underfoot. Decorative molding sets a formal tone overhead.
Open floor next to the shuffleboard set up shows off the cobblestone look and red-brown coloring of the floor.

Train prints and a railroad crossing sign sit above the crib in this train themed nursery, while a plaid rug provides a place to play on the floor below. Modern green crib bumpers tie in with the bold green stripes on the ceiling.
The dining room was awkward and small, so designers covered the walls with a fun, gold malachite wallpaper and addd a linear chandelier to distract from the odd lines on the space and draw the eye to the center of the space. To bring in a bigger sense of richness, designers brought in bold purples to accent the gold wallpaper. At the entrance to the space, a surfboard and photography add a playful contrast to the formal, elegant dining space.
The home's entry flows into the formal living room, so designers went with a simple design to give the space an open, airy and uncluttered feel. A simple, modern bench with muted colored pillows, soft colored artwork and a gray rug define the space and usher guests into the home's living room.
To create the perfect, eclectic entryway to this home, designers started with the cool artwork and matched the bench, pillows and rug to its soft colors, creating the perfect warm welcome to anyone who enters the home.
