Jackson Paige Interiors worked their magic on this Brentwood remodel by incorporating built-ins for a clean, structured backdrop. Consequently, accent colors and accessories drive the decor and give the room its unique design. Shown here, the eggplant, light blue and orchid colors on the daybed give the space a punch of color while coordinating with the teal paint on the wall. The white backdrop also allows accessories to reign.
Sophisticated and elegant, this living room features three areas: an intimate grouping of chairs for conversation, an oversized sectional for relaxing and watching TV, and a table and chairs for playing games. Vibrant throw pillows and a striped ottoman provide color in the otherwise neutral living space.
A gorgeous white living room is accented by a lovely grouping of silver vases and containers on the glass coffee table. Bold patterns of black and white grace the roman shades and throw pillows make the overall theme classic yet memorable.
Neutral hues throughout the floor of this swimming pool patio create a beautiful patchwork of tones. The bright blue pool and green grass and trees add instant color to the space. Groupings of wood lounge chairs are padded with white cushions and small throw pillows.
The vast open space of this mid-century modern home is separated with strategically placed furniture groupings for a stylish, functional living room and dining area. The great room is anchored with design elements like a colorful rug and large patterned sofa pillows.
A traditional white chaise lounge grouped with a stacked ball floor lamp and glass side table creates a cozy sitting area in this master bedroom. A blue chevron patterned pillow and bold orange throw breathe life and color into the otherwise neutral space.
This boy's red and white bedroom was designed to match his love of LEGO bricks. It includes a red and white striped area rug with matching cornice, a white window seat with cabinet storage, a clear acrylic play table, a blue and white striped bed with custom pillows, and a creative bundle hanglamp pendant light that looks a group of light bulbs suspended from red strings.
Using careful groupings of furniture and objects, you can create distinct niches, even in smaller spaces. Designer Michel Boyd uses an ultrasuede-covered couch and bookcase to create a reading nook in his home, and this chair and pillows framed by a cut-out portion of wall is its own unique vignette.
A top trick by designers for making a living space feel more homey is adding a fun rug to the flooring, even when you already have carpet. You don't have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on an area or antique rug to fill the entire space. Instead, look for one in a pattern that adds pizzazz, like this cowhide rug that designer Michelle Mentzer with Miles Design Group in metro Atlanta picked up at Ikea. She also got the pictures of landscape art and the chevron and plush accent pillows on a discount at HomeGoods.
