An antique side table, a brass swing arm floor lamp and a deep rose velvet bergère chair are brightened by white tulips set in a clear glass vase. Balcony french doors allow natural light to brighten the room, framed by heavy neutral curtains.
Designers Karen and Mina created this open, elegant living room space out of the previously cramped duplex. To maximize the seating potential in the space, the ladies brought in a sectional sofa, keeping the space cozy. Across the sectional is a unique cabinet that houses a television, providing a great space to relax and entertain. The neutral oriental rug helps provide definition to the living room space in this open concept first floor, while the rose covered ottomans provide extra seating and help to tie the design together.
Across the room from the sectional in this open concept living room is an ornamental chest that conceals a television, providing the perfect entertaining space in this living room as well as a touch of style. The picture that hangs over the chest is one created by a local artist-one of the many displayed at the open house of this restored duplex.
A large distressed mirror made to look like a vintage window adds depth to this small sitting area. Upholstered light blue chairs with matching throws and pillows create a comfortable sitting area around an ottoman. A bouquet of hot pink roses adds vibrant color to the room's soft palette.
This traditional living room features a large marble fireplace, detailed wall sconces and lavish yellow drapes that match the room's wall color. The addition of fun patterns, like the rose-leopard print pillows and multicolored striped ottoman add a hint of texture to the space.
Using vibrant flocked velvet wallpaper on the ceiling is a stunning and bold way to liven up this transitional sitting area. Jewel-toned drapery, chair and ottoman fabric draw their influence from the wallpaper while anchoring the eye. A linen pendant light provides an inviting feel while a decorative pillow adds whimsy by mirroring the bouquet of roses.
A skylight lets in natural light over this bright, white walk in closet. A decorative double door closet features a 3D design and crystal door knobs. Stacks of drawers are topped with white countertop and a built in open storage shoe shelf. A rose rug adds color to the room, and a neutral ottoman finishes the space.
