Pale pinks and bright blues are present throughout this Eclectic-Midcentury Modern home. From the modern art to the luxurious upholstery, color is everywhere creating light, bright and inviting spaces throughout the home.
The pastel colors on the desks are muted reflections of the bolder jewel tones used throughout the rest of the space. Each of these details add a subtle pop of color to brighten up their corner of the room.
On either side of the fireplace designers brought in a clear, modern desk and adorned it with a pastel table lamp and vase wit a sprig of baby's breath. For seating, a bold purple, Midcentury Modern stool slides easily underneath. For a finishing touch, they hung a black and white abstract art piece above each desk to complete the look.
The homeowners wanted their living room's design to be comfortable for everyone in their family, even the dog, so designers found him a small, cozy rug with a fluffy pillow to create his bed. Then, they placed the bed at the top of the sitting area so that Fido could continue to be an important part of the family's life.
With tons of natural light coming into this Eclectic-Midcentury Modern living room space from the French doors and large windows, the space feels light, bright and open, highlighting the clean lines and bold colors that make up the design of this room.
The design of this living room picks up the architecture's urban edginess—exposed beams, metal ducts—and incorporates them into the look. A spiral staircase leads between the two levels. The barstools and coffee table are metal, the sofa black leather with nailhead trim.
This cozy, contemporary space is perfectly chic and stylish for any family. Windows throughout the space let in plenty of natural light, while the mixture of light, linen fabrics, elegant patterns and gauzy curtains keep the space feeling light, bright and airy. For a warm touch, exposed beams were added to give the space depth and dimension as well as to define the space within the home.
This living room area provides a playful air of visual stimulation; lively punches of tangerine and kelly green merged with varying shades of cobalt and indigo blues. A heavy dose of woven sea grass added to the distinctive maritime air while an assortment of sea shells, blue-and-white pottery and a colorful collection of art came together to create a place of delight in this low-key beach cottage.
While it's tempting to buy that huge sectional sofa, turn it toward the TV and call it a day, providing a variety of seating throughout the room can be a great way to give the space a more intimate feel. A couple of comfy accent chairs oriented toward one another looks polished and encourages conversations.
