Enter this apartment through a narrow, short hallway; the pale blue walls and geometric rug make a dynamic first impression. The hall opens up into a chic, neutral living room where gold wallpaper in a mix of cool prints make the space anything but basic.
Gold accents dispersed throughout this living room give the eye many things to admire. The fireplace surround is comprised of gold tiles, and corset-style curtains, fur-like rug and feline statue add wild flair.
This multi-functional space perfectly fits the family perfectly. A comfy, gray sectional, upholstered ottoman and playful striped slipper chair create the TV viewing area, while brass étagères flank a coordinating TV console house metallic woven baskets that act as toy storage for the kiddos. Finally, a cream lacquered and brass desk was placed against the back of the chaise sectional where the homeowners can catch up on work while their kids watch a movie or play within eyesight.
"Don't be afraid to mix the metals" says designer Michel Boyd who uses gold and silver together in his space. Metallics, says Boyd, work for him like a pop of color. "That reflective surface is the pop of color," says Boyd.
A dark gray accent wall and industrial metal storage cabinet give this modern living room a cool touch, while natural light keeps the space bright. A neutral sofa sits in front of a black coffee table while a fun throw pillow adds a touch of color.
