A circle motif defines this inviting entryway. A circle-patterned area rug softens the hardwood floors, and a circular mirror hangs above the Brazilian Peroba wood console. Upholstery tacks create a subtle textured pattern on the cream-colored walls, adding dimension and continuing the circle motif.
Gray Steps With Southwestern Striped Runner, Mounted Hooks With Orange Knobs and Bold Type Photo
Gray steps are livened up with rich color from a striped, southwestern runner. Orange knobs on the end of mounted hooks and an orange background in the framed word art compliment the orange tones of the rug. The trio of hooks create an easy spot to drop off everyday items.
Bright and spacious, this contemporary hallway becomes almost another mini room of the house, wide enough to create a small seating area. Beautiful gray slate stones make up the floor and stairs, and a cool industrial chandelier adds extra light.
To make the most of the limited square footage of a New York City apartment, architect Michael K. Chen created a now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t “party wall.” By day all that is visible in the entry of the home is a wall of sleekly lacquered cabinets and drawers. But after dark, in the words of the architect, “the panels open to reveal a full bar with integral refrigeration and tap, and storage in a louche walnut burl with integral LED lighting. A display compartment has another dual personality, flipping from cool and white, to richly burled wood. A separate compartment reveals an integral custom humidor in milled cedar. Finally, integrated into the piece is a five-foot-long pull-out dining element that slides out, cantilevering from the storage volume on custom steel hardware, creating a micro dining room.”
Fun & Colorful Playroom With Custom Scrabble Board Wall
The perfect place to learn and create, this playroom uses fun colors and patterns that kids of any age will love. Next to the multipurpose wall that stores games and supplies, the art table features rolled, white craft paper to keep the area neat and tidy in between projects. A custom-designed, life sized Scrabble board is the star of the space.
Contemporary Playroom With Mod White Chairs and Wooden Storage Bins
Modern white chairs bring some smooth curves to the edges and corners in this playroom. A white table provides a workspace and can conceal storage beneath. Wooden storage bins bring a beautiful, rich color to the room and allow for easy pick up. A neutral graphic rug meshes with the wood, white and neutral wall color.
A dramatic cascading chandelier lights a curving staircase in this luxury Miami Beach retreat. Sinuous lines characterize this space, emphasized by the circular design of the mosaic tile floor and the round pedestal table. A soft, neutral palette gives the space a relaxed, yet elegant feel.
The design of this remarkable home uses its lovely Mediterranean architecture as a foundation, then layers on eclectic vintage furnishings, bold graphic patterns and pretty brass details. Case in point: The handsome wood doors are finished in a pale gray wash that matches the shade of the foyer's tile floor.
