In this wide passageway, niches with colored lights stand out against the tan walls, making a lively gallery display. In the center of the space, a long bench sits museum-style, inviting passerby to reflect on the art.
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
The walls at the end of the hallway that leads to the guest bedroom were a great place to add artwork and a seating vignette. The abstract, graffiti style art comes from a local artist designers found at the Santa Monica art fair.
A large mirror reflects a view of the living room from the hallway of this open living space. In case extra seating is needed, ottomans are stored beneath a slim black console table. A potted houseplant is a fresh and lively accent.
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.
No space is wasted including this landing in designer Boyd's home. Boyd creates a memorable, striking vignette by placing a series of sculptural items including a striking fur ottoman and a distinctive light fixture in close proximity. The result is a tableaux worthy of a contemporary art gallery.
Interior Sight Lines Create Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Living
Designers were careful to blend the indoor and outdoor spaces by taking advantage of sight lines from the home's interior design. The plants in the front courtyard and the back yard can be seen from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and hallways. Here, a sculptural cactus provides a backdrop for art inside the home.
Light blue wall paint helps to make the hallway that leads into the bathroom feel larger. The subtle shade also serves as a bit of a transition from the bold, eclectic designs of the rest of the home to the more soothing, neutral design of the bathroom.
