Crisp white walls instantly breathe life back into this master bedroom, making the space feel fresh for its youthful owners. Vibrant artwork decorates the hallway outside and offers a glimpse of the fun color palette that's to come.
A custom breakfront offers additional kitchen storage and showcases pieces from the owner's contemporary art collection. Thanks to their colorful hues, these prints easily infuse the space with warmth.
For these homeowners, designers created an open concept space to showcase the couple's collection of postmodern art. No matter where in the main spaces of the home the couple or their guests sit, they are able to view several pieces from the collection at a time.
The owners of this home hoped to show off their collections, so designers made the collector's items the focal points in the space. The room's statues are placed in prominent positions, two in front of windows to allow light to shine directly on them, and two on either corner of the fireplace at the front of the room. The art collection, framed in black and hung on white walls, is also very prominent in the space.
Modern art flanks the TV and rests atop a custom white oak console by Honea Woodworks in this casual family room. Throughout the space, wood accents balance cool white walls and concrete floors. The adjoining dining room features the homeowners’ collection of vintage '60s furniture.
In the conference room, a large concrete table adds texture to the space. Around it, rest six natural saddle cab arm chairs that add warmth to the space, but also provide a comfortable place for designers and clients to discuss ideas and close deals. Decorating the walls of this space, two 17th Century Portuguese paintings hang proudly on the white wall, while a 20th Century portrait adorns the exposed brick.
Before renovating this pre-Depression era apartment, the spaces in the home were very dark and traditional. To remedy this, designers added ambient light to brighten up the space. In this hallway, they restored the neoclassical plasterwork to highlight the architectural elegance of the space and added modern art to match the homeowner's personal style. These efforts highlight the history of the building, perfectly blending it with the modern style of the homeowner.
This handmade art piece adorns a prominent wall in the restaurant, showcasing the chef's spoon collection. The collection is the result of a thieving habit of swiping spoons from memorable dining experiences around the world.
Much of the guiding principle behind the furniture choices had to do with letting the homeowner's art collection shine. Here, the art's bright colors sing out against the bed's subdued grays and white.
By the door, a final collection of artworks reiterates Tanika’s conviction that art “should be things you love and people you love.” A collection of sketches of the happy couple sit beside woven artwork and even a ceramic doggie sculpture for the puppy.
Inspired by his client's custom pop art collection, designer Joe Human packed this modern apartment with bold prints and patterns. In the living room, polka dot wallpaper enlivens the space without competing with the vibrant artwork.
