Like the rest of the home, the office is filled with art to keep Tze inspired on the days when she works from home. This raised desk was a DIY gift to her husband who, at 6’5”, is too tall for most standing desks.
The limited amount of art and accessories in a Scandinavian inspired space means that each piece takes on added importance. The graphic quality of the art on Helga’s living room wall really stands out, where as it may have gotten lost in the shuffle in a large gallery wall. Keeping larger furnishings neutral allows smaller, more colorful items to really be “seen” and have more impact.
A large medallion art piece stands out against the white walls on this Asian-style dining area. Bright red bench seating and a blue and white porcelain vase add pops of color to the space, while a modern wood dining table creates a perfect spot for enjoying meals.
White painted brick walls are decorated with a modern black and white canvas to emphasize the minimalistic and modern design. A large plant brings a pop of color and life to the bright, neutral tones of the room and furniture.
Keep your arts and crafts supplies within arm’s reach and neatly displayed by arranging them on a tiered cake stand. Dedicate the lower stand to glass jars for housing buttons, tacks and other embellishments which get lost easily. Keep spools of ribbon or thread in the center and then use the top tier for things you’ll need easy access to such as pens and paints.
This undeniably fun bedroom is a colorful reflection of the budding artist who lives here. Angela's daughter is following in her footsteps and her bedroom/art studio is the perfect space to inspire creativity. Benjamin Moore's White Rain was applied to the walls and trim, then color matched for the drapery and area rug. This design technique creates a gallery-like feel by neutralizing the backdrop, and in this case, allowing her artwork and painterly fabrics to stand out. The crisp white bedside tables pop off of the dreamy wall color and the Pierre Frey fabrics on the pillows and bench are perfect to inspire an artist's imagination. Repeating an additional set of panels and upholstered cornice behind the headboard adds major aesthetic value, style, and an element of customization to this bedroom. My favorite element is the cat lamp, having a "cat nap" on the bedside chest.
This stunning, stand-alone Chinoiserie cabinet is adorned with gold paint and centered under coordinating black and gold frames for simplistic sophistication. Amy Morris of Amy Morris Interiors adds height to this classically-inspired living space by vertically stacking antique pieces against a neutral wall.
According to Tze, the bedroom, “feels like a cloud,” a fact which played heavily into the couple’s decision to forgo adding art to the brick wall there. Instead, the bedside table stands in as the main artistic canvas, featuring pieces that are changed out regularly in keeping with Tze’s philosophy that “art is not permanent.”
Graphic, black and white patterns make for an eye-catching display around a striking, white buffet. eclectic pieces of art stand out against crisp, white walls while a small plant and bouquet of tulips add a soft, natural touch.
