A custom painting by Thomas Swanston serves as the focal point of this nature-inspired living room. Below, a charming fireplace is backed with brick set in a herringbone pattern. An upholstered bench wraps all the way around the fireplace, providing fireside seating.
Contemporary bird artwork was chosen to add a quirky touch to this bright, bold guest bedroom. The pinks, reds and oranges from the artwork were used in a color-blocking technique around the room, featured on the lamps, cushions and bedding. Designer tip: To keep a space with bright colors from looking like a kid's room, layer shades of the same tone throughout, like this room layers coral, orange and red.
A sweet window seat takes a contemporary turn thanks to bold, black-and-white prints on the seat cushion and accent pillows. Coastal accessories and artwork keep the space tied to its beachfront setting.
This traditional white bedroom features masculine accessories, such as a mounted turtle shell above the bed and antlers above the dresser. Various plates and framed artwork showcasing bird images create a themed gallery wall.
A white desk is positioned against pastel yellow walls in this small office area. A green electric typewriter complements the green chair and artwork. An antique bird cage, small three-legged table and floor lamp accessorize the quaint study space.
A white desk is positioned against pastel yellow walls in this small office space. A vintage typewriter, framed artwork, fun accessories and bird-shaped pulls on the drawers add a ton of personality. Patterned wallpaper inside the desk also adds character to the work space.
A solid Indiana limestone mantel is the perfect backdrop for a tightly grouped collection of Audubon prints, framed to hide a TV set. If you’re not a bird-lover, almost any series of artwork with repeating themes and colors can work just as well. (To replicate the look on a budget, you can buy an art book and carefully cut out your favorite pages.)
From an icy blue and white color palette to touches of silver and rich, menswear-inspired fabrics, see how a lackluster bedroom gets a winter-inspired makeover full of the season's hottest trends. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, a collection of framed artwork and photography is simply leaned against the wall above the entry’s console table. A small table lamp made of mercury glass helps reflect the light it emits once switched on at night. A mirrored console table serves as the base for this lovely white and silver vignette, featuring silver frames, white hydrangeas, silver bird accessories and a white faux deer head.
