A neutral color palette is highlighted by natural light and subtle yellow and red accents in this Asian-inspired living room. A white sofa with black sides is decorated with yellow and neutral throw pillows, and above the sofa, a long panel of artwork adds additional yellow to the space. A white coffee table, brown leather chair and tripod floor lamp complete the design.
A jungle theme appears throughout this eclectic boy's room. The space features a contemporary white nightstand with intricate carving detail and a trio of squared mirrors on each door. A white table lamp and white animal figures on the wall and nightstand tie in the overall theme while the roman shade with black trim complements the neutral decor and allows for adjustable natural lighting.
The geometric headboard above the bed is a custom walnut bed and headboard created by Susan Jamieson of Bridget Beari Designs using custom paint colors named for dogs (proceeds go to rescue groups). Brass lamps rest on black nightstands and a chunky knit gray throw is at the foot of the bed. The room was designed by Jamieson for a Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta.
A gray accent wall acts as a backdrop for the subway tile shaped headboard design. White bed linens are decorated with a chevron throw blanket and pillows with a finishing sheen. Low nightstands have matching table lamps framing the bed and black and white car art mounted on the wall. A sliding glass door reveals a view to the balcony and lets in bright, natural light.
The combination of texture and pattern in this space creates a unique Midcentury Modern vibe. From the velour sofa, dressed down with a black and white Aztec throw and a gray and white abstract patterned pillow, to the gray ombré table lamp to the visible grain in the wood end table, this living space has no shortage of texture and personality.
Bedding in the home’s signature black and white color palette juxtaposes stripes and polka-dots for a very modern mix of patterns. Pops of orange throughout the room liven up the space while giving it a warm yet youthful feel. Even more color finds it way in through the metallic side table and lamp, while leopard-patterned pillows on both beds tie the colors and patterns together.
Modern meets traditional in this urban loft space. A modern accent wall in shades of black and gray creates a separation from the home's other spaces. The structure's existing exposed brick wall brings a historical aura and industrial style. The large sectional sofa is sleek and streamlined, and the coffee table, chair and arc lamp add to the modern theme.
From the get-go, there’s no mistaking this house is sophisticated and fun. The black-and-white cabinet from AllModern and the arrangement of abstract art—a canvas from Grandin Road and framed pieces by Kim Curran—have gallery appeal. Meanwhile, the symmetry of the blue West Elm lamps and caned chairs from CB2 give the setup an elegant touch.
The dining room by Shelly Riehl David uses bold colors to create a vibrant dining space. Custom draperies on iron medallions were paired with an enameled walnut credenza, glided buffet lamps and mahogany dining table. Silk upholstered side chairs were grouped with button-tufted head chairs and showcased on travertine tiles gridlocked by narrow black granite stripes. An elegant centerpiece and simple accessories accentuate the timeless elegance of this room.
An Italian serpentine walnut three-drawer commode, a Tuscan carved giltwood mirror and an 18th century English chinoiserie tall case clock are in the foyer designed by Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs for the Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta. The black-and-white floor has a zig-zag pattern. On the commode are two gold Ormolu ornaments on lucite bases and a pair of 1930’s Chinese green hardstone lamps with lavender shades. Two 19th century regency-style chairs with an ebony finish are underneath framed original landscape oils by Tyler Colgan.
I must admit, I am slightly obsessed with convex mirrors. I love the impact they add to a space, especially above this pair of dining consoles flanking the butler's pantry. Check out how the distressed frame speaks to the painted driftwood base of the console. The body of the lamp is as porous and textured as the white driftwood, but we specified it in black as a nod to the dining chandelier and to help ground/substantiate the glass tops. The mask is a find from the homeowners’ travels and also works well with the artwork.
As seen on Buying and Selling with Drew and Jonathan Scott, the brothers designed a master bedroom oasis for Santino and Andrea with lush bed linens and pillows. Those features are accented by black wood end tables and bright, reflective lamps on either side of the bed to bring more light to the space. The focal point of the space is an accent wall that is covered with wallpaper. The tree photograph above the bed helps to bring a little nature into the space.
To create more light in the space, the Good Bones team, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak, added two new windows in the reclaimed wood accent wall. This not only gives the space a focal point, but also allows more natural light into the space, making it feel bright and open. To add to the elegant, industrial design the team was going for, they added black and white artwork, a metal headboard, brown bed linens and dark end tables and lamp shades. To tie the space together and give it a pop of color, a green shag carpet adds comfort to this elegant, industrial master bedroom.
This formal living room is likely Angela's favorite place to get inspired, primarily because she's always wanted a pink room (Sherwin Williams, Lotus Flower). Her design books, magazines and some of her most prized vintage finds are housed in this space. I love that this angle of the room is perfectly balanced and there is a relationship between each of the pieces. The vintage print framed by the pair of lamps, compliments the chairs flanking the console, which is grounded by the ottoman. Angela’s use of black and white in this room and throughout the house adds a dose of classic design in spaces with unconventional wall colors and bold abstract artwork.
