An eclectic living area features a built-in bookcase with a vast, colorful book collection. The bust on the floor and textile on the wall ties in the cultural story going on throughout the owner's design.
This contemporary white living room features a wood and wrought iron coffee table, white upholstered sofa and arm chair, midcentury modern leather side chairs and pendant light, and a built in book shelf alongside a traditional wood burning fireplace.
Here, here to another beautifully put-together foyer arrangement from Atlanta designer Whitney Ray. Don't keep your most beautiful antiquarian books hidden away in a library or on a book shelf: display their gorgeous covers in a sideboard or coffee table tableaux.
On the other side of the room, a bookshelf displays some of the owners' favorite items: vintage books, ceramic vases and woven baskets from their travels abroad. Guests will love admiring these pieces while they wait for dinner.
Like most of the design in this home, the art in this New York City home is often understated, contributing to an overall effect more than standing out on its own. This is a home of small statements, where pieces such as the ones found on this shelf serve to evoke a feeling rather than command the eye. Resisting the urge to fill a large space with as many things as possible, Kalyn and Todd have focused on choosing the right pieces to create a home, an office and a feeling that they would love.
