Inside the arches is painted navy to create a stylish accent wall breaking up the bright white of the room. Blue details like the area rug, cabinets and throw pillows continue the accent color throughout the room. Simple, sleek contemporary pieces such as the light fixture and the brass end table catch the eye as you explore around the brown leather sofa.
In a room with pink and white vertical striped wallpaper, a rich wood buffet table with brass hardware is displayed along one wall. Two table lamps are placed at either end of the buffet table while the wall above displays an ornate gold mirror.
Walk along this curtain-filled entryway with hardwood flooring and exposed ceiling pipe. Furniture in varying heights is spaced out along the hallway, ending with a tall stand holding a porcelain vase. The circular brass table displays a uniquely shaped candlestick and decorations.
In the dining area, designers brought in a rustic farm table that warms the space with its beautiful wood grain. On either end of this table, gray and white upholstered head chairs contribute comfort and texture to the design, while a brass light fixture brings the modern element the homeowners love.
Light hardwood and white walls create a beautiful and airy base for this sunny living room set up. Wood french doors and a navy accent wall add deeper tones to ground the room while the rugs bring an element of soft texture. Brass accents are drawn out with a sleek end table.
Ahhhh... At the end of a long day (or beginning of one!), sink into this large soaking tup for a recharge or just some relaxation. Simple brass-toned hardware keeps the bathroom looking classy, and the subway-tile-patterned floor brings a bit of tradition and nostalgia. A table near the tub is perfect for holding accents or towels.
"For the kitchen, I ended up using mostly U.K.-made finishes, which I realized after the fact," says Wijaya. This includes the freestanding island made from salvaged pine that came from a 100-year-old building in Britain. Other U.K.-sourced elements entail oxidized brass shelf brackets, the kitchen faucet and lighting. Upbeat contemporary wallpaper from Farrow & Ball (also in the U.K.) provides a distinct transition to the dining room, where a conversation-piece chandelier floats above the table.
"I love the look of high-end materials like marble and polished brass, but if you can't afford, say, an all-marble kitchen countertop, why not bring those materials into your space by using them on smaller pieces and home accessories? I have a table lamp with a marble base that adds a very posh touch to my home office." -Camille Styles, lifestyle blogger & Creative Director at CamilleStyles.com
