Bright pops of color in unexpected places keep the living room feeling fresh and lively throughout. Above the fireplace, a bright pink juju hat, originally a sign of nobility worn by royalty and aristocrats in the Cameroon, hangs in a regal position, bringing color to the room.
To make a statement, designer Claire Paquin incorporated accent colors and patterns on the main pieces of furniture. The floral upholstery on the back of the tuxedo sofa is a gorgeous twist, adding feminine flair to its sleek silhouette.
These stunning chairs with custom faux bois upholstery designed by Julianne Taylor are, unfortunately, no longer in production. But they perfectly suit Taylor's Asian-influenced and color-infused living room.
Designers filled this fun, eclectic home of the NYC fashionista homeowner with bold, luscious fabrics, colors and statement pieces. For example, the homeowner's previously owned sectional was recovered in scrumptious green velvet, and a chunky. A funky, oversized mirror was placed between the sectional and the wall to reflect all of the room's gorgeous natural light. Designers mixed these features with other bold patterns, colors and textures to create a bold, exotic space that makes the owner feel right at home.
Subtle variations in color and finish and a few whimsical touches energize this lovely sitting area. The high back settee is flanked by stately metallic lamps and mirrored end tables. Overhead, a statement art piece commands the room.
This transitional living room gets its oomph from its funky light fixtures. Their golden hues radiate throughout the room and create an interesting complement with the modern artwork over the fireplace. The colors are soft, muted and have a comfortable and stylish appeal.
Bold and fresh floral patterns, bright colors and properly scaled furniture occupy this vibrant living and dining area. The band of green stripes on the outside of the drapes makes the window appear larger, and the red sofa makes a strong color statement yet has a classic style. The gold accents in the dining room chandelier are dispersed throughout the rest of the space to connect the two areas, and the versatile daybed separates the two spaces while keeping an open, fluid look.
The homeowner of this French Country Home wanted to re-charge her space and bring in vibrant colors, girly patterns and bold statements. The traditional furniture of this living room was replaced with bright colored pieces, such as this couch with tons of colors and a bold design. Complimentary pillows were added to accent the furniture and give the space an even more stylish and elegant look.
Gold is the predominant accent color in this lovely taupe brown bedroom. A chandelier holds court in the center of the room, while a fireplace flanked by two blue chairs with gold throw pillows serves as the room's focal point.
A focal point in the kitchen is the modern but retro-look slide in range in a vibrant teal. The color code of the range's finish was referenced to get an exact color match for the paint used for the lower cabinets. White marble countertops, subway tile backsplash and upper cabinets keeps the space light and airy.
A graphic area rug makes a bold statement and anchors the furniture in this contemporary living room. The rug's gray and white color palette is reflected throughout the furnishings from the upholstered bench and sofa to the white armchairs with chrome details.
Bright orange accents, like pillows and a throw, add a fun pop of color to this contemporary family living room. The stacked stone accent wall and petrified wood coffee table bring texture and interest to the neutral space.
This sleek black fireplace was designed as a statement piece for the living room. It was made with a material called archistone that looks like a concrete product but can be manipulated and colored any way the client wants it. The hearth was made from a huge boulder that was craned into place. The result is a gorgeous space that feels modern yet true to its rustic setting.
As this 6-foot-by-7-foot Atlanta bathroom demonstrates, sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. Although this space receives no natural light, the bold Kelly green walls give it fresh personality. The ultra-white floor and wainscoting counterbalance the green's intensity.
This entry joyfully foreshadows what's in store for our journey through the Blehm family home. We're immediately introduced to the family's four central themes: a love of art, bold colors, custom solutions and the use of classic black and white. When the foundation is understated, as is this entry's wallpaper, it creates an opportunity to layer on the fun. Angela worked with a local carpenter to design the statement making red lacquered cabinet. The door style was inspired by Angela's favorite ceramic planter and is in perfect harmony with the iron pickets on the staircase to the left. It is clear the paintings and accessories were all intentionally chosen and placed. The relationships between shapes, finishes and even the primary colors create a beautifully balanced entry vignette
