Minimal furniture and bright pops of color in this gray bedroom are elements signature of contemporary design. A mix of blue and brown hues create lovely, subtle contrast while a multicolor area rug is a bold focal point.
Naturally, the kitchen and dining room are just as carefully curated, with both spaces featuring billowing drapes, colorful area rugs and ornate light fixtures. With three barstools and eight dining chairs, there are plenty of seats for guests.
This eclectic sitting area blends exposed beam ceilings, Navajo print rugs and modern artwork. Neutral upholstered armchairs are arranged on one side of a wooden dining table, while a black and white bench with pink piping is positioned on the other. A wrought iron chandelier hangs above the table.
The master bedroom has hardwood floors and a colorful area rug. A new chandelier, white shiplap walls and gray paint brighten the room and bring a modern feel to the house, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. Bright blue bed decor compliments the blue area rug and a floral throw pillow finishes off the bed with a pop of color.
This little pink corner in the kids room offers lots of comfy seating in crushed gray, fun framed art and a painted mural on the wall. The bright area rug also provides a soft place to play games or read books.
A handmade Kilim area rug is the crowning jewel of this dining room's design, adding warmth and color to the space. Simple linen curtains are hung high above the windows to add height to the space, and the dining room chairs are upholstered in an orange floral fabric. Midcentury modern black chairs flank the ends of the table.
This exquisite dining room's jet-black walls play off the white ceiling and colorful striped area rug. The Chanel artwork adds a sense of supreme sophistication, while the antler chandelier brings texture and a rustic element to the space.
Keep in mind that your furnishings should be in proportion not only to the actual size of the space but also to the perceived size — which can be affected by such elements as paint color or extensive areas of glass. In this project, the latter came into play. “The floor-to-ceiling windows make this small space feel larger, and to keep that open feeling the furniture needed to be scaled appropriately,” says architect Leslie Arnold. “Choosing furniture that was open at the bottom — i.e. pieces that do not go all the way to the floor — ’enlarges’ the room by allowing the entire floor to be visually unbroken. The simple, solid colored upholstered furniture allows the brightly colored rug and wall art to be the main focus of the room.”
In the dining room, eclectic details such as the Asian inspired statues and and interesting bowls blend with Midcentury Modern furniture, such as the buffet and the light fixture, to create a bright, elegant Eclectic-Midcentury Modern design.
