Sublime sophistication perfectly describes this living room designed by Ana Donohue. For the entryway, Donohue chose unexpected pieces that all work together to anchor the space. A muted canvas hung casually atop a console table with wooden tusks indicates a strong but delicate sensibility that is carried throughout the rest of the space.
The eye-catching art over the fireplace adds a pop of vivid purple color to the space. A unique contemporary metal sculpture creates a fireplace cover for an artistic take to the space. Mounted sconces and boxed wood stools create a mirror effect surrounding the fireplace.
Rather than fill the living room walls with different prints, the designers chose one or two canvases to make a bold statement. Here, a huge purple and blue canvas becomes a beautiful backdrop for the neutral sofas.
Looking over the stone kitchen countertop the room opens up into a spacious and inviting living space. The beige tone walls give a calm feel to the design and keep the room bright in the natural light. A contemporary chandelier draws the eye to the high ceiling. A black and white Buddha canvas is a fitting touch for the serene and stylish decor.
Large canvas art is custom designed to reflect the nursery's color palette and painted with a sweet little quote at the bottom. Delicate patterned bedding and pillows add texture to the contemporary, light wood crib.
A white stairway is the setting for a collection of contemporary art, both framed and canvas. The painting of Mick Jagger is an oil on canvas by Alexi Torres, an artist from Cuba. In the white frames, acrylic and ink paintings by Lindsey Porter are on paper from Nepal. The collages are by Isabelle Gautier and Vesela Baker, and the framed black-and-white piece is by Gee Gee Collins. The railing and floors are hardwoods in the Home for the Holidays designer showhouse in Atlanta.
A fresh coat of paint works wonders on this historic home, instantly brightening the 1870s interior and making it look more modern. Using the white walls as a canvas, the designers then introduced splashes of color via the bright red art in the foyer and a pink sofa, green chairs and blue area rug in the living room.
Your child can pretend to be a mountaineer in this playroom painted with peaks and valleys. Shelves provide ample space for organizing toys and books, and a table with small stools is the perfect spot for kids to create art or do puzzles. A door covered with chalkboard paint provides a reusable canvas, and a graphic blue rug hides the inevitable spills.
A glowing gold light fixture is a contemporary twist on a disco ball casting cubes of light throughout this bedroom. A mix of patterned throw pillows decorate the blue seat cushion of the built in bench. A large abstract art canvas is mounted opposite the bed with upholstered pattern headboard and white linens.
A great space for the kids to cuddle up and read, this playroom is light and bright thanks to the stark white walls and nearby window. A plaid sofa, nature-inspired area rug and canvas art add rusticity to the contemporary design.
A black and white three-fold headboard and Buddha art canvas bring traditional asian flair to the contemporary feel of this bedroom. A mix of throw pillows features yellow, orange and purple tones with a sheen finish reflecting the natural light from the windows. Midcentury modern nightstands support warm-toned table lamps on both sides of the bed. A brown rug is angled across the floor to create an interesting line through the room.
