Expand your definition of what constitutes "art." A vintage scarf beautifully framed, makes a great focal point and is a wonderful way to incorporate a meaningful heritage item into an Heirloom design scheme.
Ammie Kim designed this long, neutral hallway, featuring hardwood flooring, contemporary wall art and an angled beam ceiling. This view of the hallway shows the easy accessibility to the home's dining area.
A series of portraits of odd-shaped creatures are framed and hanging on a black wall above a plush, soft sofa. Two round tables sit on either side of the sofa, which has a coordinating plush ottoman. Four orb pendant lights add lighting and style to the space.
A gallery wall of transportation prints makes a colorful, fun backdrop to the sleek gray crib in this boy's nursery. Visual texture and tactile appeal is brought in through a mix of patterns from the graphic curtains to the blue-and-white gingham rocking chair and faux fur area rug.
This contemporary dining room uses abstract wall art as its main visual focus. The low-key gray walls and black dining table and chairs ensure that focus remains on the art, while a square-patterned area rug ties the room together.
This sunken living room offers a low-slung sectional and leather ottoman. The ottoman can be used as a coffee table or for extra seating. The textured wall art -- reflected in the art in the hallway -- adds to the space's soothing texture.
This contemporary dining room features an all-over white wall color coupled with a gray grasscloth wallpaper that acts as an accent wall. Gray velvet chairs line a rectangular glass dining table, allowing plenty of room for entertaining guests.
In the foyer, an old hardwood floor was re-planed and repurposed to create an accent wall. A unique metal art wall hanging was custom created by Jimmy Don Holmes of JDH Iron Designs in Crawford, Texas. The piece was given to homeowner Bill Graham by Chip and Joanna as a tribute to his service to the country.
The body is celebrated in its many beautiful forms and angles in this space of the contemporary living room. The sketches are placed in gold and black frames, while the sculpture compliments the gallery wall.
When used together, teal and lime green create a look that is fresh and inspiring. Because the blue-green tone of teal is less intense than the electrifying citrus color of lime green, it's best to use teal as the dominant tone and lime as an accent.
Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Divine Design" and "Candice Tells All," explains how to design with the latest trends in mind. While keeping larger pieces the same, such as sofas and tables, Olson suggests adding trendy colors and styles in small pieces, like pillows, blankets and lampshades. This room adds pops of color in accent pillows and chair cushions, while the main pieces remain neutral.
This contemporary metallic sculpture, created with small, protruding silver balls that form continuous circles toward a crystal center, illuminates the wall with shadows and light. Adding the framed prints next to and below the sculpture presents an interesting aesthetic arrangement.
