To create a space that complemented the sweeping view of Palm Springs that are visible from the room's wall of windows, so designers kept the colors really clean and controlled, bringing in textural neutrals and a black and white color palette with pop of bright color and metallic glam.
This famous residential skyscraper in Manhattan is one of the tallest in the world, has some spectacular views. The facade of this luxury apartment is treaded with an LED lighting system that can change colors and be controlled from the street.
The dark charcoal gray color used for the media room ceiling provides contrast for the lighter off-white walls. The speakers recessed into the ceiling are part of the home's audio system that can be controlled by smartphone, tablet or computer.
In the master suite, a series of large windows allow in plenty of natural light that can be controlled by curtains that also give the space privacy. The four-post bed adds drama and texture to the space, while gray nightstands, a tufted ottoman and a rug add texture and color to the room.
Natural light is lovely for creating a warm, inviting environment, but when you're ready for some shut-eye, those rays need to be controlled, says Flanigan. In addition to framing window openings with color and texture, drapery allows you to have direct control over your lighting experience. Invest in high-quality drapery and line your panels with blackout material. This ensures you get sleep at any hour of the day while also protecting your furniture, rugs and art from damaging UV rays.
