This contemporary, West Coast residence has a beautiful open design and modern decor. A short glass wall provides a balcony overlook from the second floor to the first where a long light fixture hangs as a decorative eye-catcher. The second story features a living room area with gray leather sofa, an eclipse door leading to an outdoor patio and a dining area in front of a built in fireplace.
Designed for a family who both loves modern aesthetics and color, this dining room features red in unexpected ways. Red sliding doors provide a backdrop to the sleek dining room while red powder-coated steel beams support a tangle of pendant lights for a touch of disarray in an otherwise orderly, contemporary space.
One striking gold element: in this case a dramatic light fixture is sometimes all you need. This hip gold light blends beautifully with punchy color in this room by Rabaut Design Associates. If you don't have a lot of cash to spend, put it into one, singular element to get the most bang for your buck.
A burlap ceiling and unique light fixture top this navy blue midcentury modern dining room. The room features white wainscoting and coffered ceiling details, a round table with upholstered chairs, and a yellow-and-white rug with a geometric pattern.
To help the dining room maintain its airy feeling despite its small space, designers used a glass top table with a sculptural wood base. The finish on the dining chair legs are painted so that they coordinated with the chandelier, while the upholstery adds the texture and black and gray contrast that is carried throughout these two spaces.
A dome chair at the end of this dining table adds beautiful shape and intrigue to the room. The dome brings height to the table while the surrounding gray chairs are level with the tabletop. Bold hues on the rug add vibrant color to the white surroundings and the natural, light look of the hardwood.
Down the hall, guests will arrive at a spacious sitting room. Here, they can choose from several comfortable seating options and admire a custom light fixture from Casa Zeta Italia, which is made of steel and fabric. Floor-to-ceiling drapes emphasize the room’s height and also allow for privacy at night.
A predominantly neutral color palette helps create a calming environment in this classic breakfast room. Pops of color are incorporated in the accessories and drapery fabric, adding liveliness to the space.
The unique light fixture in this open plan dining room and kitchen is a glossy, curvy counterpart to the many crisp angles and straight lines. Windows let in sunlight; mirrors and glass reflect it around the room.
