Designer Amy Elbaum carefully selected accent furnishings for this living room renovation with an eye on simple lines and quiet sophistication.

An Asian-style console and table art adds a burst of brilliant color in this living room from designer Elizabeth P. Clarke. According to the designer, "Art and accessories are a very delicate step.

We could all take lessons from Atlanta designer Whitney Ray's impressive foyer console. The ideal blend of art and design, Ray cleverly uses both the top and the underside of this console to display framed art and decorative elements.

A rustic wood hutch provides display space for white collectibles, while the top of the weathered console dons fresh-cut flowers. Beadboard paneling along the wall creates a cozy, country feel to the space.
