This whimsical tea kettle playhouse is the perfect space for kids to escape and have a magical tea party. An outdoor bistro table with chairs complete with tea set sparks creativity and imagination. Flower shaped lights and landscaping insets coordinate well with the natural landscape and flowers in this backyard setting.
A transitional living room is filled with wine tinted accents such as the L-shaped couch, accent pillows and floral curtains. A wooden table has two ice blue ottoman chairs and table lamp. A round wooden coffee table with flower vase is positioned between a high back chair and armchair. Bookshelves borders a grand piano.
If you’re out of time and out of money before your party, why bother with floral for the table? Instead, simply add potted houseplants to the tablescape. While plants won’t add the same elegance that flowers bring to the table, you’ll still be able to add color, texture and shape into the mix.
Design makes up for lack of square feet in this home. The tiny dining area features a thin white and metal table, matching white chairs, uniquely shaped pendulum light, and a large mirror. Whimsical artwork, glass accessories, and a simple flower arrangement add visual interest to the space.
A simple glass table is dressed with coffee table books, a candle, vases and fresh flowers for a thoughtful entryway display. A circular mirror creates a cool depth illusion with the changing of the frame thickness. Sconce with square lamp shades frame the mirror for a subtle shape contrast. The dark front door is well lit from the lighting fixture mounted above.
The minimal use of color in this modern room highlights the unusual shapes of the Donghia sofa and accent tables. The pops of red delivered through the flowers and box add some flair to the fresh, clean space.
Contemporary and modern design elements come together beautifully in cozy living room. The checkered swivel chair, tufted ottoman and shag rug make for a nice place to kick back and relax. A glittering gold table lamp and gold log-shaped side table lend a shiny dose of style. Fun geometric wall art, fresh flowers and succulent plants add the finishing touches.
This fun twist on a casual living room uses a triangle patterned rug to add shape to the room. A gray leather sofa and black cushioned wooden rocker provide seating around a low wooden coffee table, while bright accents of red are added by a variety of pillows, a vase of flowers and eclectic wall art.
High contrast black and white stripes trick the eye into seeing more light in this space and create a bold backdrop for the bright, kelly green L-shaped bench. A stark white modern dining table shines against the striped walls and dark hardwood floor. A black and white vase fits the motif perfectly to display orange flowers bringing a pop of accent color.
Open floor space between the living room and dining room keep the spaces separate while still feeling connected in the open floor plan. A green leather sofa compliments the sage green velvet cushioning of the dining chairs. An animal hide rug and upholstered chairs bring unique texture to the living room. Above the dining table, a petaled light fixture creates a flower shape on the ceiling.
This semi-miniature African violet, ‘Mac’s Strawberry Sundae’ (G. McDonald, hybridizer), has coral-red blooms. African violet blooms have many different flower shapes, including singles, stars (5 petals in a star shape), doubles, semidoubles, ruffled doubles, ruffled stars, and wasps (5 petals, with the upper two slightly curled back). Winston J. Goretsky, president of the African Violet Society of America, says the plants will bloom when they get sufficient light. “No amount of care or feeding will encourage them to bloom if they are not receiving enough light. Available light diminishes drastically, the further distance away from a window the plant is grown. A plant grown on a coffee table in the middle of a room will grow, but may not bloom.”
