Neutral is far from boring in this formal dining room design by William C Johnson. Beautiful dark hardwood complements the traditional buffet. Additional traditional elements include the crystal chandelier and dramatic curtains. Neutral, upholstered dining chairs and a large piece of art on the wall bring contemporary flair to the room.
A more formal space to gather, this living room offers a stylish place for guests to sit and relax with drinks before dinner (or drinks after dinner, whichever you prefer). The chandelier suspended above adds another level of elegance to the design.
The master bedroom has a refined style. "This is much more formal than any other room in the house, but the bold color makes it a little more fun and not really stuffy," says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
This formal living room is likely Angela's favorite place to get inspired, primarily because she's always wanted a pink room (Sherwin Williams, Lotus Flower). Her design books, magazines and some of her most prized vintage finds are housed in this space. I love that this angle of the room is perfectly balanced and there is a relationship between each of the pieces. The vintage print framed by the pair of lamps, compliments the chairs flanking the console, which is grounded by the ottoman. Angela’s use of black and white in this room and throughout the house adds a dose of classic design in spaces with unconventional wall colors and bold abstract artwork.
Rather than fill the empty space of the planting beds with an array of flowers and shrubs, the designer chose to emphasize the unique boxwood shapes by planting them far apart. A simple, neat layer of mulch ensures the focus remains on the artistic topiary element and deters the growth of weeds.
