A dozen framed prints hang over over a beige chenille sofa. Ottomans upholstered in a peach and white stripe repeat colors in the art and the throw pillows. A white sculpted area rug ties the space together.
This transitional, Brooklyn living space features a well-traveled vibe with neutral textures and prints as seen in the large framed art with brass sconces above, the decorative area rug, patterned pouf and modern wood coffee table with stripes.
A gold frame shines around a southwestern art print over this decorative set up. A matching figurine brings the art work to life in a three-tiered display. Textured wood pedestals are a beautiful contrast to the smooth gray backdrop
This living room features a wall of curated art included antique photographs, vintage gold frames and prints. The club chairs, blue wingback chair and steamer trunk add to the eclectic yet curated style.
Doing homework just got ever so much more fun: This cheery room sets up a desk with a bright yellow chair opposite a rainbow-colored gallery wall filled with framed kid art. At the end of the room, brainstorm in style on the graphic print sofa.
It's always fun to do a gallery wall with art and photo prints using brightly colored frames like forest green or crimson. Great spots for these bold gallery walls are along a staircase, hallway, or in a powder room.
Geometric cornices and a low-slung, curved couch are the standout design elements of this art deco style living room. The round, gold-framed mirror is a powerful addition and brings out gold accents in this rich blue space with neutral furniture. The large tiger-print rug draws attention to the main seating area and unites the furniture in one space.
A vibrant, pop-art-cum-cubism style framed print fits this playroom's bold and colorful, yet refined scheme. Modern, round green stools possesses a curved seat meant to hug the body for ultra-comfortable seating and aesthetic appeal. The striped wall, while bold, doesn't go over-the-top thanks to grounding elements in complimenting colors, like the carpet and stools.
A claw-foot tub painted a deep terra cotta is the focal point in this mint green bathroom. White beadboard frames the tub, while colorful art and printed towels add pattern to the space. A handheld shower head allows for a deep clean while using the tub.
A solid Indiana limestone mantel is the perfect backdrop for a tightly grouped collection of Audubon prints, framed to hide a TV set. If you’re not a bird-lover, almost any series of artwork with repeating themes and colors can work just as well. (To replicate the look on a budget, you can buy an art book and carefully cut out your favorite pages.)
While Angela Blehm’s Georgia home showcases her design aesthetic beautifully, her art studio is where she really gets to let the creativity flow. The bright floral print fabric on the vintage desk chair and the pale blue framed mirror are just a few of the touches that make this studio fun and inviting. Every color, pattern, texture, and medium is available in this space. I could barely resist picking up a paintbrush myself! Seeing Angela in this place of creation it’s clear, that with her passion for art and design, the possibilities are endless.
The design goal in the family room was to maximize seating using stylish and comfortable pieces, so designers set up the main seating area with a custom, gray velvet sofa, a pair of velvet, pin-stripe wingback chairs and a par of wood framed swivel chairs. For a punch of pattern, they layered a zebra print cowhide rug under a brass and glass cocktail table, while a rectangular Swarovski crystal chandelier brings glam into the space without blocking the view of the city below. Finally, an element of art was added to the large TV wall with metallic gold and silver discs that perfectly finish off the design of the room.
Inexpensive painted trays, which were popular in the 1950s and 1960s and are still made today, can bring a farmhouse motif to a kitchen, breakfast nook or adjacent area. Small silhouettes often are bargain-priced at vintage and antiques shops, or you can make your own by printing silhouette-style clip art and placing it in small wooden frames. Pick three or four types of objects, such as silhouettes, blue-and-white serving platters, trays and resin horns, and arrange them in a composition, says Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques."
