This dedicated space for playing games and enjoying casual meals embraces the theme with vintage furniture. To put a custom spin on the chairs, they are re-upholstered with Mid-Century Modern geometric fabric.
The living room is family-friendly, too, thanks to durable fabrics and wood floors. Notice how the two brown leather ottomans balance out the more feminine pieces, as well as complement the geometric shapes in the rug and railing.
Squeeze a generous amount of fabric glue on a sheet of paper. Then press the stamp into the paint, and press again onto the shower curtain. Carefully repeat to create your geometric pattern. Lay newspaper under the shower curtain to ensure no fabric seeps onto your work surface. Allow to dry; then hang on curtain rod.
Contemporary dining chairs covered with a geometric fabric pair well with a more traditional floral area rug in this breakfast nook. The nearly floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with natural light, making the space feel bright and cheery.
In this modern bathroom, a clean geometric tub pairs with a rich black rug to create a formal and sophisticated space. The ombre curtains and upholstered armchair help soften the stark contrast, thus creating a look that's elegant and inviting.
Furniture pieces with open bottoms and slender legs were used in this mid-century modern living room to create an airy mood. Bright yellow and gray floral drapes are used with other neutral fabrics for impact and practicality.
Black and white peel and stick adds new life to the built-in bookshelf in this sitting space. A vintage chair with distressed frame serves as an elegant centerpiece for the design. A contemporary table with a geometric shaped base creates an enticing style contrast to the chair. Blue curtains provide the sole color with the sheen of the fabric keeping with the bright look of the room.
A new rug took up $110 of the $500 budget. Designer Heather Hogan Roberts found this fleece rug with a geometric pattern on sale and saved more with a 10 percent off coupon. She bought two ikat window panels and got one for 40 percent off. Those savings allowed her to buy discounted fabric for custom pillows and the elephant end table, which cost $40 at a thrift shop. The fiddle-leaf fig adds natural beauty to a corner with no need for wall art.
A sophisticated luxury salon designed by Drake/Anderson for the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House brings together classicism and modernism wrapped in saffron, umber and ocher hues. The contemporary room has a crystal beaded and sequined chandelier, an upholstered velvet sofa in ocher and 19th century chairs covered with geometric fabric. The coffee tables are asymmetrical with brass and tiger’s eye gemstone. Statement pieces include abstract art and a bronze sculpture. The room opens to a mirrored bar.
The navy chair brings a bold color statement to the neutral surroundings of this stylish sitting set up. The fabric upholstered on the back of the chair adds light color and pattern complimenting the bright blue and green watercolor wall art. The dresser features a feminine but edgy look with geometric 3D drawers.
My client had the structural aspects of this kitchen down, the marble, the cabinetry and the bar stools but knew she needed the finishing touches to pull it all together as this is a space that they entertain in a lot and spend time with their family every day. The island light fixture was the first thing to find as we knew it would be the showstopper and main focal point of the space. We chose a piece that is both rich and contrasting to all of the white to add warmth to the space but that also has some bling to it! The rest of the softness was added through a greige paint color, geometric fabric for the roman shades and the accessories. Now it is a space that they use everyday and love!
