In this guest house living room, the designers made the most of the space by using furniture with functionality (like the glass nesting tables) and built-in storage (end tables with cabinets or drawers).
Bold pops of color define this sleek living space. A round zebra-print rug, red curtains, turquoise wall inset, and yellow bolster pillows add interest while a white tile wall and floors and glass nesting coffee tables keep the room looking clean and tidy.
Glass and lucite elements (stair railings, nesting coffee tables) maintain a lighter-than-air feel in this sophisticated sitting area. The floating staircase joins the home's three levels; there's also a private elevator.
In the minimalist home office, the design is kept streamlined to spotlight the stunning view out floor-to-ceiling windows. Nesting tables are all glass and a mirrored desk does the neat trick of seeming to disappear.
To create this party-ready centerpiece and table, Wendy Hyde of The Shabby Nest first layered kraft paper over a neutral tablecloth and topped it with a black-and-white patterned table runner. "Balloons were tied to chandelier crystals to weigh them down and keep their place on the table," she says. "Pretty mercury-glass votives were placed between the balloons to add ambient lighting." For a personalized touch, each balloon was embellished with photographs, in this case, pictures of the anniversary couple.
