In this home, designer Debbie Talianko selected contemporary pieces to work with more traditional furnishings and varied nautical accents. Coastal art inspired the accent colors around the room. The green glass lamp makes an appropriate statement adjacent to the white sectional sofa.
Blenko glass amber and green jars rest on a side table in the family room, their hues reflected in the botanical-print draperies from Boussac. The lamp is made from a vintage zinc architectural fragment found in Paris.
The green paisley wallpaper in this bathroom sets the color scheme for the room. Two small lamp fixtures surround the oval mirror topped with green cloth, plaid lamp shapes to shed light on the glass tile stripe, mirror boxes and green towels sitting on the white tile sink below.
A close up on this table lamp showcases the beautiful glass effect of the base. Natural light from the window illuminates the lamp making it shine atop the dark wood table. The blue patterned chairs add color to the bright, stylish design.
Sea green walls create a soft frame in the natural light of this staircase hallway. A warm yellow lampshade over the table lamp draws out the yellow coloring of the stain glass trim surrounding the windows. A wood table fills the space and provides support for a simple display to decorate the area.
Gray upholstered chairs surround this ornate glass-topped dining table. A gold base features a glass with an etched image creating a lavish dining area. Tall blue vases with ornamental grasses provide contrast while still allowing the table to stand out as the main focus in the space.
Hardwood flooring leads up to the wood staircase where the direction of the wood grain changes guiding the movement through the foyer space. A soft sea green wall color above the lower wall white paneling adds subtle color to the design. A rich wood piano is complimented with a stained glass lamp creating an inviting look.
This light and airy kitchen is livened up by a bright pop of color, in this case a bright green on the base cabinets. Glass-front cabinets and a paneled and beamed ceiling serve to add extra character.
Creating welcoming warmth within the flowing spaces of open-layout floorplans is important—and sometimes difficult to achieve. Designer Brett Mickan turned to color to do the trick in this Sydney, Australia kitchen. “The deep green hue makes the walls recede so the pieces within the room stand out. And, because the room looks out through a series of large glass doors towards the garden, I used a deep green tone with a grey base to create a color connection to the garden and focus the view out the windows,” he says.
An assortment of seashells, sea glass and coral decorates the top of the white dresser. A grasscloth finish on the dresser complements the coastal theme of the accessories. A mirror with a herringbone pattern of inlaid bone reflects the light from a seafoam green lamp with a linen shade, creating soft lighting and tying the decor together.
Open glass shelving showcases a fully stocked bar on one side of this basement entertainment room. A white tile backsplash runs under the shelving, and stainless steel chairs line the wood bar countertop. A step across the small hallway takes you into the playroom featuring built in-shelving for container storage. A green rug adds a pop of bright color and fun to the playspace.
A built in bench turns under two windows for a bright and attractive sitting space for this dining room. A glass top table with geometric wood base is a stylish twist on a traditional dining table. A brown frame encircled light hangs above and compliments the coloring of the mix of chocolate brown, neutral and green throw pillows.
A marble-top kitchen island sits in a beautiful, spacious mint green kitchen. Gas lamps and a glass display case add a traditional feel while stainless steel appliances give the space a more contemporary feel.
