A full wall of black-and-white photos tie in with this home's mid-century modern design and offer a dramatic focal point in this home office space. Paneled walls are sleek, clean and in keeping with the overall aesthetic.
Original pink terrazzo floors and endless white walls give the home a contemporary gallery feel, making it the perfect spotlight for Bush and Stanley's extensive collection of artwork and found objects.
To create a multifunctional seating area in an attorney’s home office, designer Tim Barber chose a flexible mix of vintage and reproduction pieces. “For a room versatile enough to prepare a brief, host tea with friends, steer fundraising projects, help with homework and occasionally accommodate overflow guests, we designed a plan with pieces light enough to be moved easily — and durable enough to survive frequent rearranging (nothing too precious here),” he says. “The sofa is a Lino Comfort sleeper from Design Within Reach, which makes the office a convertible guest bedroom in a pinch. We love the deep seat cushions and low flat arms: perfect for a power nap. The chairs are vintage 1957 Knoll Saarinen armchairs, reupholstered in Kravet fabric. The Saarinen cocktail table is a reproduction from Room & Board.”
An artist herself and alum of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Jamie Steele has created a way to support art and artists with a spacious gallery Camayuhs, she maintains in her home. Her focus is on group shows of artists from Atlanta and across the country, often spotlighting female artists.
This home used to be a duplex before Good Bones' Mina and Karen reconfigures the entire first floor, removing walls to create an open floor plan and reworking the home's front entrance. When they put the home on the market, they not only staged the home with stylish, modern furniture, they had local artists display their work for the open house. The setup for the open house is featured in this photo.
An asymmetrical gallery wall loaded with inspirational sayings, family initials, graphic sketches and giraffes brings lightness and fun to this eclectic playroom. Retro locker-inspired cabinets almost disappear against the white wall, keeping the space from feeling too busy.
With the addition of a floating shelf and a few favorite art pieces, a simple hallway becomes a striking gallery. The herringbone pattern of the wood floor helps create a sense of movement through the narrow space.
What looks like a large living area is actually a playroom for the kids — but, obviously, one the parents can enjoy as well. Multiple colors create an area that feels inspirational and creative, perfect for drawing, playing games or doing puzzles together. A lengthy sectional sofa provides ample space for a family to curl up in front of a favorite movie.
One corner of this home's living room was turned into an attractive dining area with the addition of a white tulip table and chairs in bold black. Using not just one, but two walls to make a gallery of vintage art and photographs helps define and enclose the space.
