A handmade Kilim area rug is the crowning jewel of this dining room's design, adding warmth and color to the space. Simple linen curtains are hung high above the windows to add height to the space, and the dining room chairs are upholstered in an orange floral fabric. Midcentury modern black chairs flank the ends of the table.
Cheery accessories brighten the look of this kids' bedroom (home to two girls). The colorful kilim rug comes from Mohr + Mcpherson. The neutral Ikea dresser adds storage and a landing base for two brass reading lamps from Target.
Thanks to LDa Architecture & Interiors' stylish surfaces and clever design, this mudroom doesn't look like a mudroom at all. Blond wood veneer covers the storage cabinets and bench; the flooring and kilim rug keep the look from feeling too stark.
Bold, graphic wallpaper in a metallic floral print and vintage furniture, from a Victorian hot pink sofa to the 1970s yellow chair, creates a modern living room with retro appeal. A Moroccan-inspired Kilim rug grounds the space, and gold, floral and white accessories mirror the wallpaper to finish the look.
A scarcely used formal dining room morphed into a favorite spot, complete with a grand piano inherited from Cristina’s family and James’ guitar collection (formerly housed under the guest bed). “I’ll play ‘Tweeter and the Monkey Man’ by The Traveling Wilburys and Fiona ‘plays’ along,” says James. Fun touches: a blue velvet tufted sofa by CR Laine and a bright kilim rug from Chairish.
Just past the subdued tones of the entryway, the living room explodes with wonderful pops of bold color and more delightful patterns. Colorful pillows on the sofa playfully reiterate the vibrant tones of the vintage kilim rug. Also, on the sofa, one of the room’s few touches of black, a mud cloth textile draped decoratively over the back brings an added dimension of pattern and hue to the space.
To add warmth to the white kitchen, designers added White Oak detail around the space's upper cabinet. This addition plays nicely off the White Oak flooring. Subtle texture throughout the space, in details such as the white herringbone tile backsplash and the gray and black veining in the quartzite countertop, kept the space feeling light and airy, while contrast was used sparingly and the Turkish Kilim rug adds pattern and a playful, cheery style to the otherwise neutral color scheme.
For her shed, Sherrod went with a "desert sanctuary" theme. "I'm authentically drawn to the colors jade and coral, so I tied those in where possible," says Sherrod. "As an earthy, crunchy Scorpio, I am inspired by elements of nature, so you'll find cactus plants, live edge teak wood, white moonstones, selenite and quartz, a eucalyptus ladder, jute rug, kilim pillows and linen draperies."
