This basement media room has as much drama off the screen as on. Soft gray walls are punctuated by bold bursts of fuchsia and lilac in the pillows and artwork. A contemporary gray modular sofa with a chaise at one end offers a comfy spot to sprawl for TV viewing.
The open air living room in this Point Lorna, California, villa home spills out toward a courtyard terrace. Plush sofas and wing back chairs dominate the interior, where seating is accented with plush lilac pillows to complement vases of flowers decorating a low marble coffee table. The cylindrical vases throughout the room complement modern solar-powered candelabras overhead.
After parting ways with their beloved Victorian home in San Francisco and relocating to Los Angeles, Caitlin Murray's clients knew they wanted their Craftsman to reflect their Gothic tastes. So Murray created an unexpected, blended design, starting with the living room. Here, lilac ceiling beams and a floral accent wall balance a moody blue velvet sofa and dramatic black area rug.
StudioHue designed this contemporary nursery to grow with the child, but for now a sitting area with a comfortable midcentury modern chair and ottoman have been placed in the room for parent and baby's needs. The soft gray color will allow bolder colors to be introduced with furnishings, knickknacks and other decorative touches, such as the yellow accent table and wall stripe and lilac pillow and wall square. Who says every little girl needs to be in the pink?
