A wood paneled ceiling is a beautiful accent strip for this hallway. Light hardwood runs in the direction of the hall leading past the sofa and glass sliding doors. The chrome legs of the stylish table are complemented by the chrome lamp base. Small pieces of art add a touch of personality and style to the clean design.
This small home office space features a white desk and upholstered chair with black nailhead trim. Navy accents, such as the glass vases on the desk and a runner with white flowers, provide a pop of color, while a gold leaf table lamp adds unexpected flair. Large windows offer natural light and a sprawling city view.
Silver, gold and black triangles cover the back wall like confetti for a fun, whimsical detail that makes a major statement. The bohemian textile skirt packs a seriously stylish punch on the simple white crib. A brass floor lamp with an attached glass table picks up metallic tones from the triangle accent wall to amp up the glam factor.
The tone-on-tone, neutral design scheme of this home office makes the room feel even larger than it really is. Light sources abound, including recessed lighting, track lighting, a contemporary light fixture, a table lamp and large windows. The brass and glass desk takes up minimal visual space and is a key design element in the room.
The high style of this living room recalls Hollywood in its heyday. Deep, soft upholstery contrasts the clean lines of the coffee table and art deco desk. While mostly neutral grays and beiges were used throughout, the purple Murano glass lamp and the eggplant-colored pillow add a bit of color.
This stylish living room boasts two navy sectional sofas paired with a set of white and black polka dot armchairs. The wood burning fireplace offers a cozy touch, while two glass lamps sit atop a pair of console tables on either side of the sofas. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a picturesque view of the mountains.
Gilded accents lift up a modern living room and counterbalance the weight of the dark wood walls and floors. The paneled space features a walnut wood credenza with hand-blown glass crystal disks and a steel frame and hardware. Geometric gold sconces, globe-shaped table lamps and a watercolor framed in a repurposed antique gilded frame complete the vignette.
This coastal style living room features a bamboo shade and floral patterned curtains framing a lovely picture window revealing a beachy setting. A cottage style side table displays a quaint lamp, coral, and vintage glass bottles, lending to the coastal vibe of the space. A comfy sofa with white throw and floral and solid pillows invites guests to relax and enjoy the setting.
Designer Amy Elbaum carefully selected accent furnishings for this living room renovation with an eye on simple lines and quiet sophistication. The beautiful round mirror that hangs above a simple marble console table makes a strong statement, yet both pieces blend effortlessly together for a unified look. The touch of blue in the glass lamps is another graceful expression here.
Chris mixed modern with traditional to create a transitional design style. He paired a tailored, button-tufted, 1960s-style sofa with an ovular, bronze and glass coffee table that has more traditional lines. For rustic, masculine texture, Chris opted for end tables made of driftwood with glass tops. A pair of mid-century modern table lamps added a touch of the unexpected to the space. Altogether the furniture arrangement came to slightly over $2000. After searching for art, Chris couldn't find anything he connected with and instead had a professional photographer shoot his collectible Cutlass convertible, and then had it framed as fine art.
The inviting queen bed includes a custom bed frame made with whitewashed planks of wood that create a look similar to a classic white fence. An industrial-style chest with metal frame and engineered wood finish on one side has three drawers for handy storage of bedroom essentials, with a clear glass table lamp with cotton shade on top for nighttime reading.
Away from the office the home continues to expand, stretching into this beautiful dining room. Here, as in the living room, the couple's modern tastes complement the industrial bones of the space for an enticing combination. Black continues to be a strong accent color here, included through a pair of sculptural table lamps and one very statuesque planter. The glass top table and patterned, silver-metallic pendants solidify the modern aesthetic alongside art on both walls.
French touches in the lines of the furnishings combine with crisp accessories in this traditional and elegant bedroom. Two styles of bedside tables are the same height, adding interest to the space while allowing the designer to maintain symmetry with lighting and artwork. Framed photos are hung low, pulling the eye to the room's focal point — the bed — and balancing the scale of the petite glass lamps.
This neutral living room takes a cue from the ocean with its seashell overhead light, nautical framed artwork and blue glass table lamps. The custom-made sectional features a white and tan patterned indoor/outdoor upholstery, making it the perfect choice for a waterfront condo. Blue and coral seashell pillows complete the coastal look of the space.
In this basement family room, a storage wall transforms the space into a welcoming guest room in a snap thanks to a built-in Murphy bed. "We designed the room to accommodate the family and their guests," says designer Laura Stein. "Night-table trays pull out of the custom built-ins to hold a lamp and small essentials, like a glass of water, leaving plenty of floor space."
This bedroom brings the outdoors inside. A chandelier over the bed is made from painted antlers, and the furniture is rough-hewn. Tan, white, and green plaids in the bed linens and window treatment lend to the rustic feel of the space. A rustic wood chair and coffee table offer the perfect sitting area for relaxing and enjoying a good book. Houseplants lend to the natural element while a green glass bedside lamp helps illuminate the space and tie in the color scheme. A natural jute throw rug anchors the entire area.
In the master bedroom, designers took advantage of the natural light that spilled in from the sliding glass doors that provide patio access by choosing a neutral color for the walls that reflects that light and anchors the space. Then, fun colored bed linens were placed on the bed to give the room a little personality and bold pops of color, while the geometric rug beneath the bed helps to break the space up and give it some definition. Finally, designers added an Asian inspired headboard and industrial nightstands with bright orange table lamps to finish off the eclectic space.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
