The eye is drawn to an indented panel in the wall covered with black-and-white seashell-patterned wallpaper. A circular mirror adds a brightening effect over the wallpaper that matches the sunny, bright look of the white room. Patterned pink and blue throw pillows decorate the light blue sectional curved around a brass coffee table.
A long, dark orange wall adds color to this long, open design without overpowering the space. A soft gray sofa and matching armchair provide cozy seating, while the floral throw pillows echo the orange hue. A glass coffee table adds a lighter, shinier detail to the design and fits well with the large mirror propped on the wall.
This etagere was also sourced at an Atlanta thrift store. Henderson repurposed the piece with black spray paint to fit with other black metal items like the coffee table and mantel mirror in the room. Better still, if the etagere paint gets chipped in transit you can always cover those glitches with a fresh coat of black spray paint.
Tina and Jared have collaborated on the design of a furniture line that includes everything from their modern streamlined sofa to their marble and leather coffee table. The streamlined aesthetic of the furnishings mirror the aesthetic of the entire home, where minimalism meets materiality to create a uniquely striking design.
A hand-painted black and white floor adds an unexpected, edgy feel to contrast the elegant, detailed gold molding on the ceiling. Streamlined white and gold chairs and a tufted gray sofa are situated around a sleek, reflective black coffee table. A traditional gold mirror hangs above a marble fireplace for added contrast to the contemporary sitting area.
This newly remodeled living room gets lots of light from the two large windows on the back wall of the room. Two full sofas give the space plenty of seating, while the end tables, coffee table, lamps, mirror and mantelpiece help tie together the contemporary style the hosts of Buying and Selling, Drew and Jonathan Scott, were hoping to achieve.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, multiple walls have been removed in the first floor of this home to create an open concept floor plan. The rustic industrial space boasts a comfortable leather sofa, as well as two plush armchairs to provide plenty of seating, a rustic coffee table and industrial end tables, a deep purple rug and a vintage mirror that adds masculine sophistication to the space.
As seen on HGTV’s Property Brothers, the focal point of this bright yet cozy living room is a brick fireplace with a white faux finish. The wood-and-metal coffee table and acacia wood flooring balance the more feminine, floral window treatments. Jonathan and Drew had the rose-colored mirror (a family heirloom of the homeowners) custom framed for the mantel.
Classic meets contemporary in this black and white living room. A traditional white sofa is a solid element joined by zebra-print chairs, a glass coffee table and a vintage mirror-front bar cabinet. An artistic photograph pillow adds a contemporary and artistic detail on the couch. A black rug covers the floor while a red window curtain brings a pop of color.
Creating pattern and texture was the goal for this entire home design, and every room has special details to add depth and movement to the space. Custom lattice woodwork is used to create a feature wall in the foyer and living room. A large floor-length mirror visually expands the space, while streamlined furniture surrounds a gold coffee table for a comfortable seating area.
Color galore! The blues of the sky and greens of grass and plants make this eclectic living room come alive. Vibrant royal-and-white modern art mirrors the boldly printed rug. The comfy sofa is chock-full of multi-color, patterned pillows that can change with the seasons or on a whim. Personal effects -- scattered throughout the space -- provide a window into the owners' lives, and a large coffee table provides an ample area for knick-knacks and plants alike.
A black and white kitchen opens to contemporary sitting and breakfast areas that incorporate colorful accents and varying textures. White waterfall marble counters cover the island’s black cabinetry, as glass pendants hang above. In the sitting area, velvet chairs in a deep cobalt color, accented by pillows with bold geometric prints, sit in front of a trio of large windows. A smooth lucite coffee table is topped with shaggy, sheep’s wool, and is anchored by a neutral rug. Mirrored panels in the nook reflect the room’s natural light, and the white table and mid-century dining chairs add subtle modern touches to the classic space.
A sophisticated luxury salon designed by Drake/Anderson for the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House brings together classicism and modernism wrapped in saffron, umber and ocher hues. The contemporary room has a crystal beaded and sequined chandelier, an upholstered velvet sofa in ocher and 19th century chairs covered with geometric fabric. The coffee tables are asymmetrical with brass and tiger’s eye gemstone. Statement pieces include abstract art and a bronze sculpture. The room opens to a mirrored bar.
Whether you are renting or owning, in a city or town for one year or in a forever home, there is no reason you can't personalize and customize your space. Emily Henderson advises you "go into your attic or box of mementoes" for artwork and sculptural elements in your home in place of expensive, original artworks. "If it's two-dimension and means something to you, it can become a piece of art." The living room coffee table is a repurposed circus elephant stand painted with black spray paint, as is the etagere in the far corner. Circular forms that bring in a hip, Eighties vibe repeat in the couch and mantel mirror and peacock blue and natural wood side tables in the room to bring cohesion and purpose.
“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.”
