The owners' personalities peek through in the living room, thanks to an abstract painting and small sculpture on a pedestal. Against the far wall, a round mirror breaks up all the clean lines and reflects the natural light.
Contemporary art sculptures rappel down the concrete walls of this modern home living room. The glass staircase with steel and concrete elements provides an unobstructed view of the outdoors with exposed wood ceilings overhead.
Three Sixty Design created fluid transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces for a client in suburban Denver, and the Colorado American Society of Landscape Architects gave it a 2014 honor award for residential design (over $100,000). The design makes the dream home a living work of art, with actual sculptures among a water feature in one portion of the 3-acre site.
This comfortable living room uses a neutral color palette to let the bold contemporary artwork take center stage. Sculptures surround the comfortable sitting area, which includes a sofa, two armchairs and a large rectangular coffee table.
A well-composed vignette of art and books looks striking tucked against this stairwell. Because of the tone of the bookshelf wood against the steps, he eye becomes nearly blind to the detail of the unit and sees only the decorative elements. That really makes the art pop!
Black and green wall decor adds texture and dimension to this stark white space. A floating white sculpture is highlighted by the skylight above, and to the right of the staircase, a green-themed sitting area features a wall of built-in bookshelves.
The crisp white walls of this sitting room help accent the sculptural qualities of the Regency spoon back chair and silver tripod table. The modern art sculpture on the wall adds a touch of creativity to the room without distracting from the overall feeling of tranquility.
A pair of clear glass table lamps bookend knickknacks atop a console table and a striking modern wall sculpture. The white piece of art provides contrast to the room's navy walls, while complementing the lampshades and decor.
Decorative art pieces make a statement around every corner in the contemporary home, striking furniture pieces included. Topped with a modern sculpture, this wood and chrome console is work of art in its own right.
The fantasy continues in the dining room. While the white walls and hardwood floors may be standard, even typical for a Brooklyn brownstone, what happens between them is anything but. In this room a surrealist light fixture designed by Paul hangs low over a thoroughly modern set of dining chairs. For a contrast from the metal furnishings, a vintage Norman Cherner armchair captains the table. On the floor, a hand-painted rug brings a big splash of color to the space which is presided over by even more fantastic sculptures of creatures, seashells and plants.
This stairway is filled with natural light by a skylight while a dramatic sculpture complements the blue accent wall at the back of the hall. A lighted art piece adds another modern touch and anchors the space.
