A wooden ceiling fan whirls in this transitional living room with soft gray walls. The space is well-lit by the oversized windows, with a neutral toned, tufted sectional sofa, dark wooden coffee table and blue velvet chair.
Beyond the bar is a library with a 12-foot ceiling featuring two belt-driven ceiling fans. Wood built-in bookcases provide storage and display space, and chic white chairs add an unexpected jolt of modern style.
The inviting queen trim-lined bed with a fully enclosed wood base and extra tall upholstered headboard has clean, modern lines. On the ceiling above the bed sits a 52-inch, oil-rubbed bronze ceiling fan that cools the space down on warm nights.
This second-story bedroom's outstanding feature is its sliding barn door. The wood tones match those of the contemporary stairway leading up to it. The bed incorporates a built-in bookcase, and the ceiling fan adds a midcentury modern element to the space.
A variety of throw pillows softens the modern lines of the sectional sofa and Barcelona chair in this casual family area. The empire-style pendants near the windows add a traditional touch and a fun counterpoint to the clean lines of the Artemis ceiling fan.
Soft pink walls carry into every detail of this sweet, contemporary nursery, from the bedding to the modern artwork to the petal-like blades of the ceiling fan. A magenta Roman shade is crisp at the window, and a heavy, blue velvet bergere grounds and balances the space.
The master bedroom was lacking in ambient light, so its existing ceiling fan was taken down and replaced with a wood and iron French chandelier. French chandeliers usually evoke a feeling of femininity, but due to its black painted finish, the chandelier used in this master bedroom takes on a more gender-neutral appearance. For modern flair, globe bulbs were used rather than standard flame bulbs.
A major challenge for this design project was the couple's distinct design sensibilities — the husband is a fan of midcentury modern design, while the wife longed to add traditional touches of warmth and character to the space. Here, a vintage, midcentury Vistosi ceiling fixture and framed advertising poster speak to the husband's design style, while the blue velvet settee and roll-arm chaise add a traditional touch. Bold, bright fabrics on the upholstered pieces bring vigor to the neutral backdrop of the walls and rug.
