Bold, graphic wallpaper in a metallic floral print and vintage furniture, from a Victorian hot pink sofa to the 1970s yellow chair, creates a modern living room with retro appeal. A Moroccan-inspired Kilim rug grounds the space, and gold, floral and white accessories mirror the wallpaper to finish the look.
This breakfast area is a cheerful mix of patterns: Bernhardt dining chairs with a graphic back and nailhead trim surround a round Coddington-designed walnut table. A silver leaf iron pendant, roman shades and a Moroccan-print accent rug complete the space. The artwork in the adjoining living room is by Monika Steiner.
The play between wood and steel is a design motif repeated throughout the interior of HGTV Dream Home 2014, as seen in the living room. A soft, shaggy wool rug with a subtle Moroccan-style pattern anchors the space, defined by a collection of furnishings — both traditional and contemporary in silhouette — that partner to create an eclectic look.
Fresh pink patterned drapery, a stunning wool Moroccan area rug and a modernized mantel make this living room a happy and elegant conversation space. Originally a colonial style mantel, the new look was achieved with drywall and beautiful bright white plaster, which reflects natural light into the room and creates a fresh and modern feel. Designers emphasized the area with a chocolate brown accent wall above. Flanking the mantel with matching cabinets brings balance and adds storage.
To complement as well as contrast the style of the living room upstairs, the family room was designed to to be the “mid-century modern moment” of the home. For Tze, the purpose was to avoid having a space where every item appeared to have been bought at the same time. To help accomplish that, pieces like the Moroccan rug help to break up the uniform feel of the space.
The great room in a lakeside living room has a nestled sofa and a fireplace large enough in which to stand. Carter Kay Interiors was tasked with giving the room a more human scale and creating a welcoming, cozy environment for small and large gatherings. The custom high-back Saladino sofa is scaled to relate to the fireplace opening and mantel. The designers had horizontal iron rods made for the draperies and had those same rods turn the corner, adding vertical straps to create an ever-changing art wall. The room also has a vintage iron and suede chair, a pair of iron lamps and lots of pillows for a cozy corner to watch the boats float by. The room is very carefully layered with rugs: sisal, Moroccan and hide, and textured chairs.
