Cozy and sophisticated, this condo's living room includes a small, round coffee table grounded by a black and white striped rug, midcentury black leather armchair and a navy blue velvet sofa. By the window, a plush daybed and skinny metal bookshelf offer a stylish place for reading and relaxing.
From floor to ceiling, the entire dining room features rustic, exposed grain wood. Strong statement pieces, like a navy blue buffet, mirrored chandelier and even a simple bear portrait, are used to break up the wood. The comfortable dining room is made of a wood slab table, gray bench seats and slipcovered armchairs.
While weathered leather gives this Chesterfield sofa extra character, nothing adds more personality to the living room than the cowhide ottomans. Blue armchairs, a vintage framed map and a brass bar cart round out the eclectic, masculine living space.
A stone wall and rough-hewn ceiling beams add and Old World sensibility to this transitional dining room. The neutral palette is dressed up with colorful artwork and plush navy-blue dining chairs. Wine storage built in to the room makes choosing the right vintage for meals a snap.
A natural wood accent wall sets a lovely textured background for the mix of wall decor in this beautiful boy's nursery. Inspirational quotes, a labradoodle and creative book page letters keep the nursery happy and colorful. Bigger pops of bright color come from the graphic patterns on the rug, crib cushions, ottoman and throw pillow and the vibrant navy blue velvet armchair.
This modern master bedroom features a tray-style ceiling with a visually interesting hexagonal chandelier. The space also includes a brown accent wall with a large abstract painting hanging above the head of the upholstered bed. Large windows provide a stunning view of the city, and two navy blue armchairs form a small sitting area at the foot of the bed.
Well-chosen accessories contribute to this living room's seafaring atmosphere. A multipaned mirrored storage cabinet hangs on the wall over a sleek console table, while an oversized ottoman is positioned between a leather Chesterfield sofa and matching blue armchairs. A framed vintage map polishes off the nautical design.
This soft hued living room features a neutral sofa, ivory armchairs and a brown leather tufted ottoman that also serves as a coffee table. The fireplace mantel is decorated with cream candles in glass vases and vintage figurines, while a neutral area rug with a blue floral diamond shape pattern covers the dark hardwood floors.
The best part about the cottage is the unexpected nooks that are tucked away throughout the space like little surprises. As well, “Every room is full of unique accessories,” says Kate. “Each cup, every trinket is special: There’s Kate Marker Home pieces, vintage finds from Michigan and elements from the surrounding town,” says Kate. Her navy and blue dining room, complete with sliding barn doors and a TK Brand rope pendant, is a testament to the cottage’s nautical side.
Sometimes a sense of humor in an otherwise tailored space can create a not-so-serious feeling. While Chris' bedroom walls are covered in a pinstripe wool menswear suit fabric, the juxtaposition of a white resin moose head against the tailored walls creates a light-hearted element of surprise. Since the wall application set Chris back approximately $1300, he saved on furniture by choosing a vintage wood dresser he scored for $125 at a flea market. Since dark-colored accessories could easily get lost in the navy blue tone of the pinstriped wall covering, bulky ultra-white vases were grouped together to create a strong contrast.
