This white midcentury modern living room features a number of midcentury elements such as the chandelier, wall mirror, occasional chairs, coffee table and console table. Pink pillows and a pink patterned area rug help soften the look of the space.
This elegant traditional bedroom has a number of beautiful touches, from the coffered ceiling to the Federal-style rug. The walls and fireplace surround are painted in a creamy white as a backdrop to the furnishings. The floral-patterened window treatment and bed canopy add a fun visual element to the space and a tufted chair in front of the fireplace creates a sitting area under a large wrought iron chandelier.
A designer's work is never actually done. For most designers there is always a little something extra that could be done to take our designs to the next level. However, the only thing I could find to do in the Blehm's master sitting area was to adjust the lampshade because the room and its views were flawlessly picturesque. In this space, Angela used one of my favorite hospitality-inspired design tricks. She concealed the drapery hardware behind the crown moulding, thereby creating a clean and elevated look. The moulding becomes the cornice and the pleated linen drapery opens to expose the outdoors like a movie screen. How's that for drama?! My number one pick in this image is the upholstered bench. It manages to be retro, mod, and current all at the same time. Angela's is fearless in her use of white furniture and rugs throughout the family home. She's proof that it can be done, not to mention, done with her three young children and pets!
