Designed by Luis Caicedo, this two-story loft living room features a blue transitional rug, brown leather chairs and a steel coffee table. The oversized artwork on a white brick wall provides a colorful focal point in the room.
To fill a big blank wall, take your favorite vacation photo and upload it to one of the many sites that now print large format photographs. You can create an impactful, personal work of art that's inexpensive, says Atlanta interior designer and home decor store owner Steve McKenzie. He created this room as part of the makeovers given to families by Dwell with Dignity Atlanta, a nonprofit organization.
This Upper West Side penthouse opens up into a warm and inviting foyer, outfitted with modern designs like the black-and-white rug, large framed art, and hallway that leads to a wall of new, oversized windows.
Across from an oversized gray plush sofa sits a white marble fireplace, the mantel of which is used to display a small clock and two decorative cat statues. Above the mantel hangs a framed print of the Marin Headlands and two wall sconces.
Never underestimate the power of art, even in the bathroom. Oversized artwork can make a dominant design statement in a bathroom. Here, the large image and neutral colors of this smiling Buddha, selected by McNeal Walker Interiors for $20 at a home discount store, create a tranquil focal point and draw the eyes up and away from the more functional parts of the room.
This dining room is both a place to eat and entertain, as well as enjoy and showcase the homeowner's art, including a sculptural chandelier, blue custom drapes, three dimensional wall art and console table, and oversized modern dining table and green midcentury modern chairs.
Ornate decorative moldings adorn the walls and ceiling and are complemented with black paint and gold accents. The ceiling is a standout feature which consists of multiple elevations of diamond-shapes designed to draw the eye to the center of the ceiling where an oversized brass chandelier resides. A crescent-shaped macaron bar adds visual interest and additional counter space. The back wall features handsome antique mirrors to serve as the backdrop to the Macaron by Patisse signage embellished with brass-trimmed shelves designed for additional storage and showcasing macaron towers.
