Contemporary photography by Richard Learoyd and Richard Misarch add drama to this eclectic living room. Neutral overstuffed furniture offsets the deep red walls, while layered area rugs add texture underfoot. Decorative molding sets a formal tone overhead.

Open floor next to the shuffleboard set up shows off the cobblestone look and red-brown coloring of the floor. A trio of black and white photography with large white space gives a modern look to decorate the wall. A black ceiling adds texture and creates a shadow finish perfect for an entertainment room.
Provocative artwork in the stairway vestibule sets the tone for a layered, transitional living space with a distinct Hollywood Regency vibe. A cowhide rug and gauzy draperies blend with clean-lined upholstery and traditional architectural details. The neutral palette is restful and allows artwork and accessories to pop.
A photography grid adorns one wall of the guest bedroom with a rural southern motif. “I like every house to have a mix of different mediums and that’s where photography comes in,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “Anytime I am showcasing photography I like to stick with odd numbers so I picked up nine different prints and put them together in a grid pattern.”
The dining room was awkward and small, so designers covered the walls with a fun, gold malachite wallpaper and addd a linear chandelier to distract from the odd lines on the space and draw the eye to the center of the space. To bring in a bigger sense of richness, designers brought in bold purples to accent the gold wallpaper. At the entrance to the space, a surfboard and photography add a playful contrast to the formal, elegant dining space.
