In the playroom, bright colors make the space come to life. A large, customizable sofa gives parents a place to watch their little ones create, while three small tables and a stuffed animal, all three with bold primary colors, give the kids a place to play.
The goal for this long, rectangular space was to create multiple seating areas for various uses: an open entry area, a central formal seating area for entertaining and a more casual TV-watching area for the family near the rear. Bold artwork and furniture upholstered in vibrant primary colors invigorate the neutral space.
A major challenge for this design project was the couple's distinct design sensibilities — the husband is a fan of midcentury modern design, while the wife longed to add traditional touches of warmth and character to the space. Here, a vintage, midcentury Vistosi ceiling fixture and framed advertising poster speak to the husband's design style, while the blue velvet settee and roll-arm chaise add a traditional touch. Bold, bright fabrics on the upholstered pieces bring vigor to the neutral backdrop of the walls and rug.
This wood dining room table is in a bright, yellow room with pops of red throughout. The contemporary wall mirror adds depth to this vibrant space. Navy cushions and place mats complete the room's primary color scheme.
This central seating area is geared toward entertaining, incorporating an eclectic mix of furnishings and blending midcentury-inspired pieces with more traditional silhouettes. The primary colors in the large abstract painting inspired the room's red, blue and yellow color palette.
Five chunky barstools line the kitchen island to provide an eat-in space in addition to prep space. Bold yellow countertops, a blue waterfall countertop on the island and bright red pendant lights bring splashes of primary color to the palette.
