This accent wall is made of recycled bricks which add warmth to the apartment's living area. Open shelving in place of a media console gives an airy feel and creates a spot for the owner's turntable and record collection.
To really evoke thoughts of Palm Springs, Calif., designer Michelle Gage layered the living room with hanging plants, vines and various types of cacti. These decorate the bookshelf, too, which proudly displays a bust of Elvis, a flamingo statue and a record collection.
From the pretty pottery on top all the way down to the record collection, this bookcase looks colorful and carefully curated. Our favorite part? The letter board, flamingo and palm trees, which bring a small taste of Palm Springs to this home in New Jersey.
In one corner of the space, designers created a soothing entertainment space for the homeowner. A set of shelves provide storage for a small bar tray, a record player and a record collection, while the walls showcase more of the homeowner's art and some of her own photographs.
Many of the elements that make a stylish, livable home are on display here: houseplants, cozy rugs, vintage wood furniture, touches of luxury in fur and velvet and beloved, meaningful objects, in this case, a vintage record collection, crystals, family photographs and all the details that give a space character and charm.
In this conference room, designers have highlighted the industrial design of this building by adding metal shelving and lighting and a modern table. Personality and warmth are added to this space by the collection of classic toys and records on the shelves.
Artwork is just as much the focal point as the mix of furniture styles in this eclectic seating area. A quadrant of bright abstract art coordinates with the dove gray sofa and lavender occasional chair without being matchy-matchy. A scattering of details personalizes the space: a collection of favorite vinyl records and an acoustic guitar.
The architectural delights of this home seem never-ending, and this massive built-in mirror and bench only add to the wonder. Here Nana Yaa offers another colorful display of books as well as a glimpse of her impressive collection of records. A sentimental, personal touch, the space is decorated with a single photograph of the designer’s mother.
