This contemporary bedroom comes with a furry friend...on the wall, that is. Art is used throughout the home to bring personality and depth to the rooms. On the bed, global textiles contrast the sleek, clean lines of the nightstand and lamp.
These woven home office chairs bring a textured vibe to this home office, adding a pop of color with red pillows. A red Asian-style box used as a table and a neutral area rug made from natural fibers add rich details.
For this guest cottage, the designers' goals were to create a cheerful escape on a minimal budget. Layering bright colors on top of whites and neutrals gave it a clean, bright feel using simple, affordable pieces.
A sprinkling of metallics and sassy red accents perk up this sitting room's cool gray base. Shape plays an important role, too, in the room's overall look: the bars of the round coffee table, pillows with chevron stripes and globe pendant lights.
Who's afraid of mixing patterns? Not these armchairs, with their leopard print cushions, monogrammed pillows and cherry red piping. Keeping all the prints in the same black, white and red color family makes the wild combos work.
In the entryway to the home, a sage bench beckons weary travelers to take a load off. This bench is the anchor piece in this space, tying the contemporary painting to the oriental rug that rests beneath it. The gold end table offers a bit of glitter to this small space, helping to seamlessly bring the traditional and contemporary styles together.
Tall white walls, minimal decoration and natural lighting accent the spacious feel in this master bedroom. The gray bed linens are accented with a pop of red from a pair of throw pillows. Sleek, contemporary table lamps sit on either side of the bed, and a neutral rug softens the hardwood floor.
The red-striped pillow on this kitchen banquette was made from an antique French flour sack, but you can create a similar look using vintage dish towels, says author Susan Sully. For a weekend craft, make no-sew accent pillows with the dish towels or another fabric of your choosing to add color to your kitchen.
