Black and white vertically striped curtains frame the large window in this living room. A pair of modern arm chairs and a bright, red couch face in to the plastic coffee table keeping the view open to the animal hide rug. An abstract art canvas breaks up the white space on the walls and blends all the colors used throughout the room.
Though often overlooked, a mudroom is a canvas that gives homeowners, "an opportunity to show personality in a creative way,” says designer Ana Claudia, adding that they’re also a great first impression for guests. Here, Ana paired vintage mid-century Eames tandem chairs with sculptural Reality Hand hooks from Areaware. She then softened the whole look with a jute rug and South American vintage prints (a nod to the homeowner’s culture).
The owner of this French Country home wanted to redesign her house to better fit her girly style, so she added some bold, stylish pieces to her living room. The milk-white deer head, the pink chair, animal hide rug and clear coffee table make a unique statement in the space, while the traditional fireplace, nude canvas chairs and elegant sconces keep the classy tradition of the French Country style alive in her home.
