Here's a fresh twist on the stodgy library: The bookcase was customized to fit around the pale gray settee, then filled with colorful books and accessories. The room is a perfect example of the rule the designers used throughout the home: Neutral building materials only, then color layered in for a firework finish.
This living room has a beautiful settee with green cushion to match the green and white patterned wallpaper. Visually elongate windows by hanging draperies high on the wall, right under crown molding, to create a long visual line the eye follows up, giving the impression the ceiling is much higher. An oversized wallpaper pattern works a similar magic, visually stretching walls to make a small room feel more spacious. Image courtesy of Thibaut.
This little alcove is the perfect spot for a breakfast nook in this home's eat-in kitchen. The trellis-patterned valance adds style without blocking natural light, while the curved bench provides seating with style.
A traditional upholstered settee creates a cozy sitting area by the window in this transitional bedroom. Vertical lines of the blue beadboard walls mimic the ceiling, mixing cottage design with more contemporary elements like graphic drapes and colorful throw pillows.
Green patterned walls, a graceful chandelier and framed artwork ensure this traditional foyer is anything but boring. A lovely beige settee offers sophisticated seating, and a classic wood staircase leads upstairs.
This cozy settee was chosen by the homeowners to be a comfortable spot for reading to their daughters. Bought at Crate and Barrel, designer Stephanie Rossi customized it with pale linen upholstery and a wide central stripe of dark purple wool.
A charming peach settee mimics the color of the walls in this classic sitting room — just in a slightly lighter shade. A small coffee table with a lucite base and a traditional armchair with vibrant blue upholstery bring spunk and charisma to the space.
This sunny nook becomes a high-style breakfast space with a custom sofa that fits perfectly in its corner location. White slipcover-style upholstery allows a row of colorful pillows to pop in the space, while an eclectic mix of chairs complements the home's boho chic aesthetic.
