Scour thrift stores and antique shops for brass coffee tables and other fixtures and you might find yourself transforming your living room from ho-hum to va-va-voom. Designer Rivers Spencer brings the glamour with choice gold features in this stunning living room.
Yard sale and thrift shop treasures give this eclectic living room a playful "collected over time" look. The entire room cost well under $1,500. Mixing vintage, contemporary, and traditional pieces with animal print and coral red accents feels fresh. A full wall of windows makes the room seem spacious.
High-gloss gray makes a dramatic statement on the millwork of this traditional study. An industrial iron table topped with a range of antiquities gives the space the eccentric feel of a curiosity shop, while a curved, tufted blue settee offers a great personal touch to the room.
A gold sconce, a single gold tchotchke and two gold candleholders are all designer Phoebe Howard needed to create a subtle sense of luxury in this room. Follow her cue and shop your home or garage sales and home stores for just a few classic gold accents to add a feeling of wealth to your living room.
To add storage for clothes as well as important documents and papers, a small antique heirloom desk was used in the room rather than a standard dresser. A wood refinishing shop updated the old wood finish with a pecan finish appropriate for the style of the desk. Now the historical value remains intact, but with a fresh look.
In this perfectly curated living room, a marble coffee table continues the trend of natural materials in the home, while the sofa continues to fill the space with earth tones and texture. The metal legs of the table are a subtle contrast to the layers of stone, brick and wood, offering a feminine touch.
