Inspired by David Hockney's 1978 artwork" Swimming Pool with Reflection," the shower is lined with glass mosaic tiles in shades of watery blues in the boy's bathroom at the San Francisco Decorators Showcase 2015. A built-in wall niche is unexpectedly edged with lighting and provides a spot for shower necessities.
In between the home and pool house, a swimming pool fits perfectly into the design. Colorful wall art beside the pool was incorporated to showcase the homeowner's collection of artwork. Poolside lounge seating and a nearby bar make this spot the perfect place to entertain.
A mix of antique and contemporary decor creates interest in this powder room. A gallery wall of antique doorknobs makes quite the statement beside the toilet, while above the toilet, swimming fishes in a simple black frame bring a calming vibe to the transitional design.
Like a gorgeous men's suit, this sophisticated living room features elegant, tailored lines and impeccable details. Simple gray walls call attention to the room's beautiful crown molding and patterned ceiling.
Use removable adhesive photo strips rated for 5 to 15 pound items to ensure the artwork will stay put on a gallery wall without using nails. Be sure to allow the strips to cure according to package directions before hanging artwork. The mix of pattern and color in the displayed art adds vibrancy perfectly suited to a lively dorm room design. Mixing framed pieces with unframed pieces adds shape and dimension.
Formerly a home office, this small space is better suited for a reading lounge or meditation room. The walls have received a fresh coat of gray paint. Soothing art, furniture and accessories were brought in to create a relaxing atmosphere.
Small but oh-so-convenient, the onsite changing room of this pool house ensures a quick dip when the mood strikes. It is curtained off from view, but the powder blue interior walls echo the colors of the swimming pool. The line art and rustic bench are nice touches for the space as well.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
