A neutral palette provides a backdrop for dramatic turquoise and burnt orange accents in this transitional, beachside living room. The homeowners wished for a relaxing, versatile space for reading, hanging out and entertaining friends. Display cabinets and storage nooks add extra function to the room, and custom teal leather swivel chairs allow easy conversation and enjoyment of ocean views. Reclaimed wood niches maximize seating in the room.
A vintage rocking horse (it belonged to the mom of this nursery's resident) is a favorite detail in Baby's room. The vintage vibe was one that guided many of the design choices including the artwork and accessories. Paint color: Sherwin Williams Aloof Gray, Oeuf crib, Anthropologie curtains, Birch Lane bookcase, Homegoods swivel chair, West Elm tree stump table, Etsy pendant light, Rugs Direct rug.
The subtle masculinity of the condo also includes elements of Zen and relaxation, whether it's the ultra deep sofa created for many to enjoy at once or the oversized swivel chairs in the main room. If someone is ever lucky enough to see this high-rise jewel, it may not be a bad idea to toast the town from the fourteen-foot custom bar with floor-to-ceiling windows. Viva Las Vegas!
The design goal in the family room was to maximize seating using stylish and comfortable pieces, so designers set up the main seating area with a custom, gray velvet sofa, a pair of velvet, pin-stripe wingback chairs and a par of wood framed swivel chairs. For a punch of pattern, they layered a zebra print cowhide rug under a brass and glass cocktail table, while a rectangular Swarovski crystal chandelier brings glam into the space without blocking the view of the city below. Finally, an element of art was added to the large TV wall with metallic gold and silver discs that perfectly finish off the design of the room.
Comfortable armchairs in this modern shore house are positioned between the living room and kitchen, offering a panoramic view of the ocean. The chairs swivel in order to make conversations easy no matter where guests are gathering. A lovely painting of a swimmer brings a beachy feel to the space.
This pristine pair of swivel chairs was passed down from Micah’s grandmother. They’re a perfect way to inject a little generational history into a young family’s home. Family heirlooms are always a good idea. You’ll notice that below the white painted crown molding is a white picture rail. In many older homes, the walls are plaster as opposed to drywall. Plaster is much harder and more difficult to repair; therefore, a piece of molding/rail is used as a surface to attach hardware and wire, and then your artwork to. Preservation is key in caring for older homes. The Stansells cleverly repeated the teal color on the drapery panels, but used white sheers on the window’s interior for semi-privacy while still allowing light in.
While the view is spacious and an ever-changing source of entertainment, the furnishings address the comforts of the family. A curved sofa seats larger groups and has a custom curved bookcase that snugs into the back of it. A swivel side chair can be used for reading or easily rotated to gaze out at the view, and a large ottoman creates overflow seating.
The home office space needed to have plenty of storage and function, so designers added a lacquer and stained oak custom built-in unit with open shelving, cabinets and drawers, as well as a usable workspace for the desktop computer. When the computer is not in use, the free-standing desk provides another work space. To warm up the space and create a contrast from the monochromatic colors, designers brought in a brown, swivel, office chair for a comfy place to sit.
Used on the wall of a home office, blue paneling is an interesting geometric and textural feature. The modular desk includes a tabletop that swivels to extend the work space. A metallic ottoman and modern desk chair complete the contemporary look.
Light yellow walls provide a bright background for this contemporary sitting room. A black modern swiveled lamp stands next to a modern lounge rocking chair with white cushions. A striped pillow compliments the colors of the multicolor blocked rug. Tall black and white shelves provide perfect book storage.
This dining room is ready for festive fetes. Kay Douglass Interiors used bright and bold Hermes pieces, including a mobile and its signature orange for the custom velvet banquettes in the contemporary space. The chic dining chairs are in gray velvet and other seating swivels. The stool has a faceted cube shape. The paintings were found at a French market. The room was in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays.
This chair is one half of five different sets of swivels in the house. We sourced the chairs for the room’s original design scheme and simply had them reupholstered for the update. The Jim Thompson, cut velvet applied to the chairs’ outside back was also used for the window cornice, which cleverly conceals motorized linen shades that help to control sun exposure. For the interior and seat, we used a solid velvet inspired by the accent fabric and finished clean with a coordinating leather welt. The plant thriving in the background was a gift given to the homeowners on their wedding day, over twenty-five years ago.
