This traditional table holds various decorations to add color and art to the neutral walls and brown leather sofa. A blue bird figurine, blue goblet and blue coffee table books are complemented by forsythia branches and gold leaf picture frames.
Olaniyi’s design never ceases to delight with its clever touches. Just above the nightstand this small piece of text art reminds her of the need to settle down before sleeping. Unsurprisingly, Olaniyi delights in her ability to surprise with her design choices. “The inside of our home is totally not what anyone expects,” she says. “Everything on the outside of the home is cookie-cutter traditional, inside we go for the swanky vibes. No matter their age, people feel right at home here. Everyone who enters gets a warm hug from us and our home, and that makes us proud.”
Neutral tones bring cohesion to a mix of styles in this eclectic living room. A wingback chair provides extra seating when entertaining and the root-style side table adds to the earthy color palette of this living room.
The living room features a mirrored oval end table trimmed in gold, the perfect metallic accent to the deep blue hue used throughout the space. The table provides just enough room for a dramatic gold lamp and a small glass hard liquor decanter with a matching pair of glasses.
This buttercream living room features a traditional wood end table and brown leather sofa with nailhead trim. A natural wood coffee table adds a rustic touch, while a stone fireplace provides the focal point of the room. Just through the large windows is a view of the stunning backyard pond.
A beautiful bay window floods this white and green living room in soft light. A modern coffee table mixes with a traditional end table, and a white, slipcovered sofa and green armchairs add simple elegance.
A powder blue sofa with mid-century lines is juxtaposed against traditional end tables and a sleek fireplace surround to create a creative mix of styles. Bright white trim pops against apricot walls, while green and printed throw pillows stand out on the sofa.
A loveseat is flanked by two upholstered armchairs. Above, an 18th century English painting amplifies the Victorian influence on the room. The rouge-patterned loveseat is adorned with throw pillows and accented by small end table.
Every item in the room was handpicked to be part of the stunning whole. This end table is sculptural in creation and topped with a golden tray and sunburst sculptures that go wonderfully with the painting behind them.
Agate, geodes and the fun addition of porcupine quills add an unexpected flourish to this tablescape featuring echeveria, tillandsia and cactus. “This is a simple design to try at home,” says Sara Fried of Fete Nashville: Luxury Weddings, a wedding and event planning firm. “Unlike many high-end tablescapes, succulents and cacti can be a fool-proof design option. They arrive with personality.”
“I love when a client chooses to about-face from the traditional and opt for succulent tablescapes,” says Fried. “I’m beginning to see a shift with what was once a minimalist look into fully-designed, color-driven pieces packed with design elements that span geode, quills, feathers, stone, and wood. It’s striking in a way that floral often can’t provide.”
Set on either side of a tall four-poster bed, end tables in the same finish but differing shapes lend visual interest in this guest bedroom from the 2013 HGTV Dream Home. Concrete and steel table lamps stand in contrast to more traditional forms.
This traditional living room features an elegant gallery wall, which includes framed pictures of various sizes, one large mirror and two small mirrors. Mismatched end tables keep the space interesting rather than uniform.
This breakfast area was intended to be a casual, comfortable space for the family. The table is reclaimed wood. Yellow end chairs are sunny, cheerful and a fun pairing with the triangle-shaped light fixture.
