Turning right off the foyer leads guests into the owners' personal library. Wanting this space to feel carefully curated -- as though all the odds and ends were collected from travels abroad -- the designers combined a tufted sofa, traditional side table, floral armchair and a zebra-print rug. Walls painted bright blue help showcase the traditional wainscoting.
This loft-style dining room features an eclectic vibe, blending a rustic farmhouse table with traditional brown leather armchairs at either end. Wicker chairs are positioned on either side of the table, while a vibrant yellow art canvas adds a modern touch. A mini lampshade chandelier finishes the look of the space.
Jeffrey Brooks Interior Design brings you this elegant formal dining room that marries peach, brown and neutral tones. Four neutral contemporary dining chairs pair with two brown velvet chairs at both ends of the table. A traditional dark wood dining table is set with formal table settings and ready for entertaining, and a crystal chandelier adds a final elegant touch to the space.
A traditional tufted sofa with nailhead trim is brightened with a yellow and a purple patterned throw pillow. Lavender pottery sits on the glass coffee table, and a darker purple lamp rests on the matching end table. A contemporary purple rug adds graphic punch to the space, while abstract painted canvases bring a soft touch to the walls.
Unique pieces create a lasting impact in this corner of a grand living room. The small glass end table is a delicate pairing to a formal Greek key-patterned armchair. Plantation shutters are an elegant and functional design element that bring a touch of traditional style to the space.
A 3-D focal wall sets the tone for this polished living space. Floating benches stabilized by an indoor pergola-style structure anchor the room in industrial design. Flashy gold end tables and creative traditional-style chair backs on the benches add a touch of elegance to the space.
The homeowners love to entertain and wanted an elegant, traditional dining room where they could comfortably host family and friends. This dining room features a chocolate color palette with touches of blue and is filled with high-end pieces, such as a hand-knotted Tibetan silk and wool rug, a reclaimed elm table and a table setting consisting of sterling silver, European crystal and fine china.
Chris mixed modern with traditional to create a transitional design style. He paired a tailored, button-tufted, 1960s-style sofa with an ovular, bronze and glass coffee table that has more traditional lines. For rustic, masculine texture, Chris opted for end tables made of driftwood with glass tops. A pair of mid-century modern table lamps added a touch of the unexpected to the space. Altogether the furniture arrangement came to slightly over $2000. After searching for art, Chris couldn't find anything he connected with and instead had a professional photographer shoot his collectible Cutlass convertible, and then had it framed as fine art.
In the entryway to the home, a sage bench beckons weary travelers to take a load off. This bench is the anchor piece in this space, tying the contemporary painting to the oriental rug that rests beneath it. The gold end table offers a bit of glitter to this small space, helping to seamlessly bring the traditional and contemporary styles together.
For a family with three young children, access and durability were key kitchen design considerations for designer Vanessa DeLeon. After considering a traditional island with counter-height seating, she opted for a more manageable, easier-access arrangement: a 36"-high island with a built-in banquette and stylish, generously sized dining table by End Grain Furniture and Design featuring a reclaimed top and glass overlay.
