Adding a single piece of original artwork is always a great way to start (or complete) a room design, and can take a family room from basic to stunning in the time it takes you to hang a picture. To highlight the unique artwork, keep other wall art to a minimum, and paint the walls white or another neutral hue to provide a backdrop for the art.
Small but striking, this contemporary living room uses a rug to set apart its seating area. The cream sofa blends into the neutral walls helping the sightline feel open while custom elements like the unique artwork punctuate the sophisticated design.
This contemporary living room has lots of personality. The sofa is over stuffed and provides a comfortable place to relax and enjoy friends and family, while the throw pillows and artwork add color to an otherwise neutral space. The feather starburst on the wall adds a surprising texture, departing from the smoothness of the flat wall.
A bright yellow art piece adds sunshine over the sofa in this contemporary living room. Unique end tables with crossed leg design compliments the wood arm panel on the sofa and low, wood coffee table. Blue throw pillows add a hint of color and compliment the snakeskin rug.
This living room oozes style thanks to a mod-looking sofa, barrel chair and yellow coffee table. A Restoration Hardware South American cowhide tile rug defines the seating area, while three pieces of framed artwork adorn the wall.
Much like the Museum of Modern Art, this New York living room feels effortlessly curated, with a Greco-Roman bust and pop art-inspired wallpaper driving the design. A midcentury modern armchair invites the homeowner to sit and reflect in his private gallery.
Incorporating bold abstract art and large-scale geometric patterns helped achieve a unique and retro look in this living room. Yellow throw pillows add bright color, while a thick-striped rug adds bold pattern. Unique tables complete the funky, fresh decor.
To create a unique master bedroom in this St. Barts beach house, designers added lots of texture to this space. Soft fabrics on the bed linens make the space comfortable, while the textures of the rug, the artwork and the wallpaper evoke the beachy feel of the home's surroundings. Natural light, which streams in through windows and can be manipulated by the soft, linen curtains, highlights the texture in the space.
