Contemporary Living Room With Neutral Velvet Chairs and Large Entertainment Center
A large entertainment center frames the flatscreen TV with shallow shelving, perfect for showing off personal style. A set of neutral chairs features a sleek black trim and single throw pillows with a sheen fabric finish. The area rug and lampshade sconces add a touch of traditional style to the contemporary-influenced design.
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
The master bathroom is big on personality, if not on space. The concrete tile floor is meant to evoke the look of a folk art quilt. The vanity and mirror are pretty as a picture in robin's egg blue. And shiplap walls match the paneling used throughout the house.
If you have solid but unremarkable builder-grade cabinets, the simplest route to a high-end look is adding some height with crown molding. Interior designer Sarah Macklem of The Yellow Cape Cod tackled this project in her own kitchen with striking results.
