Golden Age Arches
Here again the architecture of the home reflects Hollywood’s golden age. The arches that form the passages between rooms are one of Nikia’s favorite features in the home. This arch between the living and dining room offers a gorgeous view of the various textures and cultural influences that make up the living room — from the pouf to the rug to the Bamileke-inspired stools from World Market (https://www.worldmarket.com/product/tribal-carved-wood-accent-table.do?sortby=ourPicks). “I love a combination of clean mid-century Scandinavian with more intricate pieces from India and Africa,” Nikia confesses. “Mixing and matching design elements from different cultures reflects the world I live in and makes me feel at home.”
Accessible by a sliding glass door in the adjacent bedroom, this covered deck area features a collection of striped outdoor furniture including two armchairs and two sofas centered around a low coffee table.
Deck Sitting Area Features Blue Cushions and Pillows Inspired by the Sea
This New Hampshire beach house's color palette of blue, indigo and white is thoughtfully carried outdoors to the deck seating area, where the inspiration of the palette becomes fully evident in views of the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
And when the owners want to soak up some sun? They can relax on this comfortable outdoor set. The wicker sofa allows for stretching out, while the matching coffee table keeps books and drinks within reach.
The owners of this Arizona property wanted an elegant and modern outdoor space that related architecturally to their house and would be used for entertaining in a gallery-like setting. The two large sculptures were pieces the owners had in storage, and they were incorporated into the award-winning design by landscape architect Steve Martino.
Calming Gray-Green Color Scheme in Country Bedroom With Wood Bed Frame, Patterned Curtains and Smooth Flooring
Gray-greens are used in spa-like settings and tranquil spaces aimed to keep people relaxed. The wood bed frame and wood table lamp shine as elements of warmth against the calming, cool color scheme. The country style of this bedroom gives it the perfect balance of feeling homey and stylish.
Natural light is the key to ensuring the proper color values of each tone; however, when a white-on-white tablescape is lit artificially or with candlelight, each shade will be strongly influenced by bulbs or flames, causing the colors to read more warmly with yellow undertones.
Nautical Nursery With Yellow Beadboard and Navy Crib
This gender neutral nursery branches out with a nautical theme that spans the entire room. Light blue walls and buttercream beadboard create the perfect backdrop for a distressed navy crib and a built-in bookshelf.
