The classic 1920s style bungalow still has many iconic architectural features even if some, like the fireplace, are no longer operational. The single shelf above is perfect for displaying a few of Nikia’s favorite works of art including an affirmation in simple words and a painting that bears a striking resemblance to a member of the family. Nearby, a banana leaf palm throws in a spot of natural color and a subtle homage to classic L.A. style.
Inspired by the expansion of SFMOMA, designer Antonio Martins sought to create an especially modern living space honoring the energy and creativity of the city at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Antonio sought to highlight works by artists Anthony Discenza, Andy Diaz Hope and Deborah Oropallo.
“Richard has an affinity for water,” homeowner Lynielle Long says. “And we both like being outside.” As a result, much of the artwork they gravitate toward has environmental themes, such as the giclée of a tranquil stream above the console. Lynielle replaced two small table lamps that obscured the artwork with one large floor lamp, which anchors the space.
The homeowner loves art and has an extensive art collection, some of which inspired the designer's choice of color in this space. To complete the color story, designer Caroline Kopp personally painted two Mark Rothko-inspired paintings to hang on the display shelves, creating a graphic backdrop to the colorful space.
In the design of this home's yard, designers installed a statue inspired by Native American artwork, helping to connect the home to the culture of the land. Highlighting the statue are a few indigenous, flowering plants, adding color to the space, but not requiring much water, keeping the yard sustainable and eco friendly.
This cool blue living room combines comfort and glamour. Casual nature-inspired wall art tones down the formality of the Chesterfield sofa, and the rolling gray upholstered coffee table doubles as a footrest when nights call for cozy relaxation.
Modern Living Room Featuring Ice Blue Sectional Sofa and Ocean-inspired Modern Art
This lovely living room is accented with soothing tones of blue, including an icy sofa, accent pillows and a painting reminiscent of the sea. Modern accents, such as the angular coffee table and open staircase, balance the room's informal tendencies.
This Art Deco-inspired conservatory is designer Scott Thomas' interpretation of a man cave. He gave it a clean, masculine look by using books, brick and adding a little bit of shine. Special transition windows allow the space to go from morning to night without the use of curtains or shades.
Inspired by his client's custom pop art collection, designer Joe Human packed this modern apartment with bold prints and patterns. In the living room, polka dot wallpaper enlivens the space without competing with the vibrant artwork.
