We could all take lessons from Atlanta designer Whitney Ray's impressive foyer console. The ideal blend of art and design, Ray cleverly uses both the top and the underside of this console to display framed art and decorative elements. The mix of representational and abstract art suggests a mini-museum exhibition amidst the obvious functionality of providing a perch for foyer lighting.
In this wide passageway, niches with colored lights stand out against the tan walls, making a lively gallery display. In the center of the space, a long bench sits museum-style, inviting passerby to reflect on the art.
White Asian Hallway With Glass-Encased Horse Statue
This hallway is kept simple and bright by keeping the white walls empty. Light blue doors add soft color, and a small brown leather chair provides a quiet spot to sit with a view of the beautiful horse statue. A recessed light overhead shines a spotlight on the art display.
The home's entry doubles as a floor-to-ceiling art gallery packed with one-of-kind creations appealing to adults and kids. To keep purses and backpacks in one spot, wall hooks were installed among the featured art. A foyer table in matching blue provides an excellent surface for displaying family photos, intimate lighting, and accessories.
Off the bedroom is a small nook perfect for a home office. Natural light streams in from the floor-to-ceiling windows, where a custom-designed desk features plenty of workspace. Floating shelves give the homeowner a spot to display favorite art pieces.
White, Contemporary Bedroom with Fireplace, Terrace
An oversized rug grounds the sleeping area in this white, contemporary bedroom. A fireplace literally warms up the space and provides a perfect spot for displaying modern art. A broad doorway ushers in light while also giving access to an outdoor terrace.
Library Inspired Eclectic Sitting Room With Bookshelf Wallpaper Accent Wall, Navy Striped Armchairs and an Animal Hide Rug
A peaked accent all displays bookshelf wallpaper for a library-like feel to this bright sitting room. Natural light combines with the gold, art deco lamp and cylindrical light fixture for plenty of light to show off the design. A pair of striped navy armchairs are decorated with magenta and lavender floral throw pillows. A patterned ottoman and animal hide rug finish off the stylish set up.
Blue Transitional Dining Room With Eye-Catching Chandelier
Eight off-white tufted chairs surround a dark wood table in this chic transitional dining room. A dark blue accent wall attracts the eye to the built-in shelving that displays picture frames and art. Above the table, a fun rectangular chandelier adds light to the space.
This small, contemporary wine bar packs a punch with striking details. Black and white, wall-mounted wine holders create an artful display in this stylish urban space. Exposed light bulbs hang from an eye-catching ceiling fixture and a state-of-the-art wine cooler adds additional storage.
Bright and whimsical accessories pop in this light-filled corner of a modern living room. Colorful art is matted for maximum impact, and surrounding books and accessories pull from its bright palette of primary and secondary hues. A leafy display in a clear glass vase adds life to the arrangement.
