Living Room With Striped Rug and Colorful Throw Pillows
Keep in mind that your furnishings should be in proportion not only to the actual size of the space but also to the perceived size — which can be affected by such elements as paint color or extensive areas of glass. In this project, the latter came into play. “The floor-to-ceiling windows make this small space feel larger, and to keep that open feeling the furniture needed to be scaled appropriately,” says architect Leslie Arnold. “Choosing furniture that was open at the bottom — i.e. pieces that do not go all the way to the floor — ’enlarges’ the room by allowing the entire floor to be visually unbroken. The simple, solid colored upholstered furniture allows the brightly colored rug and wall art to be the main focus of the room.”
Sleek rocking chairs, boxy armchairs and a clean-lined sofa pair with a large fire pit for a cozy yet contemporary feel on this back porch. Large sliding glass doors allow outdoor-indoor functionality.
Modern Widespread Faucet Complements Modern Bathroom
The close-up, side view of this Pure Design Interiors bathroom countertop shows the modern, minimalist style of the space. The modern chrome faucet, with its rounded center water spout, harmonizes nicely with the gray and white marble countertop of the vanity, while the small accessory objects to the left of the faucet give the space an earthy, natural touch.
A family of five needed a relaxed yet beautiful living space using items they already owned and wanted to incorporate into the overall design. Designer Sarah Wittenbraker created this stunning living room doing just that; she achieved a stylish, eclectic design by mixing furniture pieces of contrasting styles.
This Austin, Texas, kitchen features warm colors and dark cabinetry that call back to the traditional, rustic feel of an Italian farmhouse. Wood beams criss-cross the ceiling, while broad, modern windows bring in loads of light.
Spacious, Fully Equipped Island in Contemporary Kitchen
Since the perimeter cabinets in this contemporary kitchen stretch from the floor to the ceiling, the island — which is is fully equipped with a sink, cooktop and vent hood — serves as the prep station.
The master bathroom for him feels like a day at the spa. A gray and white marbled sink and walls are luxurious details that contribute to the spa-like feel. The shower features the same marble walls with a bench seat for added relaxation.
For a pair of young homeowners, the designer of this home wanted the dining room to feel playful, stylish and a bit more youthful. Putting a darker color on the ceiling, then painting the walls fresh white cozies up the space while maintaining an open feel. A few bold accents—like the leopard print curtains—add edge.
Crisp Midcentury Modern Kitchen Design With Marble Backsplash and Octagon Pendant Lights
This beautifully crisp kitchen design features a polished light color scheme and sharp lines. A trio of octagon pendant lights hangs over the island marble countertop. The backsplash echoes the marble finish between light, neutral cabinets.
The modern interior design of this luxurious living space features two brass chandeliers that double as art pieces. Light colored walls pair with warm wooden tones that define the open concept space, from the dining table to the plush living room.
Luxurious Master Bathroom With Glass Walk-In Shower and Green Accents
This stunning master bathroom features a marble enclosed tub that offers a view of the enclosed glass double walk-in shower. Green leather benches flank the shower, while tiles with onyx and mother of pearl inlay cover the floor. A Fortuny chandelier hangs above.
