Doorway Draws Playful Contrast to Elegant Dining Room
The dining room was awkward and small, so designers covered the walls with a fun, gold malachite wallpaper and addd a linear chandelier to distract from the odd lines on the space and draw the eye to the center of the space. To bring in a bigger sense of richness, designers brought in bold purples to accent the gold wallpaper. At the entrance to the space, a surfboard and photography add a playful contrast to the formal, elegant dining space.
HGTV fan lizardshop got creative to give her son the beach-themed room he craved. Using an old-fashioned projector, she traced the surfer and wave design onto the wall then filled it in with latex paint. Custom-made to coordinate with the bedding, mini surfboards are the perfect accent.
Two nooks flanking the fireplace house coastal accessories, like driftwood and a surfboard, evoking the Miami Beach atmosphere. Long, contemporary sofas topped with teal and white pillows make for a cozy conversation area.
