Interior designer Jonathan Savage designed this room as a tribute to legendary designer Albert Hadley, but it can inspire a similar look on a budget. Savage used what he calls "stop sign red" on the edges and legs of the lacquered, vintage coffee table, which was designed by Hadley, to continue the color palette throughout the room. Consider coffee tables in a hue that will inspire the look of items such as lamps and pillows.
White lamps in front of the large scale painting above the vintage media cabinet balance out the lighter artwork on the opposing wall. The side tables and coffee table are round and allow for flow of movement against the strong right angles of the gray and red contemporary sofas and the media cabinet. Patterned throw pillows mesh the two sofa colors together and blend the red accent tone with the cool tones of the room.
The midcentury modern sofas are the anchor pieces in this living room. By adding vintage side and coffee tables, a Serge Mouille-style floor lamp, a gray-and-white ombre rug, and pops of bright red along with the newly painted gray walls, the space becomes an eclectic, sophisticated room suitable for entertaining and relaxing.
The homeowners needed an office, so Chip and Joanna, from HGTV's hit show, Fixer Upper, put up a wall from next to the kitchen area to create a room perfect for the job. A rustic desk and ceiling fan make the space vintage and neat, while an industrial table lamp and chair make the space masculine. The magenta rug gives the small space a pop of color, while the custom wall art and hanging plants add decorative flair.
The vintage headboard in this guest bedroom was spray-painted in matte gray to give it a graphic look against the bright white walls. Simple white bedding highlights the red and white striped throw, while chunky timber bedside tables provide a large surface for a guest to keep books, phones and knick-knacks. The tall white lamps were chosen to balance the tall windows and trimmed with red velvet ribbon for a custom look.
This stunning vintage white sofa is the one thing I might have tried to run out the door with. The woven upholstery fabric immediately adds an air of sophistication to a wall color that might otherwise come across as juvenile. The sleek curve of the arm that transitions into a fully upholstered leg, housing a floating bench cushion is a work of art with a clear mid-century reference. The only way to address a piece this special is to accent it with sleek black floor lamps, a classic black and white marble coffee table, and graphic drapery fabric by the talented Kelly Wearstler. I really enjoy seeing a successful relationship between the primary colors in the artwork and the tertiary wall color. Angela definitely took risks, but her artistic eye served her well.
