Pair off-white with golden hues to create a luxurious living room design. Interior designer Matthew Patrick Smyth is a fan of the beauty of an off-white color palette in the living room. “Off-whites seem to be at the core of my most of my color selections for living rooms. They take on different shades as the light moves across the room and serve as perfect background colors,” he says. Smyth’s favorite shades of white include Benjamin Moore’s Timid White and Linen White.

On this wall, designers used some of the homeowner's keepsakes (including vintage candleholders) as the starting point for a pretty display. The salvaged shelf on the radiator was sanded, clear coated, then embellished with gold foil. The little glass bottles on top were dipped in white paint, the embellished with gold foil as well.

To create a space that is both nursery and guest bedroom, a twin bed was brought in to accommodate the baby's mother or other guests at night. The gray and white striped bedspread complements the neutral color palette of this travel themed nursery, while the gold and silver mobile and wall decal match the gold chevron throw pillow that adorns the guest bed.
Black and gold combine to create a sleek profile in this streamlined, modern kitchen. A mix of dark and light cabinetry is unified by dark countertops and an eye-catching backsplash that brings the mix of hues together. Three clean-lined pendants light the island, while a trio of modern upholstered barstools provide seating that allows guests to interact with the cook. An integrated refrigerator features modern brass pulls that match the rest of the hardware and fixtures.
