Before, the dining nook in this cottage was dim and dingy, with dated finishes that failed to take advantage of the room's natural light. Now, a built-in window seat serves as a banquette for a charming breakfast space. The all-white backdrop reflects light and makes colorful pillows and accessories pop.
Double-height windows flank the left side of this modern living room, bringing in lots of natural light. Keeping the walls white and accenting with vivid colors and softer shapes maintains the brightness and softens the strong architectural lines in the space.
The sitting area clearly demonstrates the color story for the porch: white and neutral base pieces with bright accents. The sectional sofa, wood coffee table and baroque wall mirror bring unexpected indoor sophistication to outdoor living. The pink, red and purple throw pillows pop against the stark white sofa. A geometric light fixture hangs above to provide lighting.
Two panels covered in colorful floral fabric create the headboard for this bed. Each panel has a mounted light overhead attached to the frame. Layered pillows continue adding color and pattern. Two green pillows match the green bedspread, followed by two red accent pillows, one with a lobster, and a black and white patterned pillow finishes the bed.
Alternating black and white cushions give this plush sectional a checked look. Speaker throw pillows add a hip and personal touch of decoration to the sitting space. A mosaic tile statue adds more unique flair to the inviting room.
The living room design is light, airy and contemporary. To achieve a similarly airy feel, try working with a restrained color palette and bring in pops of color with accessories. Mixing patterns with textiles and art adds another layer of interest to the design.
The long white sectional is filled with white throw pillows for a padded finish to the sitting space. A white cabana cover shades the lounge area while keeping with the sunny and bright feel. A low Asian coffee table features sharp lines and a calm, neutral color. Wood cabinets built into the stone retaining wall provide easily accessible storage.
A hint of the red wall peeks over this close-up view of neutral bedding with floral, striped and plaid patterns. A white throw pillow with an applique of red and salmon floral beading accents the bedding while blending perfectly with the wall color.
Coastal-style furniture and colorfully vibrant textiles – turquoise seat cushions and bright orange patterned throw pillows – lay the foundation for this white living room. Metallic accents paired with a sleek acrylic end table keep the look fresh and lively.
Jewel-toned throw pillows add a burst of color to this gray and white living room. A plum storage ottoman doubles as a side table, while a sleek coffee table keeps a low profile in front of the boxy gray sofa. A cityscape art piece hints at the home's urban setting.
Designer SuzAnn Kletzien included elements of blue –– her client's favorite color –– throughout her design plan, as seen in these throw pillows. A navy velvet pillow and blue and white upholstered pillow trimmed in the same navy fabric pair beautifully with the taupe velvet sofa.
