Interior designer Ami Austin chose a limited color palette that was warm, inviting and worked well with the wood-plank interior, because this helped contribute to the illusion of a larger, warmer space. The grey and rust-colored furnishings and rug were hand-picked to blend well with the livable luxury of this loft.
A long black dining table is lined with unique wood chairs over a faded floor rug. Open space surrounding the table creates an open feel for the room. Gray built-in cabinetry lines the walls for concealed storage below window benches. Colorful throw pillows, Aa plant centerpiece and a large view of the outdoors decorates the room.
If you find beige and tan too neutral or impersonal for your own home, muted grays may be a much better fit. For versatility, choose grays with hints of blue or white that will pair well with orange or green like the orange chairs used in this room. The circular table grounds the airy design, and the chairs compliment stripes in the floor rug.
In the master bathroom, touches of wood everywhere create a warm, rustic feel enhanced by the Oriental rug on the floor and the soft brown countertop and tiles in the shower. The large mirror visually helps to open up the room and raise the ceiling.
The upper part of this stylish bedroom is kept clean and simple with white walls and curtains; zippy personality comes from the rug and pillows in bold colors and patterns. Golden accents tie in to the warmth of the wood floor.
A contemporary office is designed to support creative workflow with a stone and wood desk and cabinets. A zebra skin covers part of the cement floor and provides a sense of warmth in an otherwise cold masculine space.
Dark woods like mahogany and cherry can feel heavy when set against carpeting, rugs, curtains and too much color and texture. But designer Abbi Williams uses white walls and ceilings and an ebony floor color to bring balance to this room. Dark mixed with light strikes a harmonious note here.
