Where exposed brick and ceiling beams make this living room feel a little rustic, two leather chairs add a touch of refinement. In turn, this space is nicely balanced -- and great for lounging as well.
The wallpaper in the formal living room has been carefully preserved, which helps maintain the integrity of the house. A closer look at the design reveals beautiful blue-green peacocks, which the designers complemented with two floral sofas.
Instead of a side table that stands on four legs, this one hangs from the ceiling. Inside is a niche for books and magazines. Designers used a rich blue wainscoting as a springboard for more layers of color and pattern.
Thanks to its central location, the dining room is easily serviced by the Butler's Pantry and the Wine Station, the latter of which is equipped with two Thermador wine chillers. Blue plates on the table speak to the home's contemporary color scheme.
This friendly dining room feels sunny and bright with natural light streaming in a set of French doors. The design is warm and a just right amount of elegant with wainscoting, a pretty patterned wallpaper and a chandelier.
Chocolate brown leather couches ground this bright white living room. A wall of sliding glass doors offers unobstructed views of the ocean. Breezy white curtains keep with the light, airy feel of this space.
Drama and warmth combine in this impressive Old World residence encompassing a total of 14,496 square feet. The double-height great room features a coquina coral fireplace flanked by double sets of French doors that open to the waterfront loggia and pool patio.
Museums and galleries may display art against stark, white walls, but black can showcase favorite pieces even better. Case in point, this contemporary space designed by architect Bryant Alsop. “Walls and cabinetry in Dulux paints’ Domino color creates visual depth and provides a moody backdrop for the client’s artwork and furniture,” he says. “Extending almost the entire length of the house, the color provides a unifying element connecting each of the individual spaces.”
A unique and antique-inspired chandelier hangs above a beautiful, custom-made wood dining table, creating a funky elegance. The tone-on-tone room (and room beyond) is enhanced by the presence of bright grasses and plants — substitute flowers of differing colors or fruit for a seasonal transformation.
A unique glass panel chandelier hangs over the oval shaped thick wood dining table. Wood dining chairs with velvet seat and back cushions surround the table and match the elegant design of the room. Glass door cabinets provide attractive displays in the surrounding walls.
In this bright, natural light-filled home, color comes from the accessories: artwork, books, even plants and bowls of fruit! The bonus of this setup is that it can easily be switched up as moods and seasons change.
This contemporary living room makes a statement with indigo walls and a floral patterned sofa. The wide plank hardwood floor and sleek coffee table let the dramatic prints and rich colors take center stage.
