Multicolored Contemporary Living Room With Blue Sofa
In its former life, the English Tudor house felt heavy and dark with dark wood beams and paneling. To lighten and brighten the look, designers painted everything white; the move also allowed sunlight to bounce around the rooms.
The star attraction of this spacious family room is the window treatments: The pattern is an intense floral with bearded dragons and Chinese lanterns. To balance out its boldness, the designers kept the room's other prints subtle: a medium-scale geometric on the rug, a small scale geometric on the sectional pillows and a casual, tie-dye stripe on the chair pillows.
Designer Tiffany Brooks found a very old cathedral light fixture that she had replicated locally in Dallas. The show-stopping fixture now hangs over the great room seating area to offer stylish illumination and serve as a conversation starter.
A dark navy accent wall provides a dramatic backdrop for the sophisticated style in this contemporary living room. The wall across from the sofa is covered with hand-painted Porter Teleo wallpaper. Throughout the space, layers of texture—a tile fireplace, glass and metal coffee table, Chinoiserie TV cabinet—bring depth and dimension. The rug is from Beni Ourain.
Though the living room is an undoubted showstopper, the dining room might be the purest example of a design style that Tamara describes as, “Edgy modern with a rustic undertone and pops of fun color.” This room has all of that and more from the funky paint job on the walls to the metallic tabletop adorned with bowls of grass. And if that isn’t '80s punk rock enough for you, there’s the snake plant propped atop the bottom half of a mannequin to complete this awesome, unique picture.
Though the first floor of this home isn’t an open plan, the living room and dining room are close enough to each other to require a few connections in their design plan. The stripes on the rug, the polka dots on the table runner and even the triangle patterns on the wall in the dining room all have correlatives in the living room. And where there is the biggest difference - the complete lack of art in the dining room - all of the colors on the wall have been taken from the living room gallery wall, creating some beautiful visual connections.
