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.
A print by Rodrigo Valenzuela hangs over a glittery Art Deco console table in the living room. The niche above the fireplace gets a charming circular vase. Both pieces prove the designer's point that, when it comes to decorating a space, less is very often more.
Geometric multicolor patterns and bold hues complete this contemporary kid-friendly family room by Kandrac & Kole Interior Design. A wood storage cabinet holds a media system on one side of the fireplace, while the other side serves as a reading corner with furry white stools. The room also has a sectional and white desks. Above the cabinet is a mirror made out of recycled paint cans.
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.
