Here in the family room you can see the soft gray-blue palette shared by the majority of the home’s main level. I’m immediately struck with how the simple walls and painted brick allow the artwork to pop off the walls. We didn’t use a lot of pattern in this room. However we created our own with these solid silks, creating a cool color-blocked look for the panels. Just as much work went into choosing the comfortable furniture. I just want to take a seat on that rug!

Briana and Buzz decided to keep the majority of their living room's walls white to help bounce light around the room and create an open, airy aesthetic.

They employed this designer's trick to redirect attention away from a room's lack of space and onto an intended focal point.
