This cool living room is a study in chic contrasts. There's a wide range of textures, from the brick fireplace to the shaggy Moroccan rug to the nubby armchair and knotted ottoman. Presiding over the hearth, a buffalo looks dashing surrounded by black and white stripes.
Interior designer Ana Claudia Schultz (https://anaclaudiadesign.com/) has an eye for good design. Born in Brazil and raised in Miami, this designer made the move from her Brooklyn apartment to her first home in the idyllic town of Hyde Park, New York. About two hours north of New York City, the space she lovingly refers to as her “forever home,” offers a sparkling view of the Hudson River and, from another vantage, a fairytale forest. The home is striking from the moment you arrive, painted in a brick red hue. And upon entering you are met with layers of unique elements that work together effortlessly, guided by Ana Claudia’s confident design eye.
The open plan living room is grounded by a refined color palette of navy blue, black and pops of red. Over the sofa, a painting of a lion mane’s mushroom adds a modern, rustic touch to the living area. The mushroom silhouette continues with two bright Verner Panton Flowerpot Lamps. The table lamps bring a 1960s vibe into this modern living room.
This lively living space features an open floor plan, bringing together the living, dining and bar areas. Multicolored floral pillows line the bright yellow L-shaped sofa, while a large sliding glass window makes it easy to transition between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Here, in the living room, white space is just as important as the art pieces, helping to create a sense of peace as well as spotlighting special moments, like the niche above the fireplace.
