Modern Metallic Living Room
Josh took this Design Star challenge head on when he created this gray and metallic bold living room mockup. A pop of color comes in the two shiny modern red chairs, and plenty of personality comes through in the accents, including shiny Fido.
Enter this apartment through a narrow, short hallway; the pale blue walls and geometric rug make a dynamic first impression. The hall opens up into a chic, neutral living room where gold wallpaper in a mix of cool prints make the space anything but basic.
A starburst light fixture, fluffy white armchair and golden wall treatment put a glamorous spin on the traditional home office. Because their desk faces the window, the owners can enjoy natural light and mountain views while they work.

The formal and extravagant sitting room includes two sitting areas each anchored by a graphic, traditional rug. Ornate furnishings, intricate gold crown molding and custom hardwood flooring add finishing touches to the highly sophisticated design.
"Don't be afraid to mix the metals" says designer Michel Boyd who uses gold and silver together in his space. Metallics, says Boyd, work for him like a pop of color. "That reflective surface is the pop of color," says Boyd.
This multi-functional space perfectly fits the family perfectly. A comfy, gray sectional, upholstered ottoman and playful striped slipper chair create the TV viewing area, while brass étagères flank a coordinating TV console house metallic woven baskets that act as toy storage for the kiddos. Finally, a cream lacquered and brass desk was placed against the back of the chaise sectional where the homeowners can catch up on work while their kids watch a movie or play within eyesight.
Ample leather seating and a plush, oversized rug create a comfortable space to relax in this sleek, contemporary home. A pair of low, polished stone tables are both functional and versatile. Textured silver wallpaper and a black ceiling-mounted fixture add to the elegant feel.
Golden light fixtures hover like ethereal globes in the sky of this elegant sitting room, one of many living areas in the mansion. Dark walls, ceiling and floor majestically set them off as well as the room's gold trim.
A yellow vintage chair with a matching ottoman is provides a strong contrast against a pink and white rug with a graphic pattern in this eclectic room. Decorative brass flowers echo the metallic, floral pattern wallpaper.
