Upstairs in the mezzanine loft, the wife’s office & creative space features an industrial storage cart, lucite-sided stools, an intense metal sideboard, and a modern desk. A small chandelier brightens the space and offers a touch of glamour.
In creating this home office for her husband, the designer covered one accent wall in wallpaper with a repeating map pattern. An animal skin rug continues the adventurous theme. The desk and light fixtures are simple wood and brass to balance out the other elements.
Two large sectional sofas and two intimate club chairs offer a mix of comfy and stylish seating in this contemporary home theater. Wall hangings absorb sound and also display imagery that connect's the home's waterfront locale. The palette of earthy neutrals is punctuated by the bright teal of the chairs.
Transitional Living Room With Turquoise and Chartreuse Accents
Designer Mary DeWalt created this showstopper using a neutral background with bright pops of blue and green. Matching cream sofas and wood accent chairs with upholstered cushions create a comfortable conversation area with a striking view. The room is appointed in dark woods that add drama and dimension.

Tired of her plain white bookshelves, lifestyle blogger Janine Waite used foam core, an Exacto knife, playful polka dot wrapping paper and a ruler and tape to give them an easy makeover. The bookshelves now offer stylish storage and give her home office a welcome punch of color.
Open Plan Living Space With Polished Concrete Floors
The open layout of this home allows for an easy flow between living, kitchen and areas, creating a relaxed vibe. A gray tufted sofa and metal coffee table decorate the living room, while the eat-in kitchen features sleek taupe cabinets and a black dining set.
The modern design features classic lines, soft seating and inviting artwork, avoiding anything too stark or uncomfortable. A color palette of crème, with touches of blue, terra cotta, silvers and grays, add to the home’s friendly atmosphere, creating a strong but comfortable look.
Modern Dining Room Creates Statement Piece in Home's Main Space
The dining room in this open concept home stands as a statement piece in the main space. The dining set-a white, modern table and contrasting black chairs-and pendant lights draw the eye out the wall of windows to the beautiful view below the apartment.
A corner banquette just off the kitchen is a convenient place for breakfast and light meals. Here, an L-shaped banquette features nail head trim and a collection of earthenware jugs, animal figurines and plates. The distressed table and checked pillows are classically French country.
Venetian plastered walls, cypress beams and custom-made wrought iron lighting set an elegant tone upon entering this traditional living room. Designer Troy Beasley mixes contemporary chairs, tables and accessories with charming Moorish art and rich, Tuscan hues. Tuscan style is known for its natural, earth-toned colors, like golden yellow, terra cotta and green for an airy effect in warm-weather places, and this ivory and gold color scheme provides just that.
