White, Contemporary Media Room with Colorful Furnishings
Colorful modern furnishings pop against the all-white palette in this upstairs living space. White draperies draw for privacy and to the shield the space from natural light for TV watching. A traditional rug grounds the space and gives dimension to the sitting area, while also giving the room a collected, eclectic vibe.
Boho means eclectic, and eclectic often means affordable, as a collection of multi-sourced, funky objects that can be picked up for a song at garage sales and thrift stores. Henderson says that 70-80 percent of the decor in this Boho-meets-Scandi Atlanta living/dining room was picked up at vintage stores.
Rattan chairs with gathered string warm up this sitting area, bringing in natural texture and earthy tones. The neutral colors create a relaxing spot to unwind and watch the sun set through the large windows.
Comfortable furniture, from the cozy sectional and Barcelona chair to the floor poufs and stools, combine to create a hangout spot for family, kids and friends. Three massive pendant lights from Noir pull the space together, while drawing the eye upward toward the gorgeous woodwork.
Brian made it feel part of the living space by extending the wallpaper into the nook, then arranging a low-slung banquette and small ottomans around a generous table. He kept the corner from feeling too cluttered by opting for a transparent table base to keep the footprint light. It’s the perfect spot for extra dinner guests, catching up on emails or game nights with friends from the neighborhood.
A cozy white sectional pairs with a sleek gray coffee table and neutral floor poufs to create a comfortable space for friends and family to relax. A textured gray rug grounds the space, while exposed wood beams bring in a rustic vibe overhead.
Clean white walls contrast against the exposed natural beams throughout this open floor plan kitchen and living space. Low, comfortable furniture is ideal for gathering and relaxing, while the easy flow throughout the home creates a perfect space for entertaining.
Whether you are renting or owning, in a city or town for one year or in a forever home, there is no reason you can't personalize and customize your space. Emily Henderson advises you "go into your attic or box of mementoes" for artwork and sculptural elements in your home in place of expensive, original artworks. "If it's two-dimension and means something to you, it can become a piece of art." The living room coffee table is a repurposed circus elephant stand painted with black spray paint, as is the etagere in the far corner. Circular forms that bring in a hip, Eighties vibe repeat in the couch and mantel mirror and peacock blue and natural wood side tables in the room to bring cohesion and purpose.
