Blue Midcentury Modern Master Bedroom
A pastel palette is the foundation for this master bedroom's serene mood. To give its owners a place to unwind, designers added a sitting area. Cloud-soft sheepskin rugs are heaven underfoot by the bed.
Graphic Teal Wallpaper Pairs With Midcentury Modern Lamp
The tall, striking shade of a midcentury modern lamp echoes the metallic, reflective feel of cool and attractive teal bedroom wallpaper. A whimsical dog statue carries the teal into the accents in the room, and a vase of fresh roses completes the ensemble.
Prior to the makeover, this master bedroom was in contractor-grade condition, from its neutral carpet to the beige paint on its walls. Taking inspiration from its colorful abstract art, the room received a new identity with shades of blue accented with fire-engine red. The paper lantern light fixtures add lightness to this otherwise masculine bedroom.
The design of this dining room aims to bring together an exciting mix of patterns and textures, all in a palette of blue. The custom chairs have a matte leather outside and a shiny linen patina inside. Artwork is made up of glass ovals clustered together.
Stunning and attractive teal and gold patterned wallpaper acts as the focal point for this creative, comfy bedroom. Drawing on midcentury modern influences, a bold headboard with simmering, peacock-like upholstery works in tandem with the long shades and retro shapes of glass lamps and nightstands. The teal motif is carried throughout the room in plush pillows, a cozy throw and vintage accents.
Hollywood regency meets country club chic in this spacious living room. A glamorous five-tiered chandelier is the centerpiece of the room, while a palette of Robin's egg blue, teal and metallics play beneath.
This wonderful baby boy's nursery used the theme of transportation to inspire its whimsical decor. Accessories and toys fill the space with planes, trains and automobiles. Bold, graphic prints and stripes in blue, black, gray and yellow add vibrancy and color.
While small furniture leaves more room for walking around in a small space, miniscule couches and chairs are rarely comfortable. So rather than place two pokey little loveseats in this 7x12-foot sitting room, designer Amie Weitzman built large seating banquettes into the blue-tweed-upholstered walls."This room is part of a guest suite," explains Weitzman, "So comfort was really the top priority." The sofas are deep enough to sink into and large enough to flop onto, "and building them right into the wall," Weitzman says, "buys you a few extra inches of floor space."
Even if you are using freestanding pieces in a small room, you can go with substantial furniture. "The one thing to make sure of," says Weiztman, "is that if you need to, you can walk around the furniture comfortably."
