Fresh Home Office With Built-In Bookshelf and Coastal-Inspired Decor
This light and bright home office features a neutral built-in bookshelf that blends into the similarly-hued wood plank walls. Various vases and books line the shelf, giving the space a coastal look. A neutral upholstered armchair is positioned at a wood desk, while a white vase of flowers adds a simple finishing touch.
Designers Heather Hilliard and Fleur Keyes' concept for the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 living room was designed to complement the natural beauty seen through the generous windows. The curvy furnishings harmonize with the hills beyond, and a subtle wallpaper is indicative of stratified soil.
Transitional Living Room With Coffered Ceiling & Colorful Accents
A ribbon-stripe rug rests on warm hardwood floors in this transitional beach-side home. The homeowners love color and wished to keep the atmosphere light and playful. Various shades of blues throughout the house play up the ocean views. A “Nora Lio” side table by Worlds Away holds a whimsical sea urchin lamp.
Nautical-Inspired Foyer With Blue Door and Tall Wainscoting
This fresh transitional foyer features light gray walls and a bold blue front door. Tall wainscoting adds a statement, while a neutral striped upholstered armchair provides a traditional touch. Sailboat decor gives the space a nautical vibe.
A sleek buffet with metallic doors not only adds much-needed storage, but also brings in a note of glam. The oval dining table is surrounded by classic chairs with nailhead trim. Window treatments in earthy blues and greens mimics the shades of the abstract art.
A useful nook located between the kitchen and the breakfast room was made more functional and appealing by adding custom seat and back cushions. The area’s captivating wall art creates a beautiful color scheme complemented by the throw pillows.
Stone Fireplace Heightens Great Room's Rustic Charm
Susan Brunstrum designed her client's second home in Park City, Utah employing a "Mountain Modern," theme, which contemporizes the natural look of rustic furnishings for today's lifestyle. For this great room, the designer added contemporary furniture to contrast with the more primitive resonance of the stone fireplace and dark woodwork. The color palette of the room is soft and subdued, which plays nicely against the room's more masculine elements.
Across from the drawing room, a large bookshelf, wooden desk and rolling chair create a comfortable home office. A blue accent wall adds depth and dimension to the space and complements the blue hues in the area rug.
From the wallpaper to the striped rug, this dining room is full of bold shapes and patterns. Because they're all within the same neutral color palette, these prints add interest to the space without overwhelming it.
Cream-Colored Cabinet Offers Storage in Sitting Room
Though small, this cabinet makes a big difference for the sitting area; it keeps DVDs and games neatly tucked away, as well as becomes a stand for table lamps. Thanks to its gold pulls, the feature ties the room together, too.
The painting's subject matter in this Ammie Kim-designed space is perfect for a dining room. The frame picks up the golden tones that are used throughout the room and the art is hung at the perfect height (just slightly above eye level of seated diners).
