Modern White Living Space with Floral Wallpaper and Dining Table
Dominating floral wallpaper is a focal point in a modern upstairs living space with white walls, cable railing, a dining table and beaded chandelier. The room is designed by Scouted Home, an interior styling boutique in Los Angeles and Nashville.
With sloping ceilings that reach 10 feet at their peak, this neutral master bedroom feels open and spacious. Walls painted Snowbound by Sherwin Williams reflect light and add to the room’s airy design.
A soft neutral color palette is highlighted by warm textures, including the flokati area rug, gray velvet sofa and linen curtains. Brass accents bring metallic gleam to the space, which also features classic artwork.
Choose a clean and classic blue and white palette. Men and women seem equally drawn to this color scheme, so it's perfect for shared spaces. A rich blue paint on the walls is the perfect foil for beige and white bedding.
Some people telecommute, others finish work projects or emails after hours at home, while still others simply enjoy having a dedicated home office for paying bills and taking care of other personal business. An extra bedroom is a perfect option for a home office because the door can be closed for solitude and focus or to hide clutter.
Choose a navy and white master bedroom - Navy and white is one of the most elegant colour combinations, and a timeless one at that. Navy is dark enough to provide contrast but the blue adds a touch of warmth. If you start with blue walls, you can afford to bring in a lot of white in the ways of curtains, cushions, upholstery or bed coverings.
This custom built-in settee resides in a space typically slated for bookcases. Since we had enough storage and this is an entertaining family: why not more seating? I also imagined this corner being the perfect spot to curl up with a good book, with a cozy fire going and a fave snack. I specified this piece be upholstered in white to blend in with the walls and also not compete with the sofa.
With the concept of “weightlessness” and “optical illusion” in mind, this living room hits all the right notes. The furniture gives the illusion of floating atop the blue rug, which mimics water. The soaring picture windows, reminiscent of an aquatic viewing tank, invite on-lookers to take in the beauty of this other-worldly environment.
The most effective way to use any outdoor area maximally is with perimeter seating. Here, a modular sectional sofa is configured to conform to a corner of this welcoming courtyard, putting every square inch of the area to use. For optional flexibility, consider sectional sofas without arms since the armless modules can also be added to elongate a straight-lined sofa.
White Painted Brick Retains Texture, Adds Brightness
Indoor brick walls add industrial, historic and rustic charm; however, the brownish red tone of the brick drastically limits the possible color palettes a homeowner can use. To keep the brick pattern and the rich texture, paint the brick bright white in a flat finish. The white brick will make a room seem much brighter and also allow virtually any color scheme to work well.
