Equestrian motifs such as the horse wall-art in this room are a common (and delightful) element in southwestern decor. The designer played up the pony vibes with a hide rug (no horseys were hurt) and faux fur stool, which reflect the playful dignity of our four-hoofed friends.
It can be hard to make an open living-dining space feel formal. Often the layouts are so open and airy they lend themselves to a more casual vibe, which is fine, but what if casual isn't your thing? This dining area manages to feel formal thanks to two things: #1 dining takes place by the fireplace, which adds grandeur to each meal, and #2 a statement-making table draws you in and makes each meal feel like an event to remember.
This basement living room needed some additional seating and a place for eating. The designer was clever and placed two console tables side by side with some stools behind the sectional in view of the tv and voila dinner and a show.
If you love the look of a sconce, but don’t want to go through the hassle of hard-wiring lighting (not to mention the price tag of hiring an electrician!) opt for a plug-in sconce instead. Sconces are both versatile and trendy—but hard-wiring is expensive. So, a plug-in sconce gives you that stylish, custom look without requiring extra expenses.
This dining space is welcoming and striking thanks to the mix of neutral woven materials and bold black and white patterns. Additionally, the pops of black in this design play up the architecture of the wrought iron windows and call attention to the scenic view.
Many people think that if they have an heirloom piece of furniture in their home, they need to work with items from the same era or style. However, sometimes doing the opposite can create dynamic and even lovely effects. Take, for example, the pairing of this antique dining table in this modern space, which is so eye-catching and fun.
Industrial style and Amercana are truly a match made in style heaven as you can see from this bold living room design. It's no wonder that the two pair so well seeing as how so much of what we perceive as being uniquely American came out of industrial manufacturing which influences the style movement.
When having a neutral color scheme, it’s important to add various materials and textures to add a sense of dimensionality to your home office. The natural wooden top of the desk adds an organic texture that complements the soft leather of the ottoman. Black metal accents emphasize the industrial nature of the space.
With an open living and dining space, an eclectic approach to furnishings is a great way to create an overarching sense of comfort. Use a sectional to divide up the room while adding comfort, pull in an expandable dining table to add some versatility, and work in rounded pieces like a big armchair, pouf, and curvy coffee table. Then balance it out with eye-catching accents, such as an industrial pendant, abstract art, and a geometric rug. The stylish mix of functional pieces with designs that add color and shape is sure to warm up even the most spacious of rooms.
When working from home, why not create a space for your little ones? A small play area can make a big difference. Your design aware little one can color in furniture greatness with an Eames mid-century modern table and chair set!
