Contemporary Dining Room and Living Room

The living room flows easily into this dining area, both with the gorgeous backdrop of a Porter Teleo wallpaper accent wall. The simple arrangement and neutral palette of the dining table and chairs allows for the patterns in the living room to shine.

Contemporary Dining Room With Wallpaper

Hand-painted Porter Teleo wallpaper makes a stunning accent wall in this dining room, its splashy pattern perfectly matched with an understated tulip table and wood chairs.

Contemporary Living Room With Navy Wall

A dark navy accent wall provides a dramatic backdrop for the sophisticated style in this contemporary living room. The wall across from the sofa is covered with hand-painted Porter Teleo wallpaper. Throughout the space, layers of texture—a tile fireplace, glass and metal coffee table, Chinoiserie TV cabinet—bring depth and dimension. The rug is from Beni Ourain.

Contemporary Living Room With Yellow Chair

The walls in this contemporary living room are a mix of crisp white and dark navy, a handsome backdrop for the vibrant colors and playful patterns scattered throughout the space.

Contemporary Living Room With Yellow Armchair

Originally, this living room fireplace was oddly clad in what appeared to be leftover Caesarstone countertop material—which made the far corner of the space feel dark and heavy. The designer refaced the fireplace with small white tiles, brightening the look of the entire room!

Yellow Armchair and Blue Pillow

Bright hues infuse this living room with life and cheery personality. The yellow armchair has a handsome partner in a blue-patterned pillow.
