Contemporary Living Room With Gray Chairs

This stylish apartment is the home of an art collector...and it shows. Dark floors and crisp white walls make a gallery-like backdrop for curated art and sculptural furnishings.

Contemporary Apartment Living Room With Blue Sofa

Inspired by the homeowner's extensive art collection, designers used vivid cobalt hues throughout the apartment including the living room's serpentine sofa adorned with velvet upholstery.

Contemporary Living Room With Hanging Art

In this sleek apartment, the designers went for a slightly moody look with white walls and layered textures that help showcase the homeowners' extensive art collection.

Neutral Contemporary Living Room With Gold Tables

In this living room, instead of color, unusual shapes and textures create visual interest. The built-in shelving has beautiful wood detailing on the lower cabinet doors. A trio of golden stools make flexible seating on their own and together become a useful coffee table.

Living Room Console Table and Stools

The design of this console table is as smart as it is stylish with many levels of shelving and enough space to tuck in two fringed stools. On top, gold-and-white lamps pick up the shimmery jewel tones of the art on the wall nearby.

Gray Modern Foyer With Blue Mirror

In this apartment entry way, a dramatic stage is instantly set with a bold Le Corbusier-lacquered dot wallcovering and a multi-faceted cobalt blue mirror.

Black Open Kitchen With Yellow Lilies

The dark base in this kitchen—black cabinets and appliances, gray backsplash—allows for bright pops of color and shimmery metallics. It's a sophisticated way to create a neutral foundation.

Contemporary Dining Room With Modern Art

Dark floors and white walls show off the bold artwork in this dining room. The accessories—a glittery pendant light, even the greenery—are stylish punctuation.

Contemporary Dining Room With Colorful Art

Sculptural qualities like the base of the brass dining table are fascinating partners to the vibrant artwork in this sophisticated apartment.

Eclectic Multicolored Bedroom With Green Nightstand

This incredible bedroom is a wonderful example of how wildly different patterns can look magical together. Start with a big, bold piece—like the black-and-white wallpaper seen here—and layer different hues and textures around it.

Gray and Purple Contemporary Master Bedroom With Art

The moody hues of this master bedroom perfectly offset the sweeping artwork that fills the wall above the bed. A lilac-dyed parchment writing desk is another elegant complement.

Modern Powder Room With Geometric Backsplash

Sculptural pendants and bold geometric tiles make a splash in this powder room.

Blue Green Contemporary Small Bedroom With Art

For a dynamic look in the bedroom, the designers layered two paintings on top of floor-to-ceiling curtains. Slim pendants add a further level of texture and interest.

Eclectic Bedroom With Pink Art

A headboard with a green leafy finish paired with a furry throw and a black-and-white checked floor...this imaginative apartment takes risks with stylish aplomb.
