Modern, Swanky Lounge

See how Kenneth gets a contemporary condo ready for its closeup.

  • Modern design, with its clean lines, doesn't have to mean cold and sterile.
  • To even out all the odd angles in the room, Kenneth fashions a bank of white cabinets that float out from the wall.
  • The graphite gray paint provides the perfect backdrop for the shiny "laptop-like" finish on the molding.
  • The distressed metallic tile that spans from the ceiling to the bottom of the fireplace gives the seating area a sleek modern look.
  • Kenneth created additional seating with an armless chartreuse sofa and a low coffee table.
  • The hand-distressed wooden floors ground the design and add the "old-boot" warmth the homeowner wanted.
  • The large windows are framed with dramatic floor-to-ceiling drapes.
  • Having the white-laminate cabinets spread over two walls shifts the focus of the room and makes it feel more parallel to the overhead loft and fireplace.
