Interior designer Tylor Devereaux used stark, streamlined furniture in classic black and white to allow the view to be the star of this Grand Rapids penthouse.
Classroom Turned Bachelor Pad
Black bamboo floors and a custom concrete entertainment center anchor this living space in what was once a high school classroom. Soft textures and sheer drapery balance out the space for this bachelor.
Tylor paired white Panton chairs with a marble-topped Saarinen table for a dining room that's both modern and timeless.
A rustic wooden table combined with iconic (and nearly invisible) Louis Ghost Chairs creates an interesting mix of textures in this penthouse dining room.
Chaise for Two
Relax on the lover's chaise while taking in the Grand Rapids city view. The concrete floor's reflective epoxy finish gives you a feeling of floating on air.
More than 100 years ago, this space was a large furniture factory in Grand Rapids. Today the classic furniture pieces dressed in soft tones and classic black and white blend to make this living room feel warm and inviting.
Pops of Pattern
"Fun and full of life" is how Tylor describes this homeowner. He took a chance on the floral sofa to give the space a fun, vibrant vibe. The client loved it!
A Modern Place to Entertain
Warm gray paired with grass green is one of Tylor's go-to color combinations. He custom-designed the entertainment console and shelving unit to balance out this home theater room.
A funky lamp, retro artwork and a burnt-orange leather chair give this living room a 1960s vibe.
Midcentury + Modern
Midcentury elements combined with a modern twist and fresh colors make this entertainment room cozy, comfortable and classic.
Dining Room Surprises
Tylor loves to combine unexpected elements, like these funky cafe chairs paired with a heavy wooden dining table and a light color palette.
Design for a Good Cause
One of Tylor's all-time favorite spaces was for the Grand Rapids Symphony Showcase benefit house. He transformed a racquetball court into a fantasy room he called "Caotico." Fire, grass on the floor, pure clean lines, an ode to Madonna and local artists, and a continuously playing film on the ceiling — it's a peek into the mind of Tylor Devereaux.
Thinking way outside of the box was Tylor's goal for this kitchen. He stumbled on the cast-iron cabriole legs in an antique store and used them as a design element for the island. Warm woods and fun colors blend beautifully to give this kitchen design flair.
Attention to detail and neutrals can be so beautiful. This room's muted palette allows the chandelier to take center stage.
Space planning, furniture scale and flow of color are crucial to condo living. Warm grays and off-white neutrals help to give this space a modern feel and functional flow.
Multipurpose Studio Space
Who would think that a quilting studio could be this fun and restful? While Grandma is quilting, her grandchildren can hang out on the chaise and watch cartoons.
Lots to Look At
Tylor's goal in this restaurant space? Use what he would normally NEVER use. Bold color, flea market artwork and antique typewriters give patrons plenty to look at in this intimate dining room.
This whimsical restaurant lobby re-creates "Momma's kitchen," and evokes a fun feeling of nostalgia. Who would mind waiting a little while to be seated?
Warm exposed brick and ductwork and original wood ceilings are softened by a soothing green color palette in this loft space. Orange accents add just enough vibrancy.
