Big City Digs: Luxe Apartment in Los Angeles

With its gold finishes and statement light fixtures, this apartment by Lindye Galloway is as glamorous as its Los Angeles surroundings. In fact, much of the interior was inspired by the star-studded city, with the living room's entertainment center and rug echoing the shapes and patterns of the skyline.

Contemporary Open Concept Dining Area and Kitchen

Strong accents give definition to the open concept dining area, kitchen and living room, like the black strips of the barstools' frame and the bright green dining chairs.

Contemporary Dining Room With Green Chairs

An infusion of jungle green, not to mention luxurious velvet plus brass trim, takes these dining chairs into star territory. Their rich color wakes up the entire open concept room.

White Modern Open Plan Kitchen With Brass Lights

Brass elements pull together this sleek open plan kitchen. To highlight the Carrara marble backsplash, designers selected more neutral cabinets in a white, flat-paneled high gloss.

White Modern Kitchen With Cutting Boards

Cutting boards, bowls, wooden spoons...all become part of the decor, their sculptural shapes called out by the simple backdrop of the Carrara marble backsplash.

White Modern Kitchen With Brass Light Fixture

To help the many textures in this kitchen pop—marble, brass, leather—designers used a base of white high-gloss cabinetry.

White Open Plan Kitchen With Brass Barstools

A cool visual trick happens with these sophisticated barstools: Their white cushions fade into the glossy white island. Their brass-and-black frame stands out, the lean black stripes directing the eye across the kitchen.

White Modern Kitchen With Brass Barstools

The brass frame of these barstools is called into stark contrast against the white island. Their curved shape also brings movement into the kitchen.

Kitchen Island and Bar Area With Art

Three mirrored shelves and an oversized painting with bold splashes of color become a dynamic gallery wall in between the kitchen and dining area.

Mirrored Shelves With Bar Supplies

Mirrored cubes take the bar (wine glasses, wine bottles, mixers) to the wall, saving floor space and making a striking visual statement.

Contemporary Dining Area and Kitchen With Skyline View

Lines are slim and long in the open concept dining area and kitchen to fit a lot in the smaller space, without elements feeling crowded. Brass accents tie the two distinct spaces together.

Condo Dining Room With Green Velvet Chairs

A starburst chandelier and vibrant green velvet chairs make magic in the condo's dining room.

Contemporary Dining Room With Green Chairs

Emerald green velvet chairs pair with a live edge wood table in the dining room, creating a look that matches the grandeur of the LA skyscrapers outside the window. For more texture, a sheepskin rug is layered under the table.

Contemporary Neutral Living Room With Column

The condo uses the urban setting of downtown LA to inspire its interiors. The custom entertainment center and rug echo the patterns made by skyscrapers on display through the living room's huge windows.

Contemporary Living Room With Skyline View

The designers wanted the living room to be approachable and sophisticated; furniture with lower seating was part of the plan. For warmth, they incorporated brass accents and more organic notes like the succulent and wood coffee table.

Gray Contemporary Living Room With Striped Pillow

The design inspiration for the living room's custom entertainment center? The Los Angeles skyline. Chevron stripes were intended to complement, but not compete with, the condo's urban views.

White Floating Shelves With Ceramics

In a refreshing twist on the standard white wall-dark shelf look, this entertainment center uses a dark wood backdrop for crisp white floating shelves.

Black and White Modern Bedroom With Wallpaper

This bedroom takes a chance on dramatic wallpaper...and succeeds with flying colors. The bold black-and-gray pattern is full of movement that works because the rest of the room is kept quiet in comparison.

Contemporary Condo Bedroom With Black Wallpaper

A white bed is a quiet companion to the riot of pattern on this bedroom's wallpapered accent wall.

Contemporary Bedroom With Black Wallpaper

Abstract gray-and-black wallpaper fills this guest bedroom with movement. To temper the bold pattern, the other items in the room are relatively quiet: the white bed, a glass-and-brass nightstand.

Contemporary Bedroom With Blue Bed

The navy blue bed with a tall headboard commands attention in this bedroom, a noble counterpoint to the sweeping city vistas out the window.

Bedroom With Blue Velvet Headboard

A blue velvet headboard steals the scene in this bedroom, beautifully offset by the brass table lamp and a zip of black-and-white stripes.

Bronze Open Shelf With Ceramics

To create a cohesive look when styling this open shelf, the designer used items that all fell within the same color palette: gray, white and gold.
