White Foyer With Gold-Trimmed Mirror

A black front door creates a beautifully bold contrast against the white walls and ceiling of this modern foyer. Uncovered windows flood the space with natural light, making the small space seem more airy and bright. A woven area rug below warms the floor.

Hallway Showcases Bright Design

Custom-stained polished concrete flooring is the perfect fit for this cool, modern home. White walls and ceiling catch the natural light for an illuminated look throughout the space. 

Global-Chic Living Room

Gubi “grasshopper” reading lamps enhance the modern-with-a-dash-of-fun look of this open living room. A sleek white sofa blends with the bright monochromatic scheme, while a charcoal gray textured fireplace surround and orange accents add a splash of color.

Charcoal-Gray, Textured Surround

Inspired by the international bazaars of the homeowner's travels, the fireplace is adorned with a white African headdress, sourced at a local flea market, and matching baskets and vases. A walnut built-in media cabinet below the TV adds function, gravitas and warmth to the color scheme, while a coffee table grounds the setting.

Abstract Art With Lavender Chairs

Against the back wall, layers of textures, from the wallpaper to the sideboard face and pillows, create an organic space with depth. With blue and purple tones, the abstract painting easily complements the lavendar side chairs.

Modern Kitchen With Orange Accents

The deep orange color of the area rug catches the eye in this modern kitchen, as well as complements the abstract artwork. Overhead, a trio of penant lights illuminate the island for easy meal-prep and entertaining. 

Herringbone Backsplash, Teardrop Pendant

Tractor seat barstools welcome guests to perch next to the new waterfall countertop, which is paneled in solid walnut. For the tile backsplash, the designer created visual interest by installing a herringbone pattern; the gray tile stands out against the white cabinetry and adds depth to the design. 

Dining Room With Contemporary Touches

For a personal touch, the homeowner wanted to incorporate the dining table and chairs she had inherited from her grandmother. The chairs were recovered in a warm, textured fabric selected to harmonize with the open space, while a custom-sized wool rug and a “sculptural luminary” above support the aesthetic.
