Glamorous Dining Room

Graphic wallpaper and a crystal chandelier add contemporary glamour to this formal dining area, thus balancing the room's traditional features. Six upholstered armchairs and an elongated table ensure plenty of room for guests and their dinner plates. 

Golden Bar Cart

In the corner, a golden bar cart keeps liquor and glasses on hand for entertaining into the evening. Thanks to its metallic hues, the cart easily stands out against the patterned wallpaper, creating additional visual interest.

Colorful, Contemporary Family Room

With bright accents and bold artwork, the adjacent family room is rich with color. Two brown armchairs, a faux-fur ottoman and a large sofa create a comfortable seating area where guests can chat and admire the lucite coffee table. 

Unexpected Accents

Gilded accents shine against the family room's soft gray walls, helping to brighten the space with another dose of color. A southwestern skull and side table with a flowing base are unexpected but stylish focal points. 

Black and Gold Dresser

Against the side wall, a black and gold dresser provides extra storage for odds and ends. Where the white lamp and framed prints add height to the vignette, the ram and spike sculptures balance the tabletop. 

Eclectic Sitting Area

The far corner of the room features a mix of unexpected accents, from faux-grapes and orchids to leopard-print pillows and a southwestern-style skull. Together, these pieces form an eclectic sitting area that's both comfortable and full of visual interest. 

Fireplace Features Colorful Artwork

White walls, a white marble fireplace and faux-fur ottoman provide the perfect backdrop for bold artwork. Where the ottoman offers a cozy seat by the fire, the artwork enlivens and warms the crisp walls. 

Color-Coordinated Bookshelf

With novels arranged by the colors of their spines, the built-in bookshelf is both functional and a feast for the eyes. Bookends, picture frames and other accents break the colors and add texture.  

Full View Family Room

A full view of the family reveals black floors in a striking contrast to the light gray walls. Colorful accents and furnishings add a playful touch to the sophisticated setting. 

Comfortable and Colorful Living Room

Vibrant accents extend into the living room, where a blue velvet chair and light gray sofa meet to provide comfy seating for the whole family. Patterned curtains on either side of the TV bring energy and movement to the setting.

Blue Velvet Armchair

A comfy blue velvet armchair is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a good book. The small lucite end table provides just enough room for a stack of books, while a metallic floor lamp offers extra light for reading into the evening. 

Mid-Mod Breakfast Nook

Trendy in gray and white, the breakfast nook features pops of color in the light fixture, banquette pillow and floral centerpiece. Midcentury modern furnishings complete the design, inviting guests to sit and stay a while.

Cheery Breakfast Nook

A collection of small vases with hot pink flowers act as the centerpiece for this cheerful breakfast nook. A multi-color striped pillow and yellow dome light fixture brighten the space further. 

Yellow Kitchen Island

In an all-white kitchen, a vibrant yellow island draws the eye and becomes a cheerful focal point. A trio of metallic barstools line the countertop for another chic eating space.
