Those colorful doors are amazing! Investing in an unusual door is always slightly risky, but the risk really pays off in this small yet exciting apartment interior. A bold striped rug and neon orange chandelier add a touch of pop art flair. Yellow is an energetic color, but it doesn’t have to be loud – here, select red and orange accents help bring those sunny yellow tones down to earth. Subdued goldenrod is a staple where relaxing colors are concerned.
The double height in this living room was used to add a literal accent wall into the room. This gives privacy from the outside, but allows the homeowners to enjoy the 3-D view given by the glass walls. A problem that often occurs with double height living rooms is that sometimes the upper and lower spaces look disjointed. This designer expertly used wooden elements to join the two spaces, creating a unified room that works well with all the different elements. The warm wooden panels mesh well with room’s furniture, especially the scandinavian chairs and exposed windows. In this room, the designer made masterful use of the house’s unique structure to create a visually stunning area. The double height living room allows this vision to be fully realized, removing the hindrance of a traditional ceiling.
The designer of this first living room utilizes glass panels in golden frames to create a unique and sophisticated accent wall that stretches up to the ceiling. The living room looks more spacious and the top floor’s windows add to the room’s natural light. This house is smaller than the first, but the high ceiling and large windows allow for the illusion of space. Due to the extra space thanks to the high ceiling, the designer was able to add a stylish mounted bookshelf.
