Although this smaller apartment has a blank white canvas as a backdrop for the walls and some of the furnishings, this interior allows the colorful artwork to pop and make an impact as each individual piece stands out in its space. This is similar to an art gallery with all white walls which really accentuates the artwork. If you want to bring in color and/or change the feel of a room art can really transform a room!
So this is a photo of Patrick Dempsey’s living room at his Malibu home. The wall of firewood provides a focal point with the fireplace and also provides a wall of art. One questions though do you really need that much firewood in Malibu?! Love the earthy and natural feel of the room though. It is a place that looks welcoming as a cozy place to lay down and read a book.
Color! It is such a simple idea but can be translated so differently. In America most of the exteriors of homes are muted pale tones, except for Miami:), and the interiors can have brighter pops of color. On the other hand many foreign countries do the exact opposite with the exterior of the buildings being vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows and the interiors are modern with muted neutral tones. Why do you think that is?
What a cool design, maybe not in your everyday dining room, but what fun it would be to have a swing at the dining room table. Life is too short to sit stationary.
Who ever thought shag would come back…but this is a whole new take on a chair!
How would you like this as your bedroom?

Very cool table and artwork… really looks like paint is dripping on the floor! Kids would love this one:)
I love the cornflower blue and harvest gold accents which make for a bright and vibrant kitchen. The sliding blue barn door is a beautiful and creative accent to cover the pantry. Additionally the step up into the cozy nook of an eating area is a fantastic use of space, with the chalkboard accent and extra storage above!
