Designer Amanda Nisbet’s Perfect Living Room

May 8, 2011 in Beige, Bright, Classic, Hottest Designers, Living room, TV Camouflage

Ever since I started blogging I’ve kept images of Amanda Nisbet‘s dreamy living room, in my inspiration folder. What a delight it was to find new and updated pictures of Amanda’s home in this weeks New York Social Diary. In addition to lots of gorgeous images, the accompanying interview is a great read, as Amanda proves to have a personality equal to her natural sense of style.

I absolutely adore the color palette of Amanda’s living room; yellow beige accented with coral red and raspberry pink, perfectly framed with dark brown.

*

Aren’t those brass palm trees awesome? Every little detail is just perfection (in my opinion).

*

Amanda created two distinct seating areas in her living room by placing two sofas back-to-back, with an acrylic console table in between. A perfect place for a pair of lamps..

*

..and beautiful flowers! Ranunculus are my favorite flowers, what’s yours?

*

The opposite seating area. Is that a TV in the china cabinet? Best TV camouflage I’ve seen in a long time (although I really enjoyed Kelly Giesen’s fireplace TV too).

*

I just adore Amanda’s style, especially the way she mixes classic pieces with modern ones. Her color palettes are always cheerful and happy, probably derived from her personality ;)

Visit NYSD to the rest of Amanda’s home, you don’t want to miss this, trust me =)

Home Office From Vision to Completion

June 3, 2010 in Blue, Chic, Home office, Hottest Designers, TV Camouflage, Wallpaper / Tiles / Murals

You have probably seen the designs of Meg Braff before as her work has been published in a lot of the major design magazines. New York based designer Meg of Meg Braff Interiors definitely has a portfolio of work worth looking into, lets take a look at her personal combined home office/dessing room from idea to completion:

blue and white living room sketch by meg braff

It’s so much more fun to look into a designers work when we get to see the designers vision for the space. This sketch shows a chic white and blue room with a base of chinoiserie chic mixd with traditional pieces. It’s not an easy feat to create a calmĀ  look with this whimsical Bob Collins chinese lattice wallpaper, but Meg definitely succeeded.

And here it is in all its glory! The final result is pretty darn similar to her original drawing. Notice how she replaced the original two white lamps on the desk with one blue, and added the two framed blue coral prints on the window instead. She kept the red detail planned for the desk but in the form of a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

I love these flowers, but can never remember their name. Anyone?

Here is the seating area. The whimsical wallpaper is balanced by symmetry and monochromatic (one colored) fabric.

In the original plan (first image) she imagined these two chairs grouped with the blue sofa (former picture). Here they are placed by the fireplace, but for all we know this is just for photo styling. Notice how true Meg kept to her original plan, even the top shelf decor on the white chinoiserie TV cabinet is just like in her sketch.

In an interview with House Beautiful Meg answered the question of what was the favorite room in her house like this:

My husband and I both love the dressing room in the master bedroom. It’s so summery and light and really has everything: comfortable seating, a fireplace, a desk in the window, a concealed television and wonderful closets. The blue Bob Collins bamboo trelliage wallpaper we picked grounds it nicely and gives it balance since everything’s off-center in the room.”
