Clean Layered Living Room

May 26, 2011 in Brown, Dramatic, Glamorous, Hottest Designers, Living room, Modern

Oh how I love a beautiful dark wall contrasted with white. The extra spark added by silver, gold and mirrored accents really makes this living room a dream come true. It’s the home of Janet, who is part of the Heather Garrett Design team.

This room is so simple but layered at the same time. Clean shapes and colors are softened by interesting patterns, beautiful texture and shiny surfaces.

The entryway is a perfect example of how classic elements can be mixed with natural ones. LOVE the coral lamps! What do you think?

Tips of the Trade: Jeff Andrews

For a long time I’ve been drooling over this bedroom, not knowing who designed it:

When watching some videos over at LXTV’s Open House I immediately recognized the bedroom from the video. Turns out this is the personal bedroom of Interior Designer Jeff Andrews. In the video, Jeff shares a few of his tricks, like having a desk doubling as a dining table! Amazing!

I adore Jeff‘s dramatic dark brown walls. Jeff mentions that a dark wall color doesn’t mean the room will look smaller, which makes a lot of sense as dark colors are considered receding. The best thing about dark or very rich wall color is the way you can play with contrast. Jeff does this by collecting and displaying white pottery.

You can see the bedroom from the hallway. Jeff notes in the video that he placed the great mirror between the entry and bedroom to open up the space. See how it reflects the light!

The living area is simple and chic. I’ve featured some of Jeff’s designs earlier is this hilarious post called “Case Study: My Hubby on Masculine Interiors“.  And that’s exactly what I adore about Jeff’s designs.. They are layered, inviting and interesting at the same time as being quite masculine.

This is Jeff‘s desk/dining table. Love all the flowers and plants in his home. I’m all for bringing natural elements in.

The color palette is so fresh and clean. The golden accents adds a touch of glamour.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the world map as wall decor. This time it is framed in gold, and definitely looks sophisticated. Funny how “small” details make such a big difference =)

The fabric on the chairs by the desk is so chic. It’s the same fabric as on the pillows in the first two pictures.
