    • Savvy Space

      The modern, '60s era building was beautiful, but the condominium was in bad shape. The first step to renovate the space was to paint the walls bright. A partial wall, painted in a deep orange turned something plain into an architectural focal point. Pops of orange integrate the color into the space for a pulled-together look.

    • Dual-Purposed

      The combo of furnishings from the midcentry modern era with a Scandinavian-influenced design creates a "modern whimsy" feel. This low-slung Danish modern teak sofa bench is the epitome of form following function with it's cushioned seating area and end table.

    • The Good Life

      The hardwood frame on the couch indicated the real deal from the '70s. The couch was found at a consignment shop and was then reupholstered in timeless brown linen. The yellow walls make the room appear larger than it is.

    • Pop Art

      By not putting a lot of permanent pattern in the home's design, most of the pattern pops through from pillows, textiles, art, and accessories. These are things that can be moved around or replaced more easily.

    • Beautiful Blend

      These Chinese Chippendale chairs were found at a consignment shop and are intricate pieces that are great companions to the Saarinen pedestal table. The real beauty of classic design is how easily the pedigreed pieces blend together.

    • Pretty Painting

      Colors that keep the eye moving fluidly across the room, coined as design rhythm, were used for the palette. Three hot colors used in this space include imperial yellow, tangelo orange, and dove white.

    • Creative Collectibles

      An antique trunk is the perfect height to use as a bedside table for a low bed frame. Use books as pedestals that will allow your favorite pint-size pieces more prominence. With the added visual weight of stacked books, a figurine stands out against the rest of the decor.

    • Red Hot

      A touch of grace takes groupings from canned to clever. Layer on a bit of nature, a vintage find, or a treasured memento to add emotional depth and visual interest, such as the grouped items on the red lacquer tray shown here.
