A home makeover with flair for thrift -- and a bright pillow addiction -- makes a new 1,200-square-foot condo reflect a vintage-modern style.
This Southern California homeowner created a design that's a liberation of color with plenty of space to breathe. The feel of the corner is removed by painting a section of wall vibrant orange, giving the illusion of greater space while also defining a nook without expensive architecture.
Paint floating shelves the same hue as your wall, then accessorize with accents in contrasting colors. For example, white shelves on a white wall nearly disappear and allow these colorful accessories to shine.
A combination living/dining room allows for an open feel. A mirror placed on the bold stripe on the wall further opens the room.
Ending a stripe on the wall where the dining room ends instills a sense of definition between the two rooms.
The timelessness of this late '60s buffet builds a foundation for eclectic accents. Layering white accessories against a white background reflects a design-without-clutter mantra.
Here, a circle-motif decorative screen separates the living area from the entryway. See-through elements add architectural division without heavy construction or blocked views.
The master bedroom has a mature, masculine look that departs from hot hues found elsewhere in the home. Using rich chocolate tones and muted blues creates sophistication. This mid-century reading chair was just over $100 and gives a plain wall artistic flair thanks to its strong shape.
Throughout the condo, painted blocks of color in strategic places highlight groupings and collections. Here, an espresso brown is a rich backdrop for white accessories.
