An eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories juxtaposes against the traditional architecture of this Boston home. Teal barrel chairs flank the classic fireplace, and a trio of metallic gold tables are grouped together in the center of the room. Abstract art adds color to the space.
Soft yet strong, this family room combines elements of country living with a modern twist. The focal point of the room is the large folk art painting of Native American women that ties in with the dark woodwork of the room and its brick fireplace surround. Otherwise, the room features comfortable, cozy furniture with a more delicate color palette of green, blue and beige.
The vaulted ceiling creates a picture-perfect frame for this colorful, eclectic living room. A gray fireplace pops off the pink wallpapered wall behind it while patterned accent pillows and a speckled rug are visual confetti in the heart of the room.
Designer Ana Donohue defines this contemporary living room as "Bermuda in the city," as it suggests a subdued glamor with its soft color palette and minimalist approach. The unusual shade of blush in the grass cloth wallpaper sets the tone for the room and allows the club chairs to make a strong, ultra-sophisticated statement. The mirror and the opaque glass chandelier add yet another modern touch.
Continuing her theme of "Bermuda in the city," designer Anna Donohue created a teenage retreat that is replete with fun patterns and colors. The bed and wall covering are simple in design, but graphic patterns in the pillows, Roman shade and bulletin board give the room a bold look. A black industrial-style lamp adds whimsy and spunk.
Soft, sophisticated and inviting, this living room displays a subdued color palette as its backdrop, with pops of color, pattern and accent pieces for pizzazz! Especially fetching is the unusual glass disc chandelier that hangs in the center of the room that complements the mirrored wall hanging over the sectional sofa. And white tone-on-tone draperies add a wonderful lightness to the space.
Combining the best of country living with the casualness of contemporary, the designer used analogous colors to combine the look. Graphic-patterned draperies pop against the dark grass cloth wallpaper while they merge with the cream-colored adjacent wall. The room suggests comfort, simplicity and an invitation to rest.
Each corner of this living room is a treasure for the eyes, with carefully positioned furnishings that accentuate colors in a certain way. For example, the turquoise blue found at the top of the contemporary artwork in the entryway is the exact hue as the stripes of the wing chair in the living room. Likewise, deep orange is seen in the pillow on the chair, the bolster pillow on the bench and the urn on the dining room sideboard.
Everything about this room voices its comfort and charm, beginning with its hint of green wall color and continuing with designer Ana Donohue's choice of furnishings, window treatments and accent pieces. The colors are soft, clear and harmonious--with an aesthetic that says, "You are home!"
This gorgeous kitchen layers in visual interest via differing textures: white tile for the walls, pale wood, metal and opaque glass cabinets. White countertops are a crisp finish to the small space.
The geometric shapes layered into this sophisticated kitchen become a work of art in and of themselves. A metal floating shelf crosses over the white rectangular tiles, offset by striking pitchers, a glass bottle and a pretty, graphic hand towel.
An eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories juxtaposes against the traditional architecture of this Boston home. A graphic-patterned banquette pairs with a chunky black dining table and contemporary chrome dining chairs. Bold abstract art adds color to the space, while hardwood floors ground the room.
