Originally intended as a chic bachelorette pad for a high-powered woman in the California tech industry, this Marin residence evolved into a new family home when the homeowner met her future husband during the design process. Designer Annie Lowengart married the couple’s individual styles to create a fresh, youthful residence enlivened by bold color.
Large windows let lots of natural light into this sophisticated living room. The combination of a chocolate brown sofa, navy blue walls, lime green accessories and patterned accents creates a relaxing but lively space.
A multicolored floral upholstered headboard softens all the white crispness happening in this traditional bedroom. The deep built-in shelves and storage cabinets on either side of the bed are a brilliant space-saving move.
In this traditional living room, blue built-in bookshelves nobly frame the fireplace providing plenty of storage and display space for this family's collections and photos. An unusual metal pendant light draws the eye upward and brings additional architectural interest to the room.
Green and gold wallpaper inside a bar nook give color and visual punch to this otherwise white modern kitchen dining area. Oversized apples bring a fun twist of whimsy.
Dark wood moldings and built-ins contrast against the grass-green walls of this transitional family room and home office. A comfortable green sofa is a comfortable place to watch TV, while the built-in desk provides a functional workspace.
Mixed medium-scale patterns come together for a cohesive look in this transitional living room. Green accessories complement the chocolate brown sofa and warm wood hues of the side tables.
