With clean white walls, soft natural light and a spacious rug underfoot, the living room of this historic Cambridge, Mass., home is at once bright and ethereal. Patterned pillows add subtle visual interest to the sofa, as well as encourage rest and relaxation with man's best friend.
The white color palette from the living room space continues into the bedroom space of this loft apartment. Soft, white linens adorn the bed, reflecting the light from the ceiling high windows. Curtains control the light that enters the space and create privacy, while live edge nightstands and an Asian inspired screen complement the ones that are housed in the living room area.
Cheery accessories brighten the look of this kids' bedroom (home to two girls). The colorful kilim rug comes from Mohr + Mcpherson. The neutral Ikea dresser adds storage and a landing base for two brass reading lamps from Target.
Against the wall in the loft space, designers created vignettes to meet the owner's needs. In one corner, a blue chair rests in front of a bookshelf to create a reading nook bathed in light, while just a few feet down a keyboard sits underneath a window, providing the owners with a creative space in their loft.
Designer wanted to create an elegant space with plenty of light and lots of texture, so they made the most of the natural light that fills this space by painting the walls white and adding a white sofa, bookshelf and cabinets to reflect light. Then, they brought in pieces like the Asian inspired artwork on the wall, the woven chair and the live edge table to add warmth and texture to this bright space.
Designers wanted to take advantage of the abundant natural light that spills into the space from the floor to ceiling windows. To highlight this aspect of the space and create a clean, bright space, the walls were painted white to reflect the light, and white furniture was set up in the space. To add warmth, designers hung an Asian inspired wall hanging and brought in a blue and white chair to give the space a bit of personality.
A closer look at the living room corner reveals the designer's attention to scale and detail, with two copper frames and a tall plant adding height to the space. Below, mixed-patterned pillows pair well together thanks to their complementary colors.
A warm wood console table greets visitors at the door of this midcentury home, as well as provides storage for books, keys and mail. To complete the vignette, designer Barbara Vail hung a round, gold-trimmed mirror, which helps to make the small space feel larger and more open.
The Kokeshi dolls in this girls' bedroom are from a local kid's shop and the designer framed an eclectic selection of art pieces (including from artist Saar Manche) to create a cohesive gallery. The unicorn lamp was a magical Target discovery!
