This neutral living room is accentuated by pops of green and orange with the addition of throw pillows, artwork and a shag area rug. Amidst the retro color scheme, a skirted sofa, bamboo Roman shades and matted artwork ground the contemporary design.
Designer Ashley DeLapp created this vibrant space with the whole family in mind. By pairing layered geometric patterns with vibrant pops of color, designer she was able to create the ideal midcentury-modern dining room setting. The round table is flanked by chairs decorated in a yellow geometric pattern, while the gray trellis wallpaper provides a striking contrast to the otherwise bright color choices. The room's credenza not only allows for storing extra items, but serves as a furniture accent piece. Geometric lamps decorate the top of the piece, along with beautiful floral arrangements.
A farmhouse inspired dining table flanked by green upholstered armchairs enhances the warm and welcoming atmosphere within the open design of this eat-in kitchen. A marble-topped island creates an intuitive partition providing a designated space for a proper dining area while maintaining the overall openness perfect for entertaining.
A framed jersey and a bookshelf packed with games sets the stage for this fun and entertaining space. Plenty of seating and a comfy shag rag underfoot ensures everyone is always comfortable in the colorful hangout.
This corner reading nook is the perfect size for a small rocker and ottoman. Using picture ledges for books saved floor space and became an art installation.

This bright dining room has a casual mix of geometric patterns, chrome accents and classic wood furniture. A glass dining table keeps a low profile, allowing the patterned chairs and graphic wallpaper to do the heavy lifting.
This cozy gray armchair by the window offers the perfect place to read or just sit and relax after a long day. Neutral furnishings allow for quick and easy accessory updates based on mood and the changing seasons.
An upholstered platform bed paired with a midcentury lucite bench creates a beautiful centerpiece in this transitional bedroom. The gray, hand-woven rug adds texture and grounds the neutral design.
Updating the layout and adding a marble-topped island maintains an open feel in this kitchen space, perfect for entertaining while providing a designated space for a proper dining area. Upholstered cornices add a splash of color and whimsy while the use of fabric softens the hard kitchen edges.
A black lacquer nightstand with mother of pearl knobs provides texture to this master bedroom. A contemporary lamp illuminates the nailhead upholstered headboard and patterns on the pillows. The turquoise vase of flowers puts a pop of color into the room and picks up the hint of cool blue on the headboard.
An easy way to show off colorful dining chairs is to pair them with a glass-top table. Here, a midcentury modern chrome and glass table is encircled by retro diner chairs in a playful lattice-inspired design. In this dining room makeover, designer Ashley DeLapp's initial plan was to use a banquette with a long oval table for dining room seating, but she realized it wasn’t the best solution since it wouldn’t allow room for a storage piece. The designer instead chose the Platner table because it was round –– allowing for an easier flow in the small space –– and fitting for the midcentury-modern theme.
This room is bright, fun and stimulating. It features a small reading nook, graphic black-and-white wallpaper, and a small desk.
The symmetrical balance in this living room is undeniable but other elements may not be quite so obvious. Such as the pale gray walls that balance the dark brown chesterfield sofas and lighten the space. Similarly, sleek, feminine elements like the x-bench balance the leather sofas' masculine lines.
