Modern Entryway Turned Art Gallery

To encourage flow from the front door to the rest of the home, designer Joe Human layered this modern entryway with polka dot wallpaper and wood floors in copper. Three evenly-spaced paintings of iconic heroines further enliven the walls and help transform the space into a gallery for pop art.

Whimsical Chairs + Vintage Details

To keep all eyes on his client's artwork, designer Joe Human outfitted this eclectic corner with chairs that boast small-scale patterns. A metal shelf centers the vignette and turns the bachelor's favorite possessions into a topic of conversation.

Cohesive, Neutral Accents

For a truly cohesive look, the designer also decided to keep the room's contemporary, midcentury and ancient accents within the same neutral color palette. A blue area rug softens the floors, as well as provides a splash of visual contrast.

Corner Showcases Art Collection

Much like the Museum of Modern Art, this corner of the living room feels carefully curated, with a Greco-Roman bust and polka dots driving the design. A cool, midcentury modern chair invites the homeowner to sit and reflect in his private gallery.

Intimate Entertaining Spaces

On the other side of the room, a small dining table and a mix of chairs give the bachelor additional space to entertain friends. After enjoying their meal, guests can head over to the plush sofa for drinks and more casual conversation.

Access to Private Courtyard

Behind the dining area, double doors lead into the private courtyard. Here, two wire chairs ensure that there's plenty of seating for guests, while blue and white pillows provide additional style and comfort.

Outdoor Space With Moroccan Influences

An oversized area rug in blue warms the outdoor sitting room, making the space feel calm and comfortable for year-round entertaining. Gold accents, patterned pillows and potted plants evoke thoughts of a chic, Moroccan bizarre and so help bring the owner's travels back home.

Cushioned Bench + Copper Lanterns

Cast in the warm glow of small lanterns, this cushioned bench becomes a relaxing spot for reflection. A wall of ivy nearby adds natural greenery to the space, as well as softens intrusive noises.

Modern Kitchen With Dark Cabinets

Back in the kitchen, dark wood cabinets provide a rich contrast to the walls and offer essential storage for plates and utensils. A large marble-topped island allows for easy meal prep and doubles as a stylish place to eat breakfast.

Dining Room Includes Pop Art Marilyn

A hot pink portrait of Marilyn Monroe adds a dose of glamour to the dining room. Glass pendant lights and copper barstools further the image's enchanting, Old Hollywood look.

Copper and Cowhide Barstools

For added visual interest, designer Joe Human covered the copper chairs in faux-cowhide. Thanks to their splashes of white, the custom cushions both complement the island and make for an eclectic yet cohesive design.

Corner Boasts Vintage Popcorn Maker

In the far corner of the room, a whimsical red popcorn maker keeps the dining area from feeling too formal. A round chandelier hangs overhead, brightening the space and drawing interest to the ceiling.

Master Suite With Luxe Treatments

Taking a quick right off the kitchen leads into the master bedroom. Here, a floor-to-ceiling mirror behind the TV makes the space appear twice as large, while indigo wallpaper and a plush bed invite the bachelor to relax after a day out on the town.

Tufted Headboard + Pillows

To ensure that the master bedroom was equal parts playful and dramatic, the designer paired a tufted headboard with two modern bedside lamps. Throw pillows in a variety of styles and textures ensure the owner will sleep well.

Soothing Blue, Scalloped Wallpaper

Behind the bed, indigo wallpaper becomes a soothing backdrop for a night-in. A royal blue bedside table with gold studs offers room for necessities like books or a glass of wine.

Nightstand Displays Art, Books

With room underneath for sculptures and books, this royal blue end table is both stylish and functional. Patterned curtains and a contemporary rug accentuate the piece's blue hues and tie the room together.
